Whitehead Manor Charlotte Engagement | Belle + Nick

After our first two attempts at scheduling Belle and Nick's engagement, we finally got it right on the third try, and to be honest the day could not have been more perfect! The high was 68, and there was not one cloud in the sky! We began our session at the beautiful Whitehead Manor in Charlotte, where one of their golden-doodles decided to take a swim mid-shoot in the pond just outside the venue. After some towel drying, and lots of running... we were able to capture these perfect photos outside the Whitehead Manor where the two will marry next September. 

We changed direction, and headed uptown to end the engagement session. We had about 45 minutes left before sunset (and before the UF vs. LSU game started), so we were able to take some GORGEOUS photos of this beautiful couple during the golden hour. They are so sweet on one another, it's hard not to admire what they have. I'm so grateful to be chosen to capture these photos and their wedding next year :) 

Granted UF did not win, but let's be honest... these two won each other... and that's all that matters!
