St. Mary Parish is the most beautiful venue for a wedding in Wilmington, NC. Very reminiscent of Italian Catholic Churches. Trey and Joann made a great choice. So many fun moments from this day captured. Not sure a couple could ask for a better downtown Wilmington day with gorgeous Spring weather. We captured a hilarious moment downtown with a harmonica player, and Matt McGraw took some amazing photos of that moment. But what really stood out from the fun moments of the day aside from the family and friends hilarity on the dance floor, or the limo ride through town, was the genuine toasts given. We LOVED Trey’s dad’s toast as the best man. We included a little bit of it in this highlights film, but he took all the guests back to a very sentimental moment from Trey’s birth, and passed along a new illustration of that for Trey & Joann’s new life together. This day wouldn’t have been complete without the amazing talent of Brian Carpenter, from Toronto, Canada based Studio 67. Brian has been a friend of mine for a while in the video community, and he flew down to help us out with Trey & Joann’s day. Him and Melissa rocked it out, and captured some heartfelt and cinematic moments. We appreciate him helping make Trey & Joann’s day seamless!
Trey & Joann, please enjoy this keepsake from your wedding. And we hope you still have those stylish glasses Joann! Thanks so much for inviting us to your wedding and trusting us with these moments.

Up the Crystal Coast, north of our home of Wilmington, is a quaint, historic town called Beaufort, NC. It’s laid back, country feel definitely rubbed off on Amber & Patrick’s wedding day at the church Amber grew up at, Ann Street United Methodist Church. The day just felt like a breath of fresh air. As you’ll see, Amber was nothing but smiles and excitement leading up to her walk down the aisle. One thing that I really remember about this wedding that Amy and I shot is the smell of the church. It smelled old, antique….wise. I loved it. And the sun came in just perfectly through the stained glass. It just felt right. You’ll see by the look in Amber’s eyes, and the tears in Patrick’s, that they were where they wanted to be. Everything else faded away. I love it when that happens at a wedding.
Before the reception in Morehead City we strolled down Atlantic Beach right at sunset. Little directing was done on our part, we just let Amber & Patrick soak up the fact they just became husband and wife. They took care of the emotions we captured. Our favorite photographer in the Atlantic Beach area is Ellen LeRoy, and we had such a pleasant time working with her and her team. I wish all weddings could have been this easy!
Amber & Patrick, thank you for bringing us into your home town and treating us as family. Enjoy this small window into your wedding day. We hope you always remember how joyful you were that day.

Just a few months ago we were lucky enough to work with the Salmon family, filming their daughter Kelly’s Wedding in Rose Hill, NC. We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to work with them again on their son, Ben’s wedding in Kentucky. We will get more details to you soon, but for now, we are just too excited to wait! You have to check out Ben and Brittany’s same-day-edit. The downtown shots were so sweet and showed so much love. Enjoy this amazing Kentucky wedding with a hilarious skit by the Mother-of-the Groom that we guarantee you have never seen before! Watch video HERE
