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. 


Bridal Session at Reynolda Gardens-Wake Forest

This will forever be one of my favorite bridal sessions! Reynold Gardens in Wake Forest is stunning! I’ve done several sessions down here, but this was my first ever bridal at this location. It was during the spring, so the flowers were fresh in bloom, and in all colors.

I usually get to a session around 10-15 min. early so I can scout out different locations. By the time I got done, I had a text from Madeline letting me know she was here.

As I went out to meet her she was already walking toward me, & my jaw just dropped! (To me it never gets old seeing brides in their wedding dresses for the first time.) Her dress was this stunning mermaid style with lace detailing all over. Ahhhh!

But the thing I loved the most was that she made this a family affair. Her immediate family joined us, as well as her soon to be family. They took care of everything. If a hair was out of place they rushed in to help. If we needed the bouquet out of the shot, they rushed in to hold it. Mom in law was crouched behind Madeline in one shot to help out, & even dad was even helping me use my reflector to cover a couple sun spots on her.

Everyone was just there to support her, be there for her, and to cherish this major life milestone.

I hope you enjoy these images down below as much as I have!
