I (Shavonne) planned a cabin trip in Gatlinburg for Travis' 28th birthday party. We were surrounded by long-time friends and a beautiful mountain scenery. According to Travis, it was the one time I wouldn’t suspect a proposal!
Travis was praying for what I thought was dinner that night. The prayer quickly changed from the “gathering of family and friends” to words of endearment that shook my entire being, and then he proposed. It was beautiful, it was perfect, it was for us. I remember waking up that next morning feeling like I was in the best dream ever.
Originally we were thinking of a rustic style, but that changed when we picked a more modern venue. I had my gown designed by Mikaella Bridal from J Majors bridal. It wasn’t too fancy or heavy and I fell in love with it at first sight. Travis wore a midnight and navy tux. He was so handsome in it!
As for my favorite memories of the wedding day, I have so many! Turning the corner to see my husband standing at the altar, seeing the emotional bond between Travis and his sister as they danced, seeing our friends and family in fellowship, and my first look with my father.

I'm Phy and I'm from Washington DC now residing with my college sweetheart and three beautiful children in Concord, North Carolina. I first have a passion to love God and that in return allows me to love people. Since I love people I always seem to meet the most interesting people with the most rich stories and histories. That's where I come in. I love capturing people's lives, their stories, loves, and histories through a lens.
