susan and mackey have an amazing home that overlooks the gorgeous blue ridge mountains in linville, nc. they traveled down to the quaint town and said their i do’s at the wee kirk presbyterian church, which is a sweet little white church tucked into the neighborhood just behind the eseeola lodge. their guests joined them on the deck of their home, with a spectacular view, for a delicious dinner and some great music by karla davis.

susan’s daughter sang the sweetest song to the bride and groom for their wedding present! it brought tears to her mom’s eyes.

i am totally in love with this new venue, the contemporary art museum in downtown raleigh. there is a mix of funky old urban buildings, the modern architectural design of CAM and there is even some wispy grass and pretty trees to soften the urban feel.
jenna and jac had one of the sweetest first looks ever. i think we were all crying! they decided to do a first look and all of the family photos before the ceremony. at first i admit i was a bit intimidated by jenna’s 6 page timeline (LOL), but in the end we worked together to create a great timeline that made for a no stress, great day with lots of amazing photo opportunities! right after the ceremony everyone walked straight to the bus and right into party time! and i have to give jenna and jac a special shout out for being so sweet to mel and i. we actually had our own little “sweetheart” table set up at the reception with the fancy dinner wares and delicious food. thanks guys!

i always have fun when i visit with the green pond boys! this year between fake mustaches, american flags, a dock diving contest and a super-dog named grover we snapped some shots that really capture the fun of summer and the carefree spirit of childhood. this family knows how to do summertime!

i am sorry, but the show “jersey shore” has really given the jersey shore a bad rap. check out this beautiful mother and daughter that i photographed on the lovely beaches of seabright, nj. this is a taste of the real jersey shore!
