Something makes me think that this quote fits perfectly for this couple... 

I have the privilege of knowing these two amazing people and get the honor of calling them our friends. 

These two love fiercely, each other, and everyone they meet around them. Spending time with them leaves you a little more at peace and feeling filled with love. 

It was my honor to capture their 5th anniversary trip to their favorite place, Charlotte, N.C. Click on through the gallery to see all their fun! 

What do you and your love do for fun? I'd love to come help you get those memories captured so you'll have images for lifetime!

I believe we have to make a conscious choice to see the art in our daily lives. We get so caught up in our to do lists and calendars, that we tend to miss all the beauty around us.

So I've been on a mission to notice more. 

And capture it in the frame of my camera.
