hannah & dalton {engaged | charlotte, nc}

Hello friends! I have missed you all! We took a mini hiatus this summer to really soak up our kiddos before they go back to school. Time flies. Now, within the next couple of weeks they will be in school and our baby will be a kindergartener!

We couldn’t wait to share one of our favorite engagement sessions! Hannah & Dalton are getting married this October and we cannot wait to shoot their wedding! We hung out all around our turf in Noda to shoot their super fun session!

we probably laughed the entire session. as you can tell, they are no fun at all.. hahah yea right!true story. i love this wall at smelly cat coffee. when steven and i were doing our own engagement pics we took pics on this same wall 7 years ago…between hannah’s eyes, hair and smile she is SO stunning! i mean not only is she beautiful but super crazy sweet!both hannah and dalton are really into music. hannah sings and dalton plays the guitarwith both hannah and dalton being so musically inclined we headed to a little bar to let them show us their mad skills.

we had a blast shooting their engagement session and can’t believe their wedding is around the corner! hope you had a great Monday!



Donna Bryson - Oh Hannah, I just love all the amazing pics of you and Dalton. You both make a beautiful couple and praying you will always be so happy.
And I know as long as you keep Christ in the center, you will be so and ride out any storm that comes your way….

hannah & dalton {wedding | dallas, nc} » Smitten and Hooked Blog - […] and worship at their church and they showed me some of their mad skills at their engagement session {here}! As a surprise to Hannah, once she made it down the aisle, Dalton sang her the most beautiful song […]

Barbara Logan Killian - Love all the pictures of Dalton and Hannah. They are a beautiful couple. I wish them the best in there new life together. Hope I can make it to your wedding.

Danielle N James Acken - My absolute fav of yours yet!

marice & robbie {engaged}

tomorrow is marice and robbie’s big day! we seriously cannot wait for the amazingness that will happen! We had to share their engagement session! It was right before summer when it was still just a tad bit cool but it was crazy windy and felt great! We explored throughout Charlotte and all around the airport. Both Marice and Robbie travel basically 24/7 for work so we thought the most appropriate place to start their session is at the airport….then we headed to the aviation museum which was really awesome too! check it out.

I had never been to the aviation museum but we toured all through it with Marice and Robbie and it was so neat! Not only was it a great little spot to shoot in but it is also somewhere I want to take our kids to learn all about the history of aviation!Happy Wedding Day tomorrow Marice and Robbie!!!
