Be sure to leave the couple a comment below!

Last week, we trekked to Old Salem for Brandi and Chris' engagement shoot. It was a glorious day and the Fall color was in full effect! Here are a handful of our favorites. We'll keep our fingers crossed for color this vivid next September when they get married at Graylyn. It's going to be gorgeous!

Andy and Liz, the wedding

Jonathan had the honor of capturing Andy and Liz's wedding at the Marriott in downtown Winston-Salem on Saturday. Carol from I do, etc. kept everything running smoothly, and all the details looked great. There were a lot of folks from out of town for this one... lots of northern accents! Also lots of fun was to be had... thanks guys, hope you're enjoying The Dominican Republic!

Teri and Zef, the wedding

On Saturday, Renee joined Teri and Zef for their beautiful outdoor nuptials in Old Salem. The temperature dropped a bit, but the weather turned out to be amazing. Take a look at the happy couple - they decided to see each other before the ceremony and take pictures beforehand - it was a great shoot. Here are some of our faves...

The first meeting...

a quick smooch...

Zef was clowning around the whole time...

Teri has an infectious smile...

lovely fall color...

a picturesque setting...

sparklers to cap off the night!

Carolyn and Jim, the wedding

On Sunday we had the privilege of photographing Carolyn and Jim's wedding. It was quite the learning experience, as their ceremony was full of symbolism and traditions from both the Christian and Judaic cultures. It was neat to see the harmonious blending of two families coming together, and embracing each other's differences. It's a good idea for the whole world to embrace those ideas, don't you think? Thanks guys!
