christina & brandon

remember my faaaaaaaabulous state fair engagement couple? i knew christina and brandon would have a F.U.N. wedding when i met them, and i was absolutely right! the beautiful bride began her day at the marriott crabtree hotel with her friends and family and would return there later with her new husband for the reception!

these next two photos are courtesy of my wonderful assistant for the day, lisa (check her out at she hung with the boys while i took care of the girls.

off to saint andrews presbyterian church for a gorgeous ceremony. :)

then back to the marriot for some fun before the reception.

it didn't take long for the night to get started. this crowd was ready to party. if i remember correctly, i'm pretty sure this was a little boys II men action.

sorry michelle, but i had to. :) looooooove you!

i loooooooove sparklers!

thanks to mr. & mrs. williams for another beautiful wedding weekend! i'll never forget your reception dance floor as long as i live. much love!

stephanie & david

everyone knows i love my carolina couples. looking back in my files, i've realized that about 70% of the engagement sessions i've done have been on the unc campus. i don't mind at all - what a great excuse to go back to my stomping ground!

i met stephanie and david through another pair of tarheels, and i'm so happy to be a part of their big day in october. these two are a blast to hang around and their laughter is infectious!

brooke & brian

(let's all ignore the fact that this gorgeous rainy day wedding actually happened back in march, k?) i made the trip to kernersville on march 28th to document every moment of brooke and brian's big day! it began with hair and makeup at house of style salon & spa and i had a blast watching brooke transform from an everyday beautiful girl to a knockout glamourous bride!

after a quick drive thru chick-fil-a to re-fuel, we headed to the gorgeous friedland moravian church in winston-salem to prepare for the ceremony and wrap up the finishing touches.

these sassy ladies didn't let a little rain dampen their day. i love rainy day weddings!

when i checked on our groom, brian, i found him with his dad, harry, who gave him a very special family watch to wear down the isle.

here comes the bride!

in a beautiful moment, brooke's mother gave her away.

everyone's smiling now - they're hitched!

after a short and sweet reception at the church, both families headed to outwest steakhouse & saddle to continue the celebration. what a relazing way to keep up the party!
congratulations mr. & mrs. kochanski!!!

i've had so much fun with these babies lately! i did a maternity session for casey and jim back before Christmas, and i thought they were excited that baby then!

callie was born on march 29th, and she's just as beautiful as any kid with two pretty parents could possibly be. maybe it's the daddy's girl in me, but i can't help but love these first couple of images. jim might be a giant compared to his baby girl, but he's not too big to be completely wrapped around her tiny finger.

and maybe my favorite shot of all - i think she may have been trying to tell me to get that camera out of her face before she handled business herself. :) i don't blame her. a little girl's gotta be tough!

congratulations casey and jim on your beautiful beautiful little lady. can't wait to watch her grow!
