As Brianna and Sam planned their wedding at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church and Hilton Charlotte at University Place, they hoped for a joyous occasion that would bring their families and friends together for one spectacular night. Brianna hoped for a classy, timeless, and elegant celebration in which good times are had by all, and her hopes came true on this magical night.
The lovely Shay came to Fusion in the hopes of doing something unique for her maternity photographs. After we all practiced holding our breath, and Shay invested in some seriously waterproof makeup, the end result is a series of magical and ethereal portraits. A special thanks to the Omni Charlotte Hotel for giving us a place to set up our underwater studio!
As Cindy and Jim planned their wedding day, to be held at St. Ann’s Catholic Church and the Marriott SouthPark, they chose to decorate with vibrant colors, which echoed their desire for their special day to be bright, colorful, and lively. The energetic couple wanted their guests to have such a great time that it would make their trip to Charlotte truly unforgettable.
For the last several years, Fusion Photography has been documenting the ongoing love story of Taleka and Ini, from being an engaged couple, to husband and wife, and as they entered parenthood. Their adorable daughter Nyomi is now six months old, and Fusion led the young family to Highland Creek Sports Club Park in Concord, North Carolina for a playful portrait session. Nyomi even donned a pair of wings for the occasion.
As Paul and Janelle planned their wedding day, they wanted to pair a traditional ceremony with a fun and exuberant reception celebration. Family, friends and loved ones convened at St. Matthew Catholic Church in Ballantyne for the formal wedding ceremony mass. Afterward they traveled to the Big Chill in Uptown Charlotte for the party portion of the evening. In between, the bridal party stopped by the Greenway near the Metropolitan for some bridal party portrait fun, where everyone’s fun-loving personalities took center stage.
We met Meghan and Seth in Uptown Charlotte for an engagement photography shoot with a healthy dose of metropolitan flair. They shared some intimate moments on the swings at Fourth Ward Park, read a cheesy romance novel to each other, embraced in the green space surrounded by Uptown’s towering buildings, and (safely) dodged traffic for a couple of shots in the midst of an urban landscape. The couple then danced in the middle of Marshall Park as the twilight sky’s colors reflected in the water surrounding them. At the final stop on the Charlotte portrait tour, Meghan and Seth shared a magical kiss in front of a sparkling backdrop of Uptown.
Amanda and Keenan are two fun-loving people who wanted their wedding day to be fun for all of their family and friends who traveled to Charlotte from all over the world. Most of the guests came from out of town, and it was the first time so many people in the lives of the bride and groom would be in the same room together. So naturally they wanted their loved ones to have an amazing time. The wedding ceremony was held at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Uptown Charlotte, with the reception at the Charlotte Plaza Uptown Hotel. The happy couple certainly gave their guests a day to remember.
Zakia and Shawn chose The Ritz-Carlton in Uptown Charlotte to create an evening of elegance and romance, in the shades of Carolina blue, coral, cream and slate gray. Shawn and his groomsmen looked dapper, while Zakia and her bridesmaids were both sparkly and sophisticated in their gowns. The couple truly brought the glamour to the Ritz.
