Andres + Jessica’s Wedding

Andres and Jessica. Perfect.
I am soooo pleased to have been invited as a guest and as the photographer of Andres and Jessica’s wedding. I became friends with Andres and Jessica when I first met them for their engagement session (Quick reminder: Engagement Photos!) almost a year ago. SOMEHOW I managed to not know this sweet couple although they know EVERYONE I know, including my boyfriend. What the heck. I feel like I missed out on a great friendship all these years! But since we know all of the same peeps, it made this wedding one of the most fun to shoot. What a blast!!!

Well, lets get started! This is the story of Andres and Jessica’s wedding day… Here we go!


The venue was the Doubletree in Charlotte, NC. All of the folks here were so accommodating and helpful.  Big ups to the wedding planner (someone please remind me of her name?) for this wedding.. She killed it! I know that wedding planning is no easy task, and I totally respect those who can handle the job!

The wedding is getting close!


HOW FREAKING AMAZING IS THIS DRESS??
I want one just like it for my wedding! Hey Jess, let me get that! Haha!


While Jess and I were waiting for the ceremony, we knocked out some quick bridal shots. Doesn’t she look gorgeous? Thanks Genna Poletti Makeup Artistry for the insanely stunning makeup. I know you made Jessica and the girls extremely happy.
Now it’s time to go! It’s time for the wedding!


I love these shots from the ceremony! My two favorites, although it’s hard to choose!


Awesome group shot! Photogenic bunch makes my job easy!



Awww… 🙂


After the wedding was the cocktail hour where everyone got to know each other and of course, get some cocktails!

Jessica and Andres got their own little private quiet time during the cocktail hour to be alone and spend a few minutes together as newlyweds! I love these!

And the fun begins!! Reception time! Try not to be overwhelmed by the amount of reception photos I am posting… I know it is excessive but I just loved this wedding so much and had a blast! I just want to share the fun with photo memories!
This is Jessica and Andres’ first dance as newlyweds… Too cute!

She got him!


Time to throw the bouquet and garter! That kid was so stoked… He cracked me up! I’m so glad he caught it haha!


This is my absolute favorite dance sequence I have ever shot. Isn’t it the most adorable thing you have ever ever ever seen? Oh my gosh. Can’t get over it. Hahaha… awww..

Finally a few more favorites from the rest of the night.
I had such a blast with Andres and Jessica on their wedding night. Thanks again to Mr. & Mrs. L for allowing me to be a part of it!!!
Goodnight everyone!

Tepy’s 70s Disco Dance Party

Meet Tepy & Matt.
Over the weekend, I traveled to DC to document Tepy’s birthday bash that her husband, Matt, threw for her. The photo above was taken in their living room after Matt’s living room-to-70s dance club transformation was complete. After bringing in the dance floor, the professional lights, the DJ stand, and traveling a FANTASTIC (hehe…) photographer from North Carolina, this DC disco party was ready to roll!

Pretty good disguise for a living room, eh?

A few of the disco party-goers all decked out in their 70s gear! I love these!

Snacks are in the kitchen!

And drinks are downstairs!


The most elaborate display of birthday cupcakes I’ve seen in a while!  Digging it!

What’s a theme party without a photobooth setup? I am having a blast sifting through these photos…. I’m sure you can only imagine! Hehehe….

Hahaha… still laughing over these!
Time to bring this post to an end… a group shot of party-goers that happened to be downstairs at the time:

 A great night, great people, and a great party. I hope people are talking about this one for a long time!!
That’s it for me! xx
