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!

Everything was put together brilliantl ...

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 ...

Wedding Ceremony and Reception: Crabtree's Kittle House, Chappaqua, NY Hair and Make-Up: Static, White Plains, NY Assistant Photographer: AnyaFoto, New Milford, NJ Being asked to shoot a wedding for anybody is always an honour; being asked to shoot the wedding of another wedding photographer is a nerve-wracking honour! And so it was with a mixture of excitement and trepidation that I accepted my friend Peter Forman's request to photograph his wedding for him and his fiancée, Jess. We'd only really met briefly last year at Cliff Mautner's Lighting and Skillset Bootcamp in Philly, and so I was very surprised and flattered when Pete ...
