Julie's Bridals

This past Saturday, Julie and Jason were married. It was SUPER hot, but still a beautiful day.

I was BEYOND psyched when Julie emailed me to tell me she wanted to fit in a bridal portrait before her wedding day. I could take pictures of Julie all day, every day.

Many thanks to Julie and her family for inviting us to their farm in Hickory for the session - AND, for feeding us ridiculous good BBQ afterward! :)

Love this one in front of her grandpa's old workshop. :)

Can't hardly wait to show their wedding pics!!!

Megan and Tate - Married - Charlotte Wedding Photographer

When Geoff and I arrived to the church where Megan and Tate were to be married, it was pouring. I mean, POURING down rain. So much rain that we had to back the car up to the church doors to bring our equipment inside. When I first saw Megan, she was calm, cool, and collected - no rain was going to phase her wedding day. :)

Within 15 minutes of unpacking our gear, we were greeted by the amazing Scott Steward of SFS Productions. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Scott is one of my favorite wedding videographers in Charlotte...he is one of the best...for real.

About 45 minutes before the ceremony began, to my COMPLETE delight, the buckets of rain had subsided - which allowed Geoff to take the guys and me to take the girls outside for a few quick shots. And MAJOR PROPS go out to Megan, Tate, and their bridal party for bearing the insane HEAT that followed once we got to Firethorne Country Club for more pictures before the reception. Even in May, it was REALLLLY warm.

Megan wore two pairs of shoes for her wedding day....exhibit A - her ceremony shoes.

And exhibit B - she rocked these pink one's for the reception.

Can I just say how OBSESSED I was with her bouquet? I LOVE peonies....like, a lot. When I saw Megan's flowers (done by The Flower Diva), my jaw dropped.

Hello, Tate!

LOVE this. oh yes.

Actually, I LOVE all of these.

You have no idea how difficult it was to get this shot - it took many, many tries....and a lot of patience, which I struggled with. :/ Lucky for me, I have an incredible husband who IS patient....even when I'm not.

The cake tasted REALLY REALLY REALLY good - props to Decadent Designs.

Favorite toasting shot ever.

Z Brothers DJ's rocked it out....and man, did Megan and Tate's guests DANCE!

Love this moment. :)

Congratulations Megan and Tate - many blessings for your new life together! It has been a pleasure to be your photographers. :))))

Brooke and Matt - Married: Charlotte, NC Wedding Photographer

For all of the outside ceremonies we've been shooting lately, we've really been blessed with some great weather. Hot, yes. Humid, for sure. But, at least it's been dry! Brooke and Matt were married on a gorgeous day in May out in Waxhaw at the Manor House. It was our first time shooting there and we hope it won't be our last - it really is a pretty piece of property. Plus, Brooke told me they took care of the catering, flowers, tent, rentals and horse and carriage....full package!

And THIS, my friends, is a new favorite shoe shot. :)

Now, I'm sure I've made mention of this before on my blog, but it must be said again. Future brides - I urge you to thoughtfully plan out where you'll be putting on your dress - I've shot in some GORGEOUS places for this.....and some just the opposite. Truly, it does make all the difference to have a decent size room with the ability for natural light to come in. Pretty furniture and nice wall color/carpet never hurt anyone either. :)

As it turns out, the Manor House has one of the prettiest getting ready rooms I've seen. :)

Dang girl - you are SOOOO pretty!

Brooke's bridesmaids were awesome - super helpful, nice and a lot of fun. Plus, they are gorgeous.

I'm loving these next two shots Geoff got of Matt. You can tell that he is like THE nicest guy...huh?

This one is an all time favorite portrait. For real.

SCORE. There was a candy buffet. And it was amazing. I NEVER, EVER get tired of candy buffet's at a reception - I am forever indebted to whoever invented the concept of a candy buffet.

Love this moment.

Congratulations Matt and Brooke! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together! :)
