Joe Payne Photography

Raleigh Wedding Photographer

Creative Wedding Photojournalism & Fine Art Portraiture

Hi, my name’s Joe and I’m a British-born Raleigh wedding photographer serving the RaleighNorth Carolina community and surrounding areas including Chapel HillDurham, Cary, Apex and Wake Forest. My speciality is modern wedding photography based on a fusion of photojournalism and fine art portraiture. My approach to photography is very much based on a photojournalistic or documentary style. Rather than directing, I aim to be as unobtrusive as possible in order to capture the authentic moments and true character of your wedding day. My work is known for its combination of creative use of available light, composition and emotion to create authentic and soulful photographs for you to look back on with your family in the years to come. 

Since moving to Raleigh in 2011, my focus has been on delivering stunning wedding photography backed by top-notch customer service. This has led me to receive consistently rave reviews from my clients. As a result, I was awarded “Best of  Weddings” by The Knot and “Bride’s Choice Awards” by Wedding Wire in my first year as a wedding photographer in Raleigh. I was also awarded  “Photographer of the Year” by the Wedding & Portrait Society for 2012 and “Best Photography 2013″ by the Triangle chapter of the National Association of Catering and Events and I have quickly become one of the most highly sought-after Raleigh wedding photographers in Raleigh NC
