Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden • Charlotte Engagement Photographer

I usually don't post long stories on here as I let the photos do the telling, but I have to give a little background information about this couple and why I'm so thrilled to be photographing this adorable couple. In 2007, I met Erica's older sister Lauren and her then-boyfriend Joe during my junior year at UNC. In 2009, Lauren & Joe got engaged! I was just starting my fledgling photography business at the time and offered to take some photos of them. After showing the photos to her family, Lauren emailed me saying that her little sister (who was not engaged or had a boyfriend at the time) said she wanted me to take her engagement photos, whenever that would be. In 2011, I met Erica (who had not met Matt at the time) at Lauren & Joe's wedding. Last fall, Lauren got in touch with me again and told me that Erica was engaged and she wanted me to take her engagement & wedding photos! I am so honored that they thought of me years later and can't wait to work with their families again! (P.S. Lauren & Joe recently added a beautiful baby girl to their family, whom I'll hopefully get to meet at the wedding this fall!)
