I understand how overwhelming it can be to find the perfect wedding photographer. The person you choose is going to be there for that intimate first kiss but also be in charge of keeping everyone on track- especially when it comes wrangling Uncle Arty for family formals. Everyone with a camera now calls themselves a photographer, but I’m not like them. I love what I do and have been doing this for years because I give every couple a work with an incredible experience from start to finish, but also some kick-ass wedding photos that were actually fun to take.⠀
I believe my job as your photographer is to obviously capture the big moments, like your vows, but also show you the moments you didn’t see, like Uncle Arty three drinks deep showing off his army tattoo to your college friends. Besides working the camera, I often take on the role as coordinator, pep talker, family gatherer, bouquet holder, dress wrangler, and even one time, dishwasher, yes dishwasher. ⠀
I’ll do anything for my clients to make their day run smooth, and feel like that’s my favorite part of the job- seeing my clients happily enjoying their wedding day and then hearing how incredible it was to relive it once the photos are ready.⠀

I’ll go first! I’d go to Greece—no question, I only dream about that place weekly lol. Now you’re up! Let me get to know YOU!

A brief, yet powerful moment exchanged between Adam & Kenna as they shared communion during their ceremony. It's the little things like this that tell the greatest story. #momentsovermountains
Being a wedding photographer basically means I’m surrounded by lots of CAKE and lots of LOVE. Two of my favorite things! Can I get an amen? ✨ but seriously I’ve been a wedding photographer for 5 years and I still cry during the first kiss and during the father daughter dance. So if you see me crying you know why! 😂🖤 What’s your favorite part about attending a wedding?
Been on an indie-folk-emo kick lately... 🖤 maybe it's all this time spent indoors, and the fact that it gets dark so early.💀 What are you guys listening to nowadays?
We are heading to STL tomorrow to shoot our first wedding of the year. I can’t even wait!!
Lucky enough to capture this perfect moment.
a thing? I have a lot of new friends here, so allow me to introduce myself! I am Holly, a 20-something nestled here in my hometown in eastern NC. My word for 2019 is "passions" (yes, with an s.) You see, a lot of last year for me was spent worrying about others, putting off what it was that I really felt called to do for the sake of appeasing others and not living my life to the fullest. My caring and kind-hearted nature really got the best of me until the desire in me was far too strong for me to go on any longer the way I was having to live my life. So, I quit my full-time job, scared as CRAP, and decided to go for it and I haven't looked back since. In 2019, I'm taking back every missed opportunity, every self-doubt, and every comparison. I am pursuing all of my passions whole-heartedly. If you're looking for your sign that you've been praying for, this is it, friend! You are more than capable to run your empire, as long as you're all in. I am rooting for you.
Last touches + gearing up to walk down the isle to her bestie. No big deal.
Freaking out that I get to go to the NYC @hustleandflowofficial
workshop and learn from the best! Two workshops in one year? YASSS! Ya know what they say, scared money don’t make money⚡️#hustleandheart
Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering❤️
It’s a “snuggle your mini on the couch while watching Netflix” kind of night! I can’t say that I’m disappointed 🤷🏾♀️🤩
TWO OF OUR FAVORITE PEOPLE. .
) had the honor of standing next to this man as he committed himself to Courtney for the rest of their days.
you are a steadfast lover of God and people. You are down-to-earth and constantly challenging and calling others up, but all the while the most hilarious person in any room. Thank you for being you.
you are amazing!!The first time we met Courtney, we drove away saying, “wow she is SO real, so authentic, so kind.” Those first impressions have remained true of you. You are a loyal, loving, peaceful, kind-hearted woman of God. We are proud to call you both our friends.
Wedding pics coming soon! 🎉
thinking back to warm summer days as we wait for this snow storm... ⛅️

Editing has always been my favorite part of filmmaking. There are few things more powerful than a carefully, intentionally edited film. It’s your story to tell, but it’s my job to communicate it honestly and authentically, and 90% of that task is accomplished in the editing room (or in my case, a dark basement 😂)...I guess that explains my Vitamin D deficiency! 😂
Lace detail & rings. Just a few of my favorite things 🖤
I just realized it’s been 17 days since I’ve made a post on here. I’ve also had to pause whole 30 due to unforeseen life events that have left me wanting comfort food. So, enjoy my first photo of 2019.
I don’t give grooms enough love over here. My dudes are straight up bosses. 🔥🔥🔥

PHOTOS! Truthfully I can’t stop looking at our “Lifestyle” section hehe.
Maybe it’s from all the sweet memories with the people we love. Either way it’s lovely & wonderful in every way.
Here is a photo from a Lifestyle shoot we did in Norway this summer.
A dreamy photo for an adorable couple 🧡
Loved this indoor location for the wedding party to escape the winter cold! [glasserimages.com/weddings | photos by Alexis Eberle]
••• She is beautiful, but her looks never stood a chance compared to how breathtaking her soul is. •••
I’m just going to close my eyes and try and remember this warmth. It’s freaking cold out there, and I’m missing all the lovey dovey wedding moments I get in the summer. 💛
Sweet, intimate moments... ✨🖤
I have so many favorite moments from wedding days but on the top of the list is when The bride and her girls get a little one on one time. Some of the sweetest moments come from it.
