When we were brainstorming a name for our photography business almost 7 years ago now, we chose Project:Life because it truly encompassed what we wanted this business to be. We knew even then that we didn’t want to limit ourselves by naming our business something that would not fit if we ever decided to transition from focusing solely on weddings. And when we really started this business, weddings were definitely our only passion. We have always done other things: families, commercial work etc…, but our bread and butter was mainly weddings. As a young-married couple ourselves, we identified well with weddings as our niche.

Until we had kids, I honestly doubted that we would ever be vehemently passionate about other types of photography. But the moment our first daughter was placed in my arms, a clock (that I didn’t even know existed) began to tick backwards. Now that we have a family of our own, Brian and I now realize how incredibly fleeting and precious time truly is. Every day is a new gift, because the moments of the day-to-day fly by too fast for us to truly grasp. They are gone faster than we can soak them in. And this realization has brought about a passion for family and lifestyle photography that we really want to take to the next level with Project:Life Photo!

We are currently designing family and lifestyle photography sessions and packages, and we’re excited to announce more details towards the end of the summer! We can’t wait to capture more moments like these, that we were blessed enough to have been able to capture for the wonderful Graham family! Jonathan and Brittney’s wedding was one of our absolute favorites of 2014, and reconnecting with them and their sweet addition (Theo) for this session was such a pleasure. Their home was lovely, and their love for one another as a family of three was so genuine… which made for some gorgeous images!

Enjoy a few of our favorites from our lifestyle session with the Graham Family!


A location can make or break a portrait session sometimes. This rule of thumb is why we were thrilled when Brittany picked Wing Haven Garden in Charlotte for her bridal session! This venue has absolutely endless possibilities for gorgeous shots, especially when you have a subject this stunning. Not only is Brittany beautiful (inside and out), but her dress (Casablanca from Mecklenburg Bridal), her veil, her hair and makeup (Salon Naman), and even her gorgeous flowers (Willow Floral Boutique) were perfectly tailored factors for a lovely set of images. Enjoy a few of our faves from Brittany’s bridal session at Wing Haven!


We were so honored to capture Sydney’s bridal portraits. We have had a blast getting to know Sydney and her now-husband Brent in our church community group! Their story is so unique: Brent and Sydney met early on in their freshman year of college and became best friends. They did not date, but avoided dating other people because they did not want to spend less time with each other! During Sydney’s senior year of college, they had a heart-to-heart and decided to get married. They went from friends to fiance’s in an instant! So sweet…

Sydney is one of the most contagiously kind people we know. Her smile is beautiful, genuine and constant! She made an absolutely stunning bride and we’re thrilled to finally be able to share her bridal portraits with the world now that she and Brent have said “I do.” Enjoy a few of our favorites from Sydney’s Glencarin Garden bridal portrait session.
