Andrew & Madison | Wilson Engagement Photographer

Like I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I spent this weekend in North Carolina visiting a sweet college friend whose wedding I’m shooting in June! Madison and I have known each other since our freshman year at Liberty, and it was so awesome to be reunited with her this weekend. My first time visiting her home in Wilson, NC was almost 5 years ago, and that’s when I was first introduced to TRUE southern hospitality and the craziness that is the North Carolina State Fair. Madison & Andrew’s wedding is going to be the epitome of southern, and I couldn’t be more excited. Not only was I able to shoot their engagement session this weekend, but I was also able to shoot her bridal session. OH MY WORD, y’all. I am going to DIE while waiting to post them! Just know this, she is going to be a STUNNING bride! Andrew, brace yourself. :)

It is so awesome to see one of my greatest friends find a godly man who leads her, laughs with her, and has promised to weather the storms of life with her. Madison and Andrew, thanks for being such great friends and being an absolute dream to shoot! Can’t wait until June!!!! :)

Big shout out to North Carolina for being so gorgeous!

Y’all just need to stop.

This one is my absolute favorite from our session.

Andrew has won over her heart… His musical abilities definitely didn’t hurt that process. :)

They wanted to incorporate Andrew’s truck, and I love how the pictures turned out!

Sunrise sessions are so ideal because the lighting is always incredible, and you don’t have to deal with the heat of the afternoon. We got a little bit of a late start that morning (whoopsies), and the sun was much higher in the sky than I’d hoped when we switched locations. A lot of photographers like shooting when it’s cloudy because it eliminates the challenge of working with the sun, but I am not one of those photographers. I think the cheeriness that sunshine brings is SO worth having to be more diligent in my shooting. However, I was so relieved when clouds started to roll in as we pulled into downtown Wilson. We were able to shoot for much longer because of the clouds, and the bright colors and personality of the location totally made up for our lack of sun!


Ladies, THIS is why you need to consider wearing fake lashes for your session!

Gosh, I can’t wait till y’all get married!

Seriously, y’all? So hott. :)

Another one of my favorites!

I had to include this one because Madison’s smirk is just awesome. :)

I’d love to hear your favorites!

Happy Tuesday! :)

    Madison - Kels. You seriously rock my socks off! I can’t even believe that my dreams of having you take these pictures actually got to come true! (a dream that for real started years ago)! You are so talented and wonderful! Can’t even wait for June 22!!!! You are the best!

    Ps- if you are considering hiring Kelsey Tice, you are about to make the best decision of your life. If you haven’t considered hiring her, you better think again. Well, if you aren’t planning on hiring her…. I can’t even imagine that scenario!

    Love you Kels.ReplyCancel
