Downtown Engagement Session {Shapera & Eddie} | Charlotte Wedding Photographers


Last weekend I had the pleasure of hanging out with Shapera & Eddie.  Turns out, me and Eddie had know each other from several years ago  and we quickly got re-acquainted and hit it off great at their wedding consultation.  Just goes to show when you cross paths with genuinely good people, you don’t forget them.   The good vibes kept rolling during their engagement session.  They are a great looking couple and super easy to work with.  You can’t tell from the images, but the ‘only’ negative is we had to deal with some killer wind that was whipping Shapera’s hair all over the place.  Let’s just say it took a lot of patience and some perfect timing 🙂  I’m looking forward to shooting their wedding in Greensboro, NC

next year.Charlotte-wedding-photographer-blog_0300 Charlotte-wedding-photographer-blog_0301

Olympia D. styled portrait session


I recently did a photo session for Olympia D. who is the the Assistant Program Director for Radio One and also an on-air radio personality for Old School 105.3.  The shoot was produced by my buddy J. Hill of BrandUScript PR and styled by Majesty Timberlake of BornMajestic.  Here’s a few images from the session:

Monday Night Football ! Panthers vs Patriots


A couple of weeks ago, I shot the Panthers vs. Patriots game from the sidelines on Monday Night Football.  I’ve shot several games over the last few years, but this was my first  opportunity to shoot a MNF game.  Even people who don’t follow football can identify with the “Monday Night Football” brand.  It ended up being a great game that came down to the last play of the game and I’ve never heard Bank of America stadium so loud.


By the way Ray Lewis was looking right at my camera on that 2nd pic, you would have thought he was doing his own personal GQ photoshoot

This was the game winning touchdown by Ted Ginn….but it happened on the wrong side of end zone for me to get the best shot 🙁
