A Beautiful Wedding & Ceremony to follow at The Lofts At Union Square // June 4th, 2016

The Branding Experience



I'm a NC based brand photographer (but I love to travel for work+fun). Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, and in another life (maybe this one) I'd probably move to Waco, TX!

I'm always down to try a new local coffee shop (even better if they have lavender latte), and working on mastering the perfect at home brew recipe. 


Almost a month ago, Tania & Junior said their vows and committed their lives to each other. It was a beautiful wedding day. We started off at The Lofts at Union Square where the some of the girls got ready, then we went to the Blo Dry Club in High Point for hair! Once everyone had their hair done, we went back to the Lofts to get dressed & for the first look of Tania & her father. After, we drove to the church that she grew up going to for the ceremony. It was a emotional time & a beautiful ceremony with a progression of congratulations as the couple escaped to their limo to head to the reception! Stay tuned for a post about their reception! <3

The first look between Tania and her father was sweet. Though, as a photographer I see a lot of very emotional father daughter exchanges through other wedding galleries. I want to photograph one myself. I was asked what to do during this time, and that caught me off guard because I feel like as a father you’d want to spend some time with your daughter before she is married. Tell her she’s beautiful. Give her hugs and kisses. Is that just me? Who knows! Either way it was a sweet time for me.
