High Hampton Inn, How I Love Thee

I am convinced that High Hampton Inn is the perfect place to vacation. When my mom made our reservations early on in the year, I dreamt about it for months before we actually made our voyage! Basically, happy thoughts of High Hampton Inn got me through the semester that I never thought would end!
What is so phenomenal about it? It is simple. It is old-fashioned. It is peaceful. This particular trip to High Hampton was with my mother, grandmother, aunt, and uncle. The ladies in my family love to talk, and the multiple porches and long dinners provided ample opportunity for us to do so. As a girl who loves to devour magazine pages, the atmosphere begged for me to take the time to do that as well. We took walks around the property, ate delicious food in the dining room, dressed up for dinner (a mandatory rule the inn has made that I am obsessed with), mingled with other guests, participated in post dinner bingo and afternoon tea, tried out the new “Hampton Market,” and slept with the windows open at night. I even got the privilege of going to the High Hampton Inn Spa! It was an absolute pleasure. When that kind of treatment is involved, who cares whether or not there is internet, phone service, or air conditioning?
This vacation meant so much to me, because it was not only a breath of fresh air after an insane semester, but also such a sweet time with my family. I have a feeling that many guests leave with that same thought as well. That is just what the Inn does, it provides the perfect opportunity for you to relax and enjoy one another’s company.
I will let these images speak for themselves, and hopefully you will be able to understand a little bit more of what High Hampton Inn is like. I crave it every summer, and I hope to keep going there for years to come!

Mrs. Sallie Brown…

was a beautiful bride!! I can’t wait to show you more photos from this gorgeous day, but for now this is all I am going to give you… until they are all finished and some film is developed.

I teared up looking at them. Oh my. It feels like yesterday they asked me to shoot their big day, before I had ever assisted a wedding or even considered doing so. As soon as they asked me, I thought…. Well this is a really big deal!!! I best do as many of these before that day as I can!! Soooo as a result I have been able to assist multiple, learning different things each time. I have so very far to go, but I hope they love these images more than they ever thought they could, and my wish is that they last a lifetime!
All in all, it was a fabulous day and much thanks to my assistant Kate Allen! More to come, my friends.
