We’re gearing up for a big week this week! With three engagement sessions (including a hot air balloon ride tomorrow), new creative photography projects playing with around with levitation, and Spring Break in Atlanta with the kids- we’ve got every minute jam-packed!
We did want to share with you one cool organization we’re helping support this week. Every year we work with NC Heroes Fund, a nonprofit helping our veterans. Clint filmed a 30 second promo for them, and Deevo’s going to be working on a shoot- all just because it feels good to give back. We’ll be sure to share the finished products when they’re done!

Wedding photography is one of those things that “you get what you pay for.” There’s just no way around it. We’ve cautioned potential clients against going the cheap route and explained why photography is so expensive. But at Fusion, we realize that marriage is something that you do when you’re young, just starting out, and weddings are really expensive no matter how many favors or DIY projects involved.
We know you’ve been thinking about this for quite some time.
You’ve met the parents, pulled dad aside, (even though he scares you to death) and asked for permission.
You’ve been saving up for months, debated on the right one for a few more, then flinched when they rang up the total price. And now it’s burning a hole in your pocket.
What’s New in Fusion’s Studio
This week was a little quite around the Fusion Studios. Last Friday we enjoyed the company of our studio-mates at the Hart Witzen Gallery for their gallery opening. Good friend Mandy was there with new work and furniture from Bombshelves. We also found some really great local artists we wanted to follow.
So as we’ve taken on a new assistant and have received a ton of questions about photography in the past, we’re going to start a new series on the basics of photography. Think of us as your cool uncle that has all the latest gear. You wouldn’t be afraid to ask him out for a beer and have him show you the ropes- same for Fusion Photography Studio.

Dalice and Greg were so much fun to hang out with on a chilly Charlotte, NC February night. The couple wanted an uptown, urban feel for their Charlotte engagement photos incorporating graffiti and a swanky nightclub atmosphere. We took them to NODA for their engagement graffiti photos which proved to provide a very colorful backdrop.

With the weather being as crazy as it’s been in the past few weeks, we were wondering if there was even going to be a spring this year. We all know that Charlotte is known for about three good weeks of spring and then it moves on to summer. But with the warm sunny weather we’ve had this week, all the blooming cherry blossoms, and allergies, (…aachooo!) I think we can officially say that winter has officially lost to spring once again.

We were so excited when Precious and Darius approached us in 2013 about doing a destination wedding in Las Vegas in early 2014. We absolutely love Vegas! There’s just something extra special about all the bright lights, the good times, and how everything in Vegas is just a little too far over the top. But Fusion Photography knew that we were in for a spectacular wedding photography treat!
Hey friends! Last week we posted a pretty pictogram with all the things you’ll need to be prepared if disaster stirkes on your wedding day. You can find that post here. This week, we thought we’d provide you with a printable version of our “Wedding Day Emergency Shopping List” so you can take it with you when you’re shopping for the big day. These kits are a must-have! Not only do they help out just in case something happens (as it always does), but they also provide you peace of mind throughout the day. When you have one of these handy, you know if something happens, you are prepared. We like them because a less stressed bride equals a happy bride, and a happy bride takes pretty pictures!
Kaitlin and Tom are such cool people we absolutely loved photographing their proposal! Tom met Deevo through playing soccer. When Tom decided to propose, he secretly planned the entire event. From flying in both sets of families to an entire day spent pampering the women and golf for the men, culminating in the surprise rooftop proposal and family dinner afterward. Tom is the man!
