Tyler & Brittany | Dixie Dreams | Monroe, NC

Tyler & Brittany | Dixie Dreams | Monroe, NC

For the first time in the history of my business I had a Friday|Saturday back to back wedding, and it may have been the most fun I have had at work in a LONG time.  (and how crazy that both grooms names were Tyler)  So I am calling it the TYLER weekend!  Well no more talk about Friday’s wedding, its time to talk about Saturday’s wedding.

 

Brittany and Tyler are such a fun couple, full of life and laughter, crazy dancing, bridal party antics and more!  The love these two have for each other was so evident in their beautiful ceremony at Dixie Dreams.

 

Thank you both for allowing us to be a part of your special day, and we hope you LOVE your images.

Tyler & McKinney Bullard | Villa Franca Estate | China Grove, NC

I cannot believe Tyler & McKinney’s day has already past, it seemed like just yesterday we were photographing engagement photos!  These two lovebirds had a GORGEOUS ceremony at Landis Baptist Church followed by a sweet (and large) reception at The Villa Franca Estate in China Grove.

The rain decided to make its presence known early on in the day, pushing most of our photography indoors… UNTIL, it COMPLETELY cleared up after the ceremony allowing us to capture some AMAZING images!

James & Kara Engagement | Gem Theatre | Kannapolis, NC

James & Kara Engagement | Gem Theatre | Kannapolis, NC

When I first met with Kara and James and they told me that they had a bit of a car thing…. I knew right then we would be an amazing match to photograph their wedding.  My two favorite things in the world are racing and weddings (well photographing weddings, I actually hate attending)

It is so amazing to see two people whose passions line up in a way that let them truly play out their hobbies/passions/business to the fullest extent.

Here are a few of my favorite captures from their Downtown Kannapolis engagement session.  They were troopers even though the weather did not want to cooperate, bringing early rains and cold weather.

 

Brittany & Tyler Engagement | Frank Liske Park | Harrisburg, NC

Brittany & Tyler Engagement | Frank Liske Park | Harrisburg, NC

Many of my wedding packages include an Engagement session and I absolutely love when a couple chooses a package that does.  Not only does it allow me to get to know them, work with them and allow them to be more comfortable in front of my camera, its also a fantastic time to get to know the couple I am working with.  Yesterdays engagement session was no different.  Brittany and Tyler were a referral from Dixie Dreams wedding venue in Monroe, NC, their wedding is next May and I am so excited to photograph these two.  Even though they were a little bit nervous at first, afraid that they wouldn’t know how to “show their love on camera”  these guys absolutely ROCKED their session!

These photos may be some of my absolute favorite engagement photos yet!

As soon as Tyler told me that their first date happened around 4th of July fireworks and that their engagement happened at Romare Bearden Park on the Knights last game before 4th of July, where he proposed during the firework display, I KNEW I had to incorporate some fireworks as well!

Take a look, hope you enjoy!

 

 

Chris & Ashley Wedding | Romare Bearden Park | Charlotte, NC

Chris & Ashley Wedding | Romare Bearden Park | Charlotte, NC

A wedding on a Thursday, it was an out of the norm request, but I was excited to do something different.  Ashley and Chris put together what I like to call a Pop Up wedding, once they were ready they made the trek a couple of blocks from the hotel to a nice area in Romare Bearden park, a ceremony was performed with only immediate family and a couple of friends (one via facetime) It was beautiful, it was simple, and it was entirely about their families becoming one.

Although, we couldn’t appear at the park without a quick stop at Ashley’s favorite coffee shop… STARBUCKS.

 

Here are a few of my favorites from their special day.

 

Thomas & Katherine | Villa Franca Estate | China Grove, NC

Thomas & Katherine | Villa Franca Estate | China Grove, NC

The Villa Franca Estate is a BEAUTIFUL venue located in China Grove, NC (just 40 minutes north east of Charlotte).  It features a heart shaped ceremony location, a treed entry way, beautiful 1869 Home that is beautifully painted for photos, as well as a gorgeous fully draped tent area for the reception.  Katherine and Thomas “Taz”  were married on September 10, 2017 in a beautiful ceremony.  The weather was fantastic although they had a few friends who were stuck in Florida due to hurricane Irma.

Their love for each other was evident from the first look to the last dance and everything in between.  A fantastic couple to work with and an even more welcoming family.

Thomas & Katherine | Engagement Photos | Jetton Park, NC

Thomas & Katherine | Engagement Photos | Jetton Park, NC

There is nothing I love more than capturing the love between two people. With Thomas & Katherine, their love radiated the entire session. Thomas is an avid outdoorsmen and amateur photographer, which makes things fun. It’s always great to have a couple that loves having photos taken. At times, I thought Thomas was reading my mind as he would naturally move into poses that I was about to suggest. Their natural ebb and flow made for a fun session.

 


Shawn & Alison | Byron’s South End | Charlotte, NC

Shawn & Alison | Byron’s South End | Charlotte, NC

Shawn & Alison were married at a gorgeous ceremony on June 30, 2017.  These two were an absolute ball to work with.  Alison was a very laid back, beautiful, and fun bride.  Shawn was full of energy, excitement and had a ton of fun with his photos! Their ceremony was performed by Shawns uncle, who had all of the guests in a fit of laughter, its always great to see family members perform the ceremonies, it allows them to customize it to the couple and you know there will always be some awesome stories.

Matt & Love Niemann | Peninsula Yacht Club | Mooresville, NC

What a great way to start the Memorial Day weekend!  Matt & Love traded vows at the beautiful Peninsula Yacht Club in Mooresville, North Carolina on Friday.  Their wedding consisted of lake front vows, amazing guests, great food, cake and a boat themed wedding!

The day started out in Davidson, NC at the Homestead Suites, where Matt, Love and their attendants got ready.  We then travelled to the Peninsula Yacht Club where we could truly appreciate the amazing weather they had!  The girls finished getting ready and then we did a private first look!  Their love was so evident when we did that first look, both beaming with light, they shared more than a few kisses as they chatted away about their upcoming nuptials.

Take a look below to see their day through my eyes!

Cortney & Jeremy Clements | Langtree Plantation | Mooresville, NC

Cortney & Jeremy Clements | Langtree Plantation | Mooresville, NC

Here I am, blogging for my business!  All thanks to this girl right here Cortney Clements (Dryden), She has been telling me how important blogging is for SEO, and to take control of my media instead of relying on social media pages to reach my audience.  Thanks to all of her amazing knowledge (Y’all she has like 40,000 followers) I am here and ready to go!  What better way to start off than showing off her beautiful wedding!

May 13, 2017

First of all, I have been photographing weddings for over 7 years (time seriously flies by) and I have NEVER been sick for a wedding.  Go figure the morning of Cortney’s wedding I woke up with huge sinus issues and ended up going to Urgent Care.  The tricky thing about being your own boss and photographing weddings is that there is literally no such thing as a sick day!  I do have back up photographers I could contact if something detrimental were to happen but other than that, the show must go on!

Cortney had a BEAUTIFUL wedding at the Langtree Plantation in Mooresville, North Carolina.  It was a beautiful day, with temperatures in the low 70s, an over cast sky which makes for amazing photos and of course a beautiful bride, groom and wedding party.
