This is a 365 day photo project I am doing called “Many A Moon”. This is the whole month of April. See them all at rebekahfancher.tumblr.com
Rebecca and Jesse were our neighbors for years and years. We had the best snowball fights in the winter, pumpkin carving in the fall, fireworks in the summer and hiking in the spring. Late nights spent doing pranks on our other neighbors, taking long walks around our neighborhood and laughing for hours. We love the Graston’s. Last year they moved a little ways away, to a beautiful farm. They had their first baby and we still miss them living a few doors down. Every now and then we go out to “Grastonia”… shoot guns, go four wheeling, badminton, bbq, and swing on the hammock listening to the peacefulness of farm life.
Their beautiful boy, David turned one this month. I took some photos of this fabulous day! Enjoy! ;D
Happy Birthday David!
This past weekend was an incredibly crazy time for Brandon and me. On Saturday, I (with two second shooters help) shot a beautiful wedding (which I can’t wait to blog!) at just about 34 weeks pregnant. (Shy one day) My husband snapped this photo of me below. For a brief moment I had to flip off the shoes…
Back in October I had the amazing honor to shoot Jami’s sister’s incredible barn wedding. Here I was super excited when Lauren approached me about shooting her sister’s small intimate December wedding ten days before Christmas. If you saw Lauren’s wedding, you saw her mom’s amazing handy work in making the reception amazing. Well… she did it again!
They chose to get married at the small St Mary’s church in uptown Charlotte. Where pink flowers were blooming all over the bushes. (Crazy for December!) The reception was in the back yard of Jami’s home. Lights decorated all the bushes and trees and shrubs, three or four chandeliers hung from trees, and a tent was pitched in the back yard. Inside the tent was the most beautiful table seating for 50ish people with china, and silver. Every plate was different. It was so incredibly beautiful. Fabulous planning.
I’ve had the best time getting to know Jami and her family the last year or so through shooting her sister’s wedding and having dinners and coffee dates with their family. I’m so glad I got to be apart of their day. I sure love all of them.
Adam & Sunita’s wedding took place at the end of September. It was a two part day, the first part started at the Gurdwara Sahib Temple in Concord. It was a Sikh ceremony, full Indian attire. Sunita’s family came all the way from London, and her grandmother flew alone from India to celebrate their day.
The second part of their day was an evening traditional ceremony on the deck of the Mint Museum in uptown Charlotte, following was a reception on the top floor of the Mint. Gorgeous view of uptown Charlotte.
Thank you Kori Hoffman for being an absolutely incredible friend and second shooter for me.
Congrats Adam & Sunita! Thanks again.
Stephanie and Aldo are extremely sweet and sincere people. Its been a wonderful experience working and communicating with these two. Their wedding took place in Chapel Hill, NC on a May day. If you would like to see you their engagement pictures click here. My assistant and second shooter was Jonathan Volk. We had a great time shooting their day and Chapel Hill is a beautiful campus to shoot on. (Thanks for shooting Jonathan!!)
These are some of my favorites from the day. I will give the disclaimer that I am a sucker for black and white photos and I can’t help that most of my favorites being black and white.
Congrats Stephanie and Aldo!
Corey and Katie have such a grace about them, and during this session is it was so evident that they truly love each other. They made it super easy for me to photograph them. In October I’ll be shooting their wedding, and they actually found me through google images and I can’t say enough how glad I am that I tag my blog posts.
We decided to do their Engagement session at Queens University Campus where they both went to school and met. I haven’t ever been there before, but I really loved the big trees, large old doors and the gorgeous chapel they took me into.
I hope you all enjoy these photos!
Congrats Katie and Corey, I’m excited about your big day coming soon!
Lauren contacted me about a year ago. She found my photography through my beautiful sister-in-law being on Girl Meets Gown. Lauren, Matt and I met at a coffee shop last summer and chatted about her plans for a barn wedding filled with antiques. She wanted to do a rustic, country, October wedding. I am really excited about shooting their wedding in October.
The day before this engagement session, Brandon and I went and spent the day with Lauren and her family at the Steeple Chase out near Waxhaw. (I’ll blog my photos from it later!) We had the best time, eating, laughing, sipping sangria’s and watching the horse race. We so enjoyed getting to know Lauren and her family and feeling like we were in the movie “My Fair Lady”. I felt extremely spoiled by getting to watch the horse race from the paddock area.
First week of May we spent a Sunday evening in Waxhaw town, and ventured out in the country to an old general store and massive barn. I was dying, I wanted to shoot everything. The texture was so yummy, and Matt and Lauren were so great to work with. I’m really excited to share these photos. I hope you guys enjoy them!
