uptown engagements | jonathon + jennifer

So excited to finally share Jennifer and Jonathan’s lovely uptown engagement session today, on their wedding day! Their wedding is taking place uptown with a reception at the Mint Museum, so for their engagement session, we shot around the city that inspired the setting for their wedding. The sun setting through the skyscrapers and around the streets was absolutely beautiful and we were absolutely thrilled with how the images turned out. Jennifer and Jonathan were great to work with, too! They were so relaxed with us and with each other- always great qualities that tend to transpire into beautiful images. Enjoy a few of our favorites from Jennifer and Jonathan’s engagement session.

These photos are a series we did at the request of Charlotte Wedding Magazine back in November for their January/March 2013 issue! Now that the issue is off the shelf we can finally share them- so excited! The CWM did an 8-page spread of 8 of the photos from this shoot, so most of the images here are extras that were not selected for the feature. Brian just had a total blast in the studio- he was totally in his element!

The images look fantastic and ever better in print ; ) Special thanks to our gorgeous model, Lindsay Worsham, and to Hayden Olivia Bridal, The Lily Rose, Mecklenburg Bridal Gallery, and New York Bride & Groom for supplying the fabulous gowns for this shoot! (See captions for jewelry vendors. See the spread in Charlotte Wedding Magazine Jan/Mar 2013 for all designer and price info)

morning glory farms wedding | clint + brittany

We had so much fun capturing Brittany and Clint’s wedding! Brittany and Clint of Discover Love Studios already had so much experience as a photographer and videographer in the wedding industry that they knew how to assemble an amazing team of vendors! We thoroughly enjoyed working with every single one of their vendors and loved all of the little details they infused throughout their day that really brought everything together! With her background in graphic design, Brittany actually designed all of their stationary- check out the detail shots of her work below! Enjoy a bunch of our favorites from Clint and Brittany’s wedding, and see a complete list of their vendors at the bottom of the post!
