Child photography {Charlotte, NC portrait photographers}

I loved working with the L family for portraits of their gorgeous, sweet little daughters!  With children, I love to let them run and play and capture them as they are…These are the moments you’ll treasure forever.

So, for their session, I loaded up all the fun kid stuff that little girls love to play with: bubbles, balloons, heart shaped confetti… and we ran, and played, climbed on the swingset and just had a great time-I had two sweet new (and very tired) friends by the end of our session.

Vintage love inspiration wedding shoot {The Arbors Events}

I LOVED photographing this sweet teal and pink vintage love inspired wedding session Blush Weddings and Events created at the gorgeous The Arbors Events in Cleveland, NC.  We showcased incredible bridal headpieces from Charlotte’s own Trulu Couture, and the gorgeous bouquet and floral arrangements came from Bella Grace Floral in Cornelius, NC.  The over the top, ridiculously gorgeous cake came from Charlotte cake maker extraordinaire, Gail from Cheesecake Etc.

I think lace and burlap are such a pretty, girly combination for a wedding!  The pink vintage Depression glass plates went perfectly with the theme, and paired wonderfully with the modern teal and pink glassware from Pier One.  Baby’s breath made a soft addition to the tablescape.nc wedding photographers

I love her handmade bouquet–Mimi handcrafted SO many details of her wedding…I was blown away with the DIY craftiness she was up to for the months before her wedding!  If you are interested in being a DIY bride, I would definitely take a moment to check out her blog, which showcases a lot of her wedding crafts, and how to do them!  Check it out here: Mimi’s blog

Bridal portraits inspiration {The Arbors Events} Sarah

Sarah was part of a bridal portrait inspiration session at The Arbors Events {located in Cleveland, NC } a couple months ago to feature some of the absolutely gorgeous headpieces from Trulu Couture.  It was intended to be a ‘cherry blossom’ theme, but nature didn’t cooperate with us, and there wasn’t a single cherry blossom to be found!  However, we rolled with the punches and used the natural beauty of The Arbors as our background {and a gorgeous location it is!}.

I LOVE it when brides and grooms decide to do a ‘first look’, but even when they don’t…it’s so special to get to hold hands and say a prayer together before the ceremony…

Decatur wedding photographer {Old Courthouse on the Square} Amanda and Daniel

Amanda and Daniel held their “classic Old Hollywood” wedding at the Old Courthouse on the Square in Decatur, Georgia.  What a beautiful location!  The huge palladium windows and gleaming white marble made a perfect spot for them to exchange their vows.

I loved everything about this wedding (especially the bride and groom!).  The first time I actually met Amanda in person, she made me cry. Literally.

It started raining about halfway into the four hour drive from Charlotte NC to Young Harris, Georgia, and so of course, I was praying, praying, praying it would be nice out for our engagement session (it wasn’t).  But, when I pulled into the parking lot to meet them, Amanda came and gave me a big hug, and said “I have something for you”.  I was surprised, but when I saw what it was…I literally cried a little.  This amazing talent had painted an oil portrait of my son Jackson, just from seeing a photo I had posted of him on my blog.  What a wonderful and generous person she is, and I’ll always have this special spot in my heart for her!

But, I digress…back to their glamorous, classic Old Hollywood wedding in lovely Decatur.  I believe we left off last time as they were saying their vows…

The whole bridal party was so fun…We were taking a break between groupings, and next thing I know, they come out with laser guns!  Yep, definitely the first wedding I’ve ever photographed with laser guns! ;)

Oh, and the fabulous lady far left? She’s Amanda’s sister, and also intensely talented.  She owns Savoreux Cupcakery and made the gorgeous wedding cake and to-die-for red velvet cupcakes with cinnamon buttercream……Yummy!

Charlotte, NC wedding photographer – desert love shoot

This February, I visited Las Vegas and attended a gorgeous wedding styled shoot by the oh-so-amazing Lauren of Every Last Detail. The light in the desert was phenomenal, the styling was incredible, and the bride and groom were gorgeous!   I can’t wait to get back to Las Vegas and get to spend a little more time photographing in that other-worldly light!
