one of the favorite things about my job is getting to meet so many different people and a lot of my clients become dear friends. mel and mike are two of those people. I had been hired by mel’s sister brittany to shoot her wedding to josh and just a few weeks later I got a call from mel and mike wanting me to shoot theirs as well. we hit it off right away and stayed in touch since their big day. I knew that mel had an interest and obvious talent in photography so when kristie and I were planning on hiring new team members last winter, I gave her a call. happily she has joined us and been such a wonderful addition to our GPA family! and in just a little less than a month, she and mike are going to become new parents to a baby girl they’ve named bella :) do you think little bella is going to be photographed much?? her 3 aunties here at the studio are SO excited!! 

  • where and when did you get married? shad landing, snow hill october 16th 2009
  • was there a special reason for choosing your venue? we’re both outdoorsy, we really like the woods and wanted to get married somewhere that would have a beautiful view of the fall colors and be able to house our guests, too. we had a great, scenic backdrop and the pavilion we had for the reception had a cozy fireplace. it was perfect!
  • what was your most memorable moment(s)? mike and I both agree – the rain. ever since I was a little girl, I always wanted to get married in the rain. we did and it was perfect!
  • if you had it to do over again, would you change anything and what/why? not a single thing. it was perfect!
  • where did you honeymoon? we took a stay-cation for our honeymoon. we didn’t travel anywhere, just took a few days off to spend time together as newlyweds!
