Lakyn’s Bridal Portraits

It is always so exciting to finally get to share the Bride’s beautiful pre-wedding portraits after the Wedding has taken place! We took these of Lakyn in June, shortly before her lovely July Wedding. We used the setting from Alyssa & Brad’s Wedding (the Field Barn at Anne Springs Close Greenway), as well as a vintage boudoir chair I picked up on Craigslist. The ambiance was perfect for the sweet, modern, with a touch-of-rustic Bride! Lakyn was so gorgeous and perfect to photograph- she could easily be a model. We will have a blog coming soon of Lakyn & Keith’s beautiful Wedding Day!

Ty + Natalia : Married May 19th, 2012

 Check out Ty & Natalia’s sweet afternoon ceremony and reception on this beautiful day in May! We’ve seen plenty of our brides wear colored shoes- but no one has pulled off the look paired with the midlength style wedding dress quite like this sassy gal! LOVED it! Ty & Natalia were fantastic to work with, and so natural with each other in front of the camera. It was almost too easy for us to capture all of these fantastic shots of the newlyweds together.

Nancy + Shawn’s E Session

Nancy and Shawn are: getting married in November, my neighbors across the street (we only found this out after we met for their consultation!), and totally AWESOME! We had a blast doing this E Session in the NoDa district of Charlotte- the fun, artsy vibe of the area played perfectly with Nancy’s style and personality. The Salud Beer Shop (if you are in NoDa- check them out! I was drooling a little bit over their amazing selection of beer and imports!) was totally cool with us not only shooting in their shop, but setting up our lights, etc as well (you guys rock!). My husband was along to assist (aka carry my loads of equipment around :P), and he and Shawn insisted on pausing for a bit of a taste testing :). We finished the sesh by the Neighborhood Theater, which to my disappointment was not screening what I was pretty sure would be the best movie ever, but instead hosting a concert by Trampled By Turtles (I’m sure they were great to see as well). Congrats to Nancy & Shawn on their engagement! We are definitely looking forward to shooting your Big Day in November!

Abby + Bud: Married March 31st, 2012

Our first wedding of the season- Abby & Bud’s beautiful day at the Dairy Barn in Fort Mill! The bridal party and the bride & grooms parents have been such a pleasure to work with- it’s always a blessing to share the Big Day with such wonderful people. I had my sister/former employer/owner of BlackSilver Imaging fly in to shoot with me for the occasion (Corrie’s on her pre-baby “maternity leave”), and we had a blast. The planning and floral details are by TA DA, this was the first time I had the pleasure of working with Jenny & her entourage (they were awesome!). We set up some pinterest inspired shots- and for you ladies still planning your wedding, pinterest is such an awesome place to collect and share ideas (but you probably knew that already!). Thank you to Abby & Bud for letting us be a part of your Big Day!

Abby’s Bridal Session

 

Now that Abby & Bud’s wedding has passed, I am excited that I can post some cute shots from Abby’s gorgeous bridal session! We shot this in February, on what turned out to be one of the only terribly cold and windy days this winter. The wind may have been a bit bothersome, but it ended up making for some really beautiful, romantic images! Abby & Bud’s wedding was on March 31st, and it was gorgeous!! I can’t wait to post shots from their Big Day!

Shot @ the Dairy Barn in Fort Mill.

Brittani’s Senior Session

Brittani had another Senior Session up in Brevard, NC (Ann and I have decided Brevard is definitely one of our favorite places ever!). Since Brit is the little sister of Ann Nguyen (our awesome stylist at Elle Imaging), she pretty much gets everything pro bono (another great reason for talented vendors to connect with us!). This is Brit’s second set of senior session photos- they really wanted to hit up the waterfalls, and we were up for the weekend getaway! Enjoy a few sneak peeks….

photoshoot.

Fati and I are working on some fun & inspired photoshoots…. she’s building her modeling portfolio and I am killing time waiting for wedding season to kick in again :). On the other hand I love doing fashion inspired photography, and working with the most dynamic model I have ever met. I think we are both contemplating really breaking into the fashion industry.

Corrie’s Maternity Session

Love my girl Corrie- for those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of her accompanying me to your wedding, she is my #1 second shooter and soon to be an even bigger part of Elle Imaging (no spoilers!). We shot her maternity session on a ridiculously warm and beautiful January afternoon- is it seriously winter down here? Styling was all by Corrie, which couldn’t have been more perfect. I can’t wait to meet little baby H!
