50 Shades of Blue Elopement in North Carolina

50 Shades of Blue Elopement in North Carolina

I did an amazing thing with Phylicia from Posh Moments Photography for this Winter Style elopemetn in North Carolina! She put on the Honestly workshop and GUYS! IT WAS PHENOMENAL! Learning from her about Two Bright Lights, how to find vendors, styling these elopements for North Carolina brides, and creating that relationship was so inspiring and helpful. At the end of the workshop, it was no wonder she sold out in 30 minutes of starting ticket sales! My favorite part was meeting other photographers in the area from the BabeCharlotte group on FB. It’s an AMAZING group for anyone starting out and there is no shame posting any question you have on there. Some of my favorite ladies like Avonne, and Hilary were there too from North Carolina! 


A few weeks before this workshop Phylicia messaged me and said one of her male models dropped out! She asked me to help her find someone for this elopement. With my connections to working at Belk, I texted my friend Dylan in North Carolina and bam! He was able to make it! She gave me a shout out during her talk and I was so surprised to have a thank you in front of EVERYONE! All I saw it was helping a friend. 


As for our AMAZING VENDORS, Phylicia got the best of the best! Some vendors for this North Carolina Elopement I already knew like Meagan Kelly, and Honey Silks. But I am SO happy to have met some new ones like Glammed and Groomed, The Antique, and Vintage Soul Floral Design. It made me laugh when Phylicia said “Yes, I am being extra dot com for this elopement! You don’t have to with styled shoots but that is just me!”. What was amazing is that she was SO ORGANIZED!! I have no idea how she does it.

2018: A Year in Review

2018: A Year in Review

2018 Is the year Aly Barnett Photography became a business and an LLC! My daytime job changed companies and people were getting fired left and right. I told myself, eh! That’s okay! I can always shoot weddings full time. Little did I know, that is what happend.


This was the year I started working with The Remnate Collective, joined the Anchor and Veil fam, shot as an associate for even more photographers, YET shot 10 of my own weddings. With a total of 26! I didn’t count that till yesterday. 26 GUYS! That is a lot. No wonder my hard drive has zero space. I also rebranded myself, a new website, more advertising and gear!


For 2019, my word is FOCUS. I am decided to take more time for my business than working a 9 - 5 job everyday! Well, try. Haha! I still love that job but everyday is way too much. I already have 10 weddings booked for 2019 and still getting more! 2018 had so much growth. I couldn’t have done any of this without all my photographer friends, the awesome facebook groups, and of course, Sam and Sophie.


CHEERS!!

Liz & Luke | Wedding | Ritchie Hill | Concord NC

Liz & Luke wanted a wedding that wasn’t too big, but had an awesome after party! No DJ, and a super short ceremony done by my boyfriend, Sam McFarlane! When they first told me their venue was Ritchie Hill, I almost screamed. It has been my dream to shoot there and it’s only 20 minutes from my apartment. September was the perfect month for these two! Ritchie Hill has the best spot for the girls and guys to get ready. My favorite part of the day was Liz’s dress! It was her mother’s dress redesigned into her dress. The same sleeves and train! The girl’s dresses were from Amazon and all the girls did their own hair and makeup. As for the guys, they were seriously too much fun! Liz and Luke are more of an intimate, quiet couple. But their bridal party brought them into the party mood! Their after party at Unknown Brewery lasted all night!
