Latta Plantation Engagement – Paul & Kirstin

Be prepared to see LOTS of posts coming to the blog in the next few weeks. This time of year for photographers is pretty crazy (of course in the best way possible); but I’m ready to sit down with pots and pots of coffee for the rest of the “fall/winter” season and edit my heart out! If you happen to bump into a photographer in the next few weeks, make sure you give them a hug. This time of year is like tax season for accountants! I have so many heartfelt and happy images/stories to show you, I literally can’t wait. Make sure your a “facebook fan” as I am always updating little sneak peeks of favorite images as I edit. Sometimes I just can’t wait to show the world! Kirstin and Paul met up with me at Latta Plantation in Huntersville as it’s a favorite spot of theirs to hike and explore in the area. We hiked for a couple of miles stopping to take pictures along the way. Have you ever seen a more cuddly couple? I’m off to shoot my final wedding of this season .. feeling so humbled and happy as I go through all of these images I have lined up reflecting on what heartfelt moments and seriously wonderful people I get to know and photograph. More on that later ! Check out some of my cuddly favs from our session together xo

Margaret Lawrence - So beautiful for two beautiful people.

The Farm A Gathering Place Wedding – Mike & Heidi Jo

I’ve been so excited to share this wedding for SO many reasons. I’ve known Heidi Jo for many years now and it’s been such a joy to see her fall head over heels in love with Mike. I have seen them grow both as individuals and together as a couple — I am so thrilled to watch them take on the world together as husband and wife. They have spent much of their relationship long distance and my heart just wants to burst with happy that they get to wake up next to one another, sip coffee and snuggle on the couch, and enjoy being side-by-side daily as a married couple. I’m looking forward to all the adventures, camping trips, wine nights, and mountains hikes together with our husbands (yay!) Enjoy all the bliss and comforts that married life brings. Love you both SO much! A special thanks to Gabrielle for being such a sweet second shooter! Enjoy a look at some of my favorites from the day!!!

Ott Wedding – Charlotte NC

I’ve been looking forward to Mary C & Nick’s wedding day since the first time we sat down to coffee and chatted the night away. I love when personality and personalized details are shown throughout the entire wedding day. As you can see from the MANY detail images below, Mary C’s vision was romantic, vintage, and rustic french chic. It was carried out in such a sweet elegance that matches the pure heart of GOLD that Mary C has. I’m so happy that our paths have continued to cross throughout the years that have brought us to such a wonderful friendship. It’s relationships such as these that continue to make me excited to call this my profession. For it is getting to know my couple’s and their heart that helps me to truly photograph the essence of who they are and the love that they share. I’m so happy that I get to watch Mary C and Nick take on the world together. A special thanks to Julia for second shooting and spending the day with me! Enjoy a glimpse at some favorites from the day xo! Love you both!!
