Ashley and Jarod | Corolla, NC Beach Wedding
A couple of weeks ago, I shot a beautiful, intimate wedding in Corolla, on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Here are some of the portraits in some amazingly beautiful evening light-
"Blood Moon" Lunar Eclipse | New Bern, NC
Above- Composite covering 5:10 AM - 6:22 AM
(October 8, 2014)
Having never before even witnessed an eclipse, I was really excited to shoot this morning’s lunar eclipse. I set up along the Neuse River at about 4:45am, just before Earth’s shadow began to creep across the lunar surface. Over the next hour and a half, during the penumbra phase of the eclipse, the shadow continued across the moon. At total eclipse, the moon turned a beautiful orange/red “blood moon,” as it’s called. Just minutes after total eclipse, the sun rose and the moon set. A great way to start the morning! (All times EST)

Milky Way + Bodie Island Lighthouse
After shooting a really nice, intimate wedding in Corolla (9/30/14), I spun down to the Bodie Island Lighthouse to meet up with my friend Rick to snap a few night shots of the milky way rising along the old light. A very, very bright crescent moon got in the way a little bit, but we still came away with some neat frames!

October 2014 Desktop Wallpaper Calendar
October’s calendar, like Octobers in past years, comes to you from the mountains of Western North Carolina- an incredibly beautiful place this time of the year.
This is also the 37th monthly wallpaper calendar that’s been offered, meaning that we’re now in our 4th year of bringing a free download every month! Crazy how time flies. Thanks for the support!
If you’re interested in a calendar that you can hang on the wall, the 2015 Uprooted Photographer Calendar is now available in two different editions- New Bern and Travel. You can find them both here.
2015 Wall Calendars | Available Now!
Now that autumn is upon us, it means one thing. Calendar season! Well, I’m proud to announce that the 2015 Uprooted Photographer calendar is our 5th annual edition. Thank you all so much for the support over the past 4 years. This year, I’ve decided to offer two completely different editions. One for the town I call home, New Bern, NC, and one dedicated for 2014’s travels to Colorado, Pennsylvania, Virginia and the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
The New Bern, NC edition is 100% dedicated to the town I have come to call home. I have never done a calendar completely filled with images of New Bern, but it is certainly time and overdue. I hope that it not only finds a place with locals, but also with those who have visited or hope to visit some day.
The Travel edition will take you to west to Colorado, back to the East Coast to the Outer Banks, north to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and back over to the pristine wildlife refuge of Chincoteague, Virginia. I have never traveled as much as I have in 2014, so I hope this collection of photos can sum it up well.
Calendars are available for pre-order, immediately, here, or by following this link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/UprootedPhotos?section_id=16082120&ref=shopsection_leftnav_7
An official announcement will be made when they ship, which will be later in October.
