chrissy & blair

it's a small world after all. the first time i heard from chrissy about her upcoming june wedding, i didn't expect the groom to be an old college buddy of mine. blair was my dorm neighbor once upon a time in my carolina days. i have a feeling that if i had known chrissy as well at the time, we could have roamed that campus together with the best of 'em!

these two are a prime example of a beautiful carolina couple. they even met at one of the finer places around campus...just kidding chrissy. :)

so excited for chrissy and blair! can't wait to document their day!

danette & mitch

being the blue-blooded carolina girl that i am, i agreed to photograph a wolfpack wedding in april against my better judgement...just kidding. :)

i met danette a few months ago at her wolfpack club office in raleigh. danette is a loyal alumna as well, and so is her fiance', mitch (at least they're not dookies - no offense blue devils, you'd talk the same trash about me, that doesn't mean we can't be friends!).

because i'm a versatile photographer and my ultimate goal is to please my client, i stepped on the ncsu belltower grounds for the first time in my life with this sweet couple. danette laughed, mitch managed to enjoy himself while fighting off a common case of groom photography dread (and a cold), and i...well, i just prayed that none of my college buddies would ride down hillsborough street that afternoon and catch me in the red lands. i'm happy to report that we had a great session and we didn't stay on campus long at all! (still kidding...it was wonderful.)

congratulations to danette and mitch on your beautiful afternoon and your engagement. i had a blast galavanting around raleigh with you two! can't wait to do it again in the spring!

the beast

i love my brides, my babies, my families, and even my businessmen and women, but it's a rare occasion that i get a treat like the one i got on thursday. i received a call from stephen coffman, an old college friend last week who was in need of a photo session. he's a musical madman and he's currently jamming with three other talented local artists. together they have created a jazz infused hip-hop soul band called the beast. please please don't miss out. you can visit them online at http://www.thebeastmusic.com/ or live in action all over durham and beyond.
take a look.
