Hello couples! I am based in Charlotte, NC and I travel to different locations to your surprise proposal locations, save the date engagement photoshoot sessions, and your weddings of course! Most of the time my couples hire me to do their proposals and go to sign on for their wedding days.
The following are some of the best places to take couples pictures around Charlotte.
1. One of my requested location is Freedom Park. Freedom park is beautiful by the bridge and the pond are very popular for couple to propose or to do engagement sessions. The photo below is by the pond in Freedom park in the morning but sunset sessions are beautiful there as well.
2. My second couple photoshoot place request is grassy fields. I always recommend this park, which has a gorgeous availability for sunset session as long as the weather permits. Speaking of sunsets, these sessions have to be scheduled one hour before sun sets to make sure we have enough lighting for that golden color that we all see on photos.
And third most popular request is Jetton Park in Cornelius. This park is beautiful at different times of the year and it gives the couple the chance to choose a time when the sun is setting or rising. The water from the lake gives you a beautiful backdrop for a different look for those who love the water. This is taken by the "beach" area and yes couples love to add their dogs to their photoshoots.
Some couples like the city and industrial look of uptown Charlotte and small weddings are one of my popular requested locations. Uptown Charlotte has a lot of locations for different themes. This couple had their small wedding at a local restaurant because they wanted an industrial city look and this photo of them at the restaurant's bar was the number one photo they wanted of them.
Micro weddings are great and have gained popularity due to their budget and more intimate vibe for the couple celebrating with the closest friends and family that live near and far.
This was an outdoor vows renewal at sunset. Sunset is that what we photographers call the golden hour because the sun is golden when capturing the subjects. Couples love this time because it makes for very pretty pictures. Sunset photos need to be planned carefully and with excellent timing. If you would like a session at this time of the day, let's plan it accordingly.
The photo below is also a beautiful location. There are so many other locations that you may prefer such as Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens. These gardens are gorgeous for any occasion, one thing to remember is that a location like this does require you the client, to pay for photographs permission fee. So make sure to contact them and pay it before I show up to do your session.

I am currently booking weddings for 2023 and 2024! I have been doing weddings since 2019 and they are some of my favorite to capture. Most of my clients meet me from their proposal or engagement sessions. Once they get familiar with my style they hire me to do their wedding. I am very laid back yet professional. I tend to do a lot of micro weddings but I have done large weddings of up to 200 guests. My turn around for weddings is usually three weeks sometimes less. If you like my style and know your date and venue, don't hesitate to message me and let's chat about your special day.
I look forward to capturing your milestones starting from your proposals to your weddings. Contact me and let's chat about your event and let's get you on my calendar!
