Fine-Art wedding photography for couples who are passionate about love, life, and creating memories to prove it.

Serving The Coast & Outer Banks

When you meet Summer, it doesn’t take long to know she’s a southern girl who’s as warm and welcoming as her name implies. She grew up with a love of antiques, is a hopeless romantic, and believes in fairytales because she experienced her grandparents’ love story.

Summer is living her best life in a small coastal town, just two steps from the beach. She, her fireman hubby, and their two kiddos love to adventure, and they share their home with an adorably naughty pup and a few of the most precious cats, one of whom is an Instagram-model simply gracing them with their presence.

When it comes to weddings, she approaches every moment and detail with the understanding that she’s creating heirlooms, preserving memories, and capturing emotions to be revisited for years to come. It’s about so much more than photos on a page; they’re the story of your timeless love.

Summer is an absolute delight to work with. She is sweet, personable, and professional. I am a fan for life! My husband even commented on how amazing she was, and how well she kept things flowing on our wedding day. Plus, our pictures turned out amazing!
