Ribbons & Roses : Johanna

CONGRATULATIONS to Johanna and Paul because today is their wedding day! Such a generous, loving couple who are absolutely perfect together. I wish them the best and all the happiness in the world as they begin their lives together.

Not too long ago, I photographed Johanna's Bridal Portraits. It was a bit of a crazy trip to Fayetteville, NC to meet up - with grand adventures such as my steering wheel locking up, odd traffic and meeting a few interesting individuals along the way - but against the snags along the way, I made it. 

Johanna was provided a space to get ready by Rhonda Bright and Fayetteville Business and Professional Women's Club, where Khalilah Frederick did her makeup and Maria Celeste Sallie styled her hair. Surrounding the Women's club an array of locations waited at our creative fingertips. As fellow photographers Christy BealTamara May, and William Harris joined us, Johanna donned her wedding dress - custom designed by Cassie Young and Cassandra Couture - grabbed her bouquet and we headed out the door.

Johanna's session went wonderfully and I've been bursting at the seams to share her portraits! Without further adieu, here they are!
