John + Molly | Engaged

filed in:

seeing her walk around campus. Molly Buckley pretty much ran CNU when she was a student there!…. And that’s not an exaggeration! She has more energy and spunk than the average girl and that’s what makes her so much fun to be around!! When she emailed me a few months ago exclaiming that SHE’S GETTING MARRIED and she wanted me to be a part of their day… I was thrilled!! I had no idea Molly loved the blog and my work! I mean, CNU is small but it’s not THAT small! I give Facebook all the credit for the massive amount of blog sharing that went on within the CNU community.

I don’t care how she found out about the blog years ago… I’m just glad she did because I’m SO excited to be a part of their wedding day! I’ve always loved Molly from a distance… is that creepy?? Yes, it definitely is…. and now we get to be REAL friends!!:)  John and Molly are so laid back and their wedding day is going to be the same way. As we walked around the campus of UNC, I listened to them talk about wedding plans and their story, it was very obvious that these two are meant to be together. I noticed that they compliment each other in so many ways and I was only hanging out with them for 2 hours! I’m so excited to show you my favorites of this amazing couple! I know Molly is about to POP! She’s been waiting for these ALL WEEK!!!! Enjoy and get excited for their NC Wedding!!! I’m off to JMU for some engagement sessions! Tis the season to be engaged!:)

ohohohoh   ohohohoh   ohohoohoh OH! C-N-U! Represent!

Ivy never gets old! Well…. as long as it’s not poison.. I sure hope this wasn’t poison! I made them get all up in it!!!

 

Thanks for reading!

Introducing Everett Hill Alsop His Birth Story

It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful.  These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!

Tyler + Abby | Engaged A Washington DC Capitol Engagement Session

This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
