Apex, NC, Wedding

Kaitlyn & Kevin’s Apex NC Wedding is finally here! It’s been a long strange road with these two, but I’m so glad it happened. Kaitlyn & Kevin are some of my favorite humans on the planet. I don’t think I’ve had a conversation with Kaitlyn that hasn’t lasted 45 minutes. I was actually not going to be shooting their wedding, but they loved my style so much I was going to have an associate shoot it for me. Well, as fate would have it, they ended up having to postpone a full year (there may have been a few dates in between there!), and I was able to not only photograph their wedding but film it as well!

After a long engagement, I quickly planned an intimate wedding with their family last March; I couldn’t wait to celebrate with these two the way they deserved! Their Apex, NC, Wedding was one for the books!
