JEFF & BETH

Jeff and Beth Foundation for the carolina's Charlotte NC Wedding

This was definitely a really sweet wedding for me personally to photograph. It pulled on my heart strings when I saw the way Jeff held Beth’s hand so close and embraced her hands with both of his hands. I love it when a groom can’t help but cry over his bride. It really makes me so happy. True love is hard to find when it comes to photographing weddings, surprisingly. Jeff really looked at Beth with such adoring eyes, and I love, love, love it. I felt like this wasn’t just another day for these two, it held high value in their hearts.

This was my first Jewish wedding, and I enjoyed things being a little different. It definitely made it wonderful. Jeff and Beth found me in the Charlotte Wedding Magazine, and I was so excited when they contacted me for a skype call from NYC. I believe we really connected and I loved making friends with them throughout the entire process.

Thank you Julia Laible for being an amazing second shooter on this one, and to my handsome gorgeous husband for holding my light sticks and all my stuff. <3

I had a really hard time picking my favorites from this day, but hopefully I did good.

Congrats Jeff and Beth! Y’all are so beautiful, and I’m so happy you picked me to shoot your wedding.

Alex & Brittany

Alex & Brittany Wedding Brakefield at Riverwalk Rock Hill, South Carolina

When a girl from Rock Hill, SC meets a Costa Rican in Shanghai, China….. well it’s pretty awesome story. I think the story goes something like, he asked her to dance with him at a bar in Shanghai and then the rest is history.

I was so excited to photograph these two, they are a super beautiful couple and they took time getting to know me and my family. Twice they came over (with Brittany’s parents) to my place and enjoyed playing with my children while we chatted about their plans for the day. Through diapers, aches, and boo boo’s they hung in there as my kids screamed around the house. (I couldn’t believe that they wanted to come to my house! I warned them! haha!)

They are both amazing dancer’s and the salsa dancing at the wedding was my favorite part of the day. These people can dance…. goodness!

I might have danced a little too. ;)

The wedding venue is Brakefield at Riverwalk in Rock Hill, SC

Congrats Alex and Brittany, thank you so much for letting me and Brandon photograph your day!

Kevin and Lindsay’s Wedding Weekend, Part 1

IMG_2033

So, where do I start? Wow! I mean… look above… yep.

I met Lindsay about 5 years ago. She was one of the managers that I worked with at Anthropologie. Never would I have dreamed that years later I would be shooting her magical weekend at “The Inn at Palmetto Bluff.” When she wrote me and told me that they wanted to book me, I was extremely excited. We all sat down and Skyped together. (They live in Seattle, but are real-life Carolinians.) I immediately knew this weekend would be so incredible.

Their story in a nut shell is that Lindsay caught Kevin’s eye when she was working at a deli that he went to every day across the street from his work. He finally got the nerve to ask her out… and the rest is pretty much sweetness.

So to start the weekend off right, I showed up at the venue that they had booked (The Inn at Palmetto Bluff) and my assistant and I pretty much drove around with our jaws dropped. UN-FREAKIN-REAL! So, so so magical.

Back in the winter, Lindsay and Kevin planned a trip to Charlotte where I was supposed to do an engagement session. Well… their time was limited and they ended up not being able to do it. Thankfully, it worked out so that I could take a few portraits of them after their rehearsal leading up to their rehearsal dinner.

Their outfits were to die for, their smiles and laughs made this short session a breeze… oh, and the trees… goodness.

Their rehearsal dinner was also on the property of their venue, and they had a super fun, sassy southern dinner. Completely different than their wedding day.

So, here is the first part of an incredible weekend. Enjoy!
