November is such a beautiful month in Charlotte, NC. Want to know why? Because it’s right smack in the middle of fall! This Fort Mill and Charlotte photographer had the honor of shooting Madison and Cara’s engagement photo shoot on a beautiful Saturday evening in Charlotte at Marshall Park right in the middle of Uptown Charlotte, NC.

Madison and Cara were the cutest couple ever and reminded me of why I was so excited to be documenting their upcoming wedding this coming spring at Southern Charm Events in Rock Hill, SC!

We even had a photobomber come through on his bicycle, which elicited a few laughs from all the girls and me! He was nice and apologized as he rode by. 🙂

On the way to their engagement photo shoot, Madison and Cara made a pit stop and grabbed a blanket. We found an awesome tree to photograph next to! Can I just say how much I loved their little “Love” sign that they brought along?

Leaves! Did I mention all the leaves that blanketed a good portion of the park’s grounds?! Of course Madison and Cara had to go and play in the leaves (along with sharing a few sweet kisses afterwards).
