raleigh wedding portrait session – michelle & clay

Wedding Photography

A couple of weeks back, I headed down to Hope Mills, just outside Fayetteville, to spend a few hours around sunset in the company of Michelle and Clay. Rather than going with traditional wedding photography for their day, they wanted to just take some portraits ahead of time, which sounded like a fun idea to me. So with a couple of cameras, a fab location and a whole lot of juicy golden hour light, we sallied forth and went for a stroll with the sole purpose of having some fun and seeing what we came up with.

Here are just a few of my fave frames from their sesh. Cheers, guys!

These are two amazing venues for a wedding: Built in 1855, St. Mary's Chapel has a fabulous vintage feel to it, which beautifully complemented Sarah's dress and Jake's classic tuxedo look. Conversely, The Umstead, which opened its doors in 2007, is a super modern design with sleek, elegant architecture that provides a fabulous backdrop for the getting ready and wedding reception part of the day. I really enjoyed photographing the fusion of the feel of th ...

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 11
People following this blog will know that I like to try to tell stories with my images and that one of my favourite parts of the day to cover is the preparation time when the bride is getting ready. This week's image shows the bride's mum helping her daughter into her dress, which is always an emotional highlight of the day. Something about putting the dress on makes everything so real and imminent, which can be quite a moment after months of planning and anticipation. Those same people following this blog will know that I am a big fan of keeping out of the way and just letting moments like this happen. The fact that the bride was position ...
