We were super excited to hear that Lee Ann and Miguel were to be featured in the current issue of Carolina Bride magazine. And when we saw the layout, my jaw dropped. I love it. :)

Help Find Frank a Good Home!

So, here's the deal. Last night on our way home from an engagement session in NoDa, we spotted a stray dog running around near Davidson Street and I-277. Geoff and I will always try our best to catch a stray we see running around, but have never been successful in actually catching a dog. Last night, however, we were able to get ahold of him and put him in the back of our car.

From there, we took him to our vet to see if he was micro-chipped...no dice. Our options on a Sunday night were few and far between -we didn't want to hand him over to Animal Control, so we decided to have him vaccinated, board him for the night at the vet and then try to get him hooked up with a no-kill shelter/rescue group today. So far, we haven't had any luck. Project Halo seemed like our best bet, but they are already full. Now, I'm getting desperate for him and want for him to find a safe place to stay temporarily until he can be adopted or find him a permanent home now.

We've been calling him Frank (as in, Frank the Tank). Frank is the SWEETEST boy - he smiles a lot and sits and lays down when you prompt him to. The vet gave him a physical last night - they said he seems to be in good physical health - weighing in at 62 pounds.

If anyone is interested in him, please email me at Cheyenne.Schultz@gmail.com - if we don't already know you, we'll ask that references are provided. Thanks so much!

Katie and Kevin - Engagement Session - Charlotte Wedding Photographer

I am a klutz. It's true. I've always been amazed at the wedding photographers who can shoot with two camera bodies at the same time - one to shoot, and the other strapped around their shoulder ...switching back and forth when they prefer to use the other lens. I have a hard enough time staying on my own two feet while shooting (or walking for that matter), so the former scenario is just not possible.

When I fell down a grass hill near the end of their engagement session, Katie and Kevin saw first hand how clumsy I can be. And I'm not talking about a little trip.....I mean I FELL DOWN THE HILL....as in slipped, landed on my butt, and slid down. It was a moment in my life that my "cool factor" was off the charts. My mother always told me she should have named me Grace. :/

Anyway, please enjoy the engagement pictures of the ever-cute Katie and Kevin. :)

I so love this. It's a favorite. :)

Dana and Adam - Engaged - Charlotte Wedding Photographer

Seeing as they went out for ice cream for their first date (and from what I've been told, they both LOVE ice cream), I thought it only fitting to kick off Dana and Adam's engagement session with some good old Ben & Jerry's. Perhaps it was a little messy...but worth it if you ask me. :)


They also brought along their sweet boy, Cooper!

Can't wait for next June to shoot the wedding of this sweet couple. :)
