Raleigh Wedding Photojournalism

raleigh rose garden bride and mom

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!

Geek info: Canon EOS-1D X with EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM @ 185mm, f/2.8, ISO 400, 1/1000 sec

downtown raleigh wedding photography – alexandra & trent
A couple of weeks ago, I spent a Friday afternoon with Alexandra and Trent documenting their marriage at the Wake County Justice Center. It was a really quick but fun civil ceremony, after which we headed outside for some family photos and portraits of the happy couple. Oh, and we stopped for beer and hot dogs too. All in all, a great afternoon! For those that care, these photos are a combination of film and digital. Film was Kodak Portra 800 on a Pentax 67II with 105 f/2.4 and a Contax 645 with 80 f/2. Digital was a variety of cameras and lenses run through my Analogue Soul presets.

Wedding Ceremony: Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, Raleigh, NC Reception: NC State Park Alumni Center, Raleigh, NC Shooting Kate and Kiku's wedding was an absolute pleasure for me. Such a great couple to get to meet and get to know, I know we are going to be friends from here on out. I could gush a lot about them, but I'll keep it brief. Kate contacted me back in February and from the outset, I knew this wedding was going to be special for me. The fact that Kiku and his family would be flying in from Tarragona in Spain, brought a whole new dimension of fun and interest to the day. Having lived just down the road from Kiku's hometown ...
