Hi guys!! Last weekend I had the privilege of shooting Mike and Johanna’s wedding on May 5, 2012. It was SUCH a beautiful day. They got married aboard the “N 2 Deep” yacht (Championship Yacht Charters) on Lake Norman, NC. We were picked up from Travis Pointe in Mooresville, NC which is an AMAZING venue in itself. That property is just incredible, and a great option if you are looking to get married in the LKN area. While I am based out of Washington, DC, I have a special attachment to LKN and love it more than any place in the world.
Let’s start with the dress and the details of the day. The colors of the wedding were Carolina blue and white. This combo is so gorgeous and one of my favorites!
Check out this amazing dress! I love how casual yet completely elegant and beautiful it was. Just wait til you see it on Johanna… wow!
I am obsessed with these GUESS shoes!
How adorable are these flower girl baskets?
These flowers are SO beautiful. The florist really knocked it out of the park. I also love the touch of the bedazzles in the bouquet and boutonniere and the carolina blue bow to tie the flowers to the theme.
Drum roll, please! Ceremony time! Here are a few highlights from the ceremony.
Everyone loves flower girls and ring bearers! These are some of the cutest I’ve seen!
Cue Johanna! Mike sees his bride for the first time. Aww! Always my favorite part!
What a radiant smile!
Adorable flower girl picking up petals during the ceremony.. hehehe…
You may kiss the bride!
I now present Johanna and Mike Bohn!
Meet the wedding party!
Now it is time for our bride and groom to relax and enjoy some drinks together and for the reception to begin!
Meet DJ Bob! We have worked other weddings together so it was great to be reunited with another vendor! Always cool to see familiar faces.
Okay… I am going to give you fair warning to brace yourself for this next set. It is potentially the cutest thing ever to hit this earth. Flower girls eating strawberries and cupcakes. See if you can handle it…
Hahaha.. Oh man. I love those two.
Check out this killer sunset from the front of the boat!
A beautiful first dance!
As I am writing this, I am laughing recalling this. This was definitely a fun bunch! And here are a few more dancing party people to top off the night.
And the clouds broke just enough for the Supermoon to light up the sky. An amazing end to an amazing night. Thanks so much to Mike and Johanna for letting me be a part of their special day. I really had a blast hanging with y’all! Best of luck to you both!

How could I NOT visit the lake and these pups on a beautiful, beautiful day like today?
Sending picture updates of her dog, Pancake (alias: Brenda, Tippy), to my twin sister Genna who has moved out to California. Little Pan even flashed a smile thinking of mama…
Scraggly little thing!! Do you guys remember when she was just a tiny pup?
Hehe…. Well, she has definitely transformed into a stinky little lake dog…
Heheh… aww… these guys melt my heart. Here is Anne, the looker of the family:
Can’t wait for spring! Bring on more of this awesome weather!!
Scott & Christina!
A mutual friend, Jim Graziano of snapWerx commercial photography, hooked me up with this perfect little couple! After a day of SNOW (????!) in Davidson, I feared that this engagement session would have to be rescheduled.. On the contrary, we could not have asked for more perfect weather! It was cold, but it is December, so what do you expect?
What charming smiles these two have!!!
^^ This series is too sweet!
We had a gorgeous sunset tonight.. Did anyone else catch it? Wow..! Romantic…
I give you.. the Brockman’s!! This fabulous lady was my SECOND grade teacher. Can you believe that?? These are her kids.. so grown up! I haven’t seen this bunch in nearly ten years… Incredible. It was so nice to see them and to hang out with these awesome gals. The girls were sooo fun and hysterical. They absolutely loved Genna’s puppy… there are pictures of her littered throughout my blog- I know you’ve seen the pup before.
How pretty are they??!
Laugh it up, goofballs! 🙂
Awww, OH MY GOD. So weird and awesome!! I love her so much!
So after this little mini shoot on Lake Norman, we all went out to eat. We decided on Brixx in Birkdale so the little pup could come along. Here is a shot of my mom and Mrs. Brockman! They are both a bunch of hotties!
Beautiful, beautiful day. It better not be another ten years before I see this crew again…!

Hey guys! Busy weekend for Genna and I.. shooting Brianna Little on Saturday and Arsenio Clemens on Sunday! Lucky for you, this entry is starring the fabulous Brianna!!! She booked a senior portrait shoot with me and to my wonderful surprise, she is also an INCREDIBLY talented DANCER! And yall know how I love dancers… !!! Yessss!
While we were at it, we decided to do some killer dance shots for Brianna’s portfolio. Genna grabbed a few behind the scenes shots for our Lake Norman location.. Check Brianna out! She practically floats! So graceful..!
And heres to me working my magic:
So after nailing that location, we headed to our next spot in Davidson to knock out a few more dance shots.. Beautiful!
Alright, that’s it for Brianna Little. I told you she was fantastic. Check back for Arsenio’s Gaga-inspired Glam shoot!
Lake Norman, NC
Today, I headed out to the lake to visit my dad, his fair lady, and his zoo of canines. Wielding only my fisheye, I thought it would be fun to harass the pups for a little while… and it sure was.
There is nothing cuter than a smiling dog. This is Grinch Feet.
The mutant chihuahua sewer rat with a face only a mother could love…
At least he is charming.
Grinch Feet receives a treat of some sort, while Snaggletooth watches with envy from afar….
Grinch Feet retires to her favorite place, with a belly full of treats.
So happy to get out there to see my family and see these chaotic creatures. They hold such a huge place in my heart. =)
