Recently I did a photo shoot here in Charlotte, NC at the lovely Freedom Park. The location was beautiful and so was the weather. The park is free to use but will require a short walk to the pond that you see in the backdrop of the pictures in this post.
There were plenty of people walking by, however no one bothered us. There are clean restrooms on the site and plenty of parking. The park is located in uptown and is easy to access. If you chose this location make sure to pick a less busy day of the week like a random Tuesday or Wednesday. Stay away from Saturdays and Sundays due to the heavy activity in the park.
One thing to keep in mind if you are planning to elope at Freedom Park is that you MUST check with the parks and recreation office to ensure there are no events planned for the day you chose because that can prohibit your elopement plans.
I had the pleasure of working on this photoshoot with the following vendors:

Makeup: Valerie Estrella @Estrellabeauty_
Model: Amber Reese @amber_reese87
Dress: New York Bride and Groom @newyorkbrideandgroom

All vendors are local here in Charlotte.
