Raleigh Wedding Photojournalism

It’s been such a busy wedding season so far, I’ve barely had time to catch breath, let alone blog. I’ve been meaning to update this series for a while, but a lot hard been going on with work and our move to a new house, etc. Luckily, we’re all settled in now and so I’ve had some time to go back and look through some of my images to choose a few favorites in order to get things back on track.

This week’s photo comes from a wedding I shot at Lake Lure in the mountains of North Carolina back in April. As with the majority of my work, this was totally unposed or unplanned. The bride and her bridesmaid were simply waiting for their cue to begin their walk to the altar, I saw where they were positioned with the fork in the paths and tired to balance it with the tree growing on the banks of the lake. It was a split second process in terms of seeing and compositing the shot, which then really came to life in post-production. For those that care, I edited this 100% in Adobe Lightroom by applying colour toning and dodging and burning before adding some light grain to give it that painting-like quality. Nothing too elaborate, but an image I really like and one that placed first in the Wedding Photographic Society’s quarterly image competition for the Artistic category.

This week's image is an example of what can be done in 5 minutes when you've taken the time to scout out the location in advance. In this case, we had just a few minutes after the November ceremony at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Raleigh to take some quick pictures of the bride and groom. I'd taken the time to head out the day before to check out the lighting at that time and had noticed that there was an area across the road from the church that would provide a nice backdrop of autumn colours and light at that time of day. We would have been quite limited in terms of our options for wedding photography had we stayed in the immediat ...
