saint mary’s school raleigh wedding | christine and stephen

Wedding Photography

Hair and Make-Up: Primp Salonbar, Raleigh, NC
Wedding Ceremony: St. Mary’s School Chapel, Raleigh, NC
Reception: NC State University Club, Raleigh, NC

I had a great time shooting Christine and Stephen’s wedding last month. We started off the day at Primp Salonbar, which is a really cool place for the bride and her entourage to hang out and have fun while they get ready. Aside from great staff, the full bar certainly adds to the festivities!

From there we headed over to St. Mary’s School, which is home to a lovely little chapel that dates back to the early 19th century. Christine went to high school there, so it provided a beautifully intimate and meaningful backdrop for the ceremony.

The day itself was grey and thundery all day until just before the ceremony when the sun finally broke through. This was good to see as St. Mary’s has beautiful grounds to take advantage of for the pictures of the couple and their friends and family. I was worried that the rain would put a literal dampener on that, but we were lucky enough to get 30 minutes or so before heading over to the NC State University Club for the reception.

Again, it was a great day and I thoroughly enjoyed myself with Christine, Stephen and their loved ones. Here are a few of my favourites from their big day.

Congrats guys!

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
