The dictionary defines elopement as:
e·lope (ĭ-lōp′) a.To run away with a lover, especially with the intention of getting married. e·lope′ment n.
I define it as a loving couple, who without any fanfare or fuss, wanted a simple ceremony with very few people to make an official declaration of their unending love for one another. Zach and Leah have been together for over 6 years and have two beautiful children. These guys are truly one of the most loving families I have ever known in my entire life! Thursday, March 20, 2014, the first day of spring, marked this new chapter in their lives. The elopement took place in Lincolnton, NC, just west of Charlotte.
I am so grateful to have been a part of this event for our industry friend. Dawn, a mother, a wife, a friend and an award winning professional photographer, has double breast cancer. This is the highlight film of the fundraiser for Dawn at the Elite Training Academy in Monroe, NC. A pistol shooting competition to help Dawn and her family with expenses and the finances that she now faces after having to close her business.
