Allison + Zachary | Atlantic Beach Engagement Photos | Atlantic Beach Wedding Photographer

It’s no secret I’ve fallen in love with North Carolina since we moved here almost 5 years ago. The beauty of this state never ceases to amaze and inspire me. Sadly, Hurricane Florence has caused immense destruction across eastern North Carolina, leaving the landscape bruised and battered. Even worse off than the land are the Carolinians who lost their homes and worldly possessions. It is truly heartbreaking and every day since Florence made landfall I’ve prayed for those suffering and the ones who lost their lives. We will never forget what this hurricane has done but I am so proud of how the communities impacted have rallied and supported each other. #CarolinaStrong is more than a hashtag— it’s become a battle cry backed up by action and compassion.

I wanted to share this beach engagement session from earlier this year because a) it’s gorgeous, b) Alli and Zack got married last weekend, and c) I wanted to pay tribute to this Carolina coast I have grown to love so much. I guess you can consider this blog post a love letter written with images…

Courtney + Aaron | Steele Canyon Country Club Wedding | Jacksonville NC Wedding Photographer

If you've been to my website before, or "liked" my Facebook page, you're probably very familiar with some of these images, as they definitely rank high on my list of favorites. I am so happy to finally blog them.

Courtney and Aaron's wedding is what I like to call "rustic done right". In the Pinterest world we live in, it's easy to follow trends and inject popular aesthetics into your wedding day. It can also be overwhelming. I mean, there are SO many ideas on the Internet. A bride can get lost and consumed with choices when planning her big day. I think Courtney did an amazing job pinpointing her style and combining just the right amount of rustic charm and garden chic. The color palette was perfect and the details fit together like puzzle pieces.

Aside from its gorgeous styling, this wedding was full of love and joy and I remember smiling the entire day. I have a lot of fun photographing pretty details but it's the people and the emotional journey of a wedding day that get me excited. My favorite part of being a Jacksonville NC Wedding Photographer is telling a story, and I can't do that without capturing the smiles, the laughter, the tears and the connections shared by the people in front of my camera.

Without further ado, here's a glimpse into Courtney and Aaron's lovely wedding day in eastern San Diego County.
