Byron’s South End Wedding – Amy + John

I love the bold colors that Amy and John chose for their sweet September wedding at Byron’s South End.   It reflected their fun personalities just perfect. You may remember Amy and John from their Concord Airport tarmac engagement session – lighthearted and unique is the perfect description for these two.  Amy’s infectious laugh and smile is the perfect compliment to John’s calm and endearing nature.  They’re the perfect match.

Bright florals with pops of gold, vintage china and lots of candlelight set the scene for their reception.  The party was led by Split Second Sound, who did a fantastic job (as always) packing the dance floor the whole night.

I have to give a special thanks to my second shooter, Alisha Rudd, who knocked this wedding out of the park. Check out her work, she’s awesome  :)

It was such a fun evening and I wish Amy and John all the best! xo

Fashion Spread – Charlotte Wedding Magazine

Back in August I was asked by the Editor of Charlotte Wedding to photograph a fall fashion shoot for the magazine. Heck yes I will!

I had the opportunity to work with this gorgeous model, Melissa, and photograph some fun really fun wedding day looks put together by Erica Hanks, and gorgeous florals by Carey Roberts Design.  Hair and makeup were done by Tara DiPetrillo, and we shot the whole speed on location at the Ballanytne Hotel. We darted around the resort on a golf cart scouting out locations and creating some awesome images.  Pick up your copy in stores now, or view the online version of the spread here.

Here are some more of my favorites from the shoot! Thanks to Charlotte Wedding for the opportunity!
