Crest Pavillion Wedding Photographer – Heather and Jonathan

Not everyone is afraid of getting married on Friday, the 13th… some cool couples embrace it!

Jonathan and Heather were set on one very important detail on their wedding day… FUN!  They wanted to dance the night away – and they did. They chose to forgo the usual Reception events and went straight from a brief dinner to dancing. Needless to say, they know how to party and the floor stayed upbeat until the last song.

My best wishes and many more dances for these two!

Biltmore Estate Wedding Photographer – Michelle and Eugene

It was such a pleasure meeting Michelle and Eugene in person and documenting their destination wedding at The Biltmore Estate.  We had the perfect day for an outdoor wedding at Deerpark and the dancing during the reception was fantastic!
These two left for an amazing honeymoon in Bora Bora (jealous – jealous) after the wedding.  Wishing them both extreme happiness and a blessed marriage. 🙂

Rhonda Johnson - Beautiful wedfing!

Charlotte Wedding Photographer – Bridal Portraits ~ A Bride and a Horse

I’ve been so lucky lately with my portrait sessions! A few weeks ago, I photographed a lovely girl and her pony and this past Sunday – A bride and a horse! I love how these turned out. Michelle and Casey were married a few weeks ago at the beautiful Daniel Stowe Gardens. Michelle mentioned she wanted to do her bridals post-wedding with a horse and I couldn’t have been more giddy at the idea. We weren’t worried about the dress or veil getting dirty or torn (which, did happen on the wedding day when a clumsy photographer stepped on the veil) ;( – just sayin’

Enjoy!

2016-05-16_001we did some without Remedy the horse too…

Biltmore Estate Wedding Photographer – Leanne and Chapman

What a fantastic wedding!

The day couldn’t have been more beautiful! Although, there were several times the wind made it seem that Leanne’s veil was attacking her – (it made for great photos) – we had no complaints.

After a first look on the South Terrace at Biltmore Estate, we relaxed and set out for an amazing portrait session.  The wedding ceremony was performed by Chapman’s grandfather and was a very sentimental moment for the entire family.

I wish these two all the happiness in their future marriage.  Congrats guys!!!

Personal – My visit to California ~Carmel-by-the-Sea

I mentioned in an earlier post that I’ve been traveling… I was actually in California last week visiting my sister, Jenny, and her gorgeous family. It was a quick trip, but, so worth it. We squeezed in so much in the few days I was visiting – the HIGHLIGHT hands down was our hike at Point Lobos outside of Big Sur. Wow! I just mean – wow. I cannot wait to go back with my whole family and take in so much more…

The water color was incredible!

Of course, we managed a few portraits of the kiddos… (seriously – 15 mins max!)
