When a girl from Rock Hill, SC meets a Costa Rican in Shanghai, China….. well it’s pretty awesome story. I think the story goes something like, he asked her to dance with him at a bar in Shanghai and then the rest is history.
I was so excited to photograph these two, they are a super beautiful couple and they took time getting to know me and my family. Twice they came over (with Brittany’s parents) to my place and enjoyed playing with my children while we chatted about their plans for the day. Through diapers, aches, and boo boo’s they hung in there as my kids screamed around the house. (I couldn’t believe that they wanted to come to my house! I warned them! haha!)
They are both amazing dancer’s and the salsa dancing at the wedding was my favorite part of the day. These people can dance…. goodness!
I might have danced a little too.
Congrats Alex and Brittany, thank you so much for letting me and Brandon photograph your day!
So, where do I start? Wow! I mean… look above… yep.
I met Lindsay about 5 years ago. She was one of the managers that I worked with at Anthropologie. Never would I have dreamed that years later I would be shooting her magical weekend at “The Inn at Palmetto Bluff.” When she wrote me and told me that they wanted to book me, I was extremely excited. We all sat down and Skyped together. (They live in Seattle, but are real-life Carolinians.) I immediately knew this weekend would be so incredible.
Their story in a nut shell is that Lindsay caught Kevin’s eye when she was working at a deli that he went to every day across the street from his work. He finally got the nerve to ask her out… and the rest is pretty much sweetness.
So to start the weekend off right, I showed up at the venue that they had booked (The Inn at Palmetto Bluff) and my assistant and I pretty much drove around with our jaws dropped. UN-FREAKIN-REAL! So, so so magical.
Back in the winter, Lindsay and Kevin planned a trip to Charlotte where I was supposed to do an engagement session. Well… their time was limited and they ended up not being able to do it. Thankfully, it worked out so that I could take a few portraits of them after their rehearsal leading up to their rehearsal dinner.
Their outfits were to die for, their smiles and laughs made this short session a breeze… oh, and the trees… goodness.
Their rehearsal dinner was also on the property of their venue, and they had a super fun, sassy southern dinner. Completely different than their wedding day.
So, here is the first part of an incredible weekend. Enjoy!
Oh the loveliness of an evening uptown Charlotte, shooting two fabulous people-Beth and Jeff. I’m so thrilled to have been chosen to shoot their fall wedding. It will also be my first Jewish wedding, and I can’t wait!
Enjoy a few favorites from their uptown session last week. They currently live in NYC, so I’m so happy that they were able to come into the town for us to do this!
