Kelly and Tom selected an excellent location for their October 15th Wedding.
Ballantyne Country Club is one of our favorite locations in the area. The staff is exceptional and the venue offers photographic opportunities in all directions.

It was a busy year for the Small family. Both Cami and her older sister Star married 2 months apart.
As you can imagine, planning one wedding for a family can be overwhelming enough but having two within 2 months could be a bit challenging but everything came together with the help of family and friends. The sisters are 18 months apart and have always shared experiences so this was the perfect opportunity to bounce ideas back and forth and give support to one another.
Cami is a Pediatric Intensive Care nurse at Duke Hospital and Stephen is a graduate student in physics at UNC-Chapel Hill. Looking back they both credit the success of their wedding to the combined effort of so many different people that made their day come together. Each have large families and the combined love and support they received made a huge impact. Cami’s cousin, a bridesmaid, did her hair, Her neighbor and childhood friend was their coordinator, and she wore the same veil her sister had worn earlier that year. Her sisters were maid and matron of honor, her brothers were both ushers, and one of them even drove the getaway car. Stephen’s brothers were all groomsmen, and Cami said she couldn’t imagine marrying into a more welcoming family. One of Stephen’s groomsmen’s girlfriends is a pastry chef, and made them a beautiful four-tiered wedding cake. Stephen and Cami worked very hard to save money and plan their wedding, and said they couldn’t have imagined a better result!

Melissa and Cameron were married October 2nd, 2010 at St. Mary’s Chapel in uptown Charlotte and had their reception at Holiday Inn Center City. Our coverage that day was only 5 hours but the pictures were very important to them. Together we created a timeline that worked perfectly to capture incredible images in the right time of day and in the right locations.
This is what they had to say after they previewed their wedding day photos for the first time.
“We are speechless! Our wedding pictures are beyond perfect. We choose Fort Mill Photography because we wanted candid, emotion filled shots & boy did we get what we wanted & more! The creativity your team has is cutting edge & refreshing. We have a picture of almost every single person at the wedding laughing, dancing, or talking because Fort Mill Photography caught every moment. The dedication to our wedding day was endless from showing up early to staying late. I could go on & on. We are so impressed & couldn’t be happier with the results!”
Thank you so much!
Cameron & Melissa
