You have probably seen a lot of different New Year's resolution posts and might even be tired of them at this point, but I promise this will be different than other that you have seen because I am going to show you a year in review of 2019 and move into some things I am wanting to happen in 2020! So welcome and I hope that you get as excited about these things as I have!
I might be a little biased, but the Mercaldo family sure is one awesome group of people! I guess I can say that because they are my own flesh and blood! My family hasn't had family pictures taken since 2007 (yes you read that right!), so it was about time that we got some new ones taken since we have added a few new members of the family!
Sarah and Pete were literally one of the sweetest couples that I have had the pleasure of working with! They have so much love for each other and they had such a fun time during their session! Sarah told me that her and Pete barely have any pictures together because they spend so much time being amazing parents to their little boy, so I wanted to make sure that they had amazing pictures to showcase their love and commitment to each other!
Amelia and Chris are such a sweet couple, and they were one of the winners of my session giveaway! We decided to hold their session with their pups at the gorgeous Stone Church Farm venue in Hillsborough, North Carolina. They, along with their three adorable pups, totally rocked their session, and just look how much they have for each other!
This styled bridal session was held at the gorgeous White House on Washington Event Venue in Mebane, North Carolina, and was put together with the help of some amazing vendors! I wanted this shoot to be bright and fun, but really focus on the timelessness and simplicity that bridal sessions should show. I also wanted the shoot to showcase all of the gorgeous spaces around the venue that can be used for pictures!
Madison and Tyson were another one of my winners from my couple's session giveaway back in the fall! They love hanging out in Saxapahaw, which if you have never explored you totally should, so it was only fitting that we held their session around town! We had so much fun exploring the town and finding amazing spots to get pictures at!
Gracie and Preston were married on October 27, 2019, at Starlight Meadow in Burlington NC. Their vision for their wedding was to incorporate a country chic style with bright, vibrant fall colors. They wanted their overall wedding style to fit with the venue they had chosen but still make their guests feel like they were at a high-class wedding.
Baylee and Kincaid were one of the couples that won a free couple's session with me, and we scheduled their session to be held at Ayr Mount in Hillsborough because they loved the historic and romantic feel of the venue! We spent their entire session laughing and giggling because they were just the cutest couple! Their love really shines through all of their images, and it was such a delight to get to know them! Keep reading to see some of my favorite images from their session!
Carlyn and JT are the literal sweetest couple and I can not wait to get to photograph their wedding in March of 2020! They contacted me about being their photographer and I knew instantly when we met up for coffee that we were going to have so much fun at their engagement session and their wedding because we clicked instantly! Keep reading below to see some of their engagement pictures!
Julie and Josh got in contact with me about photographing their wedding in March of 2020, and I couldn't be happier that they chose me to capture their day! Josh is in the Navy, so currently he is stationed in Virginia, but their wedding will be held in Havelock North Carolina at Millers Landing.
