My goodness, Emma and Pat were SO fun to work with during this session, it’s hard to consider it work. When we started chatting with Emma and Pat, we knew that working with them would be fun. Not just fun, but easy, too. These two were game for almost anything, and their love for each other showed through everything we did with them. We started off the evening with a super easy going home photo shoot, where they made cookies together (and were probably won the award for most adorable cookie makers out there). Then we went to uptown to grab a beautiful sunset behind the Charlotte Skyline for their engagement shoot. Finally, we ended the night with some awesome experimental shots off of the Hawthorne Street bridge. These two rocked it every step of the way, and we cannot wait to shoot their wedding next year at the Twickenham House, where we shot Becky and Ryan’s wedding.
When we do at-home sessions, we typically ask couples to do activities to keep them busy and work together. Emma and Pat chose to bake cookies. Can you blame them? Cookies are delicious. And fun to make. And also delicious. They also wanted to include Dobby, their adorable, yet unenthused cat. We’re cat people, so we understand the struggle of getting a cat to pose with pictures. They’re going to look miserable any way you hold them. Dobby managed to add some cute into the mix.
One thing that Emma and Pat really wanted for their engagement photos was to feature the Charlotte skyline. While neither of them are actually from Charlotte, this is now their home. We lucked out with gorgeous weather and a beautiful sunset for some really sweet Charlotte skyline engagement photos that are just asking to be printed and hung on their walls!
