get ready, friends, for a breathtaking destination beach wedding! (did you, um, see the sneak peek? we couldn’t resist!) Karley and Taylor tied the knot recently in SC and, we must say, all parties involved did an incredible job of planning a wedding all the way from Texas! it was a morning wedding with yummy brunch that relaxed into an afternoon on the beach playing in the water and on the volleball court! the colors were perfect for a summer wedding – even the guests matched! :) karley’s artistic talents were sprinkled throughout (look for the guest “check-in” map – it’s so cute!), making it a real reflection of their personalities.  it was truly wonderful to be a part of such a love-filled day; there was a warmth and joy that just could not be denied!! thank you for letting us be a part!  we hope you’re having a beautiful time in playa del carmen! we wish you many, many years of happiness and hope to see you next time you’re visiting in NC!

xo, m&g

p.s. we wanted to mention karley’s contribution to Dallas’ Ultimate Wedding Guide – hitched in a hurry….super fun blog all about she and Taylor’s engagement!

We had to share these…

So here a few more shots from Denise and David’s sweet wedding in Durham, NC. Denise has a love for B&W film (see Henri Cartier-Bresson) and asked us to shoot B&W film of their wedding, what an honor! Graham brought the medium format and some ILFORD 120 HP5+ ( for all you photo nerds:)) and went to town!

Like listening to music on a record, I get this warm and fuzzy feeling looking at shots captured on film :)

hello, friends! come have a look at the beautiful nuptials of denise and david. (remember their e-session at duke gardens)? this delightful day was a joy to be a part of! everything was beautiful and laid-back – most of all the bride and groom! they had a half-first look…so sweet :) the food was amazing (there were cakes AND pies), the band was so talented and FUN, and the guests and vendors were just wonderful – you couldn’t ask for a more perfect day! (if you’re planning a wedding in the raleigh/durham area scroll to the end to see who’s who!). we had such a great time and wish you two a lovely honeymoon in italy! thank you so much for letting us be a part of such an intimate and warm celebration of love and commitment! we wish you all the best!

hugs,

m&g
