New Year's Day Wedding & Reception at the Gantt Center {Nisha + Rodd} | Charlotte, NC

01-18-11

The first wedding of the year…the first day of the year. 1-1-11 was a pretty neat date to get married, so we were excited to bring in the new year by shooting Nisha & Rodd’s wedding at the Harvey B. Gantt Center in Charlotte, NC. We did a 3-month old and 1-year old shoot for their twin boys so you we are already pretty familiar with the family and it’s always an honor to work with repeat clients. There was a little rain, but it didn’t take anything away from the beautiful ceremony and fun reception that took place inside. It was also a pleasure to work with Shanika and her entire team from SJB Weddings & Events.  Click HERE to view the slideshow of Nisha & Rodd’s beautiful day.  Below are a few of my favorite images:

      Thanks Kristen. The stationary was beautiful. I’m assuming you did the invitations also ?….those were extremely nice as well. Nisha chose some awesome vendors 😉

Happy Founders Day to my Delta Sigma Theta brides

01-14-11

I’m about 30 minutes late, but I wanted to wish all my 2010 brides who are members of Delta Sigma Theta a Happy Founder’s Day. I had the pleasure of shooting 5 weddings last year for brides who are Delta’s and we had a great time at each of them.

A small, beautiful occasion...

01-09-11

Last month, we had the pleasure of shooting a small, intimate, in-home wedding. This was the first small ceremony like this we’ve shot and it was no different from a larger ceremony except for the number of guests.  There were beautiful decorations, emotional vows, and just a beautiful day all around and we were extremely honored to be a part of such a touching occasion. We went with a more traditional style for the bride & groom portraits. The first 3 pics are of the adorable little flower girl….she almost stole the show 🙂
