What To Wear For Your Family Portraits

What you wear is JUST as important as the photographer behind the camera.  Clothing can make or break a family photography session. And you not only have to dress yourself, but the rest of your clan as well.  No pressure! We know it can be extremely tough coordinating wardrobe for your family, and even harder if you are bringing in the extended family for the shoot.  We want to alleviate a little of the anxiety that goes along with this process by offering up a few of our Fusion wardrobe pointers.    read more

Latta Plantation Engagement Session | Holly + Aaron

I am very excited to get these two up on the blog because their wedding day is just a short two weeks away!  It is getting real! Holly and Aaron came to us with photography as a top priority for their wedding day.  This southern couple was after a engagement shoot that showed off that their classic, romantic, southern side.  They were looking for a little nature, some fields, and a lake. Where else would take them, but one of our favorite stops, The Latta Plantation in Huntersville?  It was the perfect setting for these two, and we caught the sun at it's finest!  Warm, soft hues dominate this gorgeous engagement shoot.   read more

Winston Salem Wedding | Sara + Jon

You may have met Sara and Jon when their beautiful (seriously, speechlessly beautiful) engagement session was featured on our blog last September. You are missing out if you haven't checked it out; true love personified - and that's not just me sweet talking.  I would never have imagined these two could have topped the magic they showed us during their engagement session, but they did it.  As I went through the images from their wedding at Wake Forest University, the first thing that came to mind was "overshare."  I LOVED all of them.  I want to show you each and every moment Deevo captured, but as hard as it was I narrowed it down to, you know, a couple dozen.  read more
