I C E L A N D with the Olsens

I get to work with the greatest couples on the regular. It's my job. <-- That sentence NEVER gets old.

This is an opportunity I'm still in disbelief over.  Amanda & Ben, thank you for trusting in me. Thank you for flying me out there to spend time getting to know you both. The love you both have for the other is incredible and gave me secondhand butterflies. If that's a thing? I can't wait to see what's next for you both! 

 

Chelsea & Ben are having a BABY || Greenville, SC

Chelsea, is my spirit animal.  End post here. 

I met Chelsea & Ben last November (2016) while shooting their engagement session in Asheville. Pretty sure I actually blogged that session! Anyways, married in March, expecting in January. They wasted no time. ;) This is my third time getting to hang with her & Ben. I truly feel like they showcase my work and some of the things I love documenting most. If I'm considered "moody" because it isn't all smiles and blown out backgrounds during my sessions, then I love being moody. The other day she posted this on facebook and it made me laugh, "One day, one of our misadventures with Kayla is going to bring us pictures with sunlight. Until that day, let’s all marvel at her genius of turning two snow-soaked freezing people into winter wonderland models."

Chelsea, I hope that I did not fail you in your hopes to look like "Snow White, who was awoken early & knocked up."

Haven + Riddim || Asheville, NC

I'll try & keep these sappy words short, but it's times like these that I'm so humbled with the opportunity I have to create art & have fun with couples who are very much in love. There are so many incredible photographers in my area. I'm so happy that people choose to share their love through my lens.

I met Riddim in the Summer of 2016. He was bartending at a wedding I was photographing. He asked for a business card & told me he had plans to propose to his beautiful girlfriend in the upcoming months. I was so excited when he contacted me months later. Guess who was there to document that ;) And a few months after that these two love bugs volunteered to play in the snow with me one January night ( I'm still obsessed with those photos). 

So with that, all I will say is be kind to every single person you meet, because you never know where that relationship may lead. Fortunately, this one led me barefoot in Asheville with these two incredibly genuine, beautiful people. Oh and guess who also gets to document their wedding next June. ;)
