So hey, I went completely missing from this blog!  We(me and the kids) took a lot of time off in July and August to enjoy summer and spend time away from home.  I hoped to post more things while out of town, but you know how it goes!;)  There are so many things to blog- get completely excited for the next few weeks! We have some pretty big changes happening in our personal life, so I will be making a "life update" post soon!

Meet Katie and James!  You may remember them from their engagement session and Katie's amazing cherry blossom bridal portrait session.  They chose Alexander Homestead for their wedding, which is settled right in the heart of Charlotte.  It threatened rain ALL day, but it stayed away until everyone was tucked completely into the reception- we were so happy!  Their vows were personal and the joy that flowed from these two was incredible.  Thank you so much for allowing Joe and I to share this day with you!  Also be sure to check out their Photo Fusion Video at the end!  I thin it captured their day perfectly!  Happy Thursday!

 

I love my sweet brides so much!  Patricia and Zach were such a joy to work with- they both are the kindest, sweetest people you will ever meet.   They made everything about their wedding so.much.fun and EASY.  It was a great day that could have been ruined by rain, but the clouds held tight until every person was in the reception! The clouds gave us the most beautiful filter for our portraits and I love the coloring it produced for us!  Patti's parents worked relentlessly on turning a "shed" (debatable;)) into the most perfect reception venue where friends and family TRULY danced the night away.  Here are a few of my favorites from their day and a slideshow at the end with more favorites.  Enjoy!

 

We absolutely loved working with Laura and Michael! They had such a beautiful day- we have been so lucky this spring! Both of their families are amazing and we were so thankful they trusted us with such an important day in their lives! I adored Laura's dress, and I've said it before, but a groom and his men can NEVER go wrong with a classic tux! It was the perfect match for their traditional church ceremony and Myers Park Country Club Reception. We shot Fusion for their wedding and I can't wait to show the final product when it's finished!  Enjoy these bright and sunny images! 

 

We are in full wedding season swing at LLP!  That pretty much means my days are filled with lots of computer work and lots of bridal portraits.  I love seeing the vision my brides have worked for for so long come to fruition!

I am super excited to share Nicole and Russel's wedding that was held at Adaumont Farms! I've said it a hundred times, but we love this venue!  Nicole and Russel were married in April, which can be a toss up on weather.  Don't let these bright and sunny photos fool you.....IT WAS FREEZING! But I am so thankful Nicole decided to stick out her original plan instead of moving to a rain plan(which some encouraged her to do because of temperatures).  I knew years from now her pictures would look amazing and everyone would forget it being a tiny bit(ok, a lot a bit) cold!:)  I am thankful to her family and bridal party(read: bridesmaids) for sticking out the weather with no coats and not complaining a bit! We tried to make quick work of it, but a good attitude from a bridal party is half the battle! Enjoy some of my favorites from her big day! Wishing these two nothing but happiness!
