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

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 ...

market hall raleigh wedding photography – beth & matt
Just a quick post before I head out to celebrate my birthday with the family - yay BEER & CAKE! Beth & Matt's downtown Raleigh wedding at Market Hall was my last of the 2016 season and it was a great way to close out the year. Such a lovely couple whose love for each other was evident throughout the day. Combine that with a loving group of family and friends, the fun of shooting in a busy downtown Raleigh while a demonstration was going on, a great venue and awesome vendors, and photo opportunities are bound to be there for taking. Here are just a few of my picks of the pics: &n ...
