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!

Early last month, I headed out to photograph my first ever Pavilion at Carriage Farm wedding for the lovely Ashley & Devon. After the excitement of the weather we had in September, I was pleased to see the forecast and that we were going to be blessed with a beautiful sunny day out in the countryside. I met up with Ashley and her bridesmaids in the bridal suite at the venue while Erin headed over to hang out with Devon and his entourage. As I say, I'd never shot at the Pavilion at Carriage Farm before. If you've never seen it, it really is a great venue with a lot of clean, directional natural light, especially in the bridal suite. If ...

A couple of weeks back, I headed down to Hope Mills, just outside Fayetteville, to spend a few hours around sunset in the company of Michelle and Clay. Rather than going with traditional wedding photography for their day, they wanted to just take some portraits ahead of time, which sounded like a fun idea to me. So with a couple of cameras, a fab location and a whole lot of juicy golden hour light, we sallied forth and went for a stroll with the sole purpose of having some fun and seeing what we came up with. Here are just a few of my fave frames from their sesh. Cheers, guys! ...

When Kim originally contacted me in May last year, she hadn't even booked her venue yet, so it was clear photography was a pretty big priority for her. As soon as we spoke, I knew we were on the same wavelength and I was so pleased when she booked me pretty much straight away. Happily, she did select a beautiful venue pretty quickly thereafter! And so it was that a fortnight ago, I took the arduous 6-minute drive from my house to The Oaks at Salem to shoot Kim & Jeff's wedding a couple of weeks ago. We were forecast storms, and it did rain a little in the morning, but I always say to wait and see what happens on the day and we couldn't ...
