A Graylyn Estate Wedding | Charlotte Wedding Photographer | Graylyn Estate Wedding Photographer

When we first met Julia + Garrett, we knew their wedding would be special. One of the first things Julia told us was how much they loved color and that it would be everywhere on their wedding day. One of the biggest trends right now in weddings is actually pastels and neutral color schemes which we love, but Julia + Garrett have shown us just how incredibly beautiful splashes of color can be on a wedding day. From the hand painted cake (done by Julia’s mom!) to Julia’s Gucci shoes to the stunning bridal bouquet, this wedding was truly a work of art. We loved being part of it and can’t wait for you to see the images we captured!

A Foundation for the Carolinas Wedding | Charlotte Wedding Photographer

Courtney + Aaron are married! Beyond being a beautiful day, this was truly one of the sweetest celebrations we’ve been a part of.  Aaron + Courtney are two of the most caring, genuine people, and it’s easy to see that their friends and family share those characteristics as well.  From the speeches to the first look with Courtney’s dad, we were tearing up right there along with everyone else.  These two just radiate joy, and I’m pretty sure you’ll see that in the photos below. There’s even a (very) messy cheers shot from the reception that is a once-in-a-lifetime catch.  It was a great day, and we wish Courtney + Aaron all the best!

A Duke Mansion Wedding | Charlotte Wedding Photographer

Congratulations, Mr. + Mrs. Easton! We wish you so much happiness in the years to come!

We’ve been looking forward to this session for 28 years– or at least Rachel has because it means her little brother is getting married! Jason + Mimi are getting married this winter in Greenville, SC, and we are thrilled (and a little out of practice) to be wedding guests at an event this year!

Mimi + Jason have been friends for a couple years with pretty much all of their friends rooting for them to get together. Mimi is the perfect girl for Jason, and we couldn’t be more happy to welcome her to our (crazy) family!

Carmel Country Club Bridal Portraits | Charlotte Wedding Photographer

Maribeth + Stuart were married this past weekend at Myers Park Methodist Church followed by a reception at Carmel Country Club which is where we took her bridals several weeks ago. We LOVE doing bridals, but it’s always the HARDEST to sit on the images until after the wedding. But we made it!  And the image below may just be one of my (Rachel) favorite images of 2017.  So, check out Maribeth’s bridals, and stay tuned for their wedding post because it’s coming soon!
