Engagements: Zac & Emily | Charlotte, NC

Charlotte NC Wedding Photographer - Nathan Abplanalp (31)
Zac has been a friend of mine for the last couple years since I photographed the band he is the bassist for, Bruised But Not Broken. He might be the happiest and most passionate person I have ever met in my whole life and it really shows with his love for Emily. He is all about her. Emily is such a compliment for Zac. She is sweet, has great style, and a mean artistic streak. They wanted their engagement photos to be taken in a natural setting that was not ostentatious or overly dramatic (at least from the photos standpoint). With a simple backdrop and them both being very willing subjects, we set out to let our ideas run free. I am so very pleased to be their photographer and their complete trust really shows though in how genuine they are in these photos. Thank you Emily and Zac!

This is the result, beautiful images of a resilient couple who were so attentive to each other that they did not mind in the slightest all of the walking.
