Real Cornelius NC Wedding Shoot.

I virtually met Shelby on Instagram, where she had heard of DNP from a friend who had done a boudoir session with me. Her and her husband Brendon had recently gotten hitched in California in a small ceremony, yet the two loves of their lives weren't in attendance. So naturally, a post wedding photo shoot had to happen, including Charlotte and Behryn this time.

The beautiful couple got dressed up again - in their same wedding attire - and met me at the Antiquity bridge, with the pups in their wedded finest as well. As we dodged car after car - because who knew this neighborhood bridge was the place to be on a Friday evening - we made the best of the best kind of family portraits. Once Charlotte and Behryn were all treated and paparazzi-ed out, I had the opportunity to do a little one on one with the newlyweds.

These are the moments where I know God puts me in specific places at specific times for specific reasons, no matter how trivial. Our session started much later in the evening than planned, so our original idea to hit up Jetton Park after the bridge got nixed due to lighting. We stayed at the bridge all night, and literally two steps next to it, on the sidewalk of a busy neighborhood street, were the most beautiful soft purple ferns and fields, perfectly backdropped by a stunning fall sunset.
