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!

good shepherd & melrose knitting mill wedding – lauren & dennis

This was my first time shooting at the Good Shepherd and what a beautiful church it ...

This week's photograph is taken from a wedding I did last year at the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club in Durham, NC. It was taken in the bride's hotel room while she was having the final touches of her make-up applied. As I have mentioned in earlier posts, I very much enjoy this part of the day as it is invariably a moment of great anticipation for the bride and her cortège. There's normally pretty heady mixture of happiness and laughter in the air, but there are a lot of other feelings running their course too: expectation, trepidation and, often, a few butterflies. With such a wealth of emotions on show, it's a great time to take some pre ...

This is a favourite moment of mine from a recent wedding. Watching the interaction between a father and son on a wedding day is something that never fails to move me. Having grown up without having my dad around, these are just some of the special moments that I like to watch unfold and capture for the groom and his family. Unsurprisingly, a good part of my time on wedding days is spent watching people interact and looking for those defining moments to document for the couple. My main way of working at this time is to ditch a lot of the equipment that shouts "photographer!" so I can pass relatively unnoticed and catch people being themsel ...
