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!

This is an image that just makes me smile. Capturing moments between loved ones is something I really enjoy doing. I'm not sure if it's because my wife and I live so far away from our families and loved ones back home in England and Panama and we miss them, or if it's just the old romantic in me, but I love watching people interact and have fun together. It's one of the reasons I love what I do. In this case, we can see the bride's mum and granddad sharing a dance and a laugh later on in the reception. No real mystery in how the shot was put together, except by shooting in manual mode and compensating for the darker environment using avail ...

Britne and Calebe's wedding was a real coming together of cultures. With Caleb and his family hailing from Brazil, and Britne being from right here in the gold ol' USA, there was definitely a really fun vibe to this wedding. Britne wrote out and learnt her own personal vows in Portuguese, which was a surprise to Caleb and a very touching moment of the ceremony. We were blessed with a perfect sunny spring day for the ceremony outside at the Borden Building in Fred Fletcher Park in downtown Raleigh.  Here are just a few of my faves from their day...

Set in the North Carolina Piedmont countryside, and with a history stretching back to 1859, it is a truly fantastic location oozing with character and ambience. From the moment I saw the house nestled in its 13 acres of green pasture and pecan groves, I knew I was in for a treat. Sheila and Larry, the ...
