Announcing the next WORKSHOP- Oct 8, 2011

I am super excited about the next workshop! This will be the last workshop of the year and before new baby arrives! It will be held Oct. 8 in Concord, NC- location TBD. Joe and I love putting on these classes and seeing the "lightbulb" moment when our "students" get how to take amazing photos with their DSLR's. Here is what you need to know:

*This is a beginner photography DSLR workshop.
*What if you don't have a digital SLR? Borrow one and come join the fun! The class is for people who have never "gotten off green" when using their camera to those who have read the manual but still don't completely understand what the heck an f/stop is. We will get you off green and completely on manual mode. We will cover tricks of the trade and all the little helpful hints to help you get great photos of your kids, sports, family time, etc! It is an opportunity to learn how to work all those buttons on that fancy camera you got for your birthday or Christmas. It is not a class to become a professional photographer or for those who already have or work with a photography business.
*There will be lots of one on one time and plenty of time for questions- then we will all practice what we have learned with a LIVE model. *Tuition is $150 and spots are limited. Spots are confirmed when tuition is received.
*If you would like to reserve a spot, email me at
*The class can be given as a gift.
*October 8, 2011 from 9am-12:30pm

I look forward to seeing you there!

{Katie & Haskell} Charlotte Wedding Photographer

What can I say about these two? I love them so much...they are so special to Joe and I. We had an amazing time celebrating with Katie and Haskell and sharing these special moments with them and their families. They had a beautiful ceremony in downtown Concord followed by a F.U.N. reception at the amazing Club at Irish Creek- a venue we love working with. Their wedding party was pretty much hard to beat. Truly. So fun to work with and game for anything! Our favorite type of clients! Plus, some past brides were in Katie's wedding party- we love a good reunion! I am so happy to call these two friends. Enjoy a glimpse of their day, and don't forget to watch the slideshow at the end.


My So-Called Life: Kendall

Don't get sick of the seniors just yet! Lots more to come!

Kendall is a doll and we had a great time on our session. It was hot, I mean really, really hot. Kendall hung in there though! She was in town for a short time from Florida so we squeezed in a session while she was visiting her grandparents and cousins. It would be the hottest day of the year! I love how her eyes just pop out of every photo, not to mention her perfect skin. Enjoy!

Lindsey Lee Bride: Katie

Can't wait to put up Katie and Haskell's wedding tomorrow! For now, here are a few of her bridals portraits. We went up to Blowing Rock for her session, and literally ran from horrible storms the whole way up and while we were there. Luckily the clouds parted and we were able to get some great shots! And had some great food in town when we were finished (can we say pregnant lady only worried about one thing??) Happy Tuesday!

My So-Called Life: Riley

More seniors! Love hanging out with Riley. He smiles, he looks rather handsome in his photos, and when Joe comes to the session with us and jumps out from behind a bush to scare him while I capture it on camera, he is a good sport and just laughs with us while we laugh at him:) True story. I thought about posting the photo, but since Joe looks like a bird in the picture and Riley looks like he just saw a ghost, I thought they might get mad at me. My job is fun:) Enjoy!

My So-Called Life: Serena

Love this girl! Serena was one of my reps this year, and it was time for her official session. She is always so much fun and up for any adventure we can find. Want to pull on the side of the street right here and take some pics? Sure! she says:) Enjoy her contagious smile:)

Here is a little peak from the bridal session I did for Natasha just two days before her wedding in Portsmouth, VA. Couldn't wait to know I am a sucker for a red background. Look for lots of photo goodness this week! Happy Sunday!

{Courtney & Jayme} Concord Wedding Photographer

Courtney and Jayme, I don't know if there were ever two more devout ECU fans out there:) They met at ECU, they love ECU, and they now live near ECU. Their wedding colors were purple and gold and they traveled to and from in a Pirate bus! It was absolutely fabulous! Joe and I had a blast celebrating with them and it was one of the best parties we have been to all year! Thanks for letting us feel like family during this special time in your lives! Don't forget to check out the slideshow at the bottom for more photos...

Courtney's ring gives me ring envy. We both have asher cut and I think hers is to die for! Check out the cute little pennants the "flower" girls carried. precious.


So many previews my head is spinning!

People, I have had the best and most fun couple of weeks! So many great things to get here on the blog. I just need to stop shooting long enough to be able to blog it all! Believe it or not, this isn't even everything I have in right now, but it's a good place to start....

My So-Called Life: Ashley

Told ya so! More seniors! I never get tired of these sessions....though I do get tired of 99.9 degree weather:) Ashley was great on our session, and we even managed the find the last of the sunflowers that had not died yet in Cabarrus County. Her blue eyes pierce straight through the camera. I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend, take a moment to enjoy her sweet smile!

My So-Called Life: Sarah

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE seniors! I promised you lots and lots of seniors:) I am good for my word- here is another cutie pie, Sarah. We arranged to take her session down at Lake Tillery and it proved to be the perfect setting for her photos. She is so sweet and we had a great time together- not to mention the fact that we both love Harry Potter and had both gone to the midnight showing the night before our session. She went somewhere cool to see it, I went to Carolina Mall. At least I made it right?! Even preggers I managed to stay awake! I digress...Sarah is so cute and fun and I love her photos. Hope you do, too!

My So-Called Life: McKinney

More and more senior goodness! McKinney is just the sweetest and we had a great and hot time at her session:) This girl only gets prettier the hotter it is outside! We shot this session the day the temperature was 101 degrees. By the way, I am so jealous of her just right curly hair. Enjoy her sweet face!
