Rachel + Ayo | JC Raulston Arboretum: Raleigh, North Carolina Engagement Photographer

Whenever I get to travel for a shoot or wedding, I'm the happiest girl, even if it's just to North Carolina!! Destination photography is my biggest dream and slowly but surely, I'm watching that dream come true. :) I got to go down to Raleigh for Rachel and Ayo's shoot last week and although it was 100 degrees, we had so much fun at the JC Raulston Arboretum! I felt like I was in San Diego with all the cacti and palm trees. These two are getting married on a rooftop in Raleigh this fall and I cannot WAIT!! But for now, here's a look at their sweet love for one another!

Heather + Andrew | Lyndhurst, Virginia Wedding Photographer

Where do I even begin with Heather and Andrew?! I shot their engagement photos back in late fall and as soon as I met them, I was excited for their wedding. They are such genuine, kind people and it was so obvious that they were destined to be together. I loved getting to know them and left that shoot feeling like their friends. Heather and Andrew were involved in Young Life at JMU which I know a bunch of people through so seeing familiar faces in their bridal party and at their reception made their wedding day even more fun.

They wandered all over Heather's family's property with me and gave me ample time for pictures. And when I get a lot of time for pictures, I usually have a lot of favorites! :) It's hard narrowing down for a post when you like every photo!! These two and their joy is contagious and I can't wait to share that with you! Heather and Andrew, I hope you had an incredible time in Hawaii and that this post is a bright spot in your newly married life! Love you two!

Andrew and his friends MADE those wooden benches!! I love special touches like that! They were beautiful!

So fun getting to work with Chris!! Check out his video here!
