fine art wedding & engagement photography for nc couples

even more memorable

making your day

I have a passion for photography and use that passion to preserve moments for future generations.  My goal is to capture your love for one another and all the beautiful details of your wedding day.    

You've found yourself here most likely because you are recently engaged and I cannot wait to hear more of your story!

and so much congrats!

welcome! 

One question every couple asks is "what is your style?"  To put it simply, I shoot clean and clear.   If you look at my work you will notice a lack of filters.  You will also notice my images are not artificially dark or bright.  I deeply believe in shooting images as they appear in person.  I believe clean and clear images will always stand the test of time.  Thirty years from now, when you open your wedding album, I do not want you to see your wedding photos through the filters of 2019, forever time stamping them to a particular photography fad.  I love both fine art photography (stylized editorial images) and candid, natural moments.  I understand that weddings call for it all: capturing authentic interactions, fine art posing/styling and also traditional posing for portraiture. I love and do it all.

 I offer couples fine art invitation suite styling in all my packages.  Each suite is styled using colors, greenery, and or florals from your wedding day.  I will work with you and your planner to design a custom suite that is a true reflection of your wedding.  This is often one of the first photos in your album and sets the tone for the beauty to come.

Sarah Sterner, bride

"Pamela and her team were the most perfect thing about our wedding. From the moment I met her during my bridal portraits, I knew that she would care of every single detail at the wedding and felt so relieved. I have a lot of self confidence issues with certain parts of my body, and Pam was so sweet to ask me ahead of time to figure what I like and don’t like. She was extremely cautious of the poses and how the pictures were taken to ensure I loved myself in the end product. And don’t get me started on how sweet she is. Every single person at our wedding fell in love with her. She was with me from the beginning to the end. I would 100% recommend her to any other bride. Her prices are GREAT (I researched forever and was shocked when I found her) and she just makes you look/feel like the most perfect bride in the world."

Kylie Flanagan, bride

"Pamela was the nicest, sweetest, most professional, comforting and best photographer we could have ever asked for for our engagement shoots and wedding. The way she captured special moments between my groom and I was better than I could have hoped. She came early, was prepared, kept up with a timeline (making the day flow so easy) and was by our sides the whole night (never missing a shot). From the start of the day to the end of the night she was not only a pleasure to be around - but really took the time to capture the happiness and love we both felt. I did not think it was possible to cry anymore after the wedding - until we got our wedding pictures back! We cannot thank Pamela enough for being our wedding photographer, and we cant wait to use her again for more of our lives stepping stones. We highly recommend her!"

Lauren Hartnett, bride

"Pamela was our wedding photographer and we couldn’t have been more pleased! Photography was really important to us because it’s one of the few tangible things you walk away with after your special day. We chose Pam for her natural yet realistic style in photos. She keeps the beauty of the shot while not making it look too photoshopped/styled. After we hired Pam for our wedding, we did a trial run with some fall family photos to also double as engagement photos. We immediately knew she would do an awesome job at the wedding as she was so calm and easygoing. On our wedding day, she got all of the shots we wanted and I never had to worry. We got so many compliments from our guests that they rarely saw her yet she was always there to capture the best moments. We absolutely love all of our wedding photos and would definitely recommended her to anyone getting married!"

Noor Ahmed, bride

"I am absolutely obsessed with these photos! I can’t explain to you how much I love every single one of them! I am beyond grateful that you guys were able to capture this day for me. Your work is absolutely beautiful. Before contacting/booking you, I looked at so many other photographers work but truly no one compares to your work. I knew from the get go I wanted you to capture the day, and those pictures prove that I’ve made the best decision ever! It was awesome working with you on Saturday. You really brought the vision I had in my head to life, so I can’t thank you enough! I think people are getting sick of me because I talk and show the photos to everyone I know!"

Alexandra Mercel, bride

"Pam, I just want you to know how incredible we think these pictures are. I know I said it yesterday but my family and friends have been calling me non stop with "I've never seen pictures so beautiful" and "she captured everything about the day more perfectly than we could have imagined." So I just wanted to echo all this and say thank you once again. It is all so so so beautiful, I am literally speechless. You are so talented and we feel so lucky to have found you!"
