Jetton Park Engagement in Charlotte, NC - Vanessa & Ekene

black couple's engagement in charlotte, north carolina

Vanessa, Ekene, and I serendipitously crossed paths while we were all in Charlotte, NC last fall and I'm so grateful I was able to photograph their engagement photos at Jetton Park! This park off of Lake Norman is one of my favorite photo spots in Charlotte because of the wide variety of locations - from the gazeebo, to the tree-lined paths, to the rocky beachfront - you can have it all.

Vanessa and I have been friends since high school and have both since left our hometowns of Charlotte for other cities, so it was a really wonderful "full circle" type of moment for me. I'm so happy to see her and her love together, and can't wait to see what the future holds for them!

Here's what they had to say about their experience:

"Katie was absolutely amazing to work with! From the beginning of the shoot she helped me piece outfits together that would shoot better on camera. Super hands on in everything we did that day. She did an amazing job with calming down my nerves and my fiancé’s as well by consistently reassuring us that we looked great. During our actual shoot her directions were always clear for the ultimate vision we had in mind. From the little things she did like taking hair out of my face, to letting me know how to pose better, She’s the ultimate hype-woman & I wish every soon-to-be bride got to experience this type of energy during their engagement shoot. Don’t play yourself... BOOK HER NOW."

Looking to have your love captured in a vibrant and modern way? I know we’ll be a perfect fit.
