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!

 

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.

It was long weekend, two amazing weddings….and just like that we are in the downhill of our wedding season- 4 to go.  At the beginning of a 16 wedding wedding stretch that started in aug- 13 of which were back to back- my steam is running low, so today was great just spending time with the boys (who are currently napping).  Computer work needed to wait, but I am so behind that I just had to do a few things- including getting some of Lisa's bridal portraits up on here.  She is my muse. I just LOVE taking photos of her!  I can't wait to share their wedding that took place at The Ivy Place.  We did her bridal portraits there as well….it is truly one of those magical venues. Enjoy some favorites! Happy Monday!

 

It's Monday night, so while I watch my guilty TV pleasure (besides The Bachelorette)- Dancing with the Stars- I am thinking back on this past weekend…it was a dream….and a bear!!! Two amazing weddings!!  We made it:) And honestly, with the cooler temperatures, it wasn't too bad.  All of the double headers we have had in the past have been with VERY warm weather, which seems to take an extra amount of energy that is hard to get back for a few days.  But this weekend, a dream…all of it!  We are going to need to play lots of catch up to get through September and October edits!  Meet Danielle! I have loved getting to work with Danielle and Drew over the course of their engagement (and on a secret project we have yet to show, too!). Their wedding was fabulous!!  Amazing time with friends and family and one of the best parties we have seen all year! I can't wait to share! In the meantime here are some of her bridal portraits we took on the campus of Duke.  Drew is a HUGE Duke fan so Danielle wanted to surprise him with some bridal portraits in Cameron Stadium.  We had such a blast!  View some of my favs- the camera loves her so she made it hard to pick! Happy Monday!    

Pics or Drew:)  On the bench:)
