Featured: The Knot Magazine

When I was engaged, I spent an embarrassing amount of money on wedding magazines....it's true. The NC Knot magazine was one of my favorites, mostly because I loved reading the real wedding stories to learn of new venues and vendors. At the time, becoming a professional wedding photographer wasn't on my radar. Funny how quickly life can change so drastically!

Anyway, when we got word that our work was going to be featured in the spring 2010 issue, I was RIDICULOUSLY excited.

Sorry for the crappy quality - our scanner kind of sucks.

Lauren and Jon's Charlotte wedding featured in the "Just Married" section (thanks again to Amy Martin for second shooting for me!):

Natalie and Matt's Raleigh wedding featured in the "Style Stalker" section:

We were also excited to see we were listed in the "Best of NC Photographers":

Great Day, Goals, and Alyse

Hi friends! Today, I'm feeling great. Mostly because of the weather...the sun is shining bright and the cool wind is beyond refreshing. And I'm sorry, but I've decided that the sound of the tall trees in my backyard blowing is one of the prettiest sounds ever. Puts me in a great mood. :)

Although I didn't blog about my January goals this month, I still wrote them down and I still plan on completing them:


1. Update website and launch new branding (DONE!)

2. Attend Justin and Mary's Charlotte Spread the Love workshop (DONE!)

3. Finalize new business cards with Erica (DONE!)

4. Get our tax information totally organized (bleh)

5. Update our business license w/ new name (bleh)

6. Take pictures of our best friend's new baby (DONE!)

7. Complete ALL 2009 editing (ALMOST there!)


I still have plans to blog my year end review from 2009, as well as my 2010 goals - almost ready!

To close, here's a couple shots I grabbed of wedding planner Alyse Woodward for some new promo pics. If you are in the market for a wedding planner - I can't recommend her ENOUGH! At minimum, you should go check out her blog for lots of wedding planning advice/inspiration.

Everyone have a great week! :)

Dom and Francois - Engaged

It was the late summer/early fall of 2006 that I met Dom. I was newly engaged and had just moved up from Clemson, SC to begin working at Davidson College. Dom was on the student staff in Residence Life - the department that I worked for. As the year went on, the more I got to know her as she often came into my next door co-worker's office to tell us the latest happenings of her social life, as well as tidbits of Francois. And the more I got to know her, the more I liked her. :)

She eventually graduated and went on to medical school in Texas. Around the same time, I left the college to pursue photography full-time. And then, this past summer....I got an email from her telling me that she was engaged to marry Francois and that she wanted Geoff and I to shoot her Baton Rouge, Louisiana wedding in December. And so, we did. :)

Geoff and I flew in two days early so we could shoot their engagement session the day before the wedding in downtown Baton Rouge. Many thanks to Dom's nana and sister for coming along to help with watching Pilot and Putnam (Dom and Francois' pups).

Pilot - their first born. :)

And there's Putnam on the right. Let me tell you, I quickly became infatuated with this animal....he makes the most ridiculous (but adorable) sounds...I guarantee you've never heard a dog make the sounds that Putnam does - he sounded much more like a dinosaur than a dog.

Oh, I LOVE this.

And this would be the moment right after Dom snuck a double wet willy on Francois. Amazing.

Wedding pics coming soon. :)

Charlotte City Club - Trinette and Jason: Married

To our delight, Trinette and Jason were married at the Charlotte City Club. Have I mentioned how much we love the City Club? :)

The ceremony didn't begin until after the sun had set, so Trinette and Jason decided to see each other beforehand for a "First Look" so we could knock all of their pictures out while still having some natural light. Uptown Charlotte was decorated for Christmas, so we chose the gigantic lit up tree for the spot where they saw each other for the first time. :)

I especially loved Trinette's wedding dress from J Majors, makeup by Kymm from Who's the Fairest, and hair by Jorden at Dolce Lusso. She let her hair down for the reception - let me tell you....Trinette has GORGEOUS hair.

I LOVE this image of Trinette.

Flowers by Party Blooms.

We all know how much I love a candy buffet. :)

LOVE this one of Trinette with her dad. :)

Charlotte DJ Company provided the music for the evening.

Congratulations Trinette and Jason!!
