Are you planning a short-notice, small wedding or elopement?

Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

With over 15 years of experience as a photojournalist, I specialize in finding those special moments that make your day unique.

It’s an extreme honor to be trusted with documenting once in a lifetime moments. A wedding or elopement day is full of the moments you spent the last year planning, which fly by so quickly.

I get to shoot for some amazing, fun-loving couples whose joy for life shines through in the photos we make together. My life as a photojournalist has provided countless opportunities to meet new and interesting people and I truly enjoy learning everyone’s story. That’s exactly what a wedding is for me: a chance to get to know incredible people, like yourself, and tell the story of this milestone in your life.

Your wedding is a celebration of life and I want you to be filled with that same sense of joy every time you pass your photos hanging on the wall, flip through your wedding album, or see the image that pops up when your spouse calls your phone.

Nothing gets me more excited than seeing raw emotion pouring out of the photos I make. My mission is to tell visual stories for my clients with high caliber, documentary-style photography and to create meaningful artwork with professionalism and enthusiasm.

Outside of wedding photography, I’ve twice been honored as the Photographer of the Year by The North Carolina Press Association (2010 and 2012) for my work with the Independent Tribune, a Concord, NC-based newspaper.

For the past three seasons, I've had the privilege to work with the Carolina Panthers as part of their photo team.

Kaleigh & Brent

Brent and I, as well as our entire family and friends, are absolutely in love with all of our pictures... People have told us our pictures look like they are out of a magazine. All of our pictures truly document our wedding day from start to finish even including all of the small details. We couldn't be more pleased... Thank you so much James!
