Meet Danyelle & Luke // Hanging Rock Anniversary Session

The Branding Experience



I'm a NC based brand photographer (but I love to travel for work+fun). Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, and in another life (maybe this one) I'd probably move to Waco, TX!

I'm always down to try a new local coffee shop (even better if they have lavender latte), and working on mastering the perfect at home brew recipe. 


“I lost my way all the way to you and in you I found all the way back to me.”

It’s been a long week for me and I am finally able to blog these images! Danyelle & Luke, you are rockstars * Danyelle and I met through The Rising Tide Society, connected & planned an anniversary session here in North Carolina. They are from Tennessee and I was so happy they wanted to drive to North Carolina to collaborate and meet me! Not only did I have the honor of photographing them but also learned their story and how year ONE of marriage has been. Even though I am a single gal, it’s still a beautiful thing to hear and learn about newlyweds and what all life has in store for each and every one of us.

If I had to choose one favorite moment from this session, it would have to be the peak. Hehe. We hiked up the trails and then reached the top of Hanging Rock State Park. No matter how many times I hike this trail the view up top is always breathtaking. It goes on and on and on. I think to myself each time how blessed we are to have views like these.

I am so thankful for these moments & I look forward to the many more to come!
