Audreyanna + Aaron // A Duke Mansion Wedding

Audreyanna and Aaron are absolute treasures.

They got married at one of the most elegant venues in Charlotte, and with the help and extraordinary vision of their coordinator, Ashley Snider, were able to incorporate their own fun, whimsical style into the day. Each of the details was simply stunning, from the bouquets and table décor, to the garland over the arbor, to THAT CAKE!

But what we loved most about this day was Audreyanna and Aaron’s continual focus on what was most important to them about their wedding day – their commitment to one another and the foundation of their faith that has brought them both together. At each turn in the day they were pointing back to the Lord and his work in orchestrating their relationship, bringing them together, and surrounding them by the love and support of their friends and families.

We truly see our job as wedding photographers as much more than “just taking pictures.” We take on the responsibility of helping each of our couples slow down, soak up their day, and begin to realize the magnitude and the beauty of the commitment they are making to one another. When we have a couple like Audreyanna and Aaron who already “get” that, we feel like we can help them enter into that even further.

Obviously our job as wedding photographers is to take beautiful photographs, and to capture the moments that happen before our lenses. But we’ve found that if we were just capturing pretty pictures we could be done shooting weddings tomorrow. That’s truly not what it’s about for us. The photographs are the means to an end. They are our ticket into the intimacy of our couple’s story and relationship – the free pass to step past small talk and get to the good stuff.

Audrey and Aaron – thank you for trusting us completely and for letting us “get to the good stuff” with you.
