Wrighstville Beach Sunrise Time Lapse: Johnnie Mercer’s Pier

Johnnie Mercer’s Pier is one of the most peaceful and scenic local places to enjoy my coffee while listening to the waves crash and watching the sun rise. Enjoy this time lapse of the sun rising, and you can see some behind the scenes photos below that I took while the time lapse was rolling :D

This was such a wonderful wedding to be a part of!

Erin & Kyle are a fantastic couple who wanted a low key wedding in Carolina Beach. They got their wish at this cute location on the canal. The wind and rain tried, but there was no messing up this awesome union. Enjoy some photos from their wedding day below!

River Whyless Live Music Video: “Life Crisis” at Bourgie Nights

River Whyless is an incredibly talented four piece band with a very unique sound based out of Asheville, NC. As one of our favorite bands, we have seen them on many occasions, and shot many of their shows. In April, I had the pleasure of shooting video of the entire River Whyless performance at Bourgie Nights in downtown Wilmington, NC. The always awesome Rick Badger and Patrick Shea shot as well in order to cover everything from multiple angles. I edited the live video below for their song “Life Crisis,” check it out!

Thanks to Sean from Bourgie Nights for running sound and letting us grab the board audio!

Sarah & I travelled up to Raleigh for SPARKcon this year and participated in the street painting festival for the first time since 2012. In honor of Sarah’s birthday, we made a “Birthday Totoro” drawing on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. I captured some photos and video during the process and decided to make this fun little video that also features some other parts of the festival. Hope you enjoy!
