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!

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 3
This week's photo is a favourite of mine from a wedding I shot last October in Cincinnati. This was a fun day for me to shoot as the bride is an old friend of mine from when I first moved to the USA from the UK back in 1999. The reception was held in a marquee in the back garden of her parents' gorgeous house overlooking the Ohio valley and that is where this shot of their first dance was taken. I think it's pretty obvious why I like it: this was the split second when the bride made eye contact with me and the expression in her eyes is just priceless. You can't see her the whole of her face, but you don't need to; she just looks so incredibly ...

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 9
It's been an incredibly busy summer so far, so the "Shot of the Week" has unfortunately become more like "Shot of the Month"! I hope to get things back on track here soon, so please bear with me as I get caught up.This week's shot came from a recent wedding that I covered with a reception at the North Carolina State University Club here in downtown Raleigh. In looking through the images from the wedding, this one really stood out to me for its fun content and I think it brings something different for this series.After the cake is cut and the bouquet is tossed, shooting the reception can sometimes get a bit challenging in terms of find ...

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 ...
