senior portraits: evan | goldsboro, n.c.

allen_evan_senior-1

Evan. An athlete. A smart pants. A super hero. An aspiring fighter pilot. This kid is on top of the world, y'all (or will literally be when his dream of becoming a F-22 fighter pilot come true). Evan used to be my neighbor in Seymour Johnson's base housing back in the late 1990's. He and my brother were total bros and would rule the trampoline, mummify G.I. Joes, and carve their names into everything. When Evan's mom asked me to do his senior portraits, I had no idea he was getting ready to graduate! I still saw him as my younger neighbor who was crazy strong for 4-years-old. For his portraits, we ventured out to some of Goldsboro's iconic places including Seymour Johnson Air Force Base to see the planes-on-a-stick. It was a very foggy Veteran's Day morning, which made this session inspiring but also nostalgic as the jets appeared to be shooting out of the sky, it seemed.

Evan is on his way to do awesome things with his life. He's at the top of his class and aspires to go to the Air Force Academy (finger's crossed that he gets in!), he's a top wrestler and football player at his school, he wants to study aerospace engineering in school, he's not afraid to be a goofball, and he has a clear passion for his superheroes (seriously, he's got the best superhero wardrobe in the world), and could be a model if all else fails. But on top of all these accolades, he's a genuinely wonderful big brother who is super chill and super patient, a great son, and a big dreamer who loves his country. Evan, good luck with all your life endeavors and I hope your ride to the top is a spectacular adventure!

There is something magical about a wedding in a rose garden -- something that is romantic, quaint, and intimate. This something was Elizabeth & Drake's beautiful wedding. These two, unlike any other young couple I've seen, have a huge love for each other spurred by their love of God. They glow when they look at each other, they know how to have fun together, and most of all, they love and respect each other. Surrounding by their large and awesome families, they took each others hand in marriage without hesitation. They are such a super sweet couple, who took their wedding day and made it so very personal to them. One of their first dates as students at N. C. State, was at the Raleigh Little Theatre Rose Garden and Drake's love of aviation drew them to RDU's General Aviation Terminal for their wedding locations. These two brought their excited families & friends together to celebrate their love in such a gracious and Christian way! Their personal touches to the ceremony and the reception were unbelievable and radiated the love that Elizabeth + Drake have for each other! Oh, happy day, these two are married and it was an absolute perfect day!   Elizabeth + Drake, thank you for letting me photograph such an amazing time in your life! It was my honor to be a part of such a special day! What I will remember the most is your loving smile's towards each other, the way y'all can make each other laugh and enjoy life, and the great amount of love and respect you have towards each other! Best of luck to y'all's new life ahead of you...may Ferruzzi Airlines take you on the journey of your life!
