A Flirty and Fun Uptown Charlotte Engagement Session

Alexa Hagenbrock + Stephen Hanshaw | Jun 25, 2017

Alexa and Stephen met when they accidentally crossed paths over Easter weekend in a grocery store in Stephen’s hometown. After doing a long-distance relationship for years, Alexa knew Stephen was “the one” when he decided to move to Charlotte to be with her. When it came time to make things official, Stephen surprised Alexa with an Easter egg hunt (a nod to the weekend when they first met). He then took her to Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens where he had planted a giant Easter egg (with a ring inside) in the Orchid Conservatory. Alexa picked up the egg and turned around to show Stephen only to see that he was down on one knee… it was the perfect surprise engagement!

Alexa and Stephen both work and spend a ton of time in Uptown Charlotte so they knew uptown would be the perfect location for their Charlotte wedding engagement session! They teamed up with E. Henigan Studios for a Sunday morning session filled with laughter. They twirled and frolicked around the Charlotte Convention Center and then took some photos outside of uptown’s iconic Mint Museum. They then snuck across the street for some romantic outdoor photos at The Green. The sweet couple’s flirty and fun photos are what perfect engagement shoots are made of!

Congratulations, Alexa and Stephen!
