Love is a Journey | North Carolina Anniversary Event Photographer - Holly Springs, North Carolina

This July, I was given the honor to photograph Sora+Zach's One Year Anniversary Party in the lovely Holly Springs, North Carolina. They had tied the knot abroad in June of 2015, but wanted to have a get together with their friends and family in order to celebrate the Mr. & Mrs.

Let me just start off by saying...

There is SO MUCH LOVE in this family

From the different cakes homemade from several family members, all the way to the trinkets that reminded Sora of home, the only word I can use to describe this party is Love.

After the party, the McKay's used the RARE opportunity that everyone was together to host a family photo session.

Below are my favorites from the day!

Venue : Sunset Lake Lodge

Catering : BO's Kitchen, & Mrs. McKay

Kimberly+Billy | Whirlwind Shaw AFB Wedding

I was fortunate enough to meet this lovely couple through a mutual friend who was Planning and Coordinating their wedding. They will always have a special place in my heart as the first couple to book me when I moved to Sumter this summer.

Kim & Billy had a lot of obsticles to overcoming before walking down the aisle, including the massive 1000 Year Flood that overtook Sumter/Columbia just days before their wedding! After having to change venues, almost not being able to pick up her dress, and worst of all, ALMOST having to push back their wedding date - they finally tied the knot on a beautiful October day!

Thank you so much Kim & Billy for allowing me to be a part of your special day!

And shout out to their amazing vendors (see bottom of post)
