This is the uptown Charlotte engagement session that almost didn’t happen. Leading up to the day, we discussed two locations uptown. The first was the Carolina Panthers Bank of America Stadium. The second was the Ritz Carlton Charlotte. The intent was to photograph in or around these two iconic locations. But storm clouds almost forced us a to reschedule. Ashlie made hair and makeup appointments and took time off from work. I had already arrived in uptown Charlotte from Raleigh. Rescheduling wasn’t an appealing option, so we waited out the storm. Professional photographers are often prepared for the unexpected. With the sky dim I headed to the car for a couple of lights and created images the Mike and Ashlie adored.
As the storm gave way we began shooting on the rooftop of the Ritz Carlton Charlotte. You can see from my other engagement sessions in Charlotte that I use professional lighting to create commercial quality engagement images for my clients.
