After more than 15,000 images and 47 total participants, I am proud to show off some of the finished images from my graduation special! Below you will see one photo of each person who I photographed, and I want to take this moment to thank each and every one of you (and to all who contacted me) for your continued support! I know that many of you could have turned to another photographer and received your photos more quickly, or even more inexpensively. To know that you all chose me for this important time in your lives means the world to me! A huge CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to the graduating class of 2010!


Winna & Neil’s DC Wedding! PART ONE

Hi everyone! I’m excited to show some wedding images that I’ve been dying to post from the spring! First off – Winna’s DC wedding! I traveled to our nation’s capitol for the first time in April. Winna and I attended the same high school and college, even working at the same summer journalism program in Chapel Hill. Neil and Winna’s wedding was a blending of cultures and families that was a blast to experience! Thanks for having me 🙂

Here is Part 1, the actual night before the wedding, where Winna & Neil participated in a traditional Haldi Ceremony. They were rubbed with a mixed tumeric paste thought to purify the bride & groom before their big day. Later that night, guests arrived and decorated their skin with mehndi (henna tattoos) and enjoyed DELICIOUS food! Enjoy!

WHERE AM I? Photo Update!

What can I say about April and May?? After several weddings all over and my whirlwind graduation special in Chapel Hill (more than 40 different people – !! ) I am officially home on the Outer Banks to shoot weddings ALL summer long!

After a few technical difficulties (broken camera in April and broken computer in May), I am excitedly back in action… with everything repaired. While I continue to finish up the edits from my past shoots, I wanted to update everyone on the three main projects I’ll be working on over the next several months. Keep checking back – there are lots of fun photos to come 🙂


I can’t wait to post my favorites from the graduation special along with the images from other projects I’ve been doing – I have engagement photos, exciting fashion pics for Anna Miya makeup, and weddings I shot independently! I will be in the Chapel Hill area during most of the month of July, so if you are interested in setting up a potential photoshoot for yourself, a family friend, your kids, your significant other, or any event, please shoot me an e-mail at !


For my fifth summer, I’ll be shooting mostly small, intimate weddings on the Outer Banks for Carolina Wedding Co. – owned and operated by Rev. Shirley Anne! I’ll be updating the Carolina Wedding Co. blog  – click HERE to check it out – with all of our wedding images. Make sure you visit the blog and follow CWC on twitter at @CarolinaWedCo for regular updates.


Julie Dreelin’s Beach Productions | Julie & I are back in the swing of things! I will continue to assist Julie at her weddings and also shoot a few solo weddings for her company, Beach Productions, which was picked for The Knot’s Best of Weddings for 2010! Julie specializes in trendy, upscale wedding photography for the “wedding-istas.” Check out her blog – Outer Banks Beach Style – and official web site – Julie Dreelin’s Beach Productions.
