Bakery 105 in Downtown Wilmington, North Carolina is easily one of my favorite venues in town to photograph in. Brick walls, open floorpan, great in-house catering, prime location to walk around within a 1 block radius for a ton of my favorite photo locations downtown, and of course my favorite part – the huge outdoor patio covered in ivy climbing up the walls. I’ve got a bunch more Bakery 105 weddings coming up this year and I’m so excited!

Kegan and Ryan are two very special clients – I almost always have a very very very positive time at weddings, because I really do work with awesome people. But Kegan and Ryan basically adopted me for the day and welcomed me into their family with open arms. I think it helps that Kegan and I both have the same weird sense of humor and affection for very cute dogs (okay, all dogs). If you want to know the secret to getting excellent photos on your wedding day – it’s exactly that. Be yourselves and let me just do my thing and I will capture the day as it happens. If you can let loose and just forget I’m there and totally be yourselves (or don’t forget I’m there and just be yourselves anyway), the memories I catch on camera are absolutely unbeatable.

They had SUCH a gorgeous wedding – and their group of friends and family that were there with them, really brought the party. They were on the dance floor ALL NIGHT and I was having so much fun I literally couldn’t leave the dance floor either. If I could sum up their wedding in one word it would probably be ENERGY. There was so much energy and good vibes floating around that place it was impossible to not have a great time. And of course, we had to get some photos with the cutest flower girl of all time, their sweet pup, Mauve!!!
