Parent, Grandparent and Keepsake Albums

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

I have had a few inquiries about albums so I thought I would post some example images of Parent, Grandparent, and Keepsake Albums.  They come in either 5×5 inches in size or 10×10.  They can have  10 or 20 images in both sizes.  I have 51 choices as far as covers.  Please contact me for pricing and availability.  Bridal Album images coming soon!


Above: Example of a 5×5, 10 page album.

Kathy and Jeff – Kill Devil Hills 10/03/09

Monday, January 18th, 2010

I’m so thankful my web designer fixed my blog.  I can finally get more content on here.  Kathy and Jeff held a super fantastic wedding outside of a GORGEOUS home in Kill Devil Hills in October of last year.  I’ve had quite my share of “event home” weddings but this one took the cake.  We were close enough to the sound for a beautiful sunset, the grounds were large enough for a tent and there was a nice pool area designated for cocktail hour.  Beautiful.

Above: The event home having just been decorated before the guests arrived.  The blue sash was a GREAT touch to hide the parking areas.

Above: Luckily I got my shots before getting shot!

Above: Why are women (especially moms) better at ties than men?

Above: Suites?  Check.  Sunglasses? Check.  Beer?  Check.

Above: Next to green, purple is my favorite color.  My future home will have a purple door.  I need a volunteer to distract my fiance whilst I paint it.

Above: Yes, I have done this image before but I love it so much!  And it doesn’t hurt the fact that Kathy has perfect legs for it!

Above: Spontaneous image of Kathy less than 10 minutes before the ceremony.

Above: The best part about being a kid at a wedding is you can kick back and chill until a grown up hurries you off to some ceremony!

Above: Kathy gets a kiss from both fathers before being given to Jeff.

Above: The sand ceremony.

Above: I’m all about shooting images from a child’s perspective.

Above: Jeff, I respect you for this.  You did what had to be done to get that garter!  🙂

Above: Congratulations Kathy and Jeff!  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day.
