Laura’s Bridal Portrait Photography Session ~ The Cotton Room

I am so excited to finally be able to post Laura’s bridal portraits from last month. I can’t say it enough, Laura is absolutely breathtaking! The backdrop for our bridal session was The Cotton Room in Durham where Laura and Pete were just married this past weekend. But that is a post for another day.

It was a beautiful day and the light that was shining thru the windows was perfect. Not to mention so was Laura’s dress! I loved the beaded detail throughout and the tiara accent completed the look.

But there was one accessory that stole the show, Herbie!!! When Laura and her mom approached me about incorporating their dog into the shoot, I was ecstatic! I had heard a lot about Herbie and he lived up to all the hype.

Congratulations Laura, or should I say Mrs. Tringali!

Diana and Adam ~ Rose Hill Plantation Wedding

I was so happy to meet with the bride-to-be Diana just over a year ago. She was engaged to a lovely man who is the brother of a former bride of mine. And I was over the moon when she mentioned she was getting married at Rose Hill Plantation. One of my favorite wedding venues of all time!

As their wedding day approached, the weather forecast was not looking too favorable. But a perfect couple deserves a perfect day and the weather did not disappoint. As the clouds started to make way for the sunshine, the beautiful ceremony began. The bride held back tears as she walked down the aisle with her dear dad. The groom was also choked up at the sight of his gorgeous bride. It could not have been more perfect!

After the ceremony, we captured lovely portraits of the couple as the sun was setting before heading in to kick off a fun-filled night!

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Adam Browning!

Ava Kate ~ Newborn Portrait Photography

I love when former brides of mine contact me to photograph the newest members of their family. Not only is it great to see them again, but I love to watch as their family grows and be a small part of these precious moments.

I would like to introduce the newest member of the Gailey family. Ava Kate arrived, a little ahead of schedule, on August 20, 2015. She weighed 4 lbs 11 ounces measuring 18 3/4 in height. And to say she is a cutie is an understatement. I loved meeting her and can’t wait for our next meeting!

Monica Maternity Portrait Photography ~ Oak View County Park

Please help me congratulate Monica and her family who will be expecting their first son any day now. I met with Monica when she was 36 weeks pregnant and she looked beautiful! I even had a chance to meet their other son, Draco, who was more than happy to pose with mom and dad.

Graduation Day ~ Campbell University

Congratulations to Amanda who celebrated graduation day May 9th with her adorable and quite charming little man! I met Amanda several weeks ago at the Campbell University campus for a few portraits of her in her graduation gown and 2 year old son. He was very happy for mommy but I think he was more excited to play in the water fountain, what an adventure! I would like to wish Amanda all the best for her and her family. Congratulations!
