Anna and Bret at Artists for Humanity Epicenter

Some days? Well. Some days are just pure warmth and sunshine and joy and love and class and style and curls and freckles and pink dresses. This was one of those days.

I met Anna and Bret about a year ago and from the beginning I felt so good about their energy and excitement–for each other and for this wedding.   This incredible wedding was quite the undertaking and in the end it came off beautifully and perfectly.  I had the exquisite joy and honor of working with Mandy Connor of Hummingbird Bridal on Saturday. Our first of several weddings well be doing together this year.   Anna and Bret, I’m so thrilled that I got to be a part of this incredible celebration. Thank you so, so much for trusting me with your phenomenal day.

And now: Mary and Ben in Southern Pines, North Carolina

And then the groom got up on stage and played the drums with his old band and they practically set the whole damn barn on fire it was so hot.


Okay so here’s how this worked. My mom and dad, Tracy and Tom, are close friends with Karen and Norman, Mary’s Mom and step dad. They live in Pinehurst and Southern Pines, North Carolina. Mary and Ben are all in love you know and decided to get married you see and then asked me to come down to North Carolina to photograph it. And I’m endlessly thrilled and thankful they did because this has gone down as one of my very favorite weddings. They had their ceremony at the Arboretum in Pinehurst and then moved it over to the Fair Barn for their impeccably stylish reception.  Thanks to everyone involved for being so gracious and welcoming to me and for being so fun and easy to work with!

Lots of love to you all.

Melissa and Erik’s Black and White State Room Wedding.

Fine art black and white photographer meets fantastic couple planning a black and white wedding and wanting an all black and white wedding album.  Snow begins falling 10 minutes before first look.  Friendships are made. Creative dreams come true.

Once again I had the extreme pleasure and honor of having my amazing friend and outrageously talented photographer Alexandra Roberts as my right had gal. Her incredible shots are also featured below.


Melissa and Erik thank you forever and ever for inviting Alex and I into this fantastic day.
