Jennifer and Mac’s Engagement Session!

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Jennifer, Mac, and I had a lot of fun on Sunday!  It isn’t often I find a couple who are both super-excited about their engagement images.  Both brought props and wardrobe that complimented our shooting areas.  If would have kept shooting if the sun hadn’t set!

Congratulations to you both!  Looking forward to your wedding next year!

Surprise Marriage Proposal!

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

About two weeks before these images were shot, Mitch contacted me about wanting to take some portraits with his girlfriend Kelly.  However he wants to propose to her during the session so we can capture it.  We met at the Lions Club park in Ellerbe first.  We shot some fun images in the park and added Mitch’s dog Romeo in them too.  Just before leaving to go to Ellerbe Springs, Mitch passed a bag to me with some props along with the ring inside.

Above:  The first image from the porch of the Ellerbe Springs.  I was getting excited!  I’m sure Mitch was too.

Above:  The telescope was one of the props we used to set up the proposal shot.  Mitch had the idea of using props that would eventually lead to me handing him the ring box as one of them.

Above:  The he popped the question.  And she said yes!  It was very emotional to witness!

Congratulations to you both!  Thank you for letting me be a part of this.  Also, a big thanks to Donna at Ellerbe Springs and Reba Williams for their help!

Ellerbe Springs!

Ellerbe Springs in Ellerbe, NC is a great place to take bridal portraits.  I have been working with owner Donna for over a year shooting images of brides and couples on their grounds.  I created this blog post so future brides can see the area from my perspective.  Click here to view a gallery of images from the Inn. These will give you a closer look at the overall feel of this quaint area.

Kimberly’s Bridal Portraits at Ellerbe Springs

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

Months before Kimberly’s wedding with Patrick, we shot her bridal portraits at Ellerbe Springs Bed and Breakfast in Ellerbe, NC. The location rests on 50 acres with gorgeous landscapes and cozy rooms for bridal preparation.  Kimberly allowed me to shoot some images of her getting ready for her portrait.

Above: After all was said and done we shot a few more relaxed images.  Thanks Kimberly!
