Gina and Scotty, the wedding

You may remember Gina and Scotty from their photoshoot earlier in the year, and Jonathan and Frank made their way to Grandover for their wedding day on Saturday. The weather was gorgeous, and we were able to get some great shots on the golf course. Here are a few of our faves from the day...

Don't think we could have asked for better weather...

Gina and her girls channeling their inner divas...

Ever seen a bride do the splits? well, now you have... (thanks again to Frank)

Enjoy the honeymoon!

Todd and Robin

Renee joined Todd and Robin for their nuptials at the O'Henry Hotel on Saturday. They dated for 7 years before tying the knot - a trend which two of Todd's brothers also kept with before getting married! The couple were low key and so much fun to work with. At the end of the evening, Todd sang to his new bride and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Congrats guys!

The lovely bride...


The dashing groom...

the mad hatter cake was by Delicious...


a timeless portrait...

Van and Michael, the wedding

Jonathan and Jarvis spent the day in Raleigh and Durham photographing Van and Michael's wedding ceremonies... the day started at 11am with a Vietnamese tea ceremony, then a traditional western ceremony, and ended at Chamas in Brightleaf Square. There was a lot of love in the air from both families!

the day started off with a bang...

Emily and LJ

Renee and Becki joined Emily and LJ for their wedding in Greensboro on Saturday. The nuptials were exchanged at First Presbyterian (gorgeous) and the reception followed immediately at the very hip Carolina Theater. We had a blast with them, as they were up for anything and everything! It was a great time! Congrats guys!

Family portrait - Charlie Susan and Will

It's been a busy weekend for family portraits - and babies! We love photographing babies and this was no exception. Little Will and Charlie Susan were born only 3 weeks apart. In the words of a proud grandmother, "Be careful what you wish for!" There were so many photo ops, we took several hundred photos. Here are some of our faves. Feel free to leave a comment!
