Love Notes | Allison + Charlie

I can’t speak highly enough of Ariana! First and foremost, my husband and I valued having a good relationship with our vendors since wedding planning is a long, stressful process. Ariana could not have done a better job of being easy and fun to work with! She’s professional yet a gigantic ball of fun all in one!

I for one hate being photographed—I feel uncomfortable and awkward, but Ariana changed that for me! She makes you feel totally comfortable and makes the process so much fun! Moreover, her images are absolutely stunning and she captures you exactly as you are. I’ve never had photos of my husband and I that portray our personalities so perfectly and beautifully!

Your wedding day is truly a blur, and Ariana captured every possible aspect of our day that there was to capture. Photography was very important to my husband and I because it’s what turned that blur into a real memory, and Ariana has made our day come to life over and over again in the most beautiful way possible.

We couldn’t have placed our trust in anyone else for that! Thank you Ariana! We love you!

Penny Bend Nature Reserve Engagement | Jessica & Corey

I love when my clients pick their locations because it guarantees a personal meaning AND a new challenge for me. But Jessica & Corey really surprised me with this location. I would have never expected to find what turned out to be BASICALLY AN ENCHANTED FOREST in the middle of Durham!! We spent a couple hours in the setting sun with their sweet dog babies and laughing over how it was the most ridiculously HOT DAY in October. With an abandoned metal building and pathways galore, it was perfection. I can't wait to see these guys get married next October!

Cotton Room Wedding Photography | Lauren & Sam

Welcome back to the blog people! Have I got a STUNNER for you today!

October was a month of pumpkin spiced everything, the tentative wearing of tights and boots on days that were too hot, and of course.... the wedding of Lauren & Sam. Lauren, a natural planner and A-type organizer, was all smiles as everything fell into place. Sam, on the other hand, was a ball of excited nerves and tears. But cue the first look... and everyone could see why these two were marrying each other. A surprise guest arrived to complete the family - their sweet dog, Wallie! With the whole family together and happy, we whisked off to celebrate their love.
