engaged couple hugs on rooftop during Uptown Charlotte engagement session

Uptown Charlotte Engagement Session || Shelby + David

Shelby and David are so much fun! Shelby and I have mutual friends and when she got engaged, she called me to photograph their wedding and I’m SO glad she did! I love their style and overall have such a good vibe! We laughed so much through our session (I know I say that every time, but like, REALLY we laughed so much). That’s the kind of relationship I want with all of my incredible couples. Shelby said after receiving these photos, even her dad teared up looking at them (but, can we blame him?!). I just adore these two SO much and I can’t wait for you to scroll through their incredible Uptown Charlotte engagement session!

Uptown Charlotte Engagement Session

Charlotte has so many incredible spots for photos. It’s always hard to decide where we’ll go for a session. When Shelby and I began talking, we kept coming back to the idea of Uptown Charlotte. There’s some truly beautiful architecture in the area – and the views of the city can’t be beat. For Shelby and David’s first look, we explored some of the buildings in Uptown. Can we talk about Shelby’s incredible two piece dress for the first part of the shoot?! I’m still obsessed with it. She looks amazing!!! Afterwards, we headed to one of the parks in the area and captured their second look. We ended the session on a rooftop in the area to capture the skyline – and Shelby and David popped some bubbly to enjoy, too! It was the perfect way to wrap up our time together in Uptown Charlotte.

I can’t wait to celebrate their wedding with them at Duke Mansion in November!! Until then, enjoy these seriously gorgeous portraits of Shelby and David!
