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!

Ashley & Ron Malec Wedding | Charles Mack Citizen Center | Mooresville, NC

Ashley & Ron Malec Wedding | Charles Mack Citizen Center | Mooresville, NC

 

Growing up as a race car driver, moving into the NASCAR photography realm, I always love the chance to photograph fellow racing enthusiasts.  However, this couple just takes it up a notch.  Not only is Ashley one of the sweetest girls I have ever met, she is also a mechanic in NASCAR, Ron too is involved in NASCAR as the long running car chief for 7 time champion Jimmie Johnson.  Talk about a power couple!  These two were so sweet and easy going and you could just feel their love radiating from the second they saw each other.

Ashley spent her time physically building many of items at her wedding, she laid out the entire design, tables and EVERY little detail was enacted and comisioned by her.  It was easily one of the most beautifully decorated weddings I have ever seen!

 

Congratulations and I wish you YEARS of luck in the future!

Tyler & McKinney | Gem Theatre | Kannapolis, NC

Tyler & McKinney | Gem Theatre | Kannapolis, NC

The Gem Theatre has been a popular photo spot these last few weeks!  It was an absolute blast to photograph Tyler & McKinney’s Engagement Session there on Tuesday.  Another Car loving couple, Tyler is an over the wall crew member for Stewart Haas Racing, and McKinney is along for the car loving ride!

Take a look below to see a sneak peek of their amazing pictures!

 

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.

Josh & Sarah | Dixie Dreams | Monroe, NC

Josh & Sarah | Dixie Dreams | Monroe, NC

This past wedding was a special one,  not only do we love shooting at Dixie Dreams, but this wedding held a little more importance because one of my absolute favorite people Jessica Deese Tucker, who by the way is a FANTASTIC coordinator, was playing double duty.  Not only was she planning/coordinating the wedding, but it was also her brother Josh’s wedding day, making it that much more important.

Saturday was my first time meeting the lovely couple and their beautiful daughter Emery.  These two have been together since 7th or 8th grade and their connection was just so obvious.  I am so happy that they asked me to capture their special day!  Below are some of my favorite images from their day!  Congratulations on your family of 3!
