Mimi and Brandon were set up by Mimi’s Aunt. I think that is the cutest thing, because…well, like when does that even happen and when it does, how often are the chances that it’s going to be a match made in heaven??
I swear this couple is like hitting the lottery. They are so perfect for each other. Brandon is a soldier is the U.S. Army (being the wife, daughter, granddaughter and niece of former soldiers, I have a soft spot for all military members) and Mimi is a Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Officer. They both get great pleasure from serving their communities and take great pride in what they do.
They are a bit like ice cream and hot fudge. On their own, both of them are great, but put them together and they are literal perfection. Just look at them!! I mean, check out the way Brandon looks at HER! It makes my heart melt!!
Believe it or not, we shot this engagement session during Hurricane Florence, which was totally downgraded by the time it hit land, but we’ll all still refer to it as a hurricane for the purpose of making this sound more dramatic.
We really didn’t have a chance to reschedule so we played it by ear and managed to get permission to photograph inside The Omni Hotel in downtown Charlotte, then walked through to Founder’s Hall and The Urban Garden. It was pouring down rain outside and the wind was howling like a ghost, but inside, they were steaming up the buildings!! Check out the hotness below! And drop them some congrats in the comments. They get married this weekend!! WOOT WOOT!!
