Uptown Charlotte Engagement Session | Carrie & Michael
Can we talk about this Charlotte Engagement Session for a minute….First off, how adorable are they?? Secondly – Carrie seriously NAILED the style guide portion, and thirdly – are they not the happiest people?! Carrie and Michael are getting married next May, at The Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden and the countdown is ON! When I met with Carrie and Michael a few months back, I immediately wanted to work with her. Her kind nature, outgoing personality and love for Michael are infectious. Literally hours could pass speaking with her before you actually took notice that your drink was empty, or the sun was setting. She is enticing. You WANT to be around her. When Carrie and Michael met on Match.com little did they know, they already knew each other somewhat. He sent her a message saying he was moving to Charlotte for 6 months for work and wanted to meet some new people. Carrie had just talked to a guy at work who was moving to Charlotte for 6 months –was it too ironic to be the same person? She asked what company he was working for and he said Citco…which is the same company as hers. Little did Michael know, Carrie was the HR girl who he was in communication with to facilitate his transfer to Charlotte. She did his transfer letter, set up his housing, etc. Once he arrived a couple days later, they met up for lunch, then went to a concert a couple days later, became gym buddies…and the rest was history. Yup…match made in Heaven.
For their engagement session, we wanted to capture their love for Uptown, as well as her love for the country. We started the night walking all over Charlotte, NC and ended with a drive up to Fisher Farms in Davidson, NC. The weather, sunset, and champagne all were perfect. I am so excited to continue to get to know Carrie and Michael more over the next year, and cannot wait to see these two said I do!!
