What do you think?!

A LOT has happened within the last two months for the business. It’s been a whilrwind! I am so thrilled to be officially re-branded! The updated website has been launched and the new blog made its’ big debut a few weeks ago! Not only did I introduce a new blog, I introduced the DesignBook! Now you can have your VERY OWN space on the blog to collect and categorize your favorites! This was such a huge project and risk for me. No other photographer has done this before and so I was excited/nervous to see how people would react!

The skies were dark

and we were nervous. Very nervous! In just one hour, Mike and Amanda would promise to love each other forever on the beautiful beaches of Nags Head but the black and green clouds were looming in the distance. There was a severe thunderstorm warning in effect until 20 minutes before the ceremony time and we were nervous. Very nervous.

I love them! When I was little, I used to wear headbands and hair clips with HUGE cloth flowers on the side of them.
