Thomas & Kiley

Thomas & Kiley had a beautiful wedding at the historic Crossnore Presbyterian Church.The church is located in a beautiful woods close to the main road. According to Wikipedia, “Crossnore Presbyterian Church is a historic Presbyterian church on US 221/NC 194 east side, opposite the junction with Dellinger Road in Crossnore, Avery County, North Carolina. It was built between 1924 and 1926, and is a one-story, “T”-plan rock building with American Craftsman influences. Also on the property is a contributing stone arch (c. 1926) and non-contributing church cemetery established about 1929.[2] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1]” Crossnore Presbyterian Church I heard as a child that Dr. Mary Sloop (1873-1962), wife of Dr. Eustace Sloop, had some children from the Crossnore School, Inc. help carry rocks from the nearby river to build the church.

If you are on Facebook, you might have seen Thomas and Kiley’s campaign to raise money for adoption, “flocking” peoples’ yards with pink flamingos. It was a lot of fun to follow along on Facebook to see who might get “flocked” next. When they were married at the end of June in 2015, I had not yet set up an official photography business and didn’t have a website.

So now I present to you a few images from their wedding day. Don’t forget to “Like”, “Share” and “Comment”.

Crossnore Elementary Fall Fling VIDEO, 2017

Crossnore Elementary Fall Fling VIDEO, 2017

Children’s portraits are always fun to take. I had a good time capturing these images at the Crossnore Elementary School 2017 Fall Fling and creating this VIDEO for you to enjoy.

It was a warm evening and got fairly hot in the library where the photo backdrop was set up. We had both doors to the inner courtyard open and a large (loud) fan blowing to help cool it down. The kids were well-behaved and all seemed to have a fun time. We even had a few parents jump in to have their pictures made too!
