Uptown Charlotte Stylized Elopement Wedding | Asher and Marcel

Asher and Marcel approached us about their wedding photography a few months back.  They were having a very private and extremely intimate affair in in Uptown Charlotte for their wedding and they wanted to capture the spirit of the city for their wedding photography.  As lovers of cityscapes and urban photography, they were clearly in the right place.  Deevo knows a few places you could say about cityscapes and urban appeal of Charlotte, and he had the perfect combination in mind for this stylized wedding photography session.

Asher and Marcel have some friends to thank for first bringing them together at a party, hours after meeting, they sat in the less than appealing temperatures to get to know one another.  It's just a few years later and here we are, celebrating this couple's wedding in true Fusion Style.  What's not to LOVE about this intimate stylized wedding photography session in Uptown Charlotte NC!

They both candidly admit the attraction was there from the get go.  Marcel was drawn in by her amazing smile, and Asher loved his confidence and let us know the good looks certainly didn't hurt. ;-)  It is easy to see what they are talking about.

Their wedding photography session was really fun - a complete departure from the norm.  No wedding day timeline to compete against, no wedding consultants harrassing us to get the B&G to the reception, perfect weather, and amazing clients that were willing to do anything (climb to the top of our rootop 20 stories high in 4 inch heels).  Oh and thanks Dave at Royal Limousines for the sick jag wheels!

How he Proposed

On Thanksgiving, right before dinner at Marcel's parents house, everybody went around and told what they were thankful for.Marcel went last. As he was stating what he was thankful for he stated that he was thankful for me and he got down on one knee and asked Asher to be his wife. "It was also my birthday weekend and his proposal made it the best birthday eveeeeer!" commented Asher.

We were so incredibly thankful to have captured these moments for you Asher and Marcel.  We hope we helped you create and seal these memories for a lifetime, because this image will be forever ingrained in our minds. And thank you Charlotte for that amazing backdrop!
