Sara & Taylor – Gentry Farms Wedding – June 2019

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. 


This day couldn’t of been any sweeter. The evening before they had a campfire hangout to soak in the last moments of being engaged surrounded by their closest friends & family. To kick off their wedding day, Sara began her day with her bridal party & Taylor with his groomsmen. Sara & her bridal party did their hair and make-up while in the cutest pajamas while Taylor and his groomsmen hung out in their cabin! One thing about these two is they love quality time; whether that is with each other or with their friends and family so I knew that it would be a very sweet time for their special day.

During the reception, we took a walk into the gorgeous golden hour to photograph some more moments of Sara & Taylor as one. It was such a sweet time walking through the meadows and down the path lined with pine trees. I loved these moments!

At the beginning of the ceremony, something really sweet happened. To share Sara with her guests & most importantly to Taylor, her dad opened the barn doors and there awaited Sara. It was like a fairytale. What a special moment to see unfold; certainly brought a lot of tears to everyone watching, including me!

Congratulations again Sara & Taylor! Thank you for including me in your special day! XO
