Katie & Jon's Haw River Ballroom Wedding

Hello hello... welcome to the new website! Normally at this time of year, the blog is running full-tilt, but the truth is that the last month or so has found me focused on building an entirely new site, which is live as of today!

I thought a lot about what I wanted to share for the first post on the new site, and ultimately decided that Katie & Jon's Haw River Ballroom wedding last fall was the perfect choice, both because it was AMAZING (see photographic evidence below), and because as you poke around the redesigned Megapixie website, you might notice a rather big change:

The weddings have disappeared.

If you know me, you've probably known that I've been scaling back on weddings for a while now. It's been a struggle, as I love working with engaged couples and participating in the all the amazing, creative ways they choose to celebrate their commitments, but as my business has grown, I've had to make some choices about where to focus my energies, and so I've chosen to concentrate on the work I do for families. Mind you: when the right couples come along, I'll still happily work with them, but in general, you can expect to see fewer white dresses and more sweet little ones when you come to visit.

With that said, enjoy these... Jon & Katie are the kind of couple that have made this decision such a hard one!

So many great people and places made this wedding what it was:

Now go take a peek around the new site and drop me a line to let me know what you think!

Lila & Spencer | Wedding Reception at the NC Botanical Gardens

I get to know most of the couples I work with over several months of meetings and engagement sessions and coffee dates and a beer or three so that by the time we get to the wedding itself, it's like I'm photographing an old friend's big day. Lila and Spencer were a bit different, though: I met them first on a three-way phone call back in late August, then again for a quick cup of tea at Weaver Street, and finally - most recently - at their wedding reception a couple of Saturdays ago (the wedding itself was just the two of them and a gorgeous sunset in Jamaica). What's crazy is that in just that very short period of time, they still managed to feel like old friends... and one day I really hope I can call them that. Here are a few portraits from that beautiful fall evening... more soon!

Hannah & Kyle's Backyard Wedding in Roanoke, VA

  Happy Friday to all of you, and a happy, happy almost-anniversary to Hannah and Kyle, whose beautiful backyard wedding in Roanoke was a year ago this weekend! In thinking about them and their big day, I realized that whereas I'd posted a preview from their wedding shortly after the fact, I'd never gotten around to posting the whole, lovely event... and today seemed like the perfect occasion! Hannah & Kyle's wedding was awesome in so many ways - a gorgeous location, a romantic, misty fall day, great food, and a fantastic band - but I'll never forget the sweet, heartfelt duet these two performed for their guests and each other during the ceremony. There wasn't a dry eye in the house... including mine  :D
