Britta + Matt | Graylyn Engagement Session | Winston Salem, NC

Britta and Matt are getting hitched in two weeks! Obviously we love photographing beautiful people, but these two…are just plain GOOD people in general. Gracious, witty, and go-with-the-flow…what’s not to love about working with a couple like this? We have adored photographing every single second of their journey so far (even did a STUNNING bridal session with Britta recently, but we can’t share those just yet for obvious reasons. Spoiler alert: She’s gonna look jaw-dropping amazing. Seriously. No words).

Until we have photos from the big day and the top-secret lockdown is lifted from her bridal portraits, here are a few from Britta and Matt’s engagement session at Graylyn in Winston-Salem.

Amanda and Willie are one of those couples.

Kaitlin + Tommers | St. Peter’s Catholic Church | Byron’s South End Wedding | Charlotte, NC

Tommers has been a soccer buddy of Deevo’s for a number of years now, so when he approached us to photograph a surprise proposal to his girlfriend Kaitlin, the answer was a definite “YES!” We then were so honored to photograph both their engagement session and wedding. We love seeing a timeline of photos going from the proposal to the engagement to the wedding; it’s really cool to have a visual graduation of the most important time in a couple’s life together!

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?
