It’s this beautiful lady’s birthday!!! We are thankful for her every single today but today we get an excuse to talk about it! We could not do life without her. We love her loyalty and dedication to everything she does. Her work ethic and organization are second to none. She’s beautiful on the outside (obviously) but even more so on the inside. She’s so much more than a team member. She’s part of our family and we couldn’t be more thankful for that! Happiest birthday @jenna.goetze! Thank you for being you and for the joy you bring into our lives. We couldn’t imagine life without your smile! Hope today is as special as you are 😘🎉 Photo by @oliviasuriano with makeup by @kmichelleclark
Because sometimes, you just need a little extra love to get through the day. And because I’m obsessed with these two and everything about their day. ⠀⠀ Venue: @raleighcountryclub Videographer: @renato.films Coordinator: @propplaybook Bridal Gown: @gildedbridal Film scan: @photovisionprints
Photographers, it can be uncomfortable to ask for what you need on a wedding day. But I promise, it’s 100% worth it to ask for styling flowers from the florist! Most are more than willing to contribute, and it always, always, always elevates those detail photos!
Wedding pro tip here…make sure to schedule some time to soak in your day. Most of it will be a blur but try to take a few seconds at peak moments to really take it all in. And hire vendors who will help you do that! My brides hear me tell them a thousand times, we plan for buffer room! You’ll most likely end up using it, but in the event that you don’t, you’ll get some truly special moments like this one because you’re not having to rush off to the next big wedding thing. This capture was such a spontaneous one taken on a few seconds after the couple walked back down the aisle. Some weddings we have to rush off to portraits before the sun goes down or the church kicks us out or (insert one of a thousand reasons here), but when wedding days are planned and run smoothly there are times for organic moments like this to happen. Make sure to talk to all vendors involved to have this type of relaxed day! Know what your photographer and videographer need to give you that time, and talk to your planner about how to make it all happen! Photographers, we’ll be talking about this very topic during the workshop and how to help your couples draft a timeline that gives you the creative space to do what they hired you to do, and in return give them them photos of their dreams. There are still a 3 tickets left! Sales close in just a few short days so if you’ve been debating coming this is your last chance!

Film has taught me that I can hand hold a camera at a lower shutter speed than I ever thought possible and that taking one photo at a time is so much more rewarding than burst shooting. Also everything just looks so dreamy. Slowing down with this new medium has been so rewarding. ⠀⠀ Venue: @merrimonwynne Film Scan: @photovisionprints
