cloth mill at eno river wedding – eleanna & michael

North Carolina Wedding Photographer

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, which was a great excuse for us all to explore some of the more hidden areas of the old textile mill. This allowed us to get some cool shots of the happy couple and their wedding party away from some of the more obvious and accessible locations. Kudos to the bride and her bridesmaids for indulging me and taking on some pretty serious off-roading in their heels. Thanks also to the groomsmen for providing me with some, let’s say, unique shots which are definitely not appropriate for this blog!! Ha!

Cheers to Eleanna & Michael – you guys have such fab chemistry and a fun loving joie de vivre that I’m sure you’re going to have a long and happy life together! All the best, guys!

Anyway, enough with the banter! Here are my picks of the pics:

winston-salem nc wedding photography – toni & kevin
Toni & Kevin's ceremony and reception have to be amongst the most beautiful weddings I have ever had the pleasure to photograph. The venues, the décor, the lighting, the details, and, of course, the people were all amazing. Everywhere your gaze wandered, there was something beautiful to look at and enjoy. It really was a gorgeous day to be a photographer! I have to give a shout out to Elana and her team at Elana Walker Events for putting together such a great line-up of vendors to deliver such a spectacular event and for looking after Traci and me so well. Everyone involved gets a virtual high-five and free hugs for the rest of this ye ...

Macy & Jordan had a gorgeous wedding last month out in the Eastern NC countryside near Farmville. The amazing May-Lew Farm provided the backdrop for the ceremony and reception and the ceremony took place just down the road at the Farmville United Methodist Church.  It was a beautiful day in two amazing locations and a lot of fun was had by all! Here are just a few of my faves from Macy & Jordan's day. Congratulations to the happy couple!!
