The Rachel May Workshop | Raleigh NC Film Photographer


Continuing education is very important to me, so taking two days to learn from talented industry professionals and make connections with other amazing photographers from across the country was a no brainer! I had so much fun at Rachel May’s workshop in Virginia at the lovely Catesby Farm Estate this past November! We ate amazing food, had insightful conversations, and drank all the wine (well I did, anyway). Rachel and Adriana (of Adriana Marie Events) were such wonderful hosts! I came away with new friends, a refreshed mindset and a long list of goals I wanted to tackle in the upcoming year.

Here a few of my favorite images from the beautiful styled shoot portion of the workshop! Vendor credits are below!

Whitaker & Atlantic Wedding Inspiration | Raleigh NC Film Wedding Photographer


I love stretching my creative muscles and trying new things when it comes to photography - I’ve found these creative shoots have helped me grow tremendously as a photographer. Couple that with getting to collaborate and work with some of the most talented industry professionals and it’s like magic!

This shoot was no different, it was a wonderful opportunity to play around and try something new. It was also where I discovered how much I LOVE bridal boudoir! Brides, if you haven’t considered doing a bridal boudoir session you absolutely should! This would be an easy add-on to (or even a substitution for) a traditional Bridal Portrait Session. And what could be better than presenting your soon-to-be husband with some gorgeous images of in a beautiful and timeless album on your wedding day?

I’m so excited that this beautiful shoot was recently published in PRINT in the Carolinas Magazine! There is just something so thrilling about seeing your images in print. The talented list of vendors is below!
