Tim + Mary Margaret

A Southport NC Winter Wedding

Sometimes

you just need a little break from something to really understand just how amazing it is. It’s not that I didn’t love my job during the middle of wedding season, I did!! It’s the best job in the world! But having a few weekends off to enjoy life, my family and the holidays was a such a gift! We celebrated Christmas and then we were off to Southport, NC to photograph Tim and Mary Margaret’s beautiful winter wedding!! They were married in the quaint little town of Southport, NC. This gorgeous place looks like it could be straight out of a movie!! Oh wait… it is! :) If you have seen the movie Safe Haven, it was filmed right there in the heart of Southport! So cool! I have to admit that as we were driving around and scouting locations, I couldn’t help but think “Josh Duhamel” stood RIGHT HERE!! Between the large trees and the beautiful southern homes with their large porches and columns, it was the perfect backdrop for wedding portraits!

It's Katelyn's Birthday!

And We're Off to Hawaii
kk-26th-birthday

We

have had so many emails asking why Michael does not blog more! Well today is the day! I’m filling in for a quick guest blog post. This is Michael, Katelyn’s husband, and I am blogging today because it is a very special day. Today is Katelyn’s 26th Birthday!!! Katelyn, it has been so exciting to watch you grow into the woman you are today. I can remember the “Katelyn’s Krafts” days when we all thought you were going to paint plates the rest of your life! (Thank goodness that wasn’t the case.) I can also remember this time last year when we were about to take the first steps of becoming a husband and wife team.

A Manassas Battlefield Engagement Shoot

There

are some places in Virginia that I have yet to shoot in. There are a handful of vineyards, a few larger DC venues and several plantations on my “future shooting” list. The Manassas Battlefield was one of those locations!! I LOVE shooting at new locations. There’s something exciting and fresh about changing it up and creating new portraits from scratch! I absolutely loved meeting Dan and Kathleen on this beautiful property last week. Kathleen and I have emailed for what seems like forever and I was so excited to finally give her a hug and chat in person! She’s a sweetheart!

A Winter Engagement Shoot in the Capital

I’m

reaching the point when I finally feel like I’ve been out of college for quite some time. A year or so ago, I felt like I had just graduated and I still had a ton of friends and connections at CNU. Now, most of my friends have graduated and to be honest, if I was to walk around campus, the only people I would really know would be my friends that WORK for the university!! I feel old. However… just a little side note, we do have some pretty awesome friends heading to CNU next year as freshman and we’re SO excited for them!

Merry Christmas!

Love Michael, Katelyn & Bokeh
