raleigh wedding photographer – ann and kirk

Raleigh Wedding Photojournalism

Wedding Ceremony: The Garden Terrace, Fearrington House, Pittsboro, NC
Reception: The Barn, Fearrington House,, Pittsboro, NC

Back in mid-March, I had the pleasure of documenting Ann and Kirk’s wedding day at Fearrington House, which is a lovely location just outside Chapel Hill. It was the first wedding of the season for me, and the first since relocating to North Carolina late last year, so I was really looking forward to it. It was also a new experience for me as it was the first time I had never met the couple until the day of the actual wedding. If Ann and Kirk were nervous, they certainly hid it well as they were very easygoing indeed and just let me do my thing. As readers of my blog know, I try to be as unobtrusive as possible on the wedding day itself and just let things happen rather than trying to stage them. That can sometimes throw some people as they often expect the photographer to try to direct the day’s proceedings, but Ann and Kirk were really cool indeed and so we just went with the flow. That left me free to try and find those little moments that make each wedding unique.

The week before the wedding, we were treated to thunderstorms and very cold weather, so it was fantastic to see such a gorgeous spring day. Fearrington House itself and its gardens offered a very pretty backdrop to proceedings and the barn is a really great reception venue indeed with a lot of rustic charm.

Big thanks go out to Ann and Kirk and their friends and family for being such fantastic sports and offering such great subject material. Here is a selection of some of my personal favourite images of the day:

For this week's image, I wanted to go with something completely different to last time and I don't think you can get much different than this! I talk a lot about favouring a photojournalistic approach to what I do, but I really do enjoy the portraiture associated with shooting the bride and groom together on their special day too. Often, the biggest hurdle to getting this right is the sheer lack of time for the couple to relax and get away from everyone else, but if planned properly, the results can be really spectacular. On this occasion, the bride had planned a four-hour window between the end of the wedding ceremony and the start of the re ...
