Revolutionary Love: The Frida & Joe Photoshoot

Rebellious, Art-Inspired, Punk Rock Wedding Inspiration at The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve in Raleigh, NC. I like to approach styled shoots as an opportunity for artistic expression, a chance to do the art we aren’t always free to do with paid work.
