I still feel like a relative newbie in the Raleigh wedding photographer community so it’s always great to be able to check a new venue I haven’t worked in before off the list. So I was really happy to finally be able to get to have a look at All Saints Chapel in downtown Raleigh for Jessica and Joshua’s wedding a few weeks back. It’s a fabulous little place with a load of charm that lends a real feeling of intimacy to the ceremony. Of course, the gorgeous light pouring through the stained glass windows behind the altar wasn’t bad either!

The reception was held at Driftwood Southern Kitchen in Lafayette Village in North Raleigh. It’s a pretty new venue and I believe this was the first time they had actually staged a reception, which was amazing as everything ran like clockwork. On that note, big thanks to Shawn Schindler and her team at Your Special Day for running such a well-oiled machine. It was great working with such a fab team of vendors who totally hit it out of the park.

Of course the real story of the day was the amazing amount of warmth and love on show between Jessica and Josh and their family and friends. It really was such a lovely day for Jimmy and me to be a part of and I very much enjoyed looking back through the pictures and reliving all the beautiful moments we documented.

Here are just a few of my faves from the day:

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 ...

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 ...
