How cute are Christy and Powell?! I loved every moment of their Duke Mansion engagement session! This is one of my favorite places in all of Charlotte to photograph. I was practically jumping up and down when Christy and Powell said they wanted their session there since that’s where they’re tying the knot!! They met through mutual friends at work and after a backyard engagement session (where either dog almost ate the ring!), they’re now planning a spring wedding here in Charlotte, NC.
Duke Mansion Engagement Session
Christy and Powell are so perfect together! They couldn’t keep the smiles off their faces during their session, and that’s what I love to see. We had a great time exploring the grounds and just talking about their wedding plans. Honestly, that’s one of the reasons I love engagement sessions. I get to actually talk and get to know my couples. Wedding days go by so quickly – so these sessions are the perfect time to catch up and just enjoy our time together. Christy and Powell made me laugh so much while we were walking around. My face definitely hurt when we left – in a good way!!
The night of their session, we lucked out with a dreamy sunset so we had some great light as we walked through the entrance of the house. Christy chose the perfect pastel gown for their photos – it was summer and a little pop of color, but not too much. I love how it worked so well with the white of the house and Powell could easily coordinate with her. Everything felt so effortless and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to photograph!
Christy and Powell, I can’t wait for your wedding day next March, back here at the Duke Mansion! See you so soon!
