Charlotte Family Photography: Anne, Kelly, Darcy and Bridget

After photographing their October wedding in 2007, it was wonderful getting a chance to spend some time with Anne and Kelly as we documented family life five years later with their two children. It a gorgeous fall morning for a fun photo shoot at their south Charlotte home. It was such a pleasure catching up […]

Charlotte Engagement Photography: Melissa and Dan

Having spent many years as a newspaper photographer, I always enjoy catching up with fellow journalists. I first met Melissa when she interned at The Charlotte Observer when I was a staff photographer there. Fast forward several years and I’m now working full-time in our photography business and Melissa is a newspaper photojournalist in South […]

Charlotte Engagement Photography: Vanessa and Josh

We had a picture-perfect fall day for Vanessa and Josh’s engagement session at Freedom Park in Charlotte. The leaves haven’t quite turned yet but the crisp air, warmed by plentiful sunshine made for ideal conditions. Vanessa is a very close friend of my niece Melissa (Missy to our family), and it was great getting to […]

Preparing for a very busy wedding season in the coming weeks, I got things started Saturday photographing Tara and Ryan’s engagement session in the morning and a bridal portrait in the afternoon.

Engagement Photos: Alison and David

I hadn’t met Alison and David before our photo shoot Monday. I was concerned it might be a washout as showers fell in the morning and rain was forecast throughout the day. The couple lives near Boston but will be getting married here this Saturday in the Lake Norman area. It was great to get […]

The spring weather has been unpredictable as usual but we’ve been lucky to dodge raindrops during a couple of recent outdoor engagement sessions in Charlotte. Catherine and Stephen are a fun couple who are so easy to work with. I’m really looking forward to their July wedding in Charlotte. We headed out to Freedom Park […]
