Molly & Russell - The Diamond Room

On Saturday we had the pleasure of hanging out with Molly and Russell for their wedding. They are so adorable, we can't stand it. Here are some of the highlights - if this is any indication of what is in store for us, 2009 is going to be a LOT of fun!

Carolyn's Bridal Portrait - Belmont Estate

Here are some of our favorites from Carolyn's bridal session at Belmont Estate in Reidsville. She was very brave to tough out some photos outside in 25-degree weather, but we soon packed it in for some lovely shots inside the mansion. Carolyn makes a beautiful bride and even shows off her custom Nike tennis shoes that she had made in honor of the big day. Isn't she adorable?

Carly's bridal session

On Saturday, we photographed the lovely Carly for her bridal session. As you can see, she is very photogenic and was totally relaxed even though it was cold. She was a trooper in the 40 degree weather and was up for just about anything. Here are some of our favorites. Stay tuned for the wedding in May. Lake Lure, here we come!





Jonathan and Renee - the vacation

So after 45 weddings, can you blame us for wanting a little R&R? We spent a few glorious weeks in south Florida, staying with Jonathan's parents and traveling around a bit. Take a look at a bit of what we saw...

Jonathan's mom is a Christmas elf...


Eddie and Penny Belle got in on the gifts as well, of course...


South Florida is known for its plethora of fauna... but the Key deer is extra special - they con only be found in the Florida Keys, and are so tame! They come right up to you as if to be petted! They are really tiny as well - this little guy probably only weighed about 35 pounds.


classic south Florida...






in Key West, roosters roam free...


and everyone applauds the sun at the southernmost point...


On our way back up to NC, we took a side trip to Amelia Island - the dogs loved the beach!




shake it out, Eddie!






So sad to see it end!

Susie and Jay, the wedding

In late December, we traveled to Boston to capture Susie and Jay's big day. It was cold, but we didn't let a little thing like a blizzard stop us! We got more than 10 inches in three days, but the couple consoled themselves with a honeymoon in Hawaii. From Christmas trees to palm trees - you can't beat that for the holidays! Congrats Susie and Jay! We had a great time :)


It started out as a very gray day on the Boston common...

but things brightened up in a hurry...

the dress was from Priscillas of Boston...

and it fit her perfectly...

Jay was stylin' too...

the street scene was lovely...

and no one was happier than these two...

done deal!

big hug...

a moment alone...

some fancy footwork...

delectable cupcakes...

sweet wedded bliss...

and sparklers to cap off the night!
