Lynn & Kenney love the Uptown lifestyle. They love the city through and through and both want to grow old here in Charlotte. The one thing they knew for sure for their session was that they wanted it to all represent their love of “Uptown Living”. So, we started the session just outside of their South End condo at the lightrail and rode it in to town. Can you believe this was my very first time EVER riding the lightrail?! It was like seeing Charlotte with a new pair of eyes… especially when we got out at the Epicentre, which I also had not yet seen!!!
The interesting thing about the Lightrail when it comes to their session is that Kenney helped lay the track for it. In fact, these rails right outside of their condo were not measured quite right when they were first layed out and he fondly reminisced about how it took him and one other guy 3 weeks to re-lay a block of track!
Neither Lynn or Kenney are in town much. Kenney works for a railroad company and is mostly in NYC… at least away from Charlotte for months on end…. and Lynn… well she is pretty much George Clooney from the film “Up in the Air”. So when they are both home in Charlotte together, they like to relax and spend time in the city dining out and living it up!
They are also quite silly! Love it:)
Kenney loves the architecture in Charlotte and knows way more about any of the buildings uptown than I ever thought there was to know.
Can you guess their wedding date? They are getting married in Miami in a venue that sounds divine! Too bad I can’t be in more than one state at the same time… I’ll be in Pennsylvania shooting the wedding of our Road Trip Winning Couple while they are wed in Florida! So many wonderful weddings, so little time.
I LOVE how this shot came out. Did I mention I am LOVING the new camera? This was the first shoot I used it for and check out that high ISO performance! The image underneath this one will show you just how dark outside it really was…. but Kenney was excited to tell us about the uniqueness of the tracks behind them that cross over so I just had to get them to show up. He helped lay those as well and apparently it’s the only one of it’s kind in America and is in a lot of railway journals. Too cool!
Then we headed to Cosmos where they each got their favorite drink. Can you guess who got the martini?
Yep! Kenney loves girly fruity drinks:) And Lynn loves the beer… too cute!
And we finally ended the shoot with a few on the rooftop of their Condo with their cutie Tyson. I like how grungy and different these all turned out.
Thanks for a fun evening you two! I wish the best for you both:)
