bald head haven . cover + armchair guide

11.20.11 ~ Updates, Commercial ~ posted by Millie, Brent & Amanda

I should probably write and launch this blog post before next year's Haven comes out. (It's been sitting on the back end of my blog for a while waiting for me to take a second to write and release).

Tomorrow (MONDAY) we'll be migrating to a new blog with our brand spanking new and super fun look. You won't even recognize it and lots of things will be changing to make the blog and our website site a better and more enjoyable experience. This has been over a year in the making (it takes time to make things just right). Enough about the rebrand for now, we have a new MHP twitter account you can follow for updates on that and the next time you see a blog post here it will be with the new link and announcement so look for that tommorrow!

Last year Brent, Amanda and I headed off to Bald Head on assignment for an article on paddle boarding in the 2011 Haven. Little did we know we would also get the cover shot on this assignment. Brent and I headed into the ocean with underwater housing for our cameras and shot into the sunset. It was such a fun experience and this year's Haven features our shots on the front and back cover!



While shooting our Family Vacation Article for the very same issue, Amanda grabbed this awesome shot of our sweet nephew Gavin which became the cover for the 2011 Bald Head Island Armchair Guide. Love!

You can see and read the entire Haven online (including the full paddle boarding article) here!


This year while traveling to Bald Head for a 2012 Haven assignment I spotted a full rack in the ferry terminal and grabbed some iPhone shots. It's so fun to see your work in print, especially in stacks of magazines!

laura + paul . wilmington, nc

11.19.11 ~ Weddings ~ posted by Rebecca

Laura and Paul got married in Wilmington, NC on an absolutely gorgeous day!


I love the getting ready part of the day. There's so much anticipation, lots of friends, and laughter. Laura's bridesmaids were amazing - helping with makeup, hair, packing things she needed for the day, and for the honeymoon.




Paul waited patiently to see Laura for the first time that day. Oh, and that American flag on the inside of his jacket? That's because he is in the foreign service. How cool is that? He and Laura spent the last year in Ghana, and will be leaving for South Africa very soon!


I do love it when couples choose to have a first look before the ceremony!


And so do they! This is maybe my favorite reaction of the whole day.




Laura and Paul brought these fans from Ghana for their guests to enjoy. I love the bright colors!


Airlie Gardens provided a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony. Love those aisle markers and all of the beautiful touches not this wedding by Salt Harbor Designs!



Everyone waiting for the walk down the aisle. I love the anticipation of moments like these.


The beautiful bride and her parents.



It's not often that you see all the parents standing up front with the bride and groom. I loved how the families showed their love and their support for Laura and Paul's marriage in this simple act.





And they're married!


Laura and Paul's bridal party was awesome - fun, happy, and helpful to the two of them all day.


Polka dot ties are awesome.


Did I mention that they were fun?


The reception was set up on the big oak lawn, and it was absolutely beautiful.





Such a beautiful couple!




I loved the New Yorker covers as table markers.


Such a gorgeous reception. Long tables are my favorite.


The dinner was provided by A Southern Thyme and it was nothing short of amazing.





Laura and Paul's guests loved to dance, and the floor was hopping all night!





Laura and Paul, thanks for letting me be a part of your big day! Wishing you all the best in your marriage and your upcoming travels!

julianna + brian . charlotte, nc

11.19.11 ~ Weddings ~ posted by Rachel

Julianna and Brian were married right here in the Myers Park area of Charlotte, North Carolina. Their wedding was classic and elegant, which are also words I could use to describe the couple! I knew that Julianna was going to be a stunning bride after meeting her a few weeks earlier for her bridal session at the Duke Mansion. What I didn't know what how much Julianna's face would light up when she saw her husband-to-be, Brian. Sweet love!



Mary assisted me for the day and got this shot of the guys while I was with Julianna and her girls as they were getting ready. Thanks Mary!





I love this image of Julianna's dad waiting for her to come and walk down the aisle with him. It's one of those moments during a wedding that is full of emotion and anticipation.


The ceremony was beautiful and full of tradition.





After the first kiss, Julianna and Brian were all smiles!





The trolley was a great addition to this classic wedding and drove the wedding party to The Duke Mansion in style!



A few more shots of Julianna and Brian on the grounds at the Duke Mansion before we lost light.






The cake was decorated with real brooches and was a stunning centerpiece on the dance floor.


The first dance at this wedding was out of this world. That pink wash on the walls, the stars, the chandelier, the marble floors, the gorgeous couple...I can't take how pretty it is!


Let's dance!





Instead of traditional bubbles or sparklers, Julianna and Brian opted for ribbons! It was such a fun way to leave a great party!


Congrats to Julianna and Brian and their families for an amazing wedding and reception! I wish you all the best!

knox's first birthday party . raleigh, nc

11.18.11 ~ Kids & Family ~ posted by Rebecca

Did you hear? Knox turned one!

I was so excited to get the chance to photograph Knox's first birthday party. I knew that his mom, Dina, would have cooked up something absolutely amazing, and I was right! The superhero theme was just perfect for a little boy's birthday party.



Isn't he the most precious thing ever? I love the t-shirt and the superhero cape, but Dina left nothing untouched - even adorning her kitchen island with a city skyline.


Every little one invited to the party had their own little superhero shirt to wear for the day.


Just a few of the details...


And what is a birthday party without cake?



Such a beautiful family!







First birthday parties are the best. The kids play, the moms and dads talk, and everyone has a great time!


All of the kids at this party were super cute!






I can't believe we managed to get all the super kids lined up in front of the city, but somehow we did!

Happy Birthday, Knox! And many more!
