I was friends with Carmen in college and then we lost touch after I graduated.  I never would have guessed that our paths would cross again the way that they did.  Her older sister Lynn, who I was also friends with, has started shooting for me.  Many of you have met her a time or two at weddings that she’s shot with me.  Carmen just recently moved back to East Tennessee and took a job with TEIS (Tennessee Early Intervention Services) and has become our in home therapist for Noah!  She’s been wonderful and I feel like his biggest strides have been a direct result from working with her.  We’re so fortunate to have her back in our lives.  

Just a few months ago, she got engaged to Chris Walker, her best friend of 15 years.  I think that the only 2 people who didn’t know they were going to end up together were Carmen and Chris!  The decided to get married in Ocean Isle, NC (just an hour north of Pawleys Island which is where I was the weekend before with Wells and Kate).  I was able to ride out there with Chris and Carmen and spend the week with her family.  It was really nice to get away and spend some time on the coast.  I was even able to get up to Wilmington to see my friend Millie Holloman and her crew.  Everything was the way a low key beach wedding should be.  Everyone was really laid back and there were very few stresses.  The only thing I think we all would have changed would be having a coordinator for the day of.  I was shooting and directing the processional at the same time!  It went well though and there weren’t any hiccups.  Anyway, I’m going to stop chit chatting and show you the pictures already.  I’m also putting her b.session pictures at the end of the post.  We went to our Alma Mater Carson-Newman.  Very Fun!





“Easy, Breezy, Beautiful, COVERGIRL!!!



They decided (and by they, I mean Chris) not to see each other before.  They couldn’t stay away though!  So between their photo time in the schedule, they met at a corner for a quick chat…but never actually saw eachother….which made for a cool shot.






Chris is a musician and wanted to sing to Carmen as she walked down the aisle.  That was a first for me.  I was actually wondering if he was going to make it.  He did!  it was really beautiful and I got this awesome shot of Carmen watching him sing.

Her ring was a surprise, so this Carmen seeing her wedding ring for the first time as he put it on her finger. 




After we did pictures with everyone, we hopped in the car and drove a mile down the beach to this amazing pier.  I LOVE all the lines!






Carmen’s dad is a potter, Alewine Pottery, and he made the cups for the reception that everyone took home.

Chris sang a song that he wrote about Carmen at the reception.


Here is Carmen’s B.Session
