Addison + Rachel McDowell | Hickory, North Carolina | Bright and Romantic Hickory Wedding


October 3, 2017


It’s always a huge honor when another wedding photographer chooses me to capture her own special day. Rachel owns her own wedding photography business (check her out here!) and I have loved getting to follow along with her work. She has such a huge heart for her couples and her work is absolutely stunning! When she reached out to me about her August wedding, I could not have been more excited! Addison and Rachel have a beautiful Christ-centered love that simply radiated their entire wedding day, and capturing the two of them on one of the happiest days of their lives was such a blessing!

Because Rachel is a wedding photographer, I knew that no detail would be overlooked on her and Addison’s special day. Everything looked absolutely beautiful, from the lush and colorful bouquets, to the ornate table settings. Rachel looked absolutely gorgeous in her wedding dress and Addison made for one dapper groom! The two were married amongst all of their closest friends and family at Grace Chapel on Lenoir-Rhyne University’s campus in Hickory, North Carolina, then they danced the night away at The Crossing at Hollar Mill. I could not have asked for a more beautiful day with a more beautiful couple in love!

Rachel and Addison, thank you so much for trusting in me to capture this special day for you both and for welcoming me into your beautiful love story! I feel so blessed to have met you both and cannot wait to see where the Lord takes you both and your marriage! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. McDowell!
