Hi! I'm Hope Ann! I'm wedding photographer based in North Carolina & I love long romantic walks to the taco truck, & ohhh yeaaahhh...I'm obsessed with sweet tea. 


Best of Weddings 2019

I love what I do as a wedding photographer. Just getting to witness so many special moments throughout the wedding season……is…..just…….ahh! I can’t even put it into words. It’s just amazing.

Just like with the last blog post, I had a hard time choosing which images to put in here. So I chose a mix of real raw emotions, and stylized shoot images so you can see both parts of what I love! I love that during the slow months I can have creative control over bridal & couple images, but I also love the raw emotions of a real wedding day.

I met so many new vendors last year, and can’t wait to work with them again in the future. That’s truly what I love about it. It’s the relationship aspect of everything I get to do. From the relationships that I get to build with the vendors, the brides, grooms, and bridal party.

I truly hope you all enjoy a look back at some of my favorite wedding & bridal moments of 2019.

(This first styled wedding shoot, I was asked by Alishia of Him & Her Photo to be a guest photographer. It was so much fun! ) (All vendor links are listed at the bottom of this blog)

I was so thrilled to do these photobooth style images for a couple. Everyone had so much fun!

These two had the most fun. We did a “fancy” photo & a fun one.

Morgan & Hayden chose to do a home wedding. This belongs to Morgan’s grandma & grandpa. It’s over 200 years old. How cute is this house?

How amazing is her little hot pink dress? Madison’s Nana was such a gem!!

His face when he saw his bride for this first time. *insert all the heart eyes*

Fun fact. It poured rain all day, & was freezing cold! But Sarah rocked this unique Masquerade Bridal Session.
