married | austin+ann marie | winston-salem wedding photographer

Austin and Ann Marie (or Ammie, as she's called by her friends and family) are one of the most vibrant, kind, and fun-loving couples I've ever had the honor of working with. If you spend any amount of time with them, they'll quickly make you feel welcome and comfortable, and you'll soon realize just how much they love one another.

I've gotten to know the two of them over the past several months from our initial meeting to their engagement session and most recently, Ammie's bridal session, and I knew that their wedding would be one to remember with the help of Faye from Coordinating Dreams. We started off the day with the bridal party getting ready at WinMock at Kinderton...

Without seeing each other, Austin and Ann Marie took a moment to pray together before they headed to the church. There wasn't a dry eye in the room...

Once everyone arrived at St. Leo's Catholic Church, Ammie's father saw her for the first time. His face was priceless!

After a beautiful ceremony, everyone headed back to WinMock for the evening's festivities. The bridal party were such troopers, toughing it out in the heat and humidity to get some great photos...

You gotta love a group of groomsmen with personality... check out their superhero socks!

Aren't these two just precious?!

Austin and Ann Marie had a wonderful, unique idea to use a bench as their guestbook to showcase at their home...

Ammie and her friends treated guests at their reception to a choreographed dance number...

workshop :: amy lynne originals :: winston-salem wedding photographer

A couple of weeks ago, I got an email from my friend Amy, owner and creative mind behind Amy Lynne Originals, asking if I'd be willing to take a few photos at her upcoming workshop, and I was more than happy to accommodate. I first met Amy working together at Tim and Ashlea's Childress Vineyards wedding a couple of years ago and have since had the opportunity to photograph her headshots and get to know her and her work a bit better. She is an amazingly gifted floral designer based in Winston-Salem, and I am so thrilled that she has begun offering these classes for everyday folks like you and me.

This particular workshop was BYOC - Bring Your Own Container - and Amy provided some awesome instruction for creating the perfect floral design using what you have. She supplied a varied assortment of flowers and filler for her attendees to use, and honestly, it was so much fun and so educational, even for me and I wasn't even a student!

Floral design really is an artform, and I just love how much personality and individuality shines through each person's creation. These were the final products of the workshop attendees:
