I’m still in awe of Taren’s regal wedding look. Her perfect red lip, soft and dewy glam, dress details and the Barclay Villa location exuded every bit of grace and royalty on her magical day. Please do yourselves a favor and SWIPE to see her dress. #ContourKissed 💋
Molly is one of my best friends. She will literally call me sometimes just to tell me how much she appreciates me, like whhaaaattt!? how do I even deserve to be friends with her. She has been there for me over the past few years since Zack has been gone and I couldn’t be more thankful to have met such a beautiful, caring person who spreads love and happiness no matter where she goes. I love you Molly!

Maddison and Blake had the sweetest first look before their wedding at @mcguires_millrace_farm We love that first looks give the bride and groom a moment alone before the craziness of the day gets started. It helps ease the nerves, and this is often the only moment alone they get all day!!
Anyone else have a CRAZY weekend of weddings ahead?! We've been going nonstop getting ready for these upcoming events and we decided to take a little donut break to help us get through. Not kidding. Eat donuts, it helps. •

Whitney + Joe were such a joy to work with! They have been dating since high school (10 years) and their love for one another is so sweet and contagious. Can’t wait to photograph their wedding next spring! #corphotography#corphotographycouple
Today my mom and sister are coming into town and I'm beyond excited! Both haven't seen Easton in a little while so we need go have a girls long weekend, just the 4 of us! (Sorry dustin!) We have shopping to do, we are going to see A Star is Born and eat dinner at the Angus Barn in Raleigh. So many things to do in 4 days!!
This morning, while waiting for them, I decided to go back and blog about this amazing wedding. My first wedding! Who wouldn't blog about that?? Read more on the link in my bio 😊
Good morning sunshines, it’s #WeddingTipWednesday ☺️💛
So it’s your wedding day, and you made it through the ceremony! (Congratulations!! 🍾) you want to spend time with your new lifelong partner in crime, and/or take a second to talk to your parents, but it just seems like there isn’t enough time in the day.
A great way to make time to spend with your closest loved ones and your sweetheart, is to make the most of the downtime— especially if you’re having a cocktail hour/having photos taken between your ceremony and reception! 🥂 (🔑 tip: If you’re going to do this while pictures are being done, try to do so when your photographer doesn’t necessarily need to photograph you! Remember to communicate and make sure things are done before sneaking off for a second!)
Your cocktail hour is the PERFECT time to take even a couple minutes to be present with those you may not get much of a chance to be with that day. Your guests will still be enjoying themselves, allowing you to not only recharge and enjoy the day, but to also thank those special people for being such an integral part of your wedding day! Even if you’re not having a cocktail hour, try to find a few minutes within your schedule to enjoy the now, and truly soak in the fact that everything has come together. After all, with all of that planning you deserve to enjoy yourselves too!!✨ #bepresent#bepresentinthemoment#enjoylifenow#qualitytime#justmarried#weddingday#weddingdayready#partnersincrime#bridaltips#groomsmen#groom#happywednesday#happyplanner#wednesdaywisdom#cocktailhour#bridetobe2018#bridetobe2019#ncbride#scbride#georgiabride

On your wedding day, surround yourself with people that are good for your soul. Those who cheer you on, who got your back, who laugh with you on good days and bring you food on the bad ones. The ones that challenge you to be your best, yet never make you feel like you are not enough. Who adore you for you - with all your perks and quirks.
This darling of a bride had Hurricane Florence roll through on her wedding day. But, she made the most of a still incredible day. I'm so happy to be sharing her bridals with you on the blog tonight! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Krista is truly a Disney Princess in her grandmother's heirloom wedding gown. You absolutely need to click on the link in my profile to see more.
Posting this beautiful face is so bittersweet for me. I can’t begin to tell you guys how amazing Jymmi is and how much fun I’ve had getting to know her throughout her entire wedding planning process. On 3 different occasions she sat in my chair and we had an absolute blast getting to know each other during each session. It was truly an honor to paint this glamorous look for her on her wedding day. Although my wedding MUA duties have been fulfilled, we are already planning the family shoots 💕Oh and did I mention we now share the same last name?!?! Guys, meet the gorgeous Mrs Williams #ContourKissed 💋
@ajcrimson dual akin foundation has Jymmi’s skin looking like perfection. I mixed @danessa_myricks Radiance illuminating veil with the foundation for extra glow. • @stilacosmetics liquid lipstick in Patina shimmer and Rose Gold liquid shimmer eyeshadow • The highlight that’s blinding you is by @makeupshayla x @colourpopcosmetics collab in BOOMIN
Behind the scenes of todays styled shoot! Cannot wait to see the professional images from @movingmountains_studios @champagne_manor @meganoliverimua @paigeandelliott @carolinabells @cookerentalslkn @candace.erinpadgettevents
In Texas for the week soaking in all the knowledge i can from some inspiring + creative women! I am taking a little break from emails and inquiries until Friday to be fully emerged into this workshop. Can’t wait to come back to VA with new floral-wizard skillz 🙌🏻

Preparing for Arianne +Derek’s wedding this weekend and 3 photoshoots this week. October, you will forever be known as my “crazy month” as long as I’m a wedding photographer! But I wouldn’t trade a single minute of it. Every photoshoot, every wedding, I am constantly reminded that my job is the freaking BOMB! #corphotography#corphotographycouple#weddingphotography
