"Where do i even begin with Lotus! She is absolutely AMAZING at what she does. I fell in love with her style of photography. Very dark tones but romantic and intimate. She really captures the emotions in her pictures and those are the images you want to have and look back on for a lifetime. Not only did we love her pictures but her personality as well. She was so calming and relaxed that it made us naturally feed off off her. She did both our engagement and wedding photos and everyone LOVED them! We cant wait to work with her again in the future! Thank you." - Quandra & Darian
Andrew and Elizabeth's wedding touched my heart in so many ways.
Bringing together 20 of their closest family and friends around one table they celebrated their love. The tears were flowing throughout the room as they shared vows and made their union official. Everyone in the room had so much love and support for the newly weds. I swear Elizabeth never stopped smiling all day and she's a barefoot babe (woman after my own heart!). ;)
Intimate weddings will forever have my heart. I'm not simply a photographer when intimacy and close-knit experiences are priority. I sat at the table and ate dinner with my couple, their family and got to know them. We all stayed in one small room throughout the day and it never felt awkward as they all brought me in as one of the family.
The experience of someone being vulnerable enough to let me photograph these moments is really special. I can't think of a better way to end 2017!
this couple. Jordan & Paul have been the most calming, fun, wonderful souls to work with.
even from the first moment we began talking about their wedding we had a connection.
i mean, they love led zeppelin as much as i do. they're mountain people and they value art.
and most of all, they valued each other more than anything throughout the wedding process.
there's nothing i love more than a couple who is down to earth and completely obsessed with each other.
so thankful for the clients i get to call friends.
i have constant examples in my life of sweet, enduring, undying love and it's the most beautiful thing.
enjoy these frames from Jordan & Paul's day!

i connected with megan & jake right away at their engagement session.
and as i drove away i was already counting down the days to their wedding.
AND these two had a secret wedding date so i couldn't share my excitement with anyone!
but now that they've have become mr. & mrs. jordan i am SO happy to share this amazing, relaxed, simply gorgeous wedding. topsail beach is like home to them and it was the perfect location for their wedding.
sharks showed up, we took selfies with fishermen on the pier and all in all it was a great day!
