Hi, I'm Holly.
I am a documentary photographer based right outside of Raleigh, North Carolina. I am married to my best friend, Drew, and we have six adorable kitties. I am about as non-traditional as they come. I am a food enthusiast and a true believer in a good meal being the best way to bring people together. I value good humor and I promise that you will laugh during the time we spend together. In my free time, you can usually find me cheering on my Carolina Hurricanes.
Advocating for mental health and the benefits of therapy is one of my life's passions, alongside documenting precious memories for my clients-turned-friends. It means a lot that you're considering me for your wedding day. I share a lot of my life over on Instagram, which is where you'll find me most days.
9/10 times, this is me.
This is Drew.
My dude. He keeps me light and I keep him a lil serious (sometimes). He is hilarious. No, really. I always wanted to be with someone that understood my humor and my wit and boy, did I get that. We've been married for almost 5 years and he truly is my best friend.

These are my cats.
Classic oldest child. Sweet, but loves to slap her siblings if they try to play her. Has a bad back and only loves pets on the head. Has RBF.
American sweetheart. Once snatched the tail off of a lizard. Loves to cuddle. Only likes to lay in the sunshine that comes through the window. Definitely the mom friend.
Goofy. Is missing a few teeth and can't close his mouth all the way. A smol boi. Makes noises that sound like Cardi B. Likes to compliment himself in the mirror.
Ambitious. Most likely to win an NBA basketball game. Likes scratches behind the ears. A lot. Will headbutt you until you scratch him. Likes water and splashing it all over the floor.
Momma's boy. Has the stature of a weiner dog. Probably good at science. Does not have ups...at all. Likes to cuddle in bed every night, but can only lay on his left side with his legs straight out.
Moody teenager. Probably likes Billie Eilish. Sass queen. Meows every time you pick her up. Likes straw wrappers and playing with the strings on the blinds at 4 am.
I am a storyteller through and through. My main goal is for you to be comfortable, in the moment, and for your photographs to take you back to the moment it was taken. Your photos should feel like YOU. Nothing is forced. No cheesy, stiff posing, no bossing around on wedding days. Just action based prompts and guidance when you need it. Forming actual friendships with my clients has been the biggest game changer in how I tell stories through my camera.
How I See It
Yay! Let's do this.
My number one goal as a photographer is to provide a top-notch, unforgettable experience for each of my clients. Because of this, I only take on a limited amount of weddings each year.
