Jen & Chris

Spring skies, fresh strawberry and sweet potato plated salads, and laughter complimented Jennifer and Christopher Higgins as they said I do before a back drop of freshly leafed foliage in the ceremonial garden of Concord, North Carolina's historic Ritchie Hill. This early 1900's Southern Victorian's light and airy rooms were a stunning backdrop while Jennifer prepared to walk the down the aisle, and the grand Southern front porch, made every guest feel at home during their reception.

Floral Inspired

For this amazing Ritchie Hill styled shoot in Concord, North Carolina, MILK + HONEY inspired by a fresh design that would speak to brides in any region. We wanted to create a clean floral design that would not distract any wedding dinner conversation, so we decided to take it off of the table all together and hang it from the ceiling. We wanted to mix traditional with exceptional, so we mixed in a succulent theme with a sprig of bright hanging flowers, and shot our beautiful table set up on a pure white 1,600 square foot vintage front porch.

Jen & Chris

Libby of Details Wedding Planning introduced MILK + HONEY to Jen and Chris, and we had such a great time photographing Jen and Chris's engagement session on Lake Wylie just outside of Belmont, North Carolina. We had been holding out for a sunshiny day, and when we were finally graced with it, we got the cold too. Put it this way, I looked at the river in front of my home as I was driving to meet up with them, and it was frozen (burrr)! Even though it was cold, their love warmed up my camera, and it radiated through all of these beautiful images. I loved getting to hear about how these two met, their first date, wedding plans, and all of their cute furry friends!

Laura Jo & James

We absolutely loved getting to photograph Laura Jo and James engagement! We captured their session throughout NoDa, and ended on a high note amidst the skyline of Charlotte, North Carolina. They met at The Blind Pig, and couldn't help but include it in their session, as well as their cute pups, and even Laura Jo's Mom in one photograph; as she was helping us out with their furry children for the morning. I am so excited for their Cinco de Mayo 2018 Wedding, and can only imagine what an amazing day and night it will be with these two saying "I Do!"

Mr. & Mrs. Ramos

You know what is crazy?! Photographing one of your best friends 10 year marriage anniversary in San Diego, California at the Mission San Diego de Alcala! Are we even old enough to have any of our friends married for ten whole years?! Well, these two did get married in their early twenties, and even then they had been loving one another for over half a decade.

Mr. & Mrs. Ellison

After an eventful engagement session in the Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of Asheville, North Carolina, Meleah and Corey knew MILK + HONEY was up for anything! When a rainy wedding day started, we knew it was just part of the adventure. I was so honored to be the one to capture their beautiful story. On October 13th, 2017, Meleah and Corey's family and friends all gathered with them up at the Roller Mill in Winston-Salem. The old flower mill was filled with love, laughter, and a few tears as we all witnessed these two vow to share the rest of their days together.

Mr. & Mrs. Reeves

Cody and Caitlyn said yes to forever with each other on March 11th, 2017 in small town Mt. Holly, North Carolina at the Grand Hall. When I first met Caitlyn, it was easy to see how excited she was to be marrying the love of her life! In a cozy little coffee shop in Mt. Holly alongside one of her sisters and her niece, she just beamed as she told me about Cody and their relationship. Cody had not only become a part of her family since they had been together, but also a strong part of their church, and I could tell even before I met him for myself that he was such a good man with a huge heart.

Meleah & Corey

Meleah and Corey jumped at the chance to be photographed at the top of Craggy Gardens for their engagement session, but North Carolina weather had a different idea for the day. We all packed up in the wee hours of the morning and headed up to the Asheville Blue Ridge Mountains. To our surprise once we got there, the road up the Blue Ridge trail was closed down due to ice and snow. Did I mention, that the weather gave us no indicator of this?! We decided to not give up, and went on an excursion through small towns and country roads trying to find another route to our destination.

Caitlyn's Bridal

MILK + HONEY headed back to the same little farm nestled just outside of Mt. Holly, North Carolina for Caitlyn's Bridal session. Did I mention, I love Bridal Sessions?!?! Bridal Session's are a whole new phenomenon for me since I moved here from San Diego, and they are definitely a Southern tradition that I love! We had such a wonderful time capturing Caitlyn, and a preview of what was to come on her special day that was around the corner.
