Melissa + Lawrence – Charlotte Engagement Session

Melissa has been my spectacular assistant shooter for the last two years.  She is so dedicated, ambitious, and all around AMAZING, and I can’t imagine my Saturdays during wedding season without her.    She has a heart of gold and is super talented.  Lawrence treats her like a queen and is so funny and charming.  They are such a perfect match.  Here are some favorites from their engagement shoot we did on a perfect, sunny evening. LOVE these two!

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
