I was really pleased when Lindsey and Michael contacted me earlier in the year to be their Raleigh wedding photographer. They were referred to me by Katie and Jeremy, whose Wake Forest wedding I documented back in November of 2012. They’d obviously seen Katie and Jeremy’s pictures and, looking for something a little different to the norm, decided to drop me a line.

Lindsey is a Graphic Designer, and I always feel especially honoured when people who work in the visual arts choose me to shoot their wedding. It’s been a bit of a theme recently, and it’s so great when people just get what I do and give me free rein to cover the wedding as I see best. It frees me up to experiment, get creative and have fun. We did just that with the engagement shoot and carried that on into the wedding itself. Of course, there was a pretty massive switching of gears from creative portraiture in the e-session through to pure wedding photojournalism on the day itself. I don’t think I intervened in the day at all aside from the formals at the church and a few portraits of the couple at The Umstead.

So, I want to say a huge thank you to Lindsey and Michael for being so cool and trusting and just letting me do my thing. They are a really lovely couple and I wish them all the best for a long and happy future together. Congrats guys!

Here are a few of my personal faves from the day.

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 19
One great thing about the lull before wedding season kicks off in earnest here in the next few weeks is the opportunity it provides me to go back and review my images from the past year. In this case, I was looking for an image to enter into the quarterly photo competition with the Wedding Photographic Society. The theme in question was Transportation, and I was immediately reminded of this image I took last October at the Greystone Inn in Durham. In it, we can see the bride arriving at the reception in a 1928 Essex Super Six Coach (provided by the good people at Classy Transportation). It was a pretty difficult shot to pull off technical ...

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 ...

Lauren & Adam's wedding at the City Club in downtown Raleigh was a great way to start off my November.

Not to mention Lauren & Adam, their friends and family are such fun, happy people - you can tell theirs is going to be a long and happy marriage. All the best, guys!
