Kelly & Charlie – Part Two – The Food Fight Engagement Session!

For the second half of Kelly & Charlie’s Engagement Session we met up at their house for a good ol’ fashioned FOOD FIGHT!!!! Both of them are really into cooking and I’m constantly seeing delicious food shots on their Facebook pages, so when Kelly told me this was what she was thinking of doing I was immediately on board. We got back from shooting some amazing night shots on the roof of The Soapbox and they changed into something a little more comfortable. Thankfully there was a wall separating me from them so I was safe and clean and ready to watch this craziness go down. I loved everything about this! At one point after they were completely covered Kelly said ‘I think there is sugar in my ear’ to which Charlie replied ‘That’s because I’ve been whispering into it all day’. Priceless.

Kelly & Charlie’s Engagement in Wilmington, NC – Part one.

Meet Kelly & Charlie! My Rock Star Couple from Wilmington, NC. We basically had an all day Engagement Session starting with a champagne picnic on the other side of the Cape Fear River. This was my first time meeting Charlie and he immediately won me over. Not just with the simple fact that he is a nice guy but watching how much he adores Kelly and hangs on her every move. They are perfect for each other because that same look is on his face is the same look on her’s. High Five to you both!
Here are some of my favorites from the day.

All Roads Lead to Rome – Part 1.

At least the road that I was on led me there and it was unbelievable! Rome…I love that you will forever be the first stamp in my passport (even if the customs guy stamped my passport on the 3rd page). We rented this amazing little apartment near Campo de’ Fiori, one of the many famous squares in the heart of Rome. During the day it was home to an Italian Market (Just plain Market if you’re yourself Italian) where you could buy anything from pasta to espresso pots. The neighborhood itself had everything you’d want. Tons of shopping, cafes and restaurants to choose from. I think I ate pizza at least once everyday and the wine, OH The Wine! I know I wrote this before but this would be such an amazing place to shoot a wedding or just any couple session really. Every angle looks like it’s right out of a postcard!
I shot over 1600 images so I’m going to have to break this up into a few posts 🙂 Here is a taste of Rome through my eyes.

I Was Born to Love you.

This time last week I was in Rome. That’s so weird to write but I love that it’s true. I would most likely be heading back to the apartment after another jaw dropping dinner, passing one alley after the next that looked like a scene in a postcard. I shot plenty and I’m working on that post as I type this but I wanted to share this image because it really got me excited about this coming Engagement & Wedding Season! I found this on one of those walks after dinner and it, like all the amazing backdrops in Rome, made me want to shoot a wedding there! Any Takers!?!

Jess & Jesse – The Wedding.

Meet Jess & Jesse. My amazing DC couple! They were married at the Pearl S. Buck Estate in Perkasie, PA and we were lucky enough to get just the right amount of sun on this overcast day for a sweet, outside summer wedding. Two things I loved…The look on Jess’ Parent’s faces during the first dance and Jesse’s famous version of The Robot.
Check out some of my favorites from the day!


Kickass Robot Battle! Jesse won 🙂

Jess & Jesse – The Teaser.

Here is a quick teaser from Jess & Jesse’s Wedding before they head off to beautiful Italy. This shot was at the very end of the night. We stepped away from the party tent and into the trees for this sweet sweet moment.
