Fashionable Urban Engagement Session | Midwood Neighborhood | Charlotte, NC

Posted on January 23, 2016

When I first heard from this gorgeous couple, the call actually came from Matt and his British accent took me straight back to my joyous time at Oxford. Then when I met him and Kelli, my photographer’s heart went all aflutter. They are beautiful, cool, devoted to one another and absolutely hilarious. And even better, they LIKE being photographed so the walls came down so much quicker. We moved straight into the intimacy of the shoot and were playing and getting the coolest shots right from the start.

For their engagement session, we chose the Midwood neighborhood in Charlotte specifically for the crosswalk in the first image in the post. I had seen the graphic painting on a previous trip and when I suggested the idea, they were all in! We also found a fence that looked straight out of Dr. Seuss and I went a little closer to photographer’s heaven. We wandered back alleys, climbed on buildings, and I, of course, played on the ground more than a few times to get some really cool angles. I even dodged some traffic.

About halfway through our shoot, we stopped at Whiskey Warehouse for lunch and the obligatory whiskey flight. If you haven’t gone, go. It’s an awesome place! Then we headed back to Kelli and Matt’s house, met up with their dog, Capone, had a cup of tea and played until the sun went down.

 

They are quite simply gorgeous in both looks and personality and I cannot wait to shoot their wedding at the Biltmore.
