Loved spending an afternoon with Kristin and Evan at their engagement session!! I know so many of us are ready for the "real warm weather" to come this way, but I tell you what- there is something so perfect about these mild days with the perfect light and everything being just the right shade of new green and being able to walk around and just enjoy spring. I can't wait to shoot their wedding at The Farm at Brusharbor this fall- it is such a great venue! Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!
We are in the thick of it again! I swear just five minutes ago it was January! Our wedding season is off to SUCH an incredible start! I've said it before, but I'll say it again that we have THE BEST CLIENTS IN THE WHOLE WORLD! These brides, MY brides, they make me happy. These ladies are kind, generous, family loving, beautiful, caring…and so much sweeter than me(really, as Joe)! I am thankful for them and thankful for this job which celebrates them and the loves of their lives.
Mary Catherine is just the sweetest darling you have ever met. I've nicknamed her the Shelby Sweetheart:) because she is just that! Her family and friends SHOWED OUT to celebrate her and Ethan. Here are some favorites from our bridal session together! We chased rain, but managed to get our session in! Her reception was at this same beautiful family property- most amazing! Can't wait to share!
Andrea and Steven's wedding day was a dream. November can be so hit or miss, but their day was absolutely perfect in every way! Sweet friends and family surrounded them in the beautiful chapel where they said I do and then the reception party didn't stop all night! This wedding was another one of our "reunion" weddings- so many of our past brides/bridesmaids/people we have come to know and love were there! That always makes things doubly fun! (if thats even possible). Love these two, their love and devotion to each other and I am honored we got to spend this important day with them! Here are some favorites and their photo-fusion video, do check it out! Happy Friday!
Ya'll, this rain. It's just yuck! I worked on this session today and was reminded of the sweet sunshine we had on the day of Lauren and Chris's engagement shoot. I adore these two. At our consult, we realized we literally live just blocks apart...It is always such a small world here in Cabarrus County! I have too many favs from our time together at a friends private property. I love some of my ole "trusty" shooting spots, but whenever a client has access to a gem of a property nearby, I am in heaven! It forces me to think differently and take in the new surroundings. Enjoy all of the love and the sunshine felt in these photos!
Love these smiles.
I can't believe winter is officially over and we are back in wedding season! Did that feel like just a minute to anyone else?! Well if you have been enjoying the weather(pollen aside) the last couple of days, you know that yesterday was a dream day to get married! I think everyone in the wedding party + guests were just pinching themselves for such a beautiful day, when just a few days ago, it was a 90% chance of rain. We couldn't have kicked off our season ANY better than a blissful carolina day with sweet, sweet people in love at one of the finest venues in Charlotte- The Duke Mansion. I can't wait to show a peak of their wedding later in the week! (determined to keep this blog current after getting so off track this past fall!). Maggie and Brian's wedding was all the loveliness you can imagine. For now, here are just a FEW of my favorites from her bridal session we shot out at the Mansion. Happy Sunday!
Al of Maggies Jewelry + mink were her grandmothers. I love when brides incorporate sweet sentiments from their family into their bridal look. What a way to cherish memories of the ladies married before you.
