The Oaks at Salem

Apex, NC


Katie’s Bridal Session

I have been dying to share Katie’s bridals since the day we shot them!  She is such a stunning bride.  She chose to use The Oaks at Salem for her session and it did not disappoint.  A gorgeous backdrop to match our gorgeous bride!  We spent a beautiful spring day wandering the house and grounds and having fun playing dress up.  Seriously if you haven’t considered doing a bridal session, you need to, they are so much fun and a great opportunity to try out hair, makeup, and florals for the big day.

Katie’s mom and sister tagged along with us so they could share in this special memory.  They were such great help fixing flyaways and holding the bouquet for me.  I might need to get them on my payroll 😉 

Take a peek at some of our favorites from her session below, enjoy!  And thank you to all the amazing vendors who collaborated to make her session such a success!
