Nikki and Graylan were married a few years ago at Autumn Creek Vineyards. I was there to capture their wedding day. When Nikki contacted me and said how awesome she thought it would be for me to continue to photograph their growing family, I was thrilled! We set up a bump session at Pilot Mountain, with no idea that it would be a warm January day. So warm in fact, that it seemed everyone in NC decided to head there. A wait to get into the park was totally worth the images we were able to capture. There was the most beautiful sunset painted across thy sky that made for a beautiful backdrop for Nikki and her 30 week bump. Congratulations you 2 on your new addition. I can’t wait to meet him!
I have known Michael since our high school days at Northwest Guilford. College went by and a few years later we ran into each other at a crossfit class at College Hill. I remember seeing him walk in and immediately recognized him. We have been crossfitting together for a little over 4 years now, just about every day at noon. I met Allison and knew immediately she was a perfect fit for him. She’s caring, witty, and hilarious. Allison planned the wedding over the last several months all while Michael was campaigning for a NC senate seat. She did an amazing job. The wedding took place at the historic Julian Price House in Fisher Park, Greensboro. This was the first wedding the house has hosted. Michael and Allison chose a 5:00 ceremony, so we did a first look and took care of all their portraits pre-ceremony in order to have daylight images. These 2 were so natural in front of the camera. They couldn’t keep from smiling at each other. Their laughter and love contagious. The ceremony took place outside under a white tent where Michael and Allison were surrounded by their closest friends and family. Vintage love seats and chairs from The Prettiest Pieces were a nice touch for the guests to sit comfortably during the ceremony while they sipped champagne. Maria’s served a fabulous dinner inside the house. Heartfelt toasts were given and first dances shared. The party went well into the night back under the tent. I have had a friend in Michael for many years, and I am so happy that he has brought Allison into my life. I can’t wait to see what life has in store for these 2, their son Jack, and watch all the good Michael does for our state. Congratulations to both of you and a lifetime of laughs and happiness! Cheers!
We have had a very busy fall portrait season! Thank you to all the families! We have hundreds and hundreds of images but here’s just a peek at a few!
