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!

From there we headed back to the Green residence in Anderson Township, which was also the venue for the evening reception. Cat ...

Sarah & Jake were married back in February in a beautiful, intimate ceremony at St. Mary's School Chapel in downtown Raleigh followed by a full-on party at their reception at The Umstead. 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. 12
This is an image that just makes me smile. Capturing moments between loved ones is something I really enjoy doing. I'm not sure if it's because my wife and I live so far away from our families and loved ones back home in England and Panama and we miss them, or if it's just the old romantic in me, but I love watching people interact and have fun together. It's one of the reasons I love what I do. In this case, we can see the bride's mum and granddad sharing a dance and a laugh later on in the reception. No real mystery in how the shot was put together, except by shooting in manual mode and compensating for the darker environment using avail ...
