One of my best buds and her fiance are getting married next spring and asked that I take some engagement pictures for them since their wedding photographer isn’t local. I had the luxury of A) a friend with a vision and B) some time to plan with said friend, so I think this shoot really turned out pretty darn cute. Jen and Anthony are two of the nicest people I know – and so cute it’s almost nauseating (but in a good way, Jen!). I like to think I played a small part in their getting together, since I urged her to date the insistent boy and that he was, in fact, a catch. Anthony brings out the best in my best bud, and these pictures definitely showcase that. They survived the sweltering heat and donned some fetching southern attire to get the look that Jen wanted for her save the dates. Guys, thanks for letting me practice on you and I hope you love these images as much as I do! You guys are the best!
Seersucker? Check. Argyle backdrop? Check. Balloons? Check. I see a save the date in this picture’s future. Some people have asked if I added the argyle pattern in photoshop and the answer is no! We found this awesome dock door (did I just say “awesome” and “dock door” in the same sentence?) while walking through Uptown and it couldn’t have been more perfect.
Their reception will be at the new Mint Museum in Uptown Charlotte. The modern structure has so many great little vignettes of texture/architecture. Plus, these two are super photogenic – win win, right?
