melrose knitting mill wedding – natalie & elliot

Raleigh Wedding Photojournalism

Well, wedding season is in full swing and there’s a lot going on over here in the studio, so it’s just a quick post and run today. But I really wanted to take a moment to share Natalie and Elliot’s wedding as it was such a fun day to shoot from start to finish. Mad props to Jessica at Chad Biggs Events for putting together such a great team of people to work with (see below for details) and working with me to draw up such a great timeline in order to explore the mill and surrounding area to get some pretty unique shots for Natalie and Elliot to look back on in the years to come. Congrats to them both!

Here is the amazing team of people that made it all happen…

We would have been quite limited in terms of our options for wedding photography had we stayed in the immediat ...

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 19
One great thing about the lull before wedding season kicks off in earnest here in the next few weeks is the opportunity it provides me to go back and review my images from the past year. In this case, I was looking for an image to enter into the quarterly photo competition with the Wedding Photographic Society. The theme in question was Transportation, and I was immediately reminded of this image I took last October at the Greystone Inn in Durham. In it, we can see the bride arriving at the reception in a 1928 Essex Super Six Coach (provided by the good people at Classy Transportation). It was a pretty difficult shot to pull off technical ...
