Back at the start of June, I kicked off what is shaping up to be a fantastic summer of wedding photography with Cassie and John, their family and friends for a really fun day in downtown Raleigh.

I love being a part of every single wedding I shoot, but this was an especially good day given that I was working in two totally new wedding venues for me: the Rose Garden at the Raleigh Little Theatre and The Stockroom at 230 in the heart of the city. Both spots offered lots of visual interest and features for some lovely photographs and we were spoilt rotten with some great weather. I seem to be dodging the storms pretty well this summer, which is always a bonus!

A lot of great people put a lot of work into pulling off a great event, but I want to say a special thanks to Tia at Erin McLean Events for looking after Rebecca and me so well. Also, to the fabulous crew of The Reality Show Band, thanks for some great tunes – the night flew by!

Cassie and John, thanks for having me along for the ride! It’s been lovely getting to know you over the last few months and I look forward to seeing you again soon. I wish you all the very best for a long and happy future together!

Cheers!

Joe

raleigh wedding photographer ~ image of the week: no. 20
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 ...

prestonwood country club weddings – yasmin & michael
On this Thanksgiving Day, I want to say how thankful I am to be lucky enough to be able to do what I love for a living. It truly is a great privilege to be able to spend my time documenting people on the happiest days of their lives. To see two families, and often two or more cultures, coming together to form one new union and to be able to photograph that event, is something very special indeed. Case in point: Yasmin and Michael's wedding at Prestonwood Country Club. A wedding that brings together a bride with Pakistani and Philippine roots and a groom with Irish blood is always going to be a recipe for fun! Here are my picks of the pics. ...
