Lauren and Colin are so fun. We spent their engagement session running around Duke Gardens and discovering endless gorgeous places to shoot. I typically post a combination of color and black and white images, but between the beautiful color that the garden provided and nice reflection from a recent down pour, the color images won out every time. I could shoot there again and again and never go back to the same spot twice. Love it! Lauren and Colin were a breeze to shoot. They are both such genuine people and I think that shows so well in these images.

Enjoy these two!

The Friedrich family is one of my favorites. Matt and I met them 3 years ago in our childbirth class as we prepared for Oli to come along, and as they were preparing for their sweet girl, Lily. Now 3 years later, they their second Adam has turned 1 year old and so they wanted to schedule a family shoot to document this special time. This family is not just a client but friends, and I have loved seeing their family grow through the years. You may even recognize them since I shot Lily’s newborn and 1 year session as well as Adam’s newborn session. I love this session because it shows everyone’s individual personality, as well as how fun they are as a family. You just can’t help but smile after looking at these images.

Misty and Shane’s reception felt like a rockstar party. And it was awesome. Their friends are family love to have a great time and we had a good time right along with them. Their reception was held at Vivice Charlotte with a perfect view of the Charlotte Skyline. The balcony was lit by the city lights, it was so beautiful. We also got the opportunity for more portraits with these two atop a parking deck with another perfect city view. I loved everything about this uptown reception.

Enjoy!

Misty and Shane’s wedding was a amazing day. These two are some of the nicest people I have ever met and it really makes me sad that their wedding is over and I won’t be seeing them regularly anymore. They are just that great. You may remember their engagement session when you see their very unique cats again. Had to get these two in a few shots! Misty and Shane’s ceremony was held at St. Mary’s Chapel with a very special group of family and friends. And although these special people were involved in the wedding in various ways, these two elected not to have bridesmaids and groomsmen. This gave us tons of time for some really intimate shots of the bride and groom in a couple different locations. I loved having the amount of time with them that we did and although having a wedding party is fun, this was a nice breath of fresh air!

Both Misty and Shane are incredibly stylish people and their elegant uptown wedding was that and more. You will see more of this tomorrow when I post their uptown Vivace Charlotte wedding reception, so be sure to stay tuned!

These were the looks on Misty’s loved one’s faces when they saw her. She was truly a stunning bride.

Misty was very close to her daddy and this was such a special way to remember him as she walked down the aisle.

Charlotte Newborn Photography - image - 0001One of my favorite things about photographing weddings is that I am usually able to follow my couples well into the days when their family grows from 2 to 3, to 4 to 5…. This just recently happened for Jessica & Mitch as they have just welcomed their sweet baby, Everly into the world. Everly was a perfect angel for our shoot as I hope she continues to be for Jess & Mitch, hehe. Enjoy these portraits of some of my favorite people. Congrats, Hight family!

Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0014 (1)Kathleen and Brandon’s reception was a BLAST. The only thing that topped that (for me!) was the gorgeous light we had for bride and groom portraits and the fact that K&B wanted to come out during sundown for more beautiful portraits by the rose bushes in full bloom. It really was so much fun and I think these images show that so well. Some of my favorite reception images ever.

Congrats, Kathleen and Brandon! You both are so great to work with. Please keep in touch! :):)Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0015 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0016 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0017 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0018 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0019 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0020 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0021 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0022 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0023 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0024 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0025 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0026 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0027 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0028 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0029 (1) Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0030 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0031 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0032 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0033 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0034 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0035 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0036 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0037 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0038 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0039 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0040 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0041 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0042 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0043 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0044 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0045 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0046 Charlotte Wedding Photography - Kathleen & Brandon0047

Kathleen and Brandon are such a sweet couple and their wedding day was equally as sweet. When I arrived it was raining and it didn’t stop until about 15 minutes before the ceremony. So Kathleen and Brandon’s venue,  Alexander Homestead, did everything they could to move the wedding back outdoors in just a matter of minutes. They even had high-powered blowers going to dry off chairs. Everything went off without even a hiccup and the overcast skies made for some gorgeous portraits. All in all, a wonderful day! Stay tuned tomorrow for Part II of this lovely wedding and some gorgeous portraits of the bride and groom. A full list of vendors is location at the bottom of this post!

Enjoy!
