Panther Stadium Engagement Photos: Erin+Daniel+Zoey

Panther Stadium Engagement Photos: Erin+Daniel+Zoey

Meet Erin and Daniel.  They found us online through a previous client that we photographed at the Panther stadium and loved the pics and commissioned us to create their very own custom stylized engagement photography session at Bank of America (Carolina Panther Stadium).  I always like to incorporate at least two wardrobe changes in every engagement sessions - one more laid back and another more dressy.  Erin and Daniel classified themselves as "athletic and casual" so we themed our session and style around that concept. 

It happened to be one of those gorgeous Carolina days with perfect blue sky and even better sunset.  If you've never seen a sunset from downtown, with all the glass providing reflections and diffusion everywhere, you must know it's a creative photographer's dream.  We also happened to have a guest appearance with Zoey, their pooch, so we incorporated her into the session for their Save the Date cards.

How did they meet?

"We met through mutual friends. I (Erin) moved to NC because of them and Daniel lived in the same apartment complex and they introduced us.

Where was your first date? What did you do?

"Our first date was very simple. Daniel took me to a restaurant and we just got to know each other since we really hadn't talked out of a group setting."

What was your first impression?

Erin: "I thought Daniel was very cute. He was a true southern gentleman and still is to this day."

Daniel: "I thought she was as beautiful as she was in her pictures because I had seen pictures on Facebook. She was easy to talk to and we had a lot in common."

At what point did you realize that you wanted to spend the rest of your lives together?

Erin: "I knew Daniel could be the one very soon on into the relationship. We spent a lot of time together and I very much enjoyed his company. We started dating officially January 15th and by March 3rd we already picked up our puppy Zoey. I knew from that point on he was the man of my dreams."

Daniel: "When we started our little family with our puppy Zoey"

How did the proposal happen?

Erin: "It was my birthday and Daniel planned a group dinner in Mooresville at Epic Chophouse. We had gotten ready and when I came downstairs he gave me a card from our dog. Idid not think anything of it since we always do that for each other but on the inside it said 'Will you marry my daddy'? When  I Iooked over he was on his knee in our kitchen with the ring. I was shocked."

We felt extremely lucky to have Fusion shoot our wedding and engagement session. My wife and I had never been professionally photographed before and so we were probably a little awkward at first, but the Fusion team made us feel comfortable in a hurry.
