My first wedding of 2019 set the bar high, friends! I just can’t say enough wonderful things about this sweet couple, their families, and all the talented vendors that made this day possible. I typically meet all my couples before their wedding, either at the engagement session or meetings, but that wasn’t the case for Hailee and Ben. They live in NC, so we were not able to make any trips to each other beforehand. I got to know Hailee via email and we instantly connected due to our Type A personalities and like-mindedness. I knew she was sweet, down-to-earth, and we even had a mutual friend who was the person to recommend me to her. I had a really good sense of who she was, but when I met her in person on her wedding day, we were practically immediate best friends! When I met Ben, he was super easy to talk to, very laid back, and was a total trooper for all the lovely portraits we took! 🙂 In a nutshell, I absolutely ADORE them. I am so thankful I was able to witness such a special day for this incredible couple. They radiate joy, fill the room with laughter and smiles, and are consumed with love. Everything about them and their wedding day was a dream!
I could go on and on about them, but the pictures I chose to share here will be telling the story of their wedding day from beginning to end. From details and gifts, to getting ready and first looks, to saying “I do” underneath the oak tree, to sweat soaked dancing, golden hours kisses, and a perfect sparkler exit… Just sit back and enjoy living vicariously through this bride and groom’s special day and keep scrolling because it gets better and better and better- no lie! Wishing these two all the blessings in the world, congratulations Hailee and Ben!

Love from the Bride: “If you are looking for a photographer who is prompt, organized, fun, talented, and sweet as pie, look no further! After our first photographer was unable to do our wedding, I had to scramble to find another. After talking with about 20 photographers, I was feeling defeated….until I connected with Remy. Instantly, I knew she was THE person to document our biggest day ever. Since our initial interaction via email, she was prompt, courteous, organized (Type A’s unite!), and just the all-around best. Her questionnaire and wedding day guide were super helpful! I didn’t officially meet Remy until the day of our wedding, but she brought an instant sense of calm and joy. She made Ben and I feel so comfortable, and beautifully captured our love. She was super quick with our photos, and y’all – she is an editing wizard! I would recommend Remy a thousand times over and will continue to use her for all our life events, as I am happy to call her my friend!” -Hailee
