Laura and Joe: Engaged!

Laura and Joe are getting married in just a few short weeks at the Charlotte City Club - we can't wait for their wedding day! These two are SUPER nice and REALLY easy-going. And did I mention how flipping CUTE they are together?? At the beginning of our shoot I told them that the aim of our time together was for them to just have fun and enjoy each other. That's just about all of the direction I had to give them, as they just loved on each other the whole time....I guess it helps when you have a long distance relationship - Joe is from Canada and was in for the weekend. :)

Geoff and I will see you guys soon! Thanks for a great shoot! :)

A very special engagement.

This past Friday afternoon/evening was spent out at Cane Creek Park in Waxhaw helping our new friend Ryan propose to his girlfriend Ashley. As much as we hoped and prayed for a beautiful, sunny day.....we got rain.....all day. Even so, that wasn't going to stop Ryan from asking Ashley to be his wife.

Watch the slideshow at the bottom of this post for a full recap of the proposal!

I adore this shot.

Congratulations Ryan and Ashley!! May God bless your marriage as much as He has for Geoff and I. Thanks for allowing us to be a part of this awesome day!

Featured: Crazy Fancy

Sweet! Run on over to Crazy Fancy to check me out - I was featured on the blog a couple of days ago.

Really, if you are planning a wedding in Charlotte, you should bookmark the site on your computer. It's updated quite frequently as is really helpful to get reviews about different CLT vendors. I wish I would have had it as a resource when I got married!

Erika and Brad: Married - Centenary United Methodist Church

Oh boy - this is gonna be a long one! I mean a SERIOUSLY long post. Ridiculously long, in fact. Oh well, I guess I'm making up for not posting for five days!

Erika and Brad's wedding day was SO BEAUTIFUL and I enjoyed shooting every second of it. I'm a big sucker for details, so I was in heaven!

They were married in Winston-Salem at the Centenary United Methodist Church and the reception was held at Revolution Mill Studios in Greensboro. And let me tell you - both venues were AWESOME. Seriously.

My new favorite ring shot.


lovin' this shot of erika as the final touches get put on her hair - so cute.

The flowers were done by Central Floral Gardens.

One of my favorite parts of a wedding day to shoot is actually before the wedding even starts. I love shooting all of the "getting ready" details. It's like a fun challenge to come up with new and creative shots for the rings, accessories, dress, etc. I was VERY excited to find this pillow in the hotel room that conveniently was embroidered with "Sweet Dreams".

Gorgeous, right?!

The parasols added a very fun and cute touch.


Aw yes...the infamous hot guy shot.

Ya'll...let me tell you something about this church....it was PHENOMENAL. Super dark inside (which made it tricky to shoot), but SO dramatic.

Enter Erika and Brad's hard work at all of the matching wedding details.

Geoff always gets the coolest shots - I love it that he sees things that I never would when we shoot.

We COULD NOT decide between one of the two next shots for the blog post. Dilemma fixed - post both.....

My shot:

Geoff's shot:


Erika and Brad's wedding was the first that we started experimenting with some new and fun lighting - was a great accent to their first dance!

Okay - how cool is their cake? VERY cool. But not even HALF as cool as the groom's cake below!

Are you serious? This is AWESOME. Everyone loved it.....especially when they cut the cake to the old school mario brothers song.

Both cakes were done by For Goodness Cakes (based out of Atlanta, GA).

Told you there was a ton of details!

We have many cool dance shots from this wedding, but THIS.....well, this is just about the coolest I've seen. Good catch, Geoff!

Congrats Erika and Brad!!!!! :)))) Your wedding was awesome!
