Ashley’s one request was to get some images of Gabe in his uniform so that is exactly where we started. My challenge for this session was to shoot mostly film so that is exactly what I did. There are only 6 digital images in this post, can you spot them?
Ashley & Gabe, it was so fun getting to know the two of you and chatting about life for hours. You both have the sweetest spirit, perhaps this is why we were granted such gorgeous light and the perfect closing shot of the Henrietta taking an evening cruise on the river to close out the last roll!
Meet Courtney and Daniel, a young and vibrant couple who live here in Charlotte, North Carolina. When I asked what they would like to do for their engagement session, Courtney said “we just hope you can capture how in love we are in the photos”. Done! That response is one of the many reasons I am thankful for my job and for amazing clients like Courtney and Daniel.
We incorporated a few things in their engagement session that make them unique as a couple. Their first date was at a bowling alley in the area, so we thought we’d start there for a few photos. And the comic book idea came from Daniel’s love of superheroes and spending countless hours at the comic book store. Enjoy!
Three ways this sweet couple made my day sunnier:
1. Daniel looks at Courtney like she’s the only person in the room, even in a crowded place. Ahhh, love.
2. I learned about your vampire books obsession and knew we would get along.
3. Courtney walked through that beautiful field in high heels. Go girl!
Brent and I recently spent the afternoon with Cameron and Sutton, who are getting married later this year. The duo first met at a local Raleigh spot called “The Point” a couple of years back and have been entwined ever since. Cameron and Sutton love date nights together, beach trips and spending time with Simon (Sutton’s son).
It was really important to Cameron to include Simon in their session, because he is such a big part of their life. We thought it was a great idea and I love the moments we captured. We can’t wait to capture the wedding day and watch them come together as a family!
Cameron, Sutton and Simon, thanks for being open to share the special moments with us, lay around in the grass and take us to the places that mean the most to you.
Oh and the double decker Chick-fil-a was super cool and we hope we get a chance to try it some time!
Ariana and Juan an awesome duo who enjoy music, their little pup Elliot, and of course being together. Brent and I hit it off with Ariana and Juan from the very first meeting, and when we met up for their engagement session, it was great to see their smiling faces again. We decided to spend the afternoon near downtown Wilmington and finish with a little venture into a nearby park. Nothing beats a gorgeous afternoon with a lovely couple!
Ariana and Juan, three things that Brent and I will remember from your session is your sweetness towards one another, your willingness to try anything, and the tokens that you cherish.
Constance and Kyle met me for their engagement shoot on a crisp morning here in the Queen City. Seeing Constance’s bright yellow shirt let me know right away that we were going to get along famously as yellow is my favorite of all colors! Getting to know clients like this sweet couple is the number one reason I love my job.
Three ways you made my day sunnier:
1. Constance’s amazing yellow shirt.
2. Kyle’s smile when he looks at his bride to be.
3. Jumping on a bridge for a fun photo.
