umstead wedding photography – pascale & tim

Wedding Photography

Three distinct cultures came together last month at Pascale and Tim’s Umstead wedding: with Lebanese and Japanese elements intertwined with a traditional American wedding there were so many beautiful moments and pretty details to take in. From the getting ready with the always-amazing Stephanie at The MakeUp Culture, to the first look on the boardwalk, the ceremony overlooking the lake, through to the reception with its origami details, traditional Lebanese drum band, confetti-enhanced cake-cutting and plenty of dancing courtesy of the talented DJ Rang, it was a great day to be a wedding photographer.

Everything was put together brilliantly by the fabulous Kelley Ann of A Southern Soirée and I want to send out my gratitude to her and the rest of the team of vendors that made it such a fantastic event. Thank you guys!

Ceremony & Reception: The Umstead Hotel & Spa, Cary, NC | Planner: A Southern Soirée, Raleigh NC | Officiant: Fr. Christopher Ross, Raleigh, NC | Florist: Knots n’ Such, Garner, NC | Cake: Sugarland, Chapel Hill, NC | Strings: Arioso Strings, Cary, NC | Hair & Make-Up: The Make-Up Culture, Durham, NC | DJ, Photo Booth & Reception Lighting: DJ Rang, Durham, NC | Rentals: Party Reflections, Raleigh, NC |  Videographer: Thomas Blake Films, Hillsborough, NC | Assistant Photographer: Erin Costa, Wilmington, NC

It was hard selecting just a few photos from the day, but here is just a selection of my personal favourites. Congratulations again to Pascale and Tim! All the best, guys!!

river landing country club wedding – megan & chad
OK, so this River Landing Country Club wedding is going to be the final wedding to hit the blog in 2017, and, as far as I'm concerned, it's a great way to wrap up the year. Yes, it's a bit of a corker! Let's see: Fab bride and groom? Check! Awesome wedding party? Check!! Beautiful locations? Check!!! T-Rex first dance? CHECK!!! The list goes on... Megan and Chad were really great to work with. Megan is a photographer herself, so I was very flattered when she reached out to me to ask me to shoot her wedding. Given that she lives in VA, we pretty much planned everything via phone and email and hadn't actually met till the wedding day itse ...

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 7 | cliff mautner bootcamp review
This week's image is a bit different to the norm as, instead of at a wedding, it was taken at Cliff Mautner's Lighting and Skillset Bootcamp, which I had the pleasure of attending this week. I have always admired Cliff's use of light and been impressed with his communication skills and down-to-earth approach to teaching. For those of you that don't know him, Cliff was voted one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world by American Photo magazine and is a Nikon spokesperson and multi-award-winning all-round amazing guy. Bottom line, someone I was really looking forward to meeting and learning from. As you can probably tell, I place a ...
