Stevi & Logan are two charming, charismatic, and, above all, genuine people. The kind of people, in fact, whom you just want to be around because their energy is magnetic, positive, joyful. It might get a little tired talking about our couples' vibes, because I do it a lot, but it's a privilege of having my own business: I have a fair degree of agency in who I work with, and I get to work with people whose vibes talk to my own.

All this positive joy, this fun energy, imbued Stevi & Logan's whole wedding day. They bought a home in North Durham and have been fixing it up over the course of the pandemic, so what better place to showcase their commitment to one another, share irreproducible memories, and celebrate with families and friends. There are two shots in this set in particular that speak to why I treasure being invited into clients' homes, and why I think hosting events or sessions in your home is an excellent decision: The very first photo, here, of their wedding invitation, surrounded by photos of the two of them, family, friends, cats, and a Rob Lowe meme, is exactly as I found it while threading my way through the chaos of wedding prep. Later on, as we were wrapping up couple's photos, we made our way in through the house to try to get a "family photo" with Stevi & Logan's cat, Roscoe (who was mewling pathetically at us out the window while we were taking photos in front of the house!), and before we wrapped up, I took advantage of the light at the end of the hallway to make a portrait of the two of them—which turned into one of my favorites from the day!

There's so much else to love here, so much that was personal and delightful: Their officiant was a very good friend who did double duty as bartender later in the night. Stevi wore earrings given to her by her aunt, and both moms received bouquets with charms that featured childhood photos of their children. Stevi & Logan collected colorful vintage stemware for their guests, to serve as both their glass for the evening and a unique favor. In addition to a gorgeous Oreo cake from Happily Desserted, Logan's mom, whose baking is evidently the stuff of family legend, created several desserts to round out the spread. During one of the toasts, at Stevi's best friend Ashley's behest, a whole collection of pickleback shots—for which the bar where Stevi & Ashley met is apparently well known—was passed around to guests who wanted one, including, notably, Stevi's dad, whose reaction face is probably one of my favorites of all time.

All this to say: Stevi & Logan are delightful human beings who deserve every available joy that marriage (and life!) can provide. I felt privileged to be involved in their wedding day, and am now passing down that privilege: Enjoy a selection of my favorites from the day below, and send some of the good vibes that Stevi & Logan exude right on back to them!
