Concord, NORTH CAROLINA :: Little Red Riding Hood & The Huntsman // Justin & Bridgit // Real Wedding

Both Justin and Bridgit are incredibly creative people, and I knew their wedding was going to be beautiful and unique to their personalities. I love weddings where you can see the love, excitement and effort that the couple have poured into it, and this was the most personalized wedding I’ve ever seen.

They went with a Little Red Riding Hood and the Huntsman theme, and it was beyond anything I could have imagined! The venue was perfect (cozy and in the middle of the woods) and the decorations were out of a fairy tale. This wedding was an accumulation of an absolutely giddy couple who were delighted about their wedding, two incredible families and some seriously amazing bridesmaids and groomsmen who really took the day to the next level.

Everything seemed to cooperate with this wedding, even the weather; the rain held off just long enough for the ceremony and couple shots, and the woods were vibrant green and smelled incredible from the storm the day before. It cooled the temperature down perfectly on what would have otherwise been a typical hot and muggy North Carolina September day. And most importantly, it could not have been more obvious how happy everyone was for Justin and Bridgit. This was one of those weddings that reminds me why I do this, and why this is one of the best jobs in the world.

If you’re thinking this beautiful couple look familiar, you may have spotted their ‘Roadtrip Romance’ engagement shoot on our blog before! Take a peek here.

I’d known Bridgit for a long time, and was absolutely thrilled when she and Justin asked me to do their engagement and wedding photos. They had the fantastic idea of going on a little roadtrip for the shoot! Coffee and a few good playlists later and we wound up at a gorgeous mountain near Badin, where we climbed over many a log and frolicked through many a grassy field. The second stop was my back yard! My parents live in the countryside near some beautiful pine forests, and Bridgit and Justin loved the idea. By this time the sun was setting, and the light coming through the pines was a perfect setting.

It was such a fun day. They both have infectiously happy personalities and were an honor to capture in their joy. I’m unfathomably excited for their upcoming wedding, and the opportunity of documenting it.


Roadtrip. Mountains. Pine Forests.

I love this photo because it is so raw and so real. This couple had gone through quite a bit in their respective lives prior to meeting each other. I asked my client to show me how she loves to show love for her fiancé and she said, ‘Like this, where I’m the most safe and most comfortable.’ We had a quiet moment and I snapped away. The lighting was perfect and I could feel their peace with each other. It was awesome and that’s what makes wedding and engagement photography so amazing – I could be there, front row witnessing and documenting true, raw love. These two are soul mates and I’m so happy to have been able to capture their love for each other.
