HCSF Mardi Gras Gala

I had so much fun photographing the HCSF Mardi Gras Gala at Laurel Ridge Country Club in Maggie Valley this weekend! The event has been going on for many years. It’s a fundraiser for several local schools, which is awesome. My cousin, Beth at Beth Brown Photography normally photographs it. But she couldn’t be there this year and asked me to take over. What a BLAST!!!

Winter Wonderland Wedding

In my 25+ year career as a professional photographer, I STILL experience some wonderful firsts!!!

Last weekend I had the privilege of photographing my first outdoor wedding in a snow storm! It may have been freezing…but the “magic” of the falling snow that transformed the mountain scene into a winter wonderland made it all worthwhile!!!  It truly was an experience I’ll never forget.  The fact that Kaite and Donnie were so incredibly head-over heals in love with each other made it all the more special.  🙂

Many thanks to Cami’s cousin and amazing photographer, Beth at Beth Brown Photography, for making this incredible experience a dream come true.  It was so much fun working with you!

CONGRATULATIONS to Kaite & Donnie! May the road rise up to meet you, my friends…
