Never have I had the pleasure of working with a couple so perfectly in love with each other. Danielle and Joey’s happiness and love for each other absolutely shone through the entire day of their wedding. Oscar Blues REEB Ranch was filled with laughter, friends, tons of fun, and above all – love.
One of the many – many things I loved about Joey and Danielle’s wedding was the inclusion of everyone’s dogs! Tegan, the bride’s beautiful Black Lab was the “Dog of Honor” – and fulfilled her responsibilities flawlessly.
The reception was a fun filled and laid back environment, with the awesome live band, Fish Sticks and Brevard’s very talented Matt Gardner. Yard games were played, including “extra large” horse shoes (see photos) which had me in stitches with laughter.
Remember that post a few months back about all the exciting things happening this year in celebration of 10 YEARS of business? Remember the part where I said I would be doing a giveaway or two??? OH YEAH!!
So – I’m announcing the details now!
I will be doing TWO giveaways this year.
The first will be for my portrait clients – a 16×20 CANVAS PRINT from your session!!!

Catherine and Christopher are my latest couple to tie the knot – and what a special day it was. Catherine is honestly one of the sweetest brides I have ever had the pleasure of working with, and it reflected throughout the entire ceremony and reception.
They exchanged vows from one of our most famous overlooks in the mountains, the Fred W. Symmes Chapel in Cleveland, SC. This place is affectionately called by locals “Pretty Place”… and trust me, it IS a very pretty place.
Following the ceremony, we all made our way to downtown Brevard, NC – where we walked along Main Street to Jaime’s Creole Brasserie. If you ever are looking for a fantastic place to eat that is above and beyond the normal small town dining experience, I highly recommend Jaime’s. They atmosphere was relaxed and festive, and the food – to die for!
I’ve been so busy these past two months with photo shoots, projects, and just life in general. I meant to post about the Rolex a little sooner, but I looked up and suddenly it was June! Craziness!
This year, I did something a little differently, I brought my bestest little friend in the whole wide world with me to Rolex… Skippy!
I was a little nervous about how he would handle being around thousands of people, with hundreds of other dogs and of course – the world’s top eventing horses. He handled it like a champ. My biggest concern was cross country day, when the horses would run by us at full speed (engaging his ‘chase the moving thing’ mentality) – but he curled right up and went to sleep at my feet while I photographed everyone.
Experiencing Rolex with a dog this go-’round really made this the best Rolex for me yet. I’m not sure if it was because Skip calmed my stress of getting the perfect shot, or if it just was his attitude of “I’m happy to be wherever you are Mom”… but no matter the reason, Rolex was awesome.
Now for some photos!
Ready to help!
