Welcome to my blog! I'm thrilled to be able to share with you my favorite images from weddings, engagements, maternity, and more! Grab a cup of coffee and get snuggly cuz this blog will give you all the feels!
This colorful NoDa maternity session seriously makes my eyes pop out of my head in the best of ways! It’s so full of color and life! I had a really hard time making any of these photos black and white and it’s easy to see why!
Art and life envelopes you as soon as you enter the tiny community that’s known as NoDa. It’s still considered Charlotte, but where Charlotte is all about architecture, lines, and busy life – NoDa is about color, art, and the quality of life. On every corner, there’s a beautiful artisan shop or a unique twist on your favorite delicacy. Life happens right on the streets of NoDa, people sharing art, music, and love. It’s really not a surprise that the streets of NoDa are just as colorful as the life that’s going on there. Every corner you turn there is a vibrant and beautiful mural. Whole buildings are covered in bright paint. Your neck might get tired of taking it all in!
When I was talking with Bekah about shooting in NoDa I knew it was the perfect fit for their maternity session. Bekah is a fellow photographer and has a keen eye for creative style. So bringing her and her hubs, Jesse, to the bright shining streets of NoDa was a no-brainer! We loved getting to know then and their heart for Jesus. Their love for movies and their new sweet baby girl, Alaska. They’re so excited to meet her and all the color she’ll bring to their life too! What a fitting way to anticipate this new chapter in their life!
Thank you Bekah & Jesse for adventuring through NoDa with us! You were seriously the perfect couple to do it with! Thank you again for trekking all the way from VA to help us out! We love you guys!
This next session is a very special one. Lesley & Russell get the award for FIRST MLP wedding couple to book me in North Carolina! I can remember my first wedding in NY, at that point in my life photography was barely a hobby, but it was enough to hook me! Years later I am so grateful for that first wedding, so I can only imagine what significance Lesley & Russell’s amazing day will have on my NC career. I can’t wait!
It doesn’t hurt that my first wedding clients in NC are incredible people that I hope will become life long friends. After several long emails back and forth to Lesley I felt like I knew her. So our “booking session” was really more like two girlfriends out for coffee. It was then that Lesley really revealed her vision for their whole wedding experience. The 1920s! Yup, each session is 1920s themed! Can you pinch me now please? I’m such a sucker for vintage themed shoots and now I get 3?! Please excuse me while I do my little happy dance before I continue on with this blog. *Cue Charleston music here*
Ok now that I’ve got that out of my system, onto my first session with this amazing couple. Their vintage inspired You + Me session. We traveled down to Hamlet, NC to their restored train depot and museum. It was a lovely afternoon of laughing, photos, and adventure. Neither of us had been there before so it was so much fun finding the best places to shoot. It’s probably my favorite thing about moving, fresh inspiration! I added in a couple of my vintage suit cases and a camera from that time period and VOILA! I present to you Lesley & Russell’s sweet engagement session! Stay tuned for Lesley’s bridals and their BIG DAY which is slated for January 4th. I have so much to look forward to when I get home!
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
