Martyn’s Bridal Session {Old Salem/Winston Salem Wedding Photography}

Oh my how I adored photographing Martyn’s bridal portraits.  We shot her session at Old Salem in the spring and the dogwoods were just beginning to bloom.  We had some gorgeous light that day and got to play around a bit with different looks.

Alicia & Chase’s Wait Chapel Wedding {Wake Forest University/Winston-Salem Wedding Photography}

Some weddings are an absolute blast and flow beautifully from beginng to end.  Alicia and Chase’s wedding at Wait Chapel was one of those weddings.  In the week leading up to the wedding I got a tiny bit worried when I learned that the memorial service for Maya Angelou was being held the same day at Wait Chapel.  Alicia was assured by the folks at Wait Chapel that all would be perfect for her nuptials and indeed they were.  Oprah even allowed the flowers from the memorial  to be used for the wedding ceremony.  What an honor!  It felt so fitting that such a beautiful soul was honored at Wait Chapel earlier in the day and the day ended with a celebration of a union of love.

We arrived super early just to be certain there were no traffic issues or problems getting into the chapel but entrance was a breeze and we even snagged a fabulous parking space.  The guys were the first to be photographed and I knew right away that this group was going to be insanely FUN!  You will see that there are many laughter filled photos and that is because the entire day was truly like that…it was just pure FUN!  This whole bridal party was one of the most energetic and personable groups I have worked with.  I felt like I was in an episode of Friends most of the day…either that or a Musical because there was lots of singing and dancing going on.

One of the most memorable things about Alicia & Chase’s wedding was when Chase played piano and his best man, Adam, sang during the prelude.  These two have some skills!  I also will never forget the awesome cake topper that was so perfect for them or Chase and Adam breaking it down to some old school Mariah Carey (Fantasy for those of you wondering).  Alicia and Chase shared one of the sweetest first dances I have ever seen.  It wasn’t super emotional or filled with tears but they were laughing, singing and just having an absolute blast with each other.

So, having said all that please enjoy some of my favorites from Alicia and Chase’s wedding!

Alicia’s Wait Chapel Bridal Session {Wake Forest Bridal Session}

Alicia and Chase were married this past weekend at Wait Chapel in Winston-Salem, NC.  There will be a whole post about that amazingly fun wedding!  I can easily say their bridal party was one of the most fun groups of people I have ever worked with.  Since the wedding has passed I can now safely share her bridal portraits with the world.  This was a fabulous session since we were able to take advantage of the chapel’s stunning architecture and windows as well as the grounds surrounding the chapel.


Laurel & Wess {Winston Salem Outdoor Wedding}

I will have to say I knew this wedding was going to be fun!  I have know Wess’ mom for a good while and she has always been a blast to be around so it was a given.  Laurel and Wess said their vows in the backyard of Laurel’s aunt’s house.  It wasn’t just any backyard.  It was a waterfront backyard with loads of trees, flowers and just gorgeousness.



Ben & Laura {Tanglewood Engagement Session}

This couple was so easy to work with and Laura has THE BEST EXPRESSIONS!  I just loved every minute of this session and we dabbled in all sorts of lighting to get a variety of images.  I can not wait for their June wedding in Durham…fun times will surely be had!
