One of the many things I enjoy about being a wedding photographer is traveling around the state and seeing new places. After 5 years of living in North Carolina, this was my first trip to New Bern and what a beautiful part of the world it is! Having grown up on the coast in the UK, I always love being near the water and we couldn’t get much closer for Jessica and Brinson’s beautiful backyard wedding on the grassy banks of the Neuse River. Under trees draped with Spanish Moss and with downtown New Bern in the distance, locations to tie the knot don’t get much more photogenic than this one.

The vibe all day was relaxed and laid back. I met Jessica after her hair and make-up were done and she was in her dress and we headed over to take some pictures with her horse Cody. From there, we drove to the wedding venue where finishing touches were being made to the garden. After the ceremony, the bride and groom cracked open a beer and we took family pictures. We got them done just in time as a storm rolled in and the heavens opened just as we were getting in our cars to go to the reception. They say every cloud has a silver lining and, in this case, we were treated to a beautiful rainbow, which we took advantage of to get some bridal portraits while we waited for the groom to arrive. When Brinson arrived, Golden Hour was living up to its name so we took a free minutes to get some photos of the happy couple while cocktail hour was going on. After a scrumptious BBQ buffet, the evening played out under the stars to the tunes of 3 Day Weekend and square dancing.

Big thanks to Jessica and Brinson and their friends and family for opening their doors and their hearts to me on their wedding day. I had an unforgettable time and I love the memories we created and captured.

Here are just some of my favourites from the day:

grandfather mountain elopement – teresa & jed
A few weeks back, I got up early and headed up the Blue Ridge Parkway to shoot Teresa & Jed's dawn wedding on the summit of Grandfather Mountain. When we got there, a very thick mist enveloped everything and I was worried we weren't going to be able to take in any of the amazing views you get on a clear day. As it was, God seemed to be smiling down on us as the clouds parted and we were wrapped in the most gorgeous light you can wish for. After the short ceremony, we took a few portraits and Teresa & Jed were treated to their own personal little rainbow. It was a fitting symbol for such a fun-loving and happy couple to start their new ...

cloth mill at eno river wedding – eleanna & michael
There are wedding ceremonies and there are wedding receptions. On Eleanna & Michael's day we had a wedding ceremony that brought together Greek and American traditions: a fun reception complete with great speeches, a rendition to the bride of "You've Lost that Loving Feeling" à-la-Top Gun and a London taxi cab for one of the coolest getaways I've seen for a while (I may be biased though); and a pretty epic after-party featuring some, let's say, interesting clothing choices by the Bride & Groom. Yep, this was truly a fun day to shoot from start to finish. It was a pretty cold and blustery day out at the Cloth Mill at Eno River, whic ...
