Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens Wedding Photography Quezia and Philemon
Jun 13, 2018 | By: Fusion Photography
Online dating seems to be the new social norm for couples meeting, I guess it's only appropriate given the advent and popularity and mobile technology. Quezia and Philemon both met through Christian Mingles - an online website that specifically is geared towards Christian Singles.
They both describe their first interaction as "dynamic" and "immediate connection". I interview both clients separately for this post and those were exactly the words they both used.
They dated over the course of two years - but the kicker is they did this via long distance. Quezia lived in Brazil and Philemon Detroit. Both heartily indicated it was the very technology that exists today that enabled them to stay in touch and stay in love over the two years they were apart. Speaking from experience personally, I am dating a woman who lives four hours apart, and while we do a great job of visiting each other, its virtual technology that enables us to share so much of each other's lives with each other. Either through late night facetime calls or texting throughout the day - it enables us to stay current with each other. Q and P said the exact same thing. They would spend hours on Facetime calls through the night. This went on for over a year before they finally met in person - in Detroit MI. As soon as they saw each other, they affirmed what they both already thought - they were in love.
For their engagement session, we photographed in Uptown Charlotte, by this time they both had relocated to NC for work and settled on Charlotte as their new home. They wanted an engagement session that reflected their new home together.
For the wedding, the two chose a combination of small and intimate with a few of their favorite aspects to celebrate their wedding, and hiring great photography was critical (insert sappy music for Deevo).
For the formal bride and groom wedding photographs, I took them after the wedding to Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens - why after you ask? Simple, Quezia is latino, she was late, two hours late in fact, we did not get a chance to take photos, so I met up with them after the fact, the following week and we spent three hours walking around the most beautiful gardens in Charlotte North Carolina.
