Charlotte Wedding Photography: Vanessa and Josh

I’d been looking forward to working with Vanessa and Josh again since photographing their engagement session in October. Vanessa is a long-time friend of my niece Melissa, and Missy was excited about being in the wedding for some time. Well, we all know that plans don’t always work out, and the arrival of Missy and […]

Charlotte Wedding Photography: Mandi and Michael

I’ve traveled far and wide documenting weddings over the past nine years. So it was really nice to be able to photograph a wedding very close to home at Lake Forest, the church my family has been attending for the past several years. And it was an especially joyful celebration as Michael, one of our […]

Charlotte Wedding Photography: Emily and Patrick

There was an air of a familiarity as I photographed Emily and Patrick’s wedding at First Presbyterian Church and the reception at Quail Hollow Club. I had photographed her sister  Ellen’s wedding a few years back at the same venues and I welcomed a chance to work with her wonderful family again. It rained heavily […]

Charlotte Wedding Photography: Hunter and Michael

Hunter and Michael exchanged vows at First Presbyterian Church in a joyful day filled with family. I love the historical setting of First Presbyterian, which stands in stark contrast to the gleaming uptown buildings that surround it. Michael’s family has deep Louisiana roots, but even a loss by their beloved New Orleans Saints couldn’t put […]

Charlotte Wedding Photography: Gretchen and Mark

Gretchen and Mark’s intimate celebration was a wonderful way to finish off our 2011 wedding season. And as Gretchen told me, “Mark and my story is one of joy, grief, and many, many, blessings.” The couple, who have known each other for many years, both lost a spouse to cancer. Gretchen’s first husband, also Mark, […]

Charlotte Wedding Photography: Holt and Aidan

Ingredients for an amazing wedding: excellent venues, top-notch professionals and, or course, a wonderful couple. The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte, was the perfect setting as Holt and Aidan exchanged vows and later partied the night away with family and friends from near and far. Aidan’s family is from Ireland but he grew up in Charlotte. They have […]

Lake Norman Wedding Photography: Kristan and Dana

With a gorgeous fall day as the backdrop, Kristan and Dana were married at The Point Lake and Golf Club in Mooresville. Beautiful florals from The Place for Flowers added to the autumnal feel on a sunny but sometimes chilly October day. Kelley Cartrett-Phifer, director of private events, and the staff at The Point always […]

Charlotte Wedding Photography: Lauren and Jeff

Lauren and Jeff were married at Saint Gabriel Catholic Church on a spectacular fall day in Charlotte. The bride looked amazing in her white silk dress from Ines Di Santo. Adding to the day were beautiful flowers from The Blossom Shop and an incredible cake from Haines Barksdale of For Goodness Cakes. The staff at […]

Winston-Salem Wedding Photography: Regina and Vincent

I first met Reginia when I photographed her sister Ticia’s wedding in 2005. And I welcomed the chance to work with her family again when she contacted me to photograph her wedding to Vincent in Old Salem in Winston-Salem. Vincent proposed to Regina on the covered bridge in Old Salem, which encompasses 100 acres of […]

Columbia Wedding Photography: Suzanne and Ryan

Suzanne and Ryan chose the beautiful Lexington Baptist Church for their ceremony and then took a short ride to the reception at the Columbia Marriott. It seemed that all the details had been taken care of, right down to USC getting a football win in a close game. Gamecock fans were plentiful and the victory […]
