Raleigh Wedding Photojournalism

As a father of two young daughters, I can only imagine the mixture of feelings that I will go through on their wedding days. It truly must be one of the most bittersweet moments anyone must experience: the joy of seeing them start out on a new life with someone they love dashing against the sorrow of seeing your little girl all grown up and maybe becoming a little further from your arms as a consequence. As I say, I can only imagine at this stage. I am in no rush to go through that myself!

This conflict of emotions was so evident in this mum’s face. I saw her approaching her daughter after the ceremony and waited for this moment to unfold between the two of them. It’s always a great privilege to be a part of someone’s wedding day. To be able to document moments like these is really something very special indeed.

Have a great weekend everyone!

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 ...
