Grace is a beautiful girl. Tall, poised, and classic. She came to Charlotte for her bridal portraits, and had a pretty unconventional request - she wanted to have them taken at her grandparents’ retirement community. Her grandmother was not in good health, and would not be able to make the drive to their Greenville, NC wedding, so Grace asked if I would mind surprising her grandparents with a visit, and letting them come along for her portraits. I love a good surprise, and the looks on their faces when they saw her waiting for them in the lobby was priceless. I had to wipe tears as I was shooting, it was a moment, and a memory, that cannot be duplicated.
Luckily, the location was gorgeous to boot – a historic home, a lake and beautiful landscaping made for several options, and Grace wanted a classic, traditional portrait that went perfectly with the setting. I hope you enjoy these images of gorgeous Grace!
