ballet slippers & soccer cleats
Jesse & Brian are the kind of couple you want to get to know. And go on camping trips with. And have over for a Sunday BBQ. And, lucky for me… photograph.
Like peanut butter and jelly, and scrambled eggs with hot sauce (oh, wait, is that just me?), these two belong together. They are such naturals in front of the camera, and aren’t afraid to have a good time and make goofy faces (and, I love goofy faces).
When we were discussing ideas for their engagement shoot, Jesse, an amazingly talented dancer and dance instructor, asked me if we could take a few shots of she and Brian “dressed up”. I’m a kid at heart, so naturally, I’m always down with some dressin’ up.
Jesse showed up in a tutu. Brian was wearing a soccer uniform. This was gonna be good.
We spent a warm, Summer evening together at some of my favorite spots around Charlotte, including the swings at Freedom Park and the vintage shops in Plaza Midwood. Capturing the essence of all that is Jesse & Brian was incredibly simple. I just sat back and let them be them, and enjoyed every moment of watching their love unfold in quirky little ways and several hugs & kisses.
Here are a few of my favorites from our time together.
