In Case You Missed It...

Hey everyone! It has been an exciting couple of weeks for us. We released our brand new name and blog- Silver Feather Studios! The support from our friends, brides and fans was overwhelming and we are still reeling from the awesomeness of it all. We are certain that 2013 is going to be our best year yet! Keep up with all the new stuff on our new Facebook page!

Over the past couple of weeks, we have been recapping 2012 and remembering all the sweetest moments that made last year sooo great. Click on the photos below to see the blog posts. 

Brian also shared some of his favorite videos on the internet - anyone need a pep talk? 



Be sure to add Silver Feather Studios and our new blog to your RSS feed to keep up with all the latest. Have a happy day, like a BOSS!! :D



I think my heart is overflowing with excitement right now. Overflowing because at this very moment, after months of planning and designing we get to finally tell the world...

Effective February 1st, Faces in Focus Photography will henceforth be known as...



Yes, it's true! We are officially changing our name. We started this business over two years ago as a completely different company. Now, as we start on what would technically be our third year (what?!) we are embracing it with a brand that fits the type of business we are today.

If you're finding out about this via our Faces in Focus Photography website, then click on the logo above and hop on over to our brand spankin new home - All new weddings and engagements will be posted there, as well as everything you need to know about my latest sugar addictions, movie quotes, and favorite videos found on the interwebs. 

What does this change mean for us exactly? Hop on over to our new blog to find out!

We are so glad to making this change and hope you'll make it with us! 


Much Love, 


Ariana & Brian


Burlington Event Photographer | Shaw 40th Anniversary

In December, Brian and I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Mr. and Mrs. Shaw's 40th Anniversary Party. With the help of their two daughters and some of their closest friends, they walked into Fleming's Steakhouse and were completely surprised to see their friends and family waiting for them. It was a beautiful dinner, and I know both Brian & I were glad to have been able to photograph such a lovely family!

Melissa - Thank you for asking us to be a part of this beautiful evening, it was a pleasure meeting you all! :)


Burlington Event Photographer | Nick & Sam's Anniversary

Nick & Sam had a small wedding, just the two of them and a couple friends, on a cold wintry day in New York. It was sweet and beautiful and fit them perfectly. Five years later, they're still sweet and beautiful and fitting each other perfectly. To celebrate 5 years of being better together, (and the fact that they had recently moved from New York to North Carolina) their family and friends decided to throw a surprise anniversary party. It took a few weeks of planning, sneaking, whispering, and straight up lying, but we managed to bring together a lovely surprise!

Sam, Nick - we love you. It's as plain as that! We're so glad you're here and look forward to a lot more anniversaries to celebrate together!

Much Love,

The Watts

We went with a black and white them with a pop of green. Many thanks to our friend Kathy, my mother, and Pinterest for helping us put together some lovely details, all by ourself! :D

Yes, we had a candy table. Yes, I spent a lot of time there.

Nick had to be in on the secret to help keep Samantha in the dark, and it worked perfectly.

Not a dry eye in the house when Sam cried at seeing her father at the party, who flew in just the day before!

Yes, we made them do a first dance for all of us...

AND a father-daughter dance. Pops has some smooth moves!

Photo bombing, for the win!

And i'll end with a beautiful shot of our two very wonderful friends. We are so glad you are part of our lives! :)


Don't Worry 'Bout a Thing

Brian and I took a vacation last week - first one in forever! - and had an amazing time!! We hopped on the Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas for our very FIRST cruise, and spent five days tanning, dancing, and having plain ol' fun. It was an amazing trip! We made two stops in Haiti (Royal Caribbean's private island) and in Jamaica. Talk about beautiful locations - with the sun out and the water warm, you'd never guess it was JANUARY. 

One part we're super excited about is the fact that Brian brought along his new baby - the GoPro3 camera. The footage he brought home? Truly epic! We have a great view of ourselves tubing, swinging off rope swings, and playing dodgeball. Brian is already working on putting together a vacation video to top all vacation videos. It should be out next month, so be sure to stop by the blog and check it out!

I, of course took a ton of photos and can't wait to share those with everyone. BUT, we have a secret to tell you first... WE'RE MOVING!

Well not WE, but Faces in Focus Photography is! In the next few weeks, we'll be releasing a brand new blog AND an all new website! This is just one of many surprises we have up our sleeve. If you want to stay in the know and keep apprised of all the new information, sign up for our newsletter here:
