Anna and Cody’s story is a special one to me…Cody and I went to college together and he actually married Mike and I back in 2008 :) So when Cody asked me to photograph their wedding I was beyond excited and honored!!
Their beautiful wedding took place on July 16 in downtown Charlotte, NC with everyone getting ready at the historic Dunhill Hotel, the ceremony at historic St. Mary’s Chapel and the reception following at RiRa’s, which is such a fun bar and restaurant with a great atmosphere. The day started out cloudy and it looked almost as if it could rain, but it didn’t and the sun peeped out just after the ceremony, which I think is good luck :)
Cody and Anna, thank you so much for allowing me to document your wedding day—it was beautiful and, just like you wanted, I’m pretty sure everyone had a great time :)
Anna’s dress is gorgeous and she purchased it in Charlottesville, VA at West Main Bridal
Anna and Cody held their reception at RiRa’s
in downtown Charlotte and it was so much fun!
Gotta wrap up the post with an awesome reception shot of Cody and all the guys singing “You’ve lost that lovin’ feeling” to Anna :)
Lots of shooting and editing going on over here and I wanted to share a quick sneak peek of Cody and Anna’s Charlotte St. Mary’s Chapel wedding…more to follow soon! :)
Two weeks ago I posted a sneak peek of Diarmuid and Chrissy’s wedding…I am so excited to share the full post today! Long post, so be warned! When I first met Diarmuid and Chrissy at their Santa Monica Pier engagement session and witnessed first hand just how truly head-over-heels in love they are, I knew this would be a fabulous wedding!!
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention all the wonderful and amazing people who came together to create this beautiful wedding for Chrissy and Diarmuid:
Ceremony musician: Jennifer Argenti (310.592.6417)
Cocktail hour musicians: Geoff Earley (216.870.4265)
Officiant: Alegra M. Bartzat (817.851.7187)

The day started out on the beautiful Santa Barbara riviera overlooking the Pacific…
Dear Chrissy and Diarmuid…thank you for letting us be a part of your beautiful day!! Hope you’re getting settled in Montreal!! xoxo!!
This past weekend I documented an oh-so-gorgeous wedding at the Granada Theater in Santa Barbara…here is a quick sneak peek of the adorable bride and groom :)
When I recently had the chance to photograph Anna’s bridal portraits at Riverbench winery in Santa Maria, I was thrilled! I love bridal portrait sessions and they are not as common on the West coast as they are on the East coast. I decided to shed some light on the subject! :)
Anna’s bridal session was the perfect opportunity for her to capture some moments of just herself, instead of her and her now husband! This was such a fun afternoon…
Julia’s session was AWEsome! We scoured this amazing property in Eastern North Carolina and had a great time…this was a wonderful opportunity for Julia to try out makeup and hair and her dress!
And in this Anna’s case, she wanted to do a hair/makeup trial run as well and get to see the venue property before the big day! So fun! :)
