Stefany and Lee are seriously the perfect couple! Stefany found me on Instagram and booked me to be her photographer for their beautiful rooftop anniversary party! They were keeping it COVID friendly of course - with enough space for their limited invitee's to keep a safe distance from each other, while still being able to celebrate their beautiful union together!
Unfortunately, the day of the event I found out I was exposed to COVID-19. The safety of my clients is my number one priority especially during 2020 when the virus was rampant! I immediately went to my network of fellow photographers to find someone to cover the event for me. I knew I was getting tested and would have to wait a few days for results. But I also knew I would hate to get a positive test result and have to inform her that her, Lee and their guests were exposed.
I am glad I went with my gut feeling, because 48 hours later, I got a positive test result. I was shocked. I felt totally fine those first few days, didn't think I had it at all. But within a matter of days the symptoms came. While I still had a fairly mild case - I still wouldn't wish this virus on my worst enemy.
Once I felt better and was clear to leave isolation, I reached out to Stefany and offered to do an engagement session for them to make up for my inability to document their beautiful event.
Our session was amazing, we shot at my favorite location...Uptown Charlotte! I seriously love to take couples Uptown because there are so many beautiful parks and you get a great mix of an urban city background, and traditional park background. I love being able to provide a good variety of images for my clients to choose from!
Here are a few more of my faves from their session!
