raleigh portrait photographer – chad biggs events shoot

Portraiture

I was first introduced to Chad Biggs and his team back in September 2014, after shooting co-founder and lead planner, Jessica’s, wedding the previous month. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with them on a number of weddings both at Melrose Knitting Mill and in other venues. To me, they’ve always been really great people to work with: totally on their game with regard to the planning and nailing all the little details, but they’ve also been really fun and friendly people to spend time with too, which is great given the pressures of working on such mentally demanding events as weddings. So it was great to get a call from Jessica earlier this year with some exciting news about a new venue they were working on…

…And so it was that, back in May, I headed over to what promises to be one of the Raleigh-area’s coolest new venues, The Historic Wakefield Barn in Wake Forest, NC, to meet up with the team for some team photos and individual headshots. The basic remit for the shoot was to incorporate the vibe of the barn into the images and provide a selection of different looks for the individual photos of Chad and the team.

For the photographers out there who are interested, the majority of these images were shot with the Canon 1DX Mk II with the 24mm f/1.4, 85 f/1.2 and 200 f/1.8 lenses with a mixture of available light and Profoto B1. The B&W images towards the end were shot after sunset using available darkness with the Sony a7RII with Mitakon 50 f/0.95.

The final part of my triple-header of shoots last Sunday took me to my old stamping grounds in Cincinnati, OH. Ault Park to be precise. This place has a lot of great memories for me, including a certain office party almost 10 years ago where far too much alcohol was consumed and I ruined a perfectly good tuxedo. Anyway, if you'd told me back then I would be working as a photographer now, I would have probably told you (in a slurred English accent) you were slightly barking. But so it is, and so it was that I spent last Sunday evening dodging the storms and taking photographs of Lily and Josie and their mum and dad, Christine and Nick. The ...

Back in early October, I got the chance to hang out with Max and take his senior pictures for him. It was a really nice evening and I had scouted out a few locations for us to hit up, so we headed out and got the job done. There are some great old abandoned redbrick warehouses out on 16th Street in Indianapolis, right by the railway on what is now the Monon Trail. We took a few pictures there and in the playing fields next door before heading downtown to the area by Meridian and South by the Slippery Noodle and then across to Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Colts, and then back again to the tunnels under the railway there. Max was typically ...

On Friday last week, I met up with young Maggie and her parents, Terri and Adam for an early-morning shoot at the IMA. The first thing I saw when I looked into the back of the car, were two brilliant blue eyes shining back at me from the car seat. I think my words to Terri were: "Wow! we're going to have some fun with them!". And so we did. Maggie was a really great little baby to photograph: she smiled when asked to and looked at the camera pretty much on demand too. Mum and dad had come well prepared too, with plenty of props and clothes. The rocking chair in the pictures is a family heirloom going back at least three generations. The b ...
