17 Non-Cliche First Dance Songs That Won’t Bore Your Guests…Or You

We love music over here at Fusion. One could say that it may actually be an obsession…to the point of snobbery some may argue. And we LOVE the photos that can be created from the first dance moments at our clients’ receptions. From the couple’s first dance to family dances, these snippets of time often evoke the most emotion. That being said, why do the same-ol’, same ol’ when it comes to choosing the soundtrack for one of the most important moments in your lives? Continue reading

Essential Wardrobe options for your boudoir shoot

lacy bra and underwear setLacy Lingerie – A quality set of lacy undergarments can do amazing for your confidence. Black lingerie and white lingerie are classic ideas, but you can also play around with colors and styles: red can make you feel like a fiery vixen, while a pastel can add some innocent sweetness to a very playful photograph. Think about some fun styles too. I love black strappy numbers that hints at something a little naughty!  Always try and coordinate.  If you don’t own this, consider splurging for one.  You will thank me for it later.

Kelly + Blair | Uptown Charlotte Mint Museum | 4th Ward Park | Charlotte NC

Kelly and Blair came to us via Angela at Planned Perfection and after meeting with them, we all determined that Fusion would be the perfect fit. When Kelly told me she wanted her wedding to be a “party and a celebration,” I did not take her literally. This girl was not kidding; It wound up being one of the most insanely fun weddings we photographed all season! A complete departure from the traditional affair, they really did just celebrate their love. We should have known what was in store for us when it started raining- well, DOWN POURING minutes before their wedding…yet they chose to move forward as planned. So while Angela escorted the bride into the waiting shuttle and Brittany diligently wiped off the chairs, Deevo readied the equipment for a very emotional celebration.
