Megan & Ryan {wedding part 1 | Morning Glory Farms}

I know you aren’t supposed to have favorites but the reality is we do. How do we go about picking a favorite? This year has been so good to us, wedding after wedding we come back with pictures we are so excited about.

When we met Megan and Ryan we instantly fell in love with them. Hilarious and genuine, with smiles that could light up a room. When we talked about their wedding day I knew it was going to be beautiful. We love shooting at Morning Glory Farms. It is a gorgeous place and especially in the fall with the leaves and the light. Megan and Ryan’s style is  bohemian chic anthropologie, yes this day is a dream come true.

Meet our friends, Megan and Ryan.

In memory of Lewis.

Today I had a completely different blog planned. I had planned on showing this beautiful wedding we shot a couple months ago but instead I chose to celebrate a beautiful life that left us far too soon.

On Sunday, Steven and I were on the way to a photo session and he was telling me that a guy he grew up with was in a terrible car accident and passed away on Saturday. I thought, that is terrible. As soon as he uttered Lewis’ name, my jaw hit the floor. Not only is he a friend my husband grew up with but I happened to have shot his wedding back in 2010 when I was starting out in photography.

Lewis was just a fun loving guy. Always had a smile on his face and was completely smitten by his gorgeous bride, Katie. My heart breaks for her and their whole family.

If we ever realize just how important our job is, the time is now. Documenting people’s lives and special moments. Pictures that people will cling to and cherish. This is why we do what we do. This is why we value ourselves as photographers and take our job so serious.

I wanted to make a little video from their wedding to share with Katie and their entire family to celebrate Lewis’ life.

Life is short friends and you absolutely should never ever take one day for granite. Tell the people you love that you love them. Hug them like you mean it. Take every moment as a treasure because before you know it, it’s gone.

xo,

Lucy & Steven

Kellee Capece - Beautiful video!!!! Many prayers to his family !!!

Debbie Bosmom - What a beautiful tribute! I know all to well how we are not guaranteed tomorrow!

Kendra & Sean on film

So several weeks ago we debuted Kendra and Sean’s gorgeous wedding held uptown at the Ritz in Charlotte {click here to check it out}. To say working with Kendra and Sean was like a dream come true would be an understatement, we absolutely adore them so so much!

About a week before their wedding Kendra called me and said “I want a video but everyone is booked probably.” After I checked around with some local videographers, she wrote me and said, “I was kinda hoping you would say you can do it.” I laughed and then I smiled. Diving into the world of video is something that is so different from photography. I had only played with video for my kids milestones and then when I went to Africa. But, being the eager beaver I am, I thought this is my opportunity  I had been waiting for, LETS DO IT!

I learned a lot and had so much fun diving into another element of creativity during the wedding. This isn’t something we will be doing full time by any means, but it is something we will offer to our clients, a fusion between the photography and videography of their wedding with the signature Smitten & Hooked style.

So, without further adieu…..Kendra and Sean’s wedding day.

janell bitterly - Absolutely amazing, so happy for Kendra and Sean, they can cherish that moment for the rest of their lives. So precious. Fabulous work felt like I was actually there. Just stunning. congrats you crazy loving beautiful couple. Hope to see you guys over Christmas will be in town :)

Melissa Preston - So incredible….bride, groom and photographer are amazing!

Lynn Crothers - This gave me goosebumps!!! Wish I had this at my wedding, b/c this was ah-mazing! I didn’t even realize they were doing video and loved how all the important moments were summed up to show your laughter and love.

Alisha Bell - So cute!! We will need one of these from our wedding ☺️

Nan Goodman Mueller - Wow! This is so cool!

Kendra Barnett Lyons - Lucy Parker Randall! Stop the presses, this is awesome. Is there anything you can’t do?! We LOVE it. Thank you thank you for helping me in my last-minute bridal panic and giving us this beautiful memory to treasure. You may want to add #hero to your bio somewhere. Love you guys so much. xoxoxo

So many great “shots” that enveloped the gamut of the emotions, the setting, the participants and the experience. Jennifer and John wanted to share this special day with friends, family and loved ones and now they can “share the love” for years to come through the magic of the lens.

Thank you so much for doing an awesome job on John and Jenn’s wedding. Without a doubt your pictures are some of the best I have ever seen. The memories that we will have of our son’s wedding will be with us forever!! What impressed me the most was your enthusiasm that you both had for this joyous occasion. We felt that you were part of the family and that you were just as excited as we were. The pictures took my breath away. The pictures of Jenn with John while he was blindfolded were beyond any words I can say. You captured all the love Jenn has for John on her face. You captured all of the excitement, joy, friendship, fun and love that went on during the whole day and night. We are blessed to have these pictures to treasure. If you ever need a recommendation just have them call me!! :-) Sincerely, Sharri McMillian.
