Leah + Daniel | Photo Booth | Charlotte Wedding Photography

We absolutely love it when couples decide to have a photo booth! It is so much fun for everyone involved – family, friends, and the photographers! :-) I was excited to see people of all ages having a blast! Can’t wait to see the Christmas cards from Leah + Daniel with their cute Santa hat photos!

Engagement | Hamilton + Matt | Wilmington NC

Hamilton and Matt met 11 years ago in college at UNC-Wilmington. When Hamilton contacted us about their engagement session she asked if we would be willing to go to Wilmington for a weekend to do their engagement photos. And I am so, so glad she asked! It was an amazing weekend with beautiful weather (but COLD water!!). It was the perfect place to start documenting their marriage commitment. <3

Meghan + Jason | Charlotte Wedding Photography

When we met Meghan and Jason about a year ago, we knew their wedding would be all about love, family, and friends. They are both “real” people, down-to-earth, and didn’t get caught up and overwhelmed by the intricacies of wedding planning. They wanted to celebrate the beginning of their life together with a big party – and the Big Chill was the perfect venue for it – I’ve never seen so many guests dancing their feet off! :-)

Family’s First Baby | Maternity | Charlotte NC

I’ve known Jessica since high school and recently got back in touch with her through work. Jessica and Ryan really wanted to do an outdoor session, and thankfully we had some really mild December weather! My absolute favorite from the session is the first one you see here – such a beautiful momma. <3

Allison + Kevin | Wedding | Charlotte NC

Allison and Kevin were married already when they contacted us about doing their wedding photography. At first, we weren’t sure what to expect – will this just be a reception party, or will there be a ceremony? WELL, this was one of the best, most intimate, beautiful ceremonies we’ve ever experienced – and they were already married! Due to an overseas move, they never had the chance to have an actual wedding. And we were so happy to capture these moments for them.

Winter Rustic | Charlotte Wedding Inspiration

I have been dying to do a winter-themed inspiration shoot.

Yes, I really want to do some other themes too, but there’s something that I love about winter.

So I recently met up with Elizabeth Mundy, owner of Splendor Weddings & Events in Charlotte.  She was really excited to work with me on setting up a winter themed shoot, and we decided to go with a Winter Rustic theme that incorporated lots of browns, greens, silvers, whites, and maple syrup!  That’s right, the guest favors are teeny little bottles of yummy syrup – the taste you associate with winter.  We found a fabulous event space called The Loft at 14th in Concord, NC (just north of Charlotte) that has beautiful wood floors and exposed brick walls.  A local baker, The Sweet Life, supplied the cake, which was the central focus of an amazing dessert bar.  The bar was complete with Hershey’s Kisses, Jordan Almonds, and ROCK CANDY!  I absolutely love rock candy, and its icy features were perfect for our Winter theme.  The guest book consisted of your all-time favorite childhood winter toy – a Flexible Flyer wooden and metal sled!  We hope you enjoy!

Lauren + Van | Charlotte NC Engagement Photos

I was excited for Lauren + Van’s wedding journey from the first day I met them.  You can tell just by the way they look at each other that they are deeply in love.  It was no different when I showed up at Morning Glory Farm to do their engagement photos.  They’ll be getting married at this venue on October 18, 2014 (the day after my own 5 year anniversary – love October weddings!) and it is going to be fabulous!
