Heather & Clint: Charlotte Wedding Photographer

I don't even know how to start this post... Heather is seriously my BIGGEST fan - when it comes to photography that is.  She has been a constant encourager when I feel doubtful, and not only about photography.  She's been a friend.  From the first time she worked her magic on my hair I knew she had a sweet and pure heart.  She's kind, funny, and drop dead gorgeous and I am more than honored that she trusted me to shoot her engagement photos, two bridal portrait sessions (seen here and here), and of course her amazing wedding.

Her wedding was held at Palisades Country Club and every detail was breathtaking.  The most incredible part is that she did a lot of it herself.  The staff at the country club was superb, I could seriously go on and on about how wonderful everything was.  I must say, an image that is still burning in my heart is how Clint adoringly looked at her each moment he could.  From the very instant he saw her coming down that grand staircase, you could just feel the love seeping from his heart.  He was genuinely happy, and it was so refreshing to witness.  Heather was stunning, and I was *almost* moved to tears when I saw her in her gown.  She was glowing, inside and out.  Surrounded by family and friends who love and adore her only added to the glow.  I am so happy I was there to witness it all.  When Clint and Heather said their vows, you could feel the depth of their love and when they were announced husband and wife you could see their joy.  I could literally go on and on telling each emotion, each detail, but I won't.  I'll let the photos do that.  I am so grateful that I had my friend and coworker, Amber Mobley, there with me to help me capture it all!

Thank you, Heather, for always cheering me on.  Thank you for trusting me to capture yours and Clint's love, I have enjoyed it beyond belief.  I wish you and Clint a lifetime of love and laughter!

Much Love,

Lauren & Taylor: Charlotte Wedding Photographer

My very first wedding as the main photographer was April 16th.  The weather made the day interesting, but everything pretty much went as planned.  The girls got ready at The Villa at Waters Edge, the guys at The Palmer Building, which is also where the reception was held.  After everyone was ready we were off to St. Mary's Chapel for the ceremony.  Once the ceremony was finished we went back to The Palmer Building for some quick wedding party and shots before it was time to party!  

Thank you Lauren for choosing and trusting me to capture one of the most important days of your life.  I wish you and Taylor all the happiness in the world!

Also, I need to thank one of my very best friends and sisters, Christy Foreman, who helped me capture every single detail of Lauren's big day.  Christy, I know I've already told you this, but I would've been lost without you.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I love you, Friend!
