Jetton Park has been a very popular spot with my couples lately. I can't blame them with the sandy beach and lake right on the edges of the woods! Andrew, Leia, and I walked around the area on Sunday and spent a lot of time on the sun-bathed beach. The spring lighting was just gorgeous! I love that the light stays around longer now and can't wait for a lot more sessions coming up this wedding season!
On Friday, we were anticipating rain and clouds for Kylie & John's session on Saturday. When we got to Anne Springs Greenway, the sun was out and it was beautiful! I am so glad the weather turned out perfect because it matched Kylie & John perfectly. I had so much fun watching them laugh and be in love during their session! An added bonus: the peach blossoms were in full bloom!
I held my first photography workshop last weekend and I had a blast! It was a small group but I think that allowed us to spend time on specific questions. I wanted to give my workshop attendees lots of practical shooting time so they could execute what we had talked about. Ashley & Josh, whose wedding I shot a year ago, agreed to be my models! It was overcast on their wedding day and apparently the weather wanted to celebrate that on their anniversary too!
*the last two photos were taken by Amanda Schultz, one of my workshop attendees! :)
If you're interested in attending a workshop led by me, send me an email! :)
Guys, I love when my couples choose a location that is unique and special to them! This is Zack's grandparent's home in Fort Mill. He grew up running around and climbing the huge oak trees and they had their engagement party here. I was so excited when they told me that that is where they wanted to do their session! Enjoy looking at some moments we captured tonight at the house.
If any of you know me then you know how obsessed I am with La La Land! I can't stop listening to the music, dancing through my kitchen, and dreaming of the incredible cinematography. I love photographing things that inspire me so I put together a small session inspired by the movie! I ordered this dress from Modcloth. Then I recruited one of my adorable previous wedding couples and we set off to a parking garage in the city of Charlotte, our own local version of La La Land.
P.S. I highly recommend listening to this while you scroll :)
We drove out to Wilkesboro, NC for Sarah and Patrick's engagement session. Patrick previously worked here at Camp Harrison and knew all the great places for us to explore! We had cats follow us around in the barn, went to visit the horses, explored down by the lake, and climbed hills. It was a gorgeous night with a slight breeze and Sarah and Patrick were adorably in love!
The Riverwalk at Rock Hill is one of my favorite places to shoot. You can wander along trails by the water, explore the trees, or run through open fields. Callie, Aj, and I walked the main trail and stopped off for photos whenever my eye caught something lovely. We had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful golden hour!
Triscia and Stephen love the feel of downtown Waxhaw and it is where Stephen proposed! We made our way there for their engagement session. We barely missed the rain that afternoon but a rainy day session can be cozy and intimate!
