Sometimes when you meet someone you know it’s destined to be – Of course Robert and Victoria but I was talking about Victoria & I ;) Haha! Just kidding :) Victoria & I did hit it off and that’s why I have the honor of photographing the wedding in November but Robert & Victoria are definitely a great pair. So much fun we had on this engagement session. Can’t wait for the wedding!
Well, I finally updated my website! I know, it’s been FOREVER but I’ve been just a tiny bit busy .
Besides, picking pictures for the website is no easy task. Of course I LOVE ALL the images I give my clients or else I wouldn’t give them anything. That’s what is fabulous and frustrating about this job. If you LOVE everything how do you choose the one’s you REALLY love and not just sorta love? This question usually causes me to spend HOURS mulling over 1000′s of images trying to decide which are worthy of the website until my eyes cross or I decide that a glass of wine is in order! This is why I usually only do it 2 or 3 times a year, just to keep myself sane
So, want to see if you made the website?!?! Check us out at CarolinaPhotoStudios.com. There is 1 new Featured Wedding and LOTS of new pix under all the other galleries! (I’ll give you a hint, there is AT LEAST 1 photo from every session in the last few months somewhere there, I just can’t help myself
Thank you so much to all my wonderful clients that allow me to capture some AMAZING images for them. I literally couldn’t do it with out you!!!

Although Engagement Pictures are not done on the wedding day they are still a VERY important part of the experience of your wedding. I say this not just as a wedding photographer but from experience from my own wedding – I never had any done!!! I know, tragic right! I really wish I had. My wedding day went so fast and we got some great shots of me and my new hubby but we’re really pretty casual people so I really wish we had some fun casual shots.
Engagement shoots are probably my favorite part of your wedding experience (besides the big day of course :) . There is no wedding day pressure, it’s casual and fun, just you and your photographer. It’s such a fabulous time to be creative and get some great shots of you and the one you love. So why just find some spot and take some pix – NO! Tell your photographer what makes you tick. What is it that you and your Fiance like to do? integrate that into your engagement pictures. Do you like to picnic? FABULOUS – bring your favorite picnic blanket and basket and goof it up! You got engaged at the Local state park – GREAT! Go there and recreate the big moment just for fun! If your wedding has a vintage them to it, maybe your engagement pictures should too! That way when your photographer puts together your photo guest book your engagement pictures will go along with the them of your wedding. The ideas are limitless! And remember, props aren’t bad ( I have to tell myself this sometimes :), as long as they are personal and mean something to you. The favorite picnic basket I mentioned earlier, it’s a part of your life so it will mean so much more in those portraits.
Your photography should be one of the most fun elements of your wedding experience. Start that out right with fun engagement portraits that express who you are! For some great ideas check out blogs like Wedding Wire.com Blog and The Wedding Row Blog

WTT: 5 Basic Rules for your Wedding
1: Do your Homework! Gather referrals from recent brides-find them through friends, coworkers, family and even other vendors. Then read customer reviews at TheKnot.com/local and the Better Business Bureau (bbb.org).
2: Know your numbers. You must have an idea of the number of guests and a tentative budget before you start reaching out to vendors.
3: Don’t be afraid to negotiate. If you find yourself over budge, ask your vendors what you can do to cut costs.
4: Be an adult. Come to meetings prepared with ideas and concerns, and dress professionally.
5: Ask Questions-LOTS of them. Don’t forget to write down all their answers. While you’re at it, write down, print and track all correspondence for your records.
