Most of us grew up fortunate. You know, like clothes-on-your-back, food-on-the-table fortunate. And most of us grew up very fortunate...playing sports, back-to-school clothes (kind of wish I was still in school for that!) and parents that would even move into a better school district so you could have a great education. Enter: Nikki and myself. I grew up down the street from Nikki, as in, 3 houses down the street. We were fortunate to live in a neighborhood where there were a few other girls who could play after school and borrow textbooks when you'd left yours at school and just a good, all around fun group of friends. We rode bikes together and played cops and robbers, played on swingsets and occasionally enjoyed playing with Barbies and Legos. Flash forward a certain number of years later and Nikki is getting married and asked me to photograph her wedding...yay! It's so special for me to photograph a wedding like this...I always strive to get to know my clients as it helps me to tell their story in a much more close knit almost family-like way. So it's exciting that I know Nikki's story and I get to help document another chapter of her life, with Vance :)
A few weeks ago I met Nikki and Vance on a Sunday morning in downtown Charlotte for their engagement session. After we spent some time in Charlotte, we headed up the road to Concord, where Vance's family has an awesome piece of property and my favorite: cows!
Nikki and Vance, thank you for allowing me to capture your engagement session and I cannot wait for your wedding!!!
