David & Kelly: Charlotte Engagement Photographer

Have you ever noticed how it makes you feel to be around a couple who is absolutely head over heels in love with one another?  Pretty good, eh?  That's how I felt all morning this past Saturday with these two love birds.  They just got engaged October 16th in a hot air balloon above Asheville, NC!  How romantic is that!  I had the privilege of working with David for about a year and he and I got to know one another pretty well since we sat right next to each other.  We basically chatted over the cube wall all day long.  Anyone who knows him knows that he is an outstanding  man, and after finally meeting Kelly on Saturday I decided she's pretty amazing too!  :)  These two are made for each other, and it made me so happy to see "our little David" as we refer to him at work so incredibly happy.  David was so excited about our session, he was our tour guide taking us to each location that he had previously scouted out.  I couldn't have asked for anything more; an amazing, excited couple on an incredible Autumn morning!  It was perfect, see.....

Kelly, you're gorgeous. Period.

These next two are definitely in my top 10 list of all time favorites!

David did a great job picking out the perfect ring for his sweet girl!  :)

Kelly- thanks for LOVING my camera with your eyes!  

We finished our shoot with some fun shots in front of the Panthers stadium!  

David & Kelly, thank you so very much for choosing me to capture such an exciting time in your lives. I had the BEST time with both of you and I am so glad I got to spend some time getting to know you, Kelly!  I truly hope I have the opportunity to spend more time with both of you!  

Much Love,

Josie Rose - Part II

Last Saturday I met Nick and Amber at Latta Plantation to make up Josie's outdoor portion of her session since we were rained out the week before.  The chilly, crisp fall air is my absolute favorite and with lots of leaves already on the ground and a cuddly little family to hang out with it couldn't get much better!  :)

Where our hearts are....

Last year we started a new annual tradition, a family beach trip around Isaac's Birthday and Labor Day.  You may remember reading this post that I wrote when we returned last year.  This year we went to Carolina Beach, which was a much shorter drive than our Emerald Isle trip last year.  We LOVE non-commercialized beaches.  Carolina Beach is a little more commercialized than Emerald Isle.  Another difference this year is that we decided we wanted to take Walker and we are so glad we did.  Hurricane Irene threatened the beginning of our vacation but other than some wind and rain the first evening we weren't really impacted.  We had an amazing time, and have decided that moving to the beach is a lot more feasible than we thought a year ago.  Isaac works for Time Warner and there is a location in Wilmington.  We're hoping in the next few years we can transfer down there....  that's where our hearts are anyway.
