We are¬†so incredibly honored to have been published on the cover of Charlotte Wedding Magazine‘s April-June 2014 issue! CWM’s art director arranged for our lovely cover-bride, Caitlin, to come out from California and dawn her grandmother’s wedding dress again at the Ballantyne Country Club for a special cover-shoot! They had mock-ups of possible cover lay-outs and specific parameters for the shoot, so it was very different from the typical bridal session where variety is important to keep in mind. We spent a lot of time trying to capture Caitlin dappled in glowy sunset light, but at the end of the shoot we grabbed a shot in front of some beautiful greenery that set of the vintage details of her gown so beautifully. Also, I was 8 1/2 months pregnant with Avonlea the day we photographed this session! It was a little unnerving for everyone involved, scheduling this very important shoot just 10 days prior to my due-date ūüėČ The lovely Diane Personett of as well as Kisha Whitney¬†were both on stand-by, just in case my water broke before or during the shoot. We’re so thankful for sweet friends who would be willing to do that! It was still super-fun, and wonderful to see Caitlin, her family, and the ever-so-talented Erin of Erin Ashley Makeup again!

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)
