On June 18th I headed up to North Carolina to photograph Lori & Josh’s wedding day at Timberlake Earth Sanctuary. Y’all… it was a BEAUTIFUL day!! The weather was near perfect & this was such a beautiful location… it was all soo soo beautiful and it was such an honor to photograph this wedding. You may recognize Lori from her bridals but earlier this year I took their engagement photos on a FREEZING evening!! I have had so much fun getting to know the two of them since January!! If you ever get a chance to visit Timberlake Earth Sanctuary you should. It’s a few miles south of 85 and it’s soo incredibly peaceful! I’m looking forward to getting up there again!!
When I arrived to the venue I found Josh & his groomsmen out in the orchard working!! 🙂 They were getting everything set up for the ceremony!! I knew they were doing the setting up I was still just surprised to see them so hard at work on his wedding day!! Lori you have yourself a good man (but I think you already know that)!! After saying hello to the guys I headed to the Tree House to get started!! I loved getting to document this beautiful day!! From the details, to Lori getting into her beautiful dress, to her pulling up in a beautiful vintage red car to the ceremony, to the ceremony, my time with Lori & Josh after the ceremony, to the celebrating that took place at the reception… it was all so much fun and such a joy to document!! I think my favorite thing about the day though was photographing how much Lori & Josh love one another!! I love the way they are with each other!! Two of the sweetest people you will ever meet & I can’t thank them enough for wanting me to spend the day with them and document their love Here are just a few of my favorite images from their day!!
Even though I had taken bridals of Lori back in May I ALWAYS make it a point to get a few bridals of a bride on her wedding day!Loved her flowers sooo much!!Love that Lori raised her flowers once they were announced husband & wife!!!Even the bridesmaids flowers were incredible!!
Y’all!!! These two gave me a HUGE chunk of time for photos of just the two of them!! I had so much fun documenting them as husband and wife… and I’m pretty sure they enjoyed getting to spend time just the two of them before they went to the reception to celebrate!!!
Loved all the little details from the ceremony & reception!!I became a HUGE fan of outdoor daytime receptions!! This was later in the evening but there was still so much light out and I LOVED it!!
Lori & Josh, thank y’all so much for wanting me to photograph your love story!!!
