Meet the Grants! {Evan & Erica's Kennesaw Wedding | The Grande}

I had the pleasure of being contacted by this loving couple for their wedding and from the moment I got to meet with them, I could tell just how much Evan and Erica loved each other.  These two, just watching them talk about their wedding, and what it meant to them, it was touching.  All throughout their wedding day, which was perfection, by the way, it was so clear that the main thing (aside from them tying the knot!) was sharing this amazing, once-in-a-lifetime day with their family and friends.  

All the simple details, the turquoise and gold colors, the adorable (and DELICIOUS) cupcakes, and the beautiful white flowers came together in the best fashion.

The love these two have was so easy to capture.  Erica couldn't stop smiling, even when I asked her to!  Evan looked so dapper, to match.  These two just kill me with how perfectly they fit together!

Jessica & Brian Wedding {Vista at Walnut Hill} - Charlotte Wedding Photographer

Finding love isn't always easy.  Sometimes, it takes a lot longer than we think it should to find.  Then, sometimes, a story like this happpens.  Brian and Jessica were high school sweethearts, then they went their separate ways.  Life happened, then, a simple Facebook post happened...

After that, as Brian started keeping track of the coordinates of their special dates, they started forging a life with each other, and with their kids.  Their wedding day was simply a new chapter starting in a wonderful, lovely story.  Their wedding had Up-inspired items, Superheros, and was just so very, THEM.  Enjoy!

Jessica is that girl that I swear could make a friend out of anybody.  Always described as bubbly, giggly, and fiercely loyal.  She also got married this past Saturday!  It was so gorgeous, and the weather was so perfect, such a blessing for her and her new husband, Brian.  Those images will come in time, but for now, I am honored to be able to showcase just a few of the many incredibly beautiful bridal portraits I captured of her.  Enjoy!

 

 

The Solberg Family

These guys... Goodness...  I don't even know where to start.  I met Christen in, I think either middle school or high school, I honestly cannot recall anymore!  A fellow ginger and a wonderful lady, we maintained a friendship over the years, and I was honored when she asked me to photograph her wedding to Nels, an amazing man she'd met through work.  Between the two of them, they made one gorgeous little girl, and I considered it an even higher honor that she asked me to chronicle her first year in the world!  

Babyportraits

I was so clear from the moment I came over when she was 2 weeks old that Amelia already had them both wrapped around her tiny little fingers.  Daddy moreso, but still, she had completely stolen their hearts.

I was so thrilled that Christen and Nels wanted to do their session in their home, in the intimacy of their lifestyle.  It's such a joy to capture true moments amidst the chaos of real life. The pups were very much on guard watching over Amelia that day, as well. 

It's been so fun to watch Amelia grow up as the shoots have gone on!  Just as giggly and happy as her parents!

I think we had a record for only one or two mini-meltdowns for the whole One-year series.  this family just always seems to have it together!

As we reached her one year portrait session, Amelia's curiosity clearly has reached a high point, because she was everywhere!  Instead of making her sit, and keeping her down, we decided to let her roam, and we just had to keep up with her!  

I cannot wait to work with this family again, and am so honored to have friends like them to count on and spend time with!

Happy 1 year, Miss Amelia, you crazy fun little frosting monster!!  You will, one day, realize how very much you are loved!
