Rachel + Dave | Charlotte NC engagement session

I am so excited to be getting on a plane in a couple of weeks and flying to Massachusetts for Rachel + Dave’s wedding! We had a gorgeous day last Fall to get out for their engagement session and explore the park. I’m so excited to share in their upcoming day in my home state.

I currently have availability for a couple more 2016 weddings and I am booking into 2017. If you are interested in our wedding photography or have any questions please hit the connect button above. DSC_6111DSC_6159DSC_6221DSC_6261DSC_6289bwDSC_6301

Stefanie + Scott | Charlotte NC family photographer

I was so excited this past fall to be able to meet up with my cousin Scott and his awesome wifey Stefanie. The last few holidays have been crazy with everyone starting their own families and having to shuttle around to different houses we just haven’t gotten the chance to see each other as much as we wish we could. And now that we are living in a different state that time is cut into even more. We lucked out and got a gorgeous September day! William was such a sweetheart and definitely made me work for a smile. I can’t wait to meet baby girl next Summer { maybe if we can get up that way }

Why an engagement session is important | Charlotte NC wedding photographer

Hi I’m Felicia and I’ll be your stalker on the day of your wedding. Kidding, well sort of……..

I’m often asked why e-sessions ( engagement sessions but we don’t really need to type that out 50 times ) are important or a couple will say I don’t think it’s really necessary.

Believe me it is so necessary, important and fun! Your photographer will be with you more than any other person with the exception of your new Hunny on your wedding day. From getting ready pictures, first look, ceremony, formals, your reception we are always right there with you. Most of the time we are capturing the moments of your day but many times we are also helping to make your day run smoothly. I kid you not when I say I have held the brides dress up while she goes to the bathroom , sewn on a suit jacket button and changed diapers during the big day of some of my couples. While getting ready I see all the girly parts and I see the OMG is this really happening right now anxiety at times. During a first look I capture that moment that belongs to just the two of you forever. The moment when the groom cries at the sight of his beautiful bride and they share in that quite moment overwhelmed with love.


All that to say you want to be comfortable around your photographers. You want to click with your photographer. You want to know they are there to make your day easier and better while capturing everything that goes on around you in a blur.

This is where the e-session comes in. It gives us the opportunity to get to know each other, talk about the plans for your wedding day and just have fun while getting some great shots of the two of you. I also get the chance to see how comfortable you are in front of the camera. Maybe you’re a natural or you might need a little loosening up. I know from my own experiences it can be a little stressful feeling like the camera is right in your face and you are on the spot. We can figure out what poses work for you as a couple and what doesn’t. And we figure out if we are the perfect fit!


And because I know how important the e-session is included complimentary in my wedding packages that are over 4 hours. If you have any questions at all about booking a session or your wedding hit the connect button above!

2015 year in review | Charlotte nc photographer

With a huge move 900 miles away from the place I grew up in and had known for the last 33 years how my business would translate down South was so so scary for me! Especially since I knew being basically a single parent household with five children would take up most of my time, I had no idea what I would be able to dedicate to my business and growing it in a new environment. And while I was nowhere near as busy or my schedule filled like it had been in previous years I was so thankful to meet new families that trusted me to capture their precious family. Thank you! And a huge thank you to the families new and old in Massachusetts that made sure to squeeze a session in with me while I was up North visiting. I can’t wait to see what 2016 brings for Felicia McTernan Photography!
