2020 brought a lot of emotions but one of the best surprises were intimate weddings. My 2020 season was full of sweet, private ceremonies of just the important people and none of the fluff. Seth and Stephanie were married in a wooded ceremony behind one of their favorite restaurants, The Artisanal in Banner Elk, NC, surrounded by their parents, siblings and best friends.

Hayden: “So much to say about Sarah. It’s impossible to say that there is just one thing I love about this girl. She is motivated, driven in her passions, loving and kind. But one of the things that I can say I love the most about my girl is her heart. Sarah has taught me how to love those who don’t deserve to be loved, how to care for those you may not care for and to show kindness to all strangers. She has helped me strive to be someone who I picture to be the perfect dad or the perfect role model amongst friends and peers. She’s been able to do that because she is that, the exact counterpart to where/who I want to be. So my favorite thing about Sarah is how she loves.”


Back in April, Lauren drove up from Wilkesboro, NC to meet me in an empty parking lot in Blowing Rock, NC at 5:30 in the morning. Sounds like the start to scary movie but it’s not! We hiked up the side of Beacon Heights together in the pitch black to open up to this wondrous view that I have loved to share with so many of my clients. It’s so fascinating to watch how these images change from a soft blue to a dramatic, bright gold as the sun rose. I always tell my clients that when I love a shot, they’re going to hear me start making noises and squealing. I was squealing non-stop for this session. I told Lauren she was the epitome of a redheaded beauty and I still stand by that. Take a look for yourself.
