Mackenzie and Wesley have a love that grows stronger each day! They just celebrated their 3 year anniversary so, of course, we had to do a session! Mackenzie wanted a more editorial feel this time around so we chose Uptown Shelby and it was perfect! If you’ve been following the blog for any length of […]

Jamie and Sam met while working together and there was an immediate connection.  Funny enough, it was my own dad that suggested Sam should ask Jamie out on a date!  The same week they met, Sam was planning to move back to Pennsylvania and even had a job interview lined up!  But after meeting Jamie, […]

This romantic engagement session, at Baker Buffalo Creek, was so much fun!  Jessica is a former bridesmaid of mine so, of course, I was ecstatic when she reached out about photographing her wedding!  We had originally planned to do their session in the mountains, but after hearing about a severe wind advisory we decided to […]

Ivy and Brian’s mountain engagement session was so sweet and romantic!  They even brought along some champagne and their precious little fur baby, Niko.  There have been many celebrations at this family farm so it was extra special for Ivy. These two have the sweetest story so I’m going to let Ivy take over from […]

Old Paths Farms was the perfect setting for this romantic couples session!  I have known Taylor since she was a little girl and getting to be a part of the major milestones in her life has been such a blessing!  She and Jordan are a match made in heaven and they share a love like […]

Zimmerwald Estate always makes for a beautiful portrait setting!  So, of course, I was thrilled when Renee and Chris chose this location!  These two are such a blast to be around and by the end of the session I felt like I had known them my entire life!  The entire afternoon was filled with fun […]

Biltmore Estate engagement sessions never get old, especially when you’re working with the sweetest couples!  This was my first time shooting there during the holiday season and it was so much fun!  Allison and Shane drove all the way up from Morehead City for this magical session and it was extra dreamy! Allison and Shane […]

Kayla and Dustin’s Lake Lure engagement session was so sweet and romantic!  They may live in Charlotte, but the lake is home to Kayla.  Her grandmother has a house on the lake, which her grandfather built many years ago, so she chose this location since it’s so special to her! It was the most perfect […]

Midtown Park is my favorite of all of the Charlotte parks!  Paired with a gorgeous couple, like Shelby and Sean, my photographer heart could have exploded with excitement!  You would think these two have modeled before and they are just as sweet as they are beautiful! Shelby and Sean met while attending Clemson University together. […]

This Lake Park engagement session was the sweetest!  Jaclyn and Chandler wanted to incorporate their precious pups so they chose to do their session in their beautiful neighborhood!  With multiple lakes, gardens, and trails, it was the perfect setting! Chandler proposed on the beach in Jamaica, on their four year anniversary.  Jaclyn had a feeling […]
