Oh Kelly & Jared, you sure make engaged look good!! A huge thanks to @kelseynelsonphoto for taking these photos for me!! As soon as they arrived in my inbox, I had to open them up and start editing!! I love that I have such an incredible community of photographers & we can help each other out when needed!! Kelly & Jared really wanted their photos taken in May and since I wasn't able to make it to Raleigh in time, they were so sweet & flexible! Kelsey did a wonderful job and I can't wait to edit the rest!! #teamwork #communityovercompetition
Can't wait to share this gorgeous wedding tomorrow on the blog!! Until then, I'll be cozied up on the couch snuggling my boys and eating chocolate :)!
We're burning up the roads this weekend but I find that our time together in the car brings so much good conversation! Life gets so busy with work and being parents so all this time alone is kinda sweet :). Do you have any fun road trip games/traditions??
All week the forecast called for rain but Ashley & Scott were blessed with a BEAUTIFUL day at @bigspringva !! Congrats you two, it was a wonderful day and we loved being a part of it!!!
I love it when my couples are clearly surrounded by so much love and support in their lives and new marriage! What a blessing! Much like all of the support you have all given me and my friends since I asked you to pray for them a few days ago. Since you all have been asking, I wanted to give you a little update. You can learn more in the link in my profile and also make a donation to help them! Every little bit helps and PRAYER is the most powerful! I know most of you don't know them personally but they are like family to us and we are so grateful for all the love you have showed near and far! God is good and we are trusting in His promises and His perfect healing for Brett! Mitchell and I are on the road this weekend to capture a wedding at @bigspringva 🎉 and then we're Raleigh bound to visit with them again. Thank you ALL for following along and supporting us by supporting Brett and Armelja. We are so grateful for this community!
Joy's dress was classic + timeless + perfect // can I please wear it for just a day?! 🙋🏼
Getting ready with your best friends the day of your wedding!! This part of the day always makes me reminisce of my incredible friends and how thankful I am for each of them! 💕
When your bride has her very own mrs box 🙌 I love capturing the emotion and memories of a wedding day more than anything but details will always be special to me. There is so much thought put into them by the bride and so much history in the heirlooms, it's worth setting some time aside to just focus on those details ✨
In case you missed it, these two are on the blog today! 💕
Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort. He comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any kind of affliction, through the comfort we ourselves receive from God. - 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
I've been pondering how to even share a post and seek your prayers for two of our closest friends. I know that God is sovereign, heartbreaking things happen in this broken, sin-filled world, but the HOPE we have in Christ is that the story is not over. God will right every wrong and wipe away every tear (Rev 21:4). He is loving and compassionate and merciful and gracious. The cross is proof of His love for us (Rom 5:8). But how do we get that message and reminder to people that are rightly shocked by events like this? When I ponder that question I am left with: God must do this, because I cannot. We must ASK GOD to help us and to comfort the Clay's... and so I'm asking YOU to join with us in PRAYER for Brett and Armelja and the rest of their family. Brett was in a tragic bicycling accident Sunday evening and is currently in ICU. He had surgery last night and the surgeons said it went well. We know Brett is strong and he is a fighter and Armelja is the absolute strongest and most supportive wife. We are trusting in God's miraculous healing. We serve an almighty, ultimate HEALER and if you believe this, will you pray with us for Brett? We love you both SO MUCH and are praying. ❤️🙏🏻
Erin and Corey drove over from Raleigh for their engagement session and I'm SO glad they did! Sharing more from their engagement session on the blog today! Isn't her ring lovely?! 😍
