While I was out in San Francisco with my photographer friend Julia, she set up an engagement session with this gorgeous couple just as the sun was setting on the beautiful California beach.
Mercedes and Curtis were married in the gorgeous St. Marks church in Huntersville, and had their reception at the Peninsula Club.
The Peninsula Club (in Cornelius, NC) has so many beautiful backdrop for photography. We took a few minutes once the reception had gotten going to take a few romantic portraits around the grounds and the golf course.

Meredith has been around horses her entire life. Her parents raised Friesan horses on their farm in Lake Wylie, SC, up until the past year. We did a quick bridal portrait session at their farm with Meredith’s prized stallion, Quixote, before they sold the farm.
I had no idea it was even possible, but when Meredith told me she could get Quixote to sit on command, I had to see it. Sure enough, we went into the training barn, and Quixote sat just like a dog. It was pretty cool, so I included a shot of it even though Meredith wasn’t in her bridal gown anymore.

Angie and Chris had an elegant, rainy day wedding at Ritz Carlton, uptown Charlotte, NC. A few weeks before, we got together for a quick engagement session near their home in Fourth Ward.
I love how engagement portrait sessions let you get to know a little bit more about a couple and how they behave in front of the camera-Chris was a tiny bit camera shy at first, but he was a pro by the wedding day.
Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens is one of my very favorite local wedding venues. I adore photographing on the grounds there, and recently did a little wedding gown fashion editorial for my studio magazine.
Big thanks to Sissy Duncan (Simply Beautiful Artistry by Sissy Duncan) for the wonderful hair and makeup, and Poffie Girls and Ladies of Lineage allowing us to use their gorgeous wedding dresses!

Last October, I headed out of town with my photographer friend Julia to take a photography workshop (Every Wedding is an Adventure). Julia had been in contact with a lovely couple from around San Francisco, and set up an engagement session with them at one of the coolest places I’ve seen-Point Reyes National Park. The fog there added great atmosphere to the images. I can’t wait to go back!

Meredith and William-I love these guys. Several years ago, I also photographed Meredith sisters’ wedding. It was a gorgeous, lakeside affair in her family’s backyard-casual and fun. I know this family knows how to throw a party!
Meredith loves horses, and has her own beautiful stallion (Quixote). It was only natural for her to have her engagement portraits with William at another family property, a horse farm near Chester, SC.
