umstead wedding photography – pascale & tim

Wedding Photography

Three distinct cultures came together last month at Pascale and Tim’s Umstead wedding: with Lebanese and Japanese elements intertwined with a traditional American wedding there were so many beautiful moments and pretty details to take in. From the getting ready with the always-amazing Stephanie at The MakeUp Culture, to the first look on the boardwalk, the ceremony overlooking the lake, through to the reception with its origami details, traditional Lebanese drum band, confetti-enhanced cake-cutting and plenty of dancing courtesy of the talented DJ Rang, it was a great day to be a wedding photographer.

Everything was put together brilliantly by the fabulous Kelley Ann of A Southern Soirée and I want to send out my gratitude to her and the rest of the team of vendors that made it such a fantastic event. Thank you guys!

And so it was with a mixture of excitement and trepidation that I accepted my friend Peter Forman's request to photograph his wedding for him and his fiancée, Jess.We'd only really met briefly last year at Cliff Mautner's Lighting and Skillset Bootcamp in Philly, and so I was very surprised and flattered when Pete ...

justin and meredith get hitched
A few weeks back, I mentioned meeting some very close friends of ours, Brad and Jennie, at a monthly gathering of friends who consume lots of raw fish, rice sake and plum wine. On Saturday, Cristel, Charlotte and I attended the wedding of two more "Sushi Club" friends, Justin and Meredith, who tied the knot up the road in Fishers. The official photographer for the day was the marvelously talented Angela Talley, but, as you can guess, I couldn't get through the day without taking some pictures of my own, especially given that is was the first time in ages the original Sushi Club members got together AND Charlotte was wearing a pretty cute froc ...

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 7 | cliff mautner bootcamp review
This week's image is a bit different to the norm as, instead of at a wedding, it was taken at Cliff Mautner's Lighting and Skillset Bootcamp, which I had the pleasure of attending this week. I have always admired Cliff's use of light and been impressed with his communication skills and down-to-earth approach to teaching. For those of you that don't know him, Cliff was voted one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world by American Photo magazine and is a Nikon spokesperson and multi-award-winning all-round amazing guy. Bottom line, someone I was really looking forward to meeting and learning from.As you can probably tell, I place a ...
