introducing… zach!

Portraiture

Hi everyone,

It’s been a fun few days since we got back from vacation, but I have been itching to get out and shoot again. The crazy weather has forced a number of postponements, so I was really pleased that Wednesday’s forecasted storms held off in order to be able to go and meet up with Zach and his fantastic Mum and Dad, Yvonne and Scott. We got some really nice shots outside in their lovely big garden as well as in and around the home. Zach was really chilled out the whole time and only resorted to hinting politely when he needed his nappy changed or another feed. I am on a roll with my newborns!

Anyway, one of the things that struck me straightaway about Zach was what fab big blue eyes he has. Thanks to Mum and Dad getting stuck in and helping out, we got him to look at the camera enough to catch them doing their thing and sparkling for us a bit. Mum had also lined up a great selection of outfits (including the Colts onesie and related accoutrements), so we got some great shots across the board.

For my fellow geeks out there, the camera used for this shoot was a Canon EOS 50D with a range of lenses (35 f/2, 50 f/1.4, 24-70 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/4 IS).

raleigh portrait photographer – chad biggs events shoot
I was first introduced to Chad Biggs and his team back in September 2014, after shooting co-founder and lead planner, Jessica's, wedding the previous month. Since then, I've had the pleasure of working with them on a number of weddings both at Melrose Knitting Mill and in other venues. To me, they've always been really great people to work with: totally on their game with regard to the planning and nailing all the little details, but they've also been really fun and friendly people to spend time with too, which is great given the pressures of working on such mentally demanding events as weddings. So it was great to get a call from Jessica ear ...

Last week, I headed over to UNC in Chapel Hill to shoot some UNC Chapel Hill graduation photographer portraits for Lauren, who has just graduated with a degree in Business and Dramatic Art. We started off at the Old Well where we took some traditional graduation portraits, before heading for a walk around campus looking for interesting light and areas to shoot some more experimental/dramatic stuff. Here are just a few of my faves from the shoot.

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 8
One of my favourite parts of the wedding day to cover is the period ahead of the ceremony when the bride is getting ready. This is a really interesting time for me to experience as I don't wear make up (the 80's were a long time ago) and my hair stopped being an issue in the late 90's, so I really do find this preparation period both fascinating to observe and enjoyable to photograph and document. I also really like the quintessential femininity of the process; the chance to enter this world and see the bride interacting with her closest friends and family members at a very emotional moment in their lives is really very special indeed. It's a ...
