Back in August, we were honored to capture the moments, details and memories as Kayla and Jonas began their life together as Mr. & Mrs. Jonas Bailey. It was a beautiful August day, mild for a Raleigh summer, and the sun was shining as these two became husband and wife.

We started the day at the Salon with Kayla and her girls as they were getting their hair and makeup done. There was no shortage of laughter and smiles as old friends reminisced and new friends and family awaited the day ahead.

We then met Jonas and his guys at the church and got to spend some time with them as Jonas anxiously awaited the moment he would see his bride. Of course, his groomsmen were happy to fill his short wait with jokes and laughter.

It was a beautiful ceremony and you could see and feel the love Kayla and Jonas have for each other and for the Lord.

The reception was hosted at The Sutherland in Wake Forest. A staple in the Raleigh wedding community, The Sutherland did not disappoint. Not only are the grounds beautiful, but the house, pavilion and staff are amazing. Kayla and Jonas welcomed their friends and family to a true southern meal complete with Cheerwine and a night of celebration and dancing!

Thank you Kayla and Jonas for allowing us to be a part of your beautiful day. We wish you both all the best in your life ahead – together!

Quin is entering his senior year at Woodgrove High School here in North Virginia. Like most of our senior guys, Quin was a good sport to tag along with me around Daufauski Island while we took his senior photos. I might even make a stretch and say he enjoyed it! Good luck in your senior year Quin, can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!

Katelyn and Hank’s wedding was one where you leave knowing that everyone truly enjoyed themselves and are going to remember it for awhile.

We met Katelyn and her girls at her sister’s house in Hobgood, NC. I must be honest, I had never heard of Hobgood before booking this wedding and as we were driving out there I could see why, but as we got farther and farther off the main road it was like we were driving into a country song. Her sister’s house and farm were beautiful and as we watched the storms in the distance as they finished getting ready it was truly beautiful.

The wedding took place at The First Baptist Church in Scotland Neck, NC. Hank and his guys were a lot of fun to be around and you could feel the excitement in the air for what was to come. The church was packed full as Katelyn walked down the aisle in her beautiful dress.

The southern charm in this wedding could be seen throughout, from the magnolia leaves that were everywhere to the Embers playing at the reception. At the reception, the dance floor was never empty.

Paige and I had a great time! You can never go wrong as a videographer when you have an amazing bride and groom to capture and also a fantastic photographer to work with…thank you Kelly Parnell!

Thank you Hank and Katelyn for allowing us to be a part of your wonderful day.

In the age of pinterest it’s hard to do anything truly unique anymore, but some how Erin and Bryan pulled it off! From the waterfront venue (which was also a HUGE boathouse) to their dog walking down the aisle, to the drone coverage and the acrobatic entrance and entertainment during the cocktail hour there was always something to keep the guests wondering what’s next?!

We had the honor of being a part of their memorable wedding this past April in Beaufort, NC. The day started in beautiful Morehead City, NC where the bridal party was getting ready and then took a trolley to The Boathouse in Beaufort, NC. On the drive over there was rain, but thankfully it all quickly cleared and allowed for a beautiful outdoor ceremony and great open-air reception!

One of the cool things with this video is the drone footage we got to incorporate thanks to Skyward Imaging. These guys were amazing and captured some of the surrounding area and ceremony like no other.

The Boathouse at Front Street Village is a functioning boathouse so as we were taking pictures before and after the ceremony the crew was literally picking boats up out of the water and putting them on shelves for storage. I’ve never seen anything like it and it made for an incredible backdrop!

Thank you Erin and Bryan for allowing us to be a part of your day!
