I’m so excited to share these images from an engagement party in Hickory, NC last month. I had the pleasure of meeting Nikki and Pratik through my business mentor who referred them to me. This lovely couple was planning their engagement ceremony in traditional Indian fashion and I was blessed to be a part and capture all the culture and beauty of this wonderful family occasion.

Here are some of the images that highlight the great time everyone had at the party.

Here’s what Nikki had to say about her experience with Derek Johnson Photography:

Thank you Derek Johnson Photography for the great images of our engagement party! We are so pleased with the work you did and they will always remind us of the wonderful time we had. Your photographs are full of life and emotion, and your attention to detail shines through in your work.  Thank you again for the amazing memories you have captured.”

As you may be planning for your next big holiday party, let’s talk soon and meet at your next event to capture all the joy and memories of family together for the holidays.

Welcome back!

Let me begin by saying that I had the greatest time doing this sibling portrait session in Pineville, NC. This was the first time I’ve worked with the Phan children and I loved every minute of it at Johnston Park and downtown Pineville. Cynthia is the older sibling a Freshman at Nations Ford High School. Very energetic, style savvy and FUN!! Young Celina is a 3rd grader and while she started out a little shy and reserved, by the end of our session she was asking, “When can we do this again?”

This fun shoot began in Johnston Park, which on this beautiful Sunday afternoon was quite crowded! I’m used to shoot around the moving scenery and we were able to find some spots around the park to hide and get some beautiful images.  The girls were full of energy the entire time and they posed so well together.  We left the park and ended up in the very small downtown area of Pineville where the girls changed into dresses and we continued to get amazing images of them.

 

 

Check out the rest of the images below and remember this is the PERFECT time to get your kids together for a Fall/Holiday session.
