I remember meeting Erica Stawick of Erica Stawick Events over lunch and having my eyes and ears burn with excitement as she told me about her plans to bring this awesome couple’s style and vision to life. Which is probably why I included WAY to many decor shots of the reception. Between the design and execution, Erica and the vendors she brought together, KILLED this wedding. You’ll see!
Bo and Dan are two of the most down to earth genuine people I’ve ever met in my life. Just being around them is fun. Bo’s smile, as you’ll see, will light up a room. Dan’s kid-at-heart presence brings so much joy. So you can understand how a day filled with these two and the people they cherish would be pretty much perfection. The only drawback was the rain and I am willing to bet almost no one who attended this wedding remembers that part of the day.
It’s not every day that you meet and get to work with people like Dan and Bo. I feel beyond blessed to have them in my life. Not only did I get to photograph their amazing day, they asked me to document yet another awesome milestone in their life. What is that you ask???? Well, you’ll have to scroll all the way to the bottom to find out. Don’t forget to leave them a message of love in the comments.
Thank you to all the vendors who created this kick-ass event! And a special shout out to my second shooter Kelly, of Grace Hill Photography. I can shoot without you, but I don’t prefer it. 😉
Just shy of one year after their amazing wedding, I caught up with these crazy kids at their home in Charlotte to meet the newest memberS (<— you read that right) of their family.
Two things worth noting… 1. YES! I photograph families. I like to call these documentary at home sessions Kasey Loftin Backyard Sessions and you can find more of that work here for now: Kasey Loftin Backyard Sessions and 2. YES, this is how behind I am on blogging. But I’m working on it! I’ll be sharing tons of stuff over the next few months.
