Hello and welcome to my blog!
I had the honor and privilege of meeting Brittni & Emanuel at the Southern Noir Bridal Experience in Charlotte in February. This couple exudes love and as soon as I met them, I knew that we would hit it off and that they would be great candidates for me to capture on camera.
Meeting them was the result of my step of faith. I had never participated in a wedding show as a vendor before. I was beyond nervous but the excitement of that one day gave me something to look forward to. I spent over 2 months trying to get my booth set up together. I wanted to present something that was simple yet, opulent. I wanted to put my best foot forward and make a great first impression.
I remember praying on the way from Raleigh NC to Charlotte NC with my partner and saying “Lord, if I could just book one wedding, it would be worth it”.
So the big day came and it was amazing. We arrived the night before at the hotel venue and stayed there so that we could have a mini vacay and be as prepared as possible. Our set up was very easy and turned out amazing. See below.
We met many amazing couples and other awesome vendors. During our time there, we met Brittni & Emanuel. I immediately knew upon chatting with them and them seeing my work that we were a good match. Fast forward at the event, Brittni & Emanuel had already left and while standing in the last 30 mins of the event, I received a text from them saying that they wanted to book me as their wedding photographer and get the ball running. I immediately smiled at the favor God.
Fast forward to this past weekend when they drove up to Raleigh for their engagement session at the Stateview Hotel on the campus of NC State University. This couple was beyond beautiful. The aesthetic of the shoot was upscale and glam and they were the quintessence of that. Check out the imagery below to see how they slayed. They are #meanttobeatty
