Rebellious Attitude…Artistic State of Mind

Greensboro Portrait Photographer-Carla+Brent

I met Brent over seven years ago while training for a marathon with our Greensboro’s Team in Training. At the time, Brent was a cycling coach for TNT.  From the day I met him, his enthusiasm for life and his desire to help others succeed in their own endeavors made him stand out among many of the other participants.

It has been several years since I trained with Team in Training so the only contact with Brent in the interim was through Facebook. I was thrilled when he contacted me a few months back to say he was getting married and he wanted Frayed Edge to do the photography.

I met Carla during our initial consultation with her and Brent. Not only is she gorgeous, but it is apparent that these two are a perfect match for each other. She shares his enthusiasm for cycling and they both have a sensational sense of humor as well as an air of fun surrounding them. I knew immediately  their e-session would be a blast. AND it was!

Carla and Brent tell me they met by chance when they both showed up for a Birthday Party.  Brent rolled up on his bicycle with his tail-light flashing. At first, Carla thought he was a dork, cute, but a dork, nonetheless.  When they were introduced, Brent hugged her and says she’s been smitten ever since.  “Ok, Ok, I’m smitten too,” Brent said, “but it must have been the hug, really!!”

Through conversation they discovered all they had in common (such as an appreciation for bald heads) as well as a love for cycling. Their first “date” was at a cafe. Two days later Carla went to watch Brent race. Brent says “the spandex did her in.”  They have been together almost every day since.

“This is one of those amazing events in life that take you by surprise, but leave a lasting impression on your heart. When you know you know,” Carla said.

I’m am so looking forward to shooting her bridal portraits!

I’ll let their e-session speak for them now:
