Vecoya: 30th Birthday Photoshoot

Vecoya: 30th Birthday Photoshoot

Vecoya and I had a great time taking her 30th birthday milestone photos. Unfortunately our initial plan of taking outside photos was derailed due to the continuous cold rain. Nevertheless, we quickly improvised and decided to use her home as a makeshift studio; moving furniture and removing pictures created the perfect backdrop for Vecoya's 30th birthday photoshoot.  Take a look at some of my favorites from our living room photoshoot.

Never ask a lady her age, they said.  Who is “they” and why do “they” seem to determine the questions for age and weight for women.  My wife has now started to ask me questions like “How old do I look if I wear this”, “Does this make me look heavy or fat”?  I am one to avoid this devious trap and stick to my go to line…. “I think you look beautiful, but if you want an honest answer, you look about 26 and I like when you wear that, it makes me smile”.  It seems to work about 90% of the time, though if she reads this, I’ll have to come clean.  You see, I say that to say that Traona was unique, she was the first woman I had met that was beyond excited to capture her 30 year old milestone.

he beautiful love story of Tony and Charlie began in New York City at a social gathering with memorable conversations and a Facebook friend request. Fast forwarding past European vacations, job promotions, relocations and the proposal, we magically arrived to the special date of May 21, 2016. 

The clouds cleared just in time for the perfect wedding with Charlie & Tony at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont, NC. As the family and friends gathered, Tony and Charlie did a intimate first look, a magical moment that solidified their wedding day. Guest wore hues of blue to set a refreshing tone for the ceremony bringing Charlie's vision to life.
