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

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 ...

Danielle & Josh were married on a gorgeous sunny autumn evening surrounded by their closest friends and family at Shady Wagon Farm in New Hill, NC. There were a lot of great moments throughout the day, from the ceremony, which was officiated by the ever-prepared and personable, Rev. Kayelily Middleton, through to the family formals, the couple's photographs at golden hour and the reception, which featured the fantastic sounds of Six Stylez - definitely one of the best bands I have seen in a while at a wedding. It was a lot of fun watching everyone from the kids to grandparents cutting a rug! As a photographer, I don't think I could ...

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 ...
