NFC Divisional Playoffs {49ers vs Panthers}| Charlotte, NC


I had one of the most exciting opportunities of my photography career yesterday.  I photographed the NFC Divisional Playoff game between the Panthers and the visiting 49ers.  A couple of months ago, I shot the Monday Night Football game against the Patriots and I thought that was the loudest I had ever heard Bank of America stadium….until yesterday.   NFL playoffs are on another level and the energy from the fans was crazy.  The 49ers brought their A-game all 4 quarters and the Panthers simply couldn’t keep up 2nd half.  It was a memorable experience to witness 2 of the great defenses in the league and 2 young, great quarterbacks go head-to-head.  Here’s some images from game.

Bennett College & Grandover Wedding {Karlea + Ahmed} | Greensboro, NC


This makes 3 years in a row we’ve shot a December wedding.  Our last wedding of 2013 was up in Greensboro, NC.  The ceremony was at the historic Bennett College chapel and reception at the Grandover resort.  Weather was absolutely beautiful for it to have been in December.  I didn’t get to meet Karlea and Ahmed until wedding day and we hit it off just great.  They were a great couple to work with and we got a great variety of shots with them deciding to do a first look.

    Absolutely beautifu! Ahmed is so handsome & the bride is beautiful. Love her gown. The whole wedding party was sharp. Is your daughter-in-law a Delta? I saw you & your Mom (both sharp as always); it looked like you were singing to her. Congratulations & hanks for sharing.
