Daimyen’s Senior Portrait Session in Alpharetta, GA

11-28-10

Earlier this month when we were in Alpharetta for Blair & Nate’s Atlanta wedding, we had the opportunity to do a senior session for Daimyen.  His mom had contacted me about doing his senior pics and I was so flattered to find out they were planning on driving up to Charlotte, but we offered to do them while we were in the Atlanta area for the wedding.  We really enjoyed the challenge of shooting somewhere unfamiliar.  I’m sure the future holds great things for Daimyen and we wish him the best.

Metropolitan Club Wedding in Alpharetta, GA {Blair + Nate} | Atlanta Wedding Photographer

11-27-10

Our final wedding of the year !!  This was the last of five weddings we shot in a row and what a great way to end our 2010 wedding season.  Blair & Nate came up to Charlotte for their engagement session earlier this year.  I knew then what a fun couple they were going to be on wedding day and they did not disappoint.  They had a beautiful wedding ceremony and off-da-chain reception at the Metropolitan Club in Alpharetta, GA.  The whole day was full of surprises. 

They also have wonderful, loving families.  We felt like part of the family all weekend long from the rehearsal dinner to our departure.  She really took good care of her photographer 🙂  But most importantly, we were able to capture some amazing images that they will have to remember their day by for years.

 Nate’s reaction to his surprise groom’s gift.

 Blair’s reaction to her gift….priceless.

Their entrance and first dance was like no other I’ve ever seen and further demonstrates their fun personalities.  I will let the next set of pictures explain it.

 Making it rain during the money dance.  LOL

They know how to party in the ATL…period.

 Blair & Nate thanks again for allowing us to document your beautiful and fun day.

Friendship Missionary Baptist Church Wedding {Junelle + Steve} | Charlotte, NC

11-19-10

Junelle & Steve exchanged vows last month at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in Charlotte, NC.  This was wedding number 4 of 5 in a row for me and a very special one in so many ways.  I had mentioned in their engagement session that our families had known each other for years and they got married at the same church we grew up in and I got married in, my mom was a hostess in the wedding, her brother was the DJ, one of my previous brides was her maid of honor…..I could go on.  

The wedding and reception were absolutely beautiful and there were details galore with live roses everywhere and a candy bar.  The decor was done by Posh Charlotte. Junelle was a beautiful bride and I was honored to document their special day.

 I loved this part of the reception….the newlyweds getting advice from the couple that had been married the longest.  54 years !!!

 One of the groomsmen proposed during the reception.  Very exciting to photograph my first live engagement.

St. Mary’s Chapel Wedding | Big Chill Reception Sonya & Wendel |

11-13-10

Sonya & Wendel are such a genuine couple. I knew from doing their engagement session that they were super easy to work with. They were just as fun and energetic on wedding day and I think it showed in their pictures.  As a native Charlottean, I’ve always seen and passed by St. Mary’s Chapel, but never been inside. It is a small, historic chapel, but absolutely beautiful inside.  The venue for their wedding reception was the Big Chill.

Sonya adhered to her wedding day timeline down to the minute so that allowed us some time to get some gorgeous bridal portraits before the ceremony. Just a hint to future brides 🙂


Definitely one of the neatest reception shots I’ve ever taken.  I LOVE this one !!

Wendel is from Trinidad and when they started playing authentic Caribbean music, the party was taken to a whole ‘nother level.

We had a great time and thanks again & congrats to Sonya & Wendel !!
