Wedding

Meryl + Hugh Wed | London, England

I now know that miracles do happen, because I met you...

 

Every wedding should start with coffee or champagne on a London balcony, and end with a beautiful room full of loved ones giving the most heart-warming speeches I have ever heard. Thank you for inviting me to shoot your wedding day, Meryl and Hugh. You two couldn't be more precious together and your story is so inspiring to me. Your day was magical to capture! Cheers to your beautiful journey of life together!

Josh + Verity Wed | Yorkshire, England

Ever since meeting these two and roaming around Leeds for coffee last summer, I just fell in love with their sweet personalities. They are adorably silly, quirky, joyful and just so full of laughter and love. I'm incredibly grateful I was able to shoot their wedding in Yorkshire, which is one of my favorite areas of the United Kingdom. The day was moody and rainy (which made for excellent outdoor images, there was a stunning vintage red VW beetle, there was a pinata that was demolished to fill the dance floor with confetti before the party commenced, and there was a three-tiered Jello wedding cake. And that was all just icing on the cake (that wasn't there) compared to the love that was shared between Verity and Josh and their family and friends. Also, a huge thanks to Colin Ross, who was a boss at second-shooting this day with me! 

Josh and Verity, Love you both dearly and wish the best for the season of life that lies before you!

All of the Joy | Dallas, TX

Laurena and Peter's romantic wedding was full of so much joy and never ending smiles. Even my cheeks hurt from smiling so much at the end of the day. I wouldn't change a thing about this beautiful couple or their memorable day in their stunning ceremony and reception venues in downtown Dallas, Texas. 

Below are a few of my personal favorite moments from the day. Whether it's the eye contact, the unplanned contagious laughter, or a small precious unseen moment...authentic candids will always be my favorites from a wedding day.

So blessed by you and your precious families, Lauren and Peter. Praying blessings over you and your first year of marriage, plus the many more years you still have to come!

Kenna + Howard | Savannah, Georgia

I am kind of in love with 'getting ready' photos! I mean, I know the ceremony is the most important, but there is so much anticipation, excitement, endless details and all of the emotions before you are officially married. Here are those below, in the beautiful Historic downtownof Savannah, Georgia!

Blessings to you both, Kenna & Howard! 

Anna + Russell | Vinewood Plantation

I thoroughly loved shooting at Vinewood Plantation alongside my talented and sweet friend, Noi Tran. Anna and Russell were the kindest and one of the most loving couples I have ever had the pleasure to photograph on a wedding day. The weather entailed a light mist throughout the entire day. It was endlessly stunning and incredibly serene. I couldn't think of a better way to describe this day than a dream.

Blessings to Anna and Russell on your beautiful future together. Sincerely, Melody

Paige + Brett | A Beautiful Mountainside Wedding

If anyone knows me well, they know I am always up for an adventure! This couple couldn't have made my 4th of July or their wedding any more adventurous! Paige & Brett are from a stunning mountainous area in North Carolina and wanted to have their wedding on the top of a mountain, where Brett had proposed to Paige exactly one year ago before. They ended up having their ceremony & reception inside a quaint lodge, and then after their exit we went on a "super fun-bumpy-holding on to my camera for dear life-limbs hitting us in the face" kind of ride up to the very top of this mountain. I wouldn't change that experience for anything because It really showed what the day was all about. Life is a journey, not a destination. Their wedding didn't end with glitz and glam, it started with their first adventure that we were able to capture. Paige was able to kick off her shoes, sit on dirty boulders, climb rocks to get to their favorite spots and hang off of cliffs...all while in her wedding dress. I don't know many brides that would do that. Paige is definitely someone that I admire! 

Brett & Paige, it was an honor to shoot your lovely wedding day and I am incredibly grateful that my 4th of July weekend and birthday was spent with you all and your sweet family in the foothills of North Carolina!
