Love this sweet couple! Joe has known Lee's family long before there was a Lee! Lee's parents were Joe's neighbors growing up and have remained lifelong friends. We were thrilled to shoot Lee and Kelsey's wedding! Kelsey was a quick fit into the family and these two have such a special love! It would happen that their wedding was during the one weekend the whole entire south had a snow freak out! I, however, think this made the day just that more magical. It's pretty rare that in the south(and Georgia no less!) you get to have snow on the ground at your wedding...so special! The Wheeler House is a beautiful venue with all the southern charm one can muster- it made for a beautiful backdrop. Enjoy these photos of a beautiful couple that I know are going to do great things in their life and marriage! Love you both! Be sure to watch their amazing fusion video at the end of this post!
As I sit here this week with all of this beautiful weather, I can't believe that winter is essentially over! I'm excited for spring weddings and portraits, but winter is my time to recoup, spend more time with the kids and lay low for a bit, so spring coming means we have to get back into our more chaotic routine! Wedding seasons is not for the faint of heart! I had lots of goals for winter, including blogging all of my back logged weddings, so I better hop to! Many more things on the list to accomplish!
We loved getting to work with Lindsey and Garren! In the rainiest fall wedding season we've ever had, hurricane Joaquin hit on their wedding day. What could have been disastrous turned out alright when the downpour and wind parted for 15 minutes after their ceremony and we were able to get some natural light portraits in addition to our indoor shots! These two rolled with it and had so much love pouring onto them from their family and friends! Check out some of my favorites and their fusion video at the end! Happy Wednesday!
The back of Lindsey's dress! Love!
Meghan and Chris had such a vision for their wedding! They adore uptown and planned the perfect engagement session there and then the perfect wedding! I love shooting in-between the buildings and alleyways in uptown Charlotte. There is such different light there and the textures and buildings make for so many vignettes, we are able to really make use of our photo time in a very small space! The biggest highlight of their night(besides getting married, obviously) was the HUGE surprise Meghan had for Chris when she had Norm the Niner, the UNCC Mascot, and Sir Purr, the Panther Mascot, come into the reception! Everyone was thrilled and it was so fun! Chris had no clue and was totally surprised..and this man lives for football...so I think it was a total home run! Enjoy some of my favorites from their day and be sure to watch the photo fusion at the end. When love and light and weather all come together, I am one happy photographer! Happy Tuesday!
Kristin and Evan have been such a dream to work with! I actually hate that our "time" is over and their wedding is complete (although obviously happy for them!). Kristin, she was probably one of my biggest "muse's" for 2015:) Those eyes! And in front of the camera, she turns it on;)(don't be embarrassed, K, it's just true!) Every session we had together was a blast! Shooting out at The Farm at Brusharbor is always a treat- it's a little slice of the countryside right outside of Charlotte. And in the fall? Perfection! Anytime we have a wedding there we know it will be beautiful! Please enjoy some of my favorites and don't forget to watch their fusion video at the end- it's become one of my favorites! Happy Superbowl Weekend!
"First Touch" is always such a sweet moment! Great alternative for those that want to have a moment together without truly "seeing" each other.
During their ceremony, the pastor had the two face the crowd for a big portion of time. I LOVED IT! We were able to capture such great moments of their faces during the ceremony and get some genuine reactions that might have otherwise been concealed.
Trump National is such an awesome venue. They have made quite a few changes over the years, especially since ownership changed, and I just love what they have done to the place. It had a totally different vibe when it was known at The Point, but my favorite thing about the place now is the big white ceiling and the elegance that has been brought to the venue. The getting ready room is so beautiful, it makes shooting the "Getting Ready" part of the day a dream….even in bad weather. September and October of this year was the rainiest of wedding seasons we have ever shot, so I hated that for Leslie and Stefan, but what I loved about their day is that they didn't let wind and rain stop them from all the feels. Doing a first look really helped us to be able to use the venue to it's best, lots of covered porches to shoot under to still allow for some natural light photography. Their bridal party were troopers and everyone was just so pumped for these two to find each other. Enjoy some of my favorites from their day, and don't forget to watch their photo fusion video at the end!
