Lauren & Chad will be getting married really soon, so I thought it was fitting that I post some of their engagement pictures. They had a great idea of cutting out their date using cardboard, then having me take some images of it. I really like the date against the blue sky! NoDa provided the backdrop, so we moved around the area taking advantage of the colorful buildings they have there. I thought the session was really fun and the smiles come through very well. Lauren and Chad are awesome to work with, I can’t wait for their wedding later next month in the mountains! More to come on that!

Ria is so cute, I enjoy every opportunity I can work with her and her parents, truly one of the nicest families I have ever met! I recently met with Ria and her parents at Freedom Park for a celebration of her 1st birthday. We had a number of tasks at hand. First, we wanted to get some great family portraits. Second, we had to have some cool candids of Ria. Finally, the session was topped off with a little smash cake! If you have never heard of this, it is a simple concept. Buy a cake, put it out in front of your 1-year old, then let them do the rest! It makes for some great memories and the photos are awesome.

I really love the bridal session I am posting today. I met up with Marla at Childress Vineyards for her bridal recently. You can see Marla and Chace’s engagement session in the last post and their wedding day images are soon to come! Childress Vineyards is an awesome place for photography, so many elements to work with. There is of course the vineyard, but also the building/venue itself, a pond, etc. The inside is really cool, but we held off shooting inside deciding to save it for the wedding day. Marla’s dress is really nice, I love the way the flowers blend with the vineyards and colors/tones that they have there. I don’t know which one is my favorite from the session, there are so many cool images that I selected some of my favs to display below.

I have been wanting to post these images for some time now. Marla and Chace met up with me in Salisbury for their engagement session. We moved around town, mostly around the Salisbury Train Depot, as well as one of the local parks. Here are some from our session, I love the black & white shots from the session!

Nydia and Justin were married recently at Saratoga Springs. What a fabulous couple and awesome wedding venue. Saratoga Springs is one of the premier wedding venues in the Charlotte area. Although a little outside Charlotte, it is well worth the drive and makes for a great venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions. Nydia and Justin had exceptional weather and they added their own light via their smiles and laughter. Their family and friends came from far and wide to celebrate their day with them. Everyone was so awesome to work with and I spent a good part of my day laughing and smiling right along with them. I love the horse drawn carriage at Saratoga Springs, it adds a unique dimension to the wedding day. Congrats to Nydia and Justin, two of the best clients I have ever had! Here are but a few of my favorites.
