Katie & Jon's Haw River Ballroom Wedding

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!

Katie & Jonathan | Engagement Portraits in Downtown Apex, NC

It was a steamy evening for Katie & Jon's engagement session last Sunday in downtown Apex... in all the very best ways. I've got some really killer photos that I'm saving for their visit to the studio, but I liked these romantic black & whites so much I had to share them ahead of time!

Christine & Jason | A Front Room Wedding in Durham, NC

Looking through the photos from Christine & Jason's wedding at the Cookery's Front Room in Durham, I kept coming across images that illustrated the two elements of their relationship that make me believe that they are a great couple, destined for a long and happy life together. First, these two are really into each other. It helps, obviously, that they share so many interests and have a similar sense of humor, blah, blah, blah... but I kept catching these amazing moments of emotion, and certainty, and happiness, and as obvious as you'd think that would be on a couple's wedding day, the pomp and circumstance around a wedding far too frequently get in the way. They hand-crafted every element of their wedding, and therefore had a lot invested in the details (which are amazing and could easily have taken over my whole post here), but on the day of the wedding, stayed perfectly focused on the reason they were there, and it was a lovely thing to witness. Second, Christine & Jason are super-freaking fun. I mean, I work with lots of fun people (and happen to consider myself to be fun, too, thankyouverymuch!), but they are FUN. They are silly, creative, energetic people whose palpable happiness together, rather than forcing other people out, seems to draw their friends and family in... as infectious as a big yawn. Being fun might not seem like the key to a happy marriage, but as they say, marriage can be hard work, and if you can have fun while you're working hard, well, you're two-thirds of the way there.

There are so many great images from this wedding and I had a hard time narrowing it down for a quick preview post, but I figure a handful in keeping with the themes mentioned above would be a good way to start:
