I’m so excited to tell everyone that I finally got published in the October-December issue of Carolina Bride. I have four full pages with two weddings from the Hampton’s and Arizona!
Bo and Kathryn’s wedding was such a treat for me and Brandon to be a part of. When I first met them, we chatted for a long time about the Lord, and all he had done in our lives. I hoped they would pick me to shoot their day. And when Kathryn called me I was relieved, because I felt like I was supposed to be their photographer. I’m so, so happy they picked me.
Their engagement session was such a treat for me to shoot – (here) because these two were so magical together in their emotion toward each other. I figured that the wedding day was going to be just as fabulous. It was pretty amazing to watch them kiss for the first time at the altar and see the sparkle in each other’s eye during romantic photos of just the two of them.
Bo and Kathryn got married in at Florence Baptist Church in Forest City, NC. They had two receptions, one at the church and one at the Forest City Club house, where we danced the night away. Besides indian weddings I don’t think I’ve seen a group of people dance so hard. I was stunned when Bo took the floor for break dancing right after he preached to his crowd of friends, telling them about the love of Jesus. I cried, he cried, Brandon almost cried… I’m sure there was a whole bunch of people crying.
We had a beautiful time with these two.
Congrats Bo & Kathryn! Thank you for letting us be a part of your day!
And once again, my husband second shot with me and assisted me. We are becoming quite the team. You may see his face on this site a bit more next year.
This is a 365 day photo project I am doing called “Many A Moon”. This is the whole month of July. See them all at rebekahfancher.tumblr.com
Could these two be any more beautiful? Meet Bo and Kathryn, and I could seriously photograph them for days. Crazy beautiful and crazy in love. They couldn’t stop smiling. Their wedding is less than a month away….
Thank God it didn’t rain! We had the most dreamy evening shoot at Anne Springs Close Greenway. The light was golden and perfect! This has to be one of my very favorite sessions ever.
Any photographer that has the honor of photographing one of their closest friend’s wedding knows the emotional side of the coin. While your working hard and doing what you do as an artist, you’re also emotionally driven to not burst out in tears every five minutes. I think I lost it like three times during their ceremony. Seeing your friend be loved so deeply, so intensely, so fully is extremely impacting and glorious. I was in awe, watching the beauty and the faithfulness of the Lord to take two people from different continents and bring them together.
Ashley and I have been friends probably since Ashley was four. I grew up with her, her family and some of her friends. We did crazy things as kids, and we still do crazy things as adults. And Scott I’ve known only for a year. (I wrote more about their story here, on their engagement session post) I love, love, love the way Scott loves Ashley. His gentleness reminds me of the way my husband loves me.
When Scott saw Ashley coming down the aisle, it was freaking amazing watching the little boy come out of him. Exuberance and heart-felt joy painted his face and took over his body. Both of them were so giddy. Ashley looked completely stunning in a champagne Justin Alexander. Her Hawaiian sun-kissed skin and black hair caused her deep brown eyes to sparkle.
Scott and Ashley got married on a friend’s beautiful property on June 1st. They offered hay rides down through the woods to an open field where the ceremony took place. The reception took place in a large garage which they decorated with a travel/international theme.
As I was editing the portrait photos this week, I announced to my husband that I wish I could document their lives and photograph them every day because they are so gorgeous to photograph and are so in love. They are eye candy.
They ended the evening with heart-shaped Chinese lanterns, sparklers and a send off in a gorgeous mint green car. These two are some of my favorite people, and I’m honored to have stood alongside them on their day.
Special thanks to my second shooter, Kori Hoffman, and my third shooter, my husband. (Yes, I had so many images to go through…it was rough to pick the best.)
Congrats Scott and Ashley! I love you guys so, so, so much! Thank you for everything!

Rebecca and Jesse were our neighbors for years and years. We had the best snowball fights in the winter, pumpkin carving in the fall, fireworks in the summer and hiking in the spring. Late nights spent doing pranks on our other neighbors, taking long walks around our neighborhood and laughing for hours. We love the Graston’s. Last year they moved a little ways away, to a beautiful farm. They had their first baby and we still miss them living a few doors down. Every now and then we go out to “Grastonia”… shoot guns, go four wheeling, badminton, bbq, and swing on the hammock listening to the peacefulness of farm life.
Their beautiful boy, David turned one this month. I took some photos of this fabulous day! Enjoy! ;D
Happy Birthday David!
This past weekend was an incredibly crazy time for Brandon and me. On Saturday, I (with two second shooters help) shot a beautiful wedding (which I can’t wait to blog!) at just about 34 weeks pregnant. (Shy one day) My husband snapped this photo of me below. For a brief moment I had to flip off the shoes…
