Meeting Amanda and Mason for the first time was like reconnecting with two old friends. Both of them went to Appalachian State (which also happens to be my alma mater!), so we instantly hit it off and found out we had a lot more in common than we thought! What I love so much about Amanda and Mason is their kindness and willingness to just let loose and have fun, not only with each other, but with everyone around them. Their engagement session back in April was such a blast, so I knew that their wedding day was going to be no different, and I was right! Amanda and Mason kept me laughing and smiling the whole entire day!
One thing that Amanda really wanted for her wedding day was a good timeline to get the best photos possible (every photographer’s dream, right?). So one night we hunkered down in a coffee shop and worked out a plan for their big day, and man, was it worth it! Everything came together so beautifully and I loved ending the evening with the most stunning bride and groom portraits! Amanda and Mason were married at the Hayes Barton United Methodist Church in Raleigh, then celebrated with all of their friends and family at the North Carolina State University Club.
Amanda and Mason, thank you so much for letting me capture this very special day! I have loved getting the opportunity to tell your story to others, and I wish you all the best as you continue your love story together! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Jones!
