I am always down for a road trip! Even before kids and meeting Brian, I have always loved road trips! So when one of our 2018 couples mentioned that they wanted to take engagement portraits on Lake Norman near Charlotte, I couldn’t wait to spend the weekend in Charlotte! I have only stayed in Charlotte a hand full of times over the years, but it’s always a lot of fun. Anytime that Brian and I travel, we always have a blast! This time we took the kids and made it a family weekend as well!
We started the morning off with Whitney and Chuck’s engagement session at Jetton Park on Lake Norman. I’ll share some of their portraits a little later! This was my second time shooting a sunrise session and it was amazing! Jetton Park was super quiet and the lighting was perfect! Plus if you’re anywhere near NC right now, you know that it has been extremely hot. Shooting at sunrise allowed us to beat some of the summer heat!
After our engagement photo session, we headed downtown Charlotte to Discovery Place Science with the kids! Brian and I are big kids at heart and enjoyed all of the exhibits inside of Discovery Place! Especially everything on the 2nd floor. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re every in Charlotte! With or without kids! We will definitely check out one of the other locations next time!
After grabbing dinner at Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, we spent the rest of the evening relaxing in the hotel. We had plans to head out to the pool, but it ended up raining!
I am so ready for our next adventure! Check out a few photos from our weekend in Charlotte!
