” Candace’s aesthetic is the epitome of class, and the images she captured will certainly stand the test of time. If you’re looking for those Bride’s magazine/Pinterest inspiration board quality pictures, Candace is your girl!”-Kathy &Greg  

I’m Candace Hazelwood, owner and photographer at Hazelwood Photography. Brides have said, they choose to book me as their wedding photographer because I’m easy going, organized and most importantly, know how to get the shot. I’ve been professionally photographing weddings since 2011 and have loved every moment I’ve captured. Weddings can involve high emotion and even the most laid back bride encounters some level of stress on their big day. I help brides stay relaxed by remaining organized and anticipating any obstacles that may occur. On the wedding day, I’m in the background capturing moments as they naturally happen. I understand that most people feel uncomfortable in front of the lens. My approach is to guide and direct you as needed, but most importantly, get the shots you want quickly, so you can head back to enjoying your wedding day! 

My background is in fine art, with majors in Art and Anthropology. My fine arts background helps me to quickly assess any scene and capture beautiful moments in time. While wedding photography is my primary focus, I also specialize in lifestyle portrait photography. When I’m not busy creating artwork, I enjoy spending time with my amazing husband and two beautiful kiddos.

Choosing a wedding photographer can be a daunting task, by choosing Hazelwood Photography, you are booking a team with experience and passion. I love to talk about weddings and would be happy to discuss your big day. To find out more about the booking process please click here.

Wedding Photographers in Wilmington, NC

I was lucky enough to call the Wilmington area home for seven seven years. During that time, I became very familiar with all the lovely cities surrounding Wilmington. A large majority of weddings I photograph each year, typically take place either on the beach or somewhere close to the water! One of the great advantages of running a photography business in the Costal Carolinas is having all the beautiful coastal scenery abound! Wilmington, NC and the Coastal Carolinas have a long rich history which can be experienced by taking a stroll through the historic downtown Wilmington waterfront, or visiting the many inter coastal areas. There are so many gorgeous wedding venues in this area, it’s a brides dream! Over the years, I have traveled up and down the Carolina Coast and had the good fortune to shoot at many of the beaches here.  A large portion of my clients are out of towers that come to this area either on vacation and want beach portraits, or decide to have their wedding somewhere along the coast. Hazelwood Photography serves: Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Holden, Ocean Isle, Emerald Isle, Topsail Island, Surf City, Hampstead, North Topsail, Onslow, Jacksonville, Southport, Sunset, Calabash and the greater Costal Carolinas. Hazelwood Photography takes pride in creating compelling images for the discerning bride and groom.  For more information on how to book for your wedding or portrait session, please fill out the contact form. Wedding Photographers Raleigh NC

Wedding Photographers in North Carolina

Originally, I grew up in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina. I still visit the foothills often, as most of my family still lives up that way. Autumn is my favorite season on the West side of NC. The beautiful changing of the leaves is something the coastal side doesn’t fully experience because of the different foliage. Seriously, driving on the Blue Ridge parkway when the leaves are changing, is like being in a beautiful painting, if that makes any sense?! I still haven’t had the opportunity to photograph a fall wedding near the foothills and I would absolutely go gaga to photograph an autumn wedding there!  Anyways, before I get completely off on a tangent, I’m a native to NC and  I have lived and traveled all over this wonderful state. So, for brides who are looking for a low key, easy to work with photographer who creates timeless images of your most cherished moments, please get in touch with me. Just fill out the quick contact form and I’ll be in touch with you soon! Hazelwood Photography will happily travel anywhere in NC, including, but not limited to: Winston- Salem, Mount Airy, Greensboro, Charlotte, Raleigh, Asheville and the Outer Banks. Please fill out the contact form for more information.
