Downtown Charlotte North Carolina engagement photos. In Charlotte, North Carolina, the Downtown scene is bustling and boisterous. But if you're really still and patient, you can find those peaceful, relaxing spots that radiate what the city is all about. This couple chose to have their engagement session in the heart of the Queen City and even with gray skies looming overhead, the serenity and sunshine found them anyway.
Downtown Charlotte is definitely like most big cities but it does have its share of beautiful landscaping and gorgeous architecture. The happy couple finds themselves quietly enjoying the view with large smiles on their faces. One shot shows the bride-to-be in a beautiful blue dress and her long brunette hair blowing in the breeze. Accompanying her is the handsome groom, decked out in a simple gray button-down shirt looking cool and collected.
The couple comes together in front of the Charlotte skyline. Holding hands, they nudge closer together. The bride's shoes are a bright spot in the photo with the sunny color yellow on her feet.
At the same railing, the photographer steps out and grabs a casual shot of the couple looking hopeful and happy. It's endearing to see them not looking at the camera but rather at each other and their surroundings.
The couple makes an outfit change and look relaxed strolling next to the water. The groom is wearing a light blue shirt while the bride dons a sunny yellow dress, to go with her shoes, of course! Smiling and laughing, the two seem to share the moment with a feathered-friend.
An up-close and classic shot shows the groom kissing the bride's forehead. A peaceful countenance appears on her face and the light and natural colors of the photo are pleasing.
The bright dress the bride chose was a perfect addition as it made for great shots next to the ring.
The blues in the dress also mirrored the color of the groom's shirt, making for a creative and collective appearance when shooting pictures of the couple together.
And for one last touch of fun, the couple finds an empty spot and begin dancing and twirling. The photographer captures the moment in one final display of affection as the two enjoy a carefree moment.
Big cities can have small sanctuaries and this shoot is proof. Charlotte is a gorgeous city with a lot of life and energy but it also has those special sentimental spots that make it a unique and charming locale. This couple embraced the solitude and chose to keep the city in the distance. Congratulations!
