Charlotte Wedding Photography: Sandy and Tom


I love the month of October and it's an especially excellent time for weddings in the Carolinas.

I had the pleasure of photographing Sandy and Tom's October wedding at The VanLandingham Estate in Charlotte.

The talented team of Jenna Schmitt and Ivy Robinson of Ivy Robinson Weddings & Events coordinated a wonderful group of professionals including Heather Bryson of The Look for hair and makeup, Beth Hohensee's florals, Amy Craparo of The Wow Factor's cake and Roy Daye and the Cookie Band with some incredible music. I got another excellent assist from our company photographer Laura Mueller who always comes through with some superb images.

Congratulations Sandy and Tom! I know you are off having an amazing adventure in South Africa.
