Congrats to Veronica and Chip!

Veronica and Chip were married in Charlotte at Christ Lutheran Church and held their reception at the Mint Museum in uptown Charlotte. They had an amazing day that included the love and support of some very fun people.

Ashley Cash of The Graceful Host provided the event planning and design. Flowers by Melanie Edwards of New Creations Flower Company. My main man Levar from Split Second Sound was the DJ (great as always). Makeup by Be Pretty’s Lindsey Regan Thorne.

What a great time! Here are just a few of my favorite photos from the day.

Just a quick note to future brides: If you are getting married at the Mint Museum, make sure you have a photographer that is experienced using off camera flash! It is a big place and this is mandatory for shooting there at night.

Also, these glasses are way cool for receptions!

Congrats to Erin and Ben!

Erin and Ben were married at the Duke Mansion in Charlotte, NC and held their reception there as well. This is a great venue if you are a traditional bride and want a timeless backdrop for your wedding. The couple was blessed with perfect wedding weather and took advantage by having their first dance outdoors. The wedding was planned by the always amazing Heather Bryson of Carolina Wedding Design. Entertainment was provided by Vinny from Split Second Sound.

Here are just a few of my favorite images of the day…

Congrats to Lauren and Michael!

Lauren and Michael were married at St Gabriel Catholic church and held their reception at Myers Park Country Club in Charlotte, NC. They are a fantastic couple with a rowdy group of friends who came ready to have a great time. Once the reception started, the dancing was non stop well into the night. What a great day!

Congrats to Stephanie and John!

Stephanie and John were married at the Ballantyne Hotel and held their reception there as well. They had an amazing outdoor reception complete with cigar and coffee stations which were a huge hit. The dancing went late into the evening as everyone enjoyed the perfect atmosphere provided. Entertainment provided by Split Second Sound, book those fellas, you can’t go wrong.

FYI… the four legged friend in the photos below is Duncan, the Best Dog.

Congrats to Hailey and Connie

Hailey and Connie were married and held their reception at River Hills Country Club. These Clemson fans had a great wedding and party including one of the liveliest exits I have ever witnessed. The bar shot was a request of the bride, something I am becoming well known for, unorthodox portraits. Whenever I shoot a venue, I want to shoot something that none of the other hundreds of photographers have shot before. When that happens, I am happy.

Note the glow stick exit. This blog receives visitors every day from all over the world who google “glow stick wedding exit”. Apparently I am the number one search result. It is difficult to shoot, but can be done with a little know how!
