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:

On this Thanksgiving Day, I want to say how thankful I am to be lucky enough to be able to do what I love for a living. It truly is a great privilege to be able to spend my time documenting people on the happiest days of their lives. To see two families, and often two or more cultures, coming together to form one new union and to be able to photograph that event, is something very special indeed. Case in point: Yasmin and Michael's wedding at Prestonwood Country Club. A wedding that brings together a bride with Pakistani and Philippine roots and a groom with Irish blood is always going to be a recipe for fun! Here are my picks of the pics. ...
