Susannah and Kyle’s Engagement Session

Saturday, April 20th, 2013

This was the first time I have been able to shoot inside Richmond Senior High School.  Susannah and Kyle met each other and became a couple here.  It was pretty awesome to photograph their engagement photos at the school. A sincere thanks to Principal Mckenzie for allowing us access to the school.

I've been wanting to shoot portraits by the lockers for quite some time.

Seniors have the chance to paint the tiles on the ceiling of classrooms. The room we staged our gear and wardrobe just happened to have Susannah's painted tile.  It's the NC State one just above their heads.

Ashley and Josh’s Engagement Session

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Ashley and Josh won a free engagement session from me when they attended the Piedmont Bridal Show held at the Cole Auditorium in Hamlet, NC. I was a bit nervous due to both being photographers themselves. We hung out at Hinson Lake for a bit and had a swell time.

I really dig this area of the lake because of the back lighting.

Casey and David’s Engagement Session

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Casey, David and myself had two engagement sessions in Hamlet. We shot some images for their “Save The Date” annoucement, some individual portraits, as well as their couples shots. These sessions are really awesome when both are as excited about shooting as I am.

I really love this bridge across the street from the train depot.

We had only moments to get these neat shadows while in the train depot.
