published | bridal fashion shoot for charlotte wedding magazine

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)

mcgill rose garden bride | meagan

We are so excited to finally be able to share Meagan’s bridal portraits with the world on our blog tonight! She is safely down the aisle and married to her prince, Jim. For her bridal session we actually did a few studio shots at our studio-office in NoDa before heading down the street to a venue we’d been dying to shoot at: McGill Rose Garden! Since we were shooting her bridals in May, everything was in bloom and the entire garden was beyond gorgeous. Meagan’s beautiful gown from J. Majors’ Bridal Boutique was accented perfectly by the romantic garden setting and Meagan looked absolutely picturesque surrounded by all of the spring blooms! And with Meagan having been a dancer all her life, she was the portrait of grace in her gown. Enjoy a few of our favorites from Meagan’s McGill Rose Garden bridal session!

ballantyne country club bride | caitlin

We’re loving sweet Caitlin’s classic bridal images from before her May wedding, taken at the Ballantyne Country Club! Caitlin incorporated a very unique element, the dress itself! Caitlin wore her grandmother’s wedding dress on her big day and wanted elegant bridal images to capture the beautiful and sentimental facets of the gown. The dress was absolutely perfect on her 🙂 She looks like a disney princess in it! We even recreated her grandmother’s bridal portrait pose on the stairs inside Ballantyne’s gorgeous main hall. We also loved Caitlin’s bouquet of blush peonies and anemones with navy centers incorporated her wedding-colors beautifully. Enjoy a few of our favorites from Caitlin’s bridal portraits.
