Working with Katie and Jeff over the last year has been such a pleasure. I love this couple! Katie used to teach with Joe and I was more than honored when she asked us to photograph her intimate Linville Ridge Country Club wedding. Set on the side of a mountain, everything Katie planned was just beautiful. Their family came from near and far and Katie and Jeff rolled out the red carpet for them with a weekend full of amazing events. The thing with intimate weddings is that the bride and groom can truly be present with their guests, and that was definitely the case here. Katie set aside time for her whole family to have group portraits and everyone danced the night away. We were so happy to capture it all, but mostly, to see Katie just so incredibly happy! They both "caught" each other and I will never forget this day! Enjoy just some of my favorites and don't forget to watch their fusion at the end, it is now one of my top favorites we have ever done. Happy Thursday!
So excited to share just a few of my favorites from Leslie's bridal session! It's no secret that any time I can get out to The Ivy Place for bridal portaits I am in complete heaven. Their gardens are unmatched with their perfect amount of messy and polished. Such a beautiful spot for such a beautiful bride! Happy Tuesday everyone!
This year I deem "Year of the Sibling". This happened a couple of years ago, too. I guess it is a little cyclical! Where to even begin with Kelle and Sam. I've been loving her since she was in middle school, her family means the absolute world to me, and really....there are just no words. This family is one of the most selfless families I know. Amazing parents raising a house full of kids, all who have turned out to be pretty incredible human beings. It's easy to see why, because when you are around this family, you just FEEL. THE. LOVE. Truly. With open arms, everyone is drawn in and made to feel right at home. I guess that happens with you have 6 kids and hoping to adopt more. Kelle and Sam have the sweetest love story, and what's funny about this wedding is that we have shot a sibling on BOTH sides of the bride/groom. It was a perfect culminating trifecta! Joe and I have been been for them since their relationship first started, and it was easy to see they were meant for each other. I really can't do this post justice so I'll let the photos speak for themselves: Kelle, I have never seen you more happy. Sam, I am so proud of you for making this lady your wife;) We love you all so much!
Enjoy these photos from their beautiful wedding (which happened right before it started raining for 3 weeks). Their reception venue is the new Pavilion at DEI. I couldn't recommend more, and you will see why. I don't know that there is a more beautiful venue in all of the Charlotte Metro area. Don't forget to watch the slideshow at the bottom for more photos. Happy Friday!
It's hard to believe we are already nearing the end of our wedding season! We still have quite a few weddings to shoot, but this fall I managed our schedule a little better than falls of the past, so it doesn't seem QUITE as nuts as usual. It's a really great feeling! Summer seems like a lifetime ago, somehow. Sarah Beth and Jeff had such an amazing summer wedding....but I will say without question that I DO NOT miss the heat! Theirs was a hot one, with summer storms blowing through all day, but it still ended up perfectly. The skies parted for our romantics and their guests danced the night away, quite literally! Enjoy some of my favorites from the day and don't forget to watch their fusion video at the end. Happy Wednesday!
I was so sad to see my time with Ally and Wes come to a close. Their wedding was beautiful, but I will miss these two! Adaumont Farms is one of our most favorite venues in the area...right up 85, it is great for those wanting larger guests lists while still maintaining an outdoor wedding ceremony. Every time we have been there, it has been perfection! There is space for both sides of the wedding party to get ready, and the property is one photo opportunity after another- we are always in photo heaven there! Ally and Wes were just the sweetest, and Ally, well she is one of my muses. She does't take a bad photo! Wes isn't too shabby either;) Love these two and their sweet way with each other. Too many favorites to pick from...enjoy my over-sharing and be sure to check out the slideshow at the bottom! Happy Tuesday!
