Tavolo: A Taste of Italian in Charlotte!

Tavolo: A family style Italian restaurant in the uptown area of Charlotte, NC. Located at 300 North College Street, Tavolo offers fine Italian dining, wood fired pizzas, wine & cocktails, and more! Enjoy a seat at the full service bar, upstairs, or a traditional table in the downstairs dining area!

I recently had the pleasure of tasting this amazing restaurant for myself while working  in Charlotte with Kelly of Paper Meets Pearl
We started our trip to Tavolo with a few choice martini cocktails:  • the Fragola: vodka, simple syrup, sour mix, fresh strawberries & basil • the Bacio Del Limone: Prosecco, house made Limoncello, fresh raspberries 




As we enjoyed these delicious house martinis, we decided to add a few appetizers into the mix. 
• Carpaccio De Manzo: thinly sliced beef tenderloin topped with sea salt,  cracked black pepper, olive oil, arugula & asiago! 

• Calamari Alla Diavolo: fried squid with roasted & cherry peppers,  served with marinara.

The Ivey's Hotel will amaze you with it's elegance & charm bringing Parisian glam and contemporary touches together.

A Charleston Anniversary!

When this beautiful lady contacted me about taking her anniversary images in Charleston, I was stoked! She said they would be vacationing in CHS from Ohio for their 1 year anniversary and wanted me to capture them while here! One of my favorite things about what I do is to capture images for those visiting & create a little piece of Charleston for them to take home with them! I had the best time chatting with this beautiful couple and capturing the beauty of their romance!






















A Getaway in Savannah!

I am a sucker for historical cities & towns! Living in Charleston I can't seem to get enough! I recently had the pleasure of spending a few days in Savannah, GA. It was close enough to drive, but far enough away to be.. a mini vacation.. or getaway. Whatever you wanna call it, it was an amazing stay! Savannah, established in 1733 is the oldest city in the state of Georgia. It is full of cobblestone streets, parks, historic buildings & homes, and so much more I could go on for days! 
Due to limited time I wasn't able to explore nearly as much as Id hoped to of this beautiful place. We spent most of our time downtown and a short time down at the Riverwalk. I do plan to visit again soon and capture more of the historic homes and spend more time at the Riverwalk, so stay tuned! 
SO! Here is a quick recap of our brief visit to Savannah!
Exploring Downtown!
