I built my first camera out of plastic from a kit at age 12. No adjustments, no lenses, no flash - just a hole in plastic, a button, and some film.

Getting Married in North Carolina

With a diversity of landscapes ranging from mountainous regions to strikingly sandy beaches, North Carolina is a fabulous vacation location in addition to being a charming wedding destination. The state is divided into three main regions: the coastal plain, the Piedmont region and the Appalachian Mountains and foothills. Because of its varied range of elevation, from sea shore to the mountains, this state has one of the biggest varieties of climate of the southeastern states, making for ideal wedding location and wedding photography options. The Piedmont region, located in the central portion of North Carolina contains the state's most urbanized and densely-populated cities; Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, Winston-Salem and Fayetteville, which are all fantastic wedding locations. With a rolling countryside, small rivers, streams and waterfalls, couples will find tremendous locations for beautiful wedding photographs. The western portion of North Carolina is lined with mountains that make up the Appalachian region, including the Great Smoky Mountains, the Blue Ridge Mountains, Balsams and the Black Mountains, which can stand tall as a majestic backdrop for your wedding photographs. The coastal plains, which make up the eastern 45% of the state, start off with sandy islands called the Outer Banks, which form the Albemarle and the Pamlico Sound. These areas are relatively flat and reveal the massive Atlantic Ocean and make for ideal locations for your wedding photojournalist to shoot brilliant photos.
