  beth and wes are married!! {part 1} May 27, 2010   

This past weekend I had the priviledge to shoot a fantastic wedding in Manteo, NC for Beth and Wes.  It was a beautiful and classically elegant event.  I was honored to be a part of it.

It’s always hard with wedding because there is so much territory to cover.  So I’ve decided to do this in 3 parts–first, pre wedding details: 

Aren’t the bride’s shoes AMAZING!!!  LOVE them!

 The gorgeous dresses:

 Beautiful bouquets:

 I want to add that the mother of the bride did the bouquets.  She is fantastic with flowers and has an amazing eye!

 A cool ring shot.  Starfish were a key element of the wedding.

 All the fun make up goodies…yum!!

A very cool grandma getting her make up done too.  This family is full of gorgeous women!

Btw, if you are looking for a WONDERFUL make up artist, Kelly is fantastic!  She does beautiful work and is a joy to work with!  I could reccomend her enough!

A sweet card from the groom to the bride:

  scout shoot for easton events May 18, 2010   

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of working with Easton Events for a Scout shoot.  It was an absolute pleasure work with Lynn and her team–not only are they so kind, but incredibly professional!  You will have to wait for the fall edition of Scout to see their beautiful photo, but here are some of the amazing details for the event they were working on:

  so much fun! May 17, 2010   

This was my second time working with this sweet family.  The first time was when thier first little one was born, and now, I got to work with their second addition!  And what a doll baby she is!  Just perfect!  It’s always challenging working with a newborn and two year old, but I think we go some great, fun shots–take a look:

We got some sweet cuddle shots with handsome dad.

Thanks to this wonderful family–I had a blast hanging out with you all!  You are beautiful inside and out!

  perfection! May 4, 2010   

I love this image.  It is one of my favorites ever.  It’s one that gives me chills and brings a great big smile to my face because it’s exactly what I wanted to capture with this little one!  Absolute perfection!  I’ve been blessed to work with this family three times now, and each time with them is better than the last.  It’s almost like working with old friends when I work with repeat clients.  We are comfortable with eachother and they trust me…and I love that!  Anyway, as you can see, we had a great shoot with a beautiful little girl,

http://www.andreashirey.com/blog/wp-content/images/emi_1.jpg

and beautiful flowers,
