about me...kind of | Fayetteville Wedding Photographer

She was such a bad ass

She was such a bad ass

Not gonna lie, this blog post started as an “about me” blog post. Intention was to allow people to get to know me a bit better. 

So I was digging through old photos trying to find something I could use to help tell the story. 

Then I came across a couple photos of my grandmother. May she Rest In Peace. 

My grandmother was a force to be reckoned with, to put it lightly. She was the most bull headed and loving person I have ever known. 

My grandmother raised me for about 95% of my upbringing and she has probably had the largest influence on making me the person I am today. For better or for worse.

Not sure what happened, but I was a cute kid..

Not sure what happened, but I was a cute kid..

She was a hard worker her whole life, that could seemingly do anything. From small engine repair to minor construction. She would also play catch well in her late 50s with her spirited grandson. This woman could do it all!

She never missed a little league baseball game (unless she was working).  She gave me unwavering support throughout my life.  For that, I am eternally grateful. 

As I get this Wedding Photography business off the ground and I run into snags and resistance, I think to my self…what would Granny do?  

She had that never give up attitude that was infectious.  I never met a person that didn’t just love my grandmother….or her Sunday dinners! 

Maybe one day I’ll get back to writing the “about me”  post, but for now.  This is a very small thing to express what she meant to me and the impact she had on everyone around her. She left us to early and I’m so sorry I wasn’t able to be there in the end.  

When she died in 2003, I was in Kuwait getting ready to take a long drive to Baghdad, but more on that in a future post.

Oh and while I’m here, take photographs of your loved ones and PRINT THEM!! We didn’t take photographs often growing up that I remember and now I wish we did.  So many things are lost and photographs I know would snap me right back to where I was whenever the photograph was taken…

Please don’t let photos of your loved ones die on a smart phone. 

If you made it this far into the post…Who shaped or molded you into the person that you are today?  I would love to know.  Comment or send me an email or DM… 

Thanks for stopping by.

Fayetteville Wedding Photographer | Favorite wedding photographs of August 2018

Being a Fayetteville Wedding Photographer has allowed me to travel quite a bit in August.  I started in the Outer Banks of North Carolina at Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head. Which was awesome, since it was my first beach wedding and the couple was Awesome!

Fortunately I got to stay here in Fayetteville for the next wedding which was held at the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens and once I wrapped there, I got to visit the campus of University of Chapel Hill to wrap up that weekend of weddings.  

Last wedding of August was quite a doozy (travel wise). I made the trek up to Northern Virginia to the Morais Vineyards near Fredericksburg. 

It's really awesome that I get to take part in documenting couples special days.  As many weddings as I have photographed this year, no two weddings have been similar in the slightest.  This keeps things very interesting for sure, and this is what keeps me inspired to photograph weddings.
