Charlotte Wedding Magazine – Fall Bridal Gown Fashion Feature

   I was beyond thrilled when I heard from Charlotte Wedding magazine, asking if I’d like to shoot their fall fashion spread.  Me?  Photograph gorgeous wedding gowns and jewelry in the super cool McColl Center for Visual Art??? Hmmm…lemme think…YES! 

Our day began around 6 am with beautification of our already gorgeous bridal model, and me oohing and ahhing over the rack of gorgeous bridal gowns collected from the fantastic bridal salons in and around Charlotte.  (there may have been a little planning to talk my husband into marrying me again so I could get a new wedding gown going on too…)

We had such a fabulous team putting this together: Laurel Benedum from Charlotte Wedding styled each look, Jane Fields from Charlotte wedding produced the shoot, and the amazing Rebekah McCann did a fantastic job on all the hair and makeup for our beautiful model!

Our first shoot began with a gorgeous Anna Maier Monet gown from Hayden Olivia on the rooftop of the McColl Center.

The next gown is from one of my favorite designers, Justin Alexander.  New York Bride and Groom graciously loaned us this gorgeous wedding dress, and the fab veil came from one of my absolute favorite people in the wedding industry, Aubre from Aubre’s Bridal!

Published {Wedding at The Arbors} Carolina Bride Magazine

Laura and Ke’s wedding at The Arbors was one of the most interesting and fun I’ve had the pleasure to photograph.  From the black and white wedding dress, to the handmade paper flowers for the bouquets and centerpieces, the handmade leather earrings for the bridesmaids, and the rockin’ 80’s hair metal at the reception, this wedding was like no other.  I love it when brides and grooms make their wedding all about THEM and who they are as a couple… Congratulations, Laura and Ke, you made it happen!

Not only are Laura and Ke featured in the newest issue of Carolina Bride magazine, they also made it into the blog, so please go check it out!

Published {Baby Lifestyles} Beach maternity session

Baby Lifestyles has featured Holly and Rusty’s oceanside maternity portrait session… I love finding my work featured on other blogs and publications!  This one was from this past summer; we had gone to North Myrtle Beach to document Holly’s first pregnancy, and got some gorgeous portraits of this gorgeous family.

Those of you who follow my blog may remember when I first posted this family, that they had -only days after this portrait session- found out that Holly has a very rare form of leukemia, but they were unable to do any further testing to determine how far along it was.  Thankfully, it is still confined to her bone marrow, and she won’t need any treatments for the time being.

If you haven’t read her story, you can find everything in her own words here, on her Caringbridge page.

Published {Chetola Resort, Blowing Rock wedding} Wedding Row Charlotte

I love Wedding Row Charlotte!  They are such a great resource for Queen City wedding inspirations and vendors, and Alicia, the editor, is super-duper sweet!

I’m always excited when they decide to publish anything from me, and I was thrilled when they published Ligia and Michael’s charming outdoor wedding, held lakeside at the Chetola Resort in Blowing Rock, NC. {I’m a sucker for the mountains, and Blowing Rock is one of my fave places to be!}

How can you not love a wedding with paddleboats, ping pong tables (with personalized ping pong balls), and a steel drummer??? Check it out!

Engagement session {Mimi and Ben} Matthews, NC

I can’t help but mention how much it warms my heart to be published…whether on a blog, or in a magazine, but wow… when one of my clients says some lovely stuff about me and I just find it out of the blue… Super bonus! ;)

I photographed the 0h-so-sweet and terribly hilarious Mimi and Ben recently for their engagement session… Oh, and did I mention that Mimi is ridiculously talented?? She made the super cute GIANT Scrabble tiles for their engagement session, and has TONS of swoon-worthy (is that a word?) DIY details planned for her wedding next year.

So, here’s her super sweet blog post:
