City Club Editorial Part 1

Each year we get a specific opportunity to promote Wilmington as a destination for weddings. This year we are focusing our energy on The City Club. This post is more of a teaser of whats to come for the event on Jan 14th with Courtyards & Cobblestones.  We really wanted to allude to the mood of the design.  A mysterious and romantic feel.  So this shoot is very much in that direction. We will partner with some other professionals and our friends at Kickstand Events will be designing a version of what a celebration at this 1800's era mansion could look like! 


Come see us on Jan 14th in Downtown Wilmington and keep your eyes peeled for the corresponding post following the event with all the images from our set up there!

So enjoy these lovely film scans from our wedding shoot with Kickstand Events!

Charleston Engagement Session

Meet Lea and Cliff!  I had the opportunity to photograph Cliff's sister's wedding a couple years ago as well as her engagement session in San Diego!  It was great to re-connect with his family and get to know Lea's as well! It was about 100 degrees this afternoon!  Thanks for toughing it out with me you two!
