A Southern Bride {Stylized Shoot}

A puppy in a bowtie, and a Southern Belle on a swing?! Yes, please!

I can’t believe I haven’t shared these photos with you yet! Last year I spent an afternoon with gorgeous Ashley, modeling in a Bridal Session for me! I grew up with this gal, and oh my heavens she is beautiful! Thank you SO much for modeling! The shoot took place at the Barn at Chestnut Hill, and sweet Leigh, of Leigh Pearce Weddings helped me cook up this goodness, I couldn’t have done it without you!

Before the shoot, I took Ashley to meet up with Carla White Hair & Makeup, for her amazing skills! We also have to thank Traditions By Anna, in Raleigh NC for the dresses, as well as Sami at Just Priceless for the beautiful bouquet!  I couldn’t do this post without mentioning Ryan of Pecan Pie Puppies for the collar. Y’all seriously go to their Etsy shop, I promise you will find the perfect collar for your sweet pup.   Last, but not least  thanks to my wonderful Ben for managing our at the time sweet (crazy 6 mo. old) little pup Emma, who is dressed up as a boy in the photo! If you all know me, you know I just LOVE this dog!

Luckily enough, my favorite shot was used in my ad for Southern Weddings. Ladies, if you have not checked out this magazine, your planning just won’t be complete without it, I promise! You can order a copy of Southern Weddings V5  here! 

So take a look through these images, and just think of that warm weather!(: It’s is much better than the 36 degree weather I just walked Emma in a few minutes ago!

Mary Katherine’s Bridals {North Carolina Wedding Photographer}

Well, MK and Eric tied the knot this past weekend at Magnolia Manor (images to come!), and I can finally share this bridal session with you all! I’m in love with this Bridal Portrait, I mean look at my beautiful bride, and that perfect yard!

Boy did we luck up with weather for MK’s Bridals! All day we checked back and forth with one another as the weather prediction would jump from 10% chance of thunderstorms to 100%, then back to 20% an hour later. I’m so glad we decided to go for it! When I arrived for the session, it was POURING, but MK was sipping a glass of wine with her Mom, and wonderful family friends, who allowed us to use their beautifully landscaped yard and house for the evening. So we just waited it out. Lucky for me, I got to hear about some more wedding details, and make some wonderful new friends! Once the storm finally passed we  got set up (as Mr. Stephen blew off the grass for MK’s dress, Thank you!!!).

So take a coffee break and look through this images! Leave the newlyweds some warm wishes! I can’t wait to share their lovely wedding soon!!
