Joselyn + Nathan | Charlotte, NC Wedding

A few weeks ago I had the extreme pleasure of witnessing and capturing a beautiful couple say “I Do!” in Charlotte, North Carolina. I met Joselyn a few weeks prior to her big day at Panera Bread Company where we chatted about the details of her big day.  During this meeting I immediately knew she was a bride I wanted to work with.  Being an elopement and intimate ceremony photographer you don’t get brides and grooms beating down your door like most traditional wedding photographers do. It’s just natural for most people to want a lavish weddings filled with a large bridal party and hundreds of guests. And while those weddings are absolutely beautiful to attend, for me as a photographer, it’s not my ideal wedding to shoot.  So anytime I have the opportunity meet and work with a couple that are looking for something more intimate I get excited.  Joselyn was so laid back about her big day that I knew our meeting was fate.

She and her husband Nathan were true dream clients to work with. It was my first time participating in a first look for a wedding couple and we had so much fun capturing just the two of them in love. As Joselyn tapped Nathan on his shoulder he eagerly greeted her with a loving smile.

Their ceremony was held in the beautiful Sugaw Creek Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, North Carolina as they were surrounded by those nearest and dearest to them both. The ceremony was followed by a reception at Joselyn’s parent’s home where traditional African fare was enjoyed by all.

I’m so excited for Nathan and Joselyn’s future as a couple. If their marriage is any indication of what their wedding was like I know their home will be filled with lots of love, laughter and good food!
