My favorite part of being a wedding photographer full time is that I never do the same thing twice. Sure, I take ring photos at every wedding, I do couples portraits at every wedding, but no two weddings are the same. No two couples are the same. Everyone’s relationship is different and everyone’s wedding plans are completely unique to them. Megan and Kevin’s wedding day was exactly this – it was THEM! Small, intimate, and only their closest people were there with them as they said “I do.” I love small weddings like this one, it gives you the entire day to spend with the people you love the most, instead of being swarmed by 250 people trying to say hello to all of them before the day is done. Megan and Kevin and I were able to sneak away at sunset and recite their vows in private, and I think there’s nothing more romantic or more personal than that. Grateful to couples like this one for trusting me with their big day, for being so much fun and so easy to work with, and for being SO ADORABLY IN LOVE. I had the absolute best time. Now look at some highlights from their backyard wedding (that term means something different when this is what your backyard looks like) in Shallotte, NC.
