Alison and Matt

We had the opportunity to photograph the wedding of Alison and Matt on Saturday... after a week of unseasonably warm temperatures, it turned out to be pretty cold and rainy. Being December, everything was inside at the Regency Room, but we dodged a few raindrops and got some great shots on Elm Street after the ceremony.

the beautiful bride...

the dashing groom...

the dress had great detail...

Matt's grandmother hand made these ornaments... it's a translucent copy of their invitation, inside a glass ball - we were impressed!

and it's a done deal...

the cake from Ganache was as delicious as it was beautiful...

a little experimenting with lighting near the end of the night...


we had a great time - thanks for braving the cold!

Lindsay and Jason

Jonathan walked a bit around downtown Greensboro with Lindsay and Jason, who are getting married this June in Hickory. It was a bit chilly, but the walking kept us warm... plus running from the locomotive really got the heart rate up!

It started out innocently enough...

then on the steps of the old police HQ...

on to the tracks...

and here comes the train!

but we made it out alive...


thanks guys, looking forward to the wedding!

Brittany and Brianna

Sorry we haven't blogged in about a week - super busy! But we simply had to put a few from our senior session with Brittany and Brianna. They are beautiful twins, but they had their own personalities and didn't fall into that "let's always dress alike" trap. Here are a few of our favs...

Brianna...

Caroline and Mark

We were honored to photograph Caroline and Mark's wedding at Tuscany Gardens this past Saturday. There were some cute Halloween touches, but not overdone, and the orange flowers were amazing! The happy couple were so fun and easy to work with! Thanks guys for finishing up our wedding season in great style!
