finding beauty in the world around us.

Pretty photographs are one thing, but actually being able to capture genuine moments, personalities, and relationships is a rare find. It makes me even more excited for her to photograph our wedding!

Lexi and Juliet were amazing!!They were both also very nice to work with and captured so many good moments. The wedding day go by so quickly, it all seems like such a rush that having these photos to look at warms my heart. They truly captured the beauty of the day!

"Hello there!" (Obi-Wan Kenobi reference anyone?). I'm Brandon, the husband/backpack guy/emotional support/fur-baby-dad behind this operation. I partner alongside the lovely Erin to bring you guys amazing memories from your special day. My role here is to help from a business/numbers/systems perspective and to also help with anything Erin might need. If you need a new email template, Facebook ad campaign, or complex Excel spreadsheet then I'm the guy. Besides helping capture awesome weddings my main hobbies include skateboarding, rock climbing, and adventuring with wifey. Together, we're a dream team, and
there's very little that can keep us down.

Hi friend! Erin here, fur mom, wife, antique shop lover, and outdoor enthusiast. I make sure from inquiry to final gallery delivery, you're taken care of and given the best experience ever! I saw a gap in the wedding industry where I saw a lot of photographers capturing "trendy poses" instead of capturing joyful, authentic moments between a couple. So once I started catering to this gap, I was booked all the time in an overwhelming way. While I wish I could photograph everyone's wedding, I soon found out that's just not feasible. So with the help of my husband, we created Authentically You. Our team of photographers are trustworthy, kind, and the friend you didn't know you needed on your wedding day. And before your day, you'll have me helping guide you through your wedding photography experience.

Hello! I'm Juliet. I'm a photographer and illustrator born and raised in a family of artists in the sunny seaside city of Wilmington, North Carolina. I have a big love for art, traveling, and the outdoors, and when I'm not photographing, you can find me painting, rock climbing, and road tripping. I'm majorly inspired by all-things-retro--- patterned textiles of the seventies, Bauhaus architecture, and the rich black and white tones of film noir. Capturing that nostalgic, dreamy mood of the moment is my jam: the beauty in the details, the in-between lovey dovey moments, and all that dream-like goodness you feel when you look back at your photos decades from now. Let's make some magic!

Hi there! My name is Alexis but call me Lexi. I’m probably the most chill, reserved, easy-going, laid back kind of person. I pride myself in making others feel welcome and being that calming presence on your wedding day or during your shoot. I have a sarcastic whit about me and try to make the shoot really fun and enjoyable. I never want you to feel stiff, uncomfortable or forced.
I’m a helper at heart, so I’m always willing to answer questions and reassure my clients that I’m there for them. I’m always investing, learning, reading and growing my knowledge so that I can better my experience and service as a photographer.

Hey friend! I’m Erin, I help couples plan and document the intimate wedding day of their dreams!! My love for elopements is rooted in my passion for capturing authentic emotion and my love for the outdoors. My main goal is to capture images that make you FEEL just like you did in that moment. So that even years down the road when you’re flipping through your photos for the hundredth time, every emotion comes flooding back.
I am a Leave No Trace Aware Photographer, which means I’ve completed a course from the Leave No Trace Center so that I can take epic photos of my couples while also being mindful of the land we’re shooting on!! Whether you’re dreaming of an adventurous elopement, an intimate backyard wedding, or anything in between, I’d absolutely love to document your day!!
