Laura & Robert | Lake Norman Backyard Wedding

I may be biased, since I was married in my backyard on a beautiful spring day such as this, but this was certainly one of the most sincere and enjoyable weddings we have shot. Laura and Robert were married in the backyard of their parents house, which sits on the edge of Lake Norman. Lanterns were hung throughout the yard and the wedding had a magical feel to it. I didn’t see any fairies though. Yes, I was looking!

Laura, being a big locally grown food advocate, had all their catering from local farms and sources. This was really great to experience, as my wife and i are also big local food supporters! The food was fantastic, of course, and thanks for feeding your photographer!

Their wedding coordinator, Shanika Butts of SJB Weddings and Events, did a fantastic job with every detail, and was a pleasure to work with.

Thanks for letting us be part of your big day!

Katherine & Jeremy | Atlanta Wedding

Katherine & Jeremy tied the knot in Atlanta. They were a great couple and we enjoyed traveling down to spend a few days with them. We got some great photos of the bride and bridesmaids sipping Starbucks and getting her hair and nails done in the morning, while Jeremy and the boys shot a few hoops in full tux attire to work the pre-ceremony jitters out. The wedding ceremony was beautiful and the reception was a riot! We wish Jeremy and Katherine all the best!

Katherine Bridal Portrait Session


Katherine, enganged to be married, hired us to shoot some bridal portraits. We headed down to one of our favorite spots, the Moorehead Inn in Charlotte. Katherine was poised and relaxed and needed little coaching and encouragement from us! The session went smooth and Katherine was very happy with her photos. Thanks Katherine!
