raleigh wedding photographer ~ bridal session for katie

Bridal Session

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of documenting Katie and Jeremy’s beautiful wedding in Wake Forest, NC. I’ll be posting some wedding photography from their big day in a few weeks. In the meantime, though, here are a few of my favourite shots from Katie’s bridal session a few weeks back.

It was a pretty cloudy day, but we had a lot of fun taking pictures around Katie’s parents’ home and on the grounds of the seminary in Wake Forest. When the sun did come out for 5 minutes, we definitely made the most of it!

Thanks to Katie and her family for such a fun day. I look forward to posting pictures from Katie’s wedding soon!

Back in the early spring, I spent an afternoon with the lovely Elizabeth shooting her bridal photos ahead of her wedding this summer.

Whether it be a separate shoot as part of a dress-rehearsal for the bride, or some time taken on the adding day itself, it's really nice to take some time with the bride to get some pictures of her in her wedding dress. The shot above was actually taken at a recent wedding in Cincinnati between the wedding ceremony and reception. We had about 5 minutes during the cocktail hour to take some photos of the bride, which isn't much, but that is sometimes all we get to work with. As you can see though, the autumn colours combined really well with t ...

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing Alex and Marcus's wedding at The Umstead Hotel & Spa not far from my home here in Cary, NC. It was a brilliant day and I'll be sharing photos from that day as soon as they're out of the oven. In the meantime, I wanted to take the opportunity to post a few of my photos from Alex's bridal session which we shot this past November. Alex and I basically had the run of the grounds of the Umstead and her friend's property just around the corner, so we made the most of the opportunity to take some traditional shots and also experiment a bit with some more creative looks. Alex looked so ...
