Thank you for stopping by!

I am Pranee Loffer (as of March 2006, before that it was Pranee Heaton) I was born in Thailand, grew up in Sydney, Australia, married a Southern boy, and we have 4 awesome kiddos! We have called beautiful Monroe, NC home since 2009. I am 4 foot 11 inches tall...just incase you were wondering!

My loves are God, Family, Relationships (people) & that order.I have always admired photography from a distance and finally, in January 2008 I picked up my Canon and have fallen in love with the magic of stopping time. I am so blessed to do what I love. I love love love it!! To think that your wedding photos will be seen for generations to come is so humbling, and worth documenting well. I have since switched to Nikon and have not looked back since and feel this partnership with good for my craft.

It is such an honor to photograph weddings. I cry at EVERY wedding, no exception. Even rehearsals. I can’t help it, celebrating love gets me all emotional.  After working with so many amazing brides, I am convinced that every bride is ridiculously creative, and have all secretly been planning their wedding since they were a little girl.

My advice for brides to be:  When planning your wedding day ...Be selfish. Ruthlessly. NOT an evil Bridezilla, those are 2 different things. What I mean is, go with your gut and the vision you've always had. Everyone who is helping you, have already had their wedding day or will have THEIR own one day. So you have  to think about you ( and your groom) and don't second guess yourself!! This is one of, if not the biggest celebration of your life... have fun!

 Happy wedding planning!
