Shanie + Kyle Bridges Wedding | Kannapolis, NC



filed in


I’ve known Shanie since high school, we had aerobics class together. I’ll save the embarrassment of showing you those pictures but just imagine the braces, tye-dye t-shirts, ugly hair styles and awkwardness. So I was thrilled when she first emailed me last year about being her wedding photographer!

Shanie and Kyle met their senior year of high school through mutual friends. Just like most teenage crushes she was the one who initially had a crush on him, but they lived an hour apart so he never returned the interest….until later!

He proposed to her during his family vacation one summer. Shanie thought they were just going to play corn hole one night but when she reached down to grab a bag she grabbed the ring box and he got down on one knee and proposed & of course she said “Yes!”. Kyle had contacted Shanie’s parents and grandparents prior to their vacation to surprise her at sunset on the beach. So he proposed to her in front of all his family and her parents and grandparents!


Their wedding day was nothing but fun! From the moment I walked into to introduce myself to the bridal party to the moment we left with a few extra flowers in hand! I will forever remember this wedding since it was my first under my new brand. Shanie was a true guinea pig for all my new processes and experiences. Catch up on Shanie’s bridal portraits!

Thank you Shanie and Kyle for trusting me in capturing your special day. I wish you many years of happiness!
