Their first date was fly fishing together - how fun is that? When Olivia reached out and shared her vision for her engagement session, I couldn’t wait! All suited up in their fly fishing gear, they took me to the river and I photographed them in their element. A place that brings them joy, peace, and laughter and where they have shared wonderful memories together. We hiked out of the river just in time to catch a beautiful sunset and a countless number of laughs. Aside from having gorgeous locations for our backdrops, Matthew and Olivia were so much fun to photograph because they are incredibly happy. I wish you two a lifetime of happiness!
My friend Brooke found her person and I couldn’t be happier for her. In the midst of planning her wedding, she squeezed in a day trip to the mountains to splash in the waterfall and celebrate her engagement to Chris. Standing next to a waterfall is thrilling, refreshing, and mesmerizing. There is something about the sound of the water and witnessing such a marvelous creation of nature that rejuvenates the spirit. Combine that with giddy feeling of just getting engagement and there was a whole lot of happy at this portrait session!
Congratulations, Brooke and Chris!
Kasie and Tate are lifelong friends and now planning their Charlotte wedding for later this year. It was a pleasure to spend the evening with these two, photographing this special time - their engagement! The rain postponed a couple of our scheduled session dates, but the third time was the charm. We had the most beautiful weather and sunset on the Blue Ridge Parkway! They were up for an adventure and the views + photographing their sweet love made for a perfect evening together. From a waterfall to a mountain top, Kasie and Tate went all out hiking to the best spots to celebrate their engagement! It's the BIGGEST compliment when Charlotte friends come to visit me in the mountains and let me show them my favorite places.
We had a lovely evening one year out from their wedding to celebrate Danielle and Joey being engaged! The Farmstead venue in Mount Pleasant, North Carolina was a stunning backdrop for celebrating this exciting time for Danielle and Joey. They danced, laughed, snuggled, and shared a gorgeous sunset together. I can't wait for their wedding day in September. Fall is my favorite time of the year, and a wonderful season for weddings!
Charlotte, North Carolina holds a special place in the love story these two share. We made a point to photograph their engagement in meaningful places in Charlotte to capture this special time, and to reflect on the ten years of memories they've made together. They are engaged to be married this month, and they couldn't be more in love!
