durham wedding photographer – jill’s bridal portrait session

Bridal Session

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of photographing Jill and John’s wedding just up the road here in Durham, so I’m pleased to now be able to share some of my favourite photos from Jill’s Rose Hill Plantation bridal photography session from a few weeks ago. Readers of the blog will know I shot another bridal session out at Rose Hill back in the summer, so it was great to be back on a beautiful, golden autumnal evening. I never like to repeat myself if possible, so we shot in totally new locations throughout the house and grounds. Jill looked amazing and we came away with some gorgeous, unique images. Seeing two of my photos printed large on fine art cotton fibre paper, matted and framed at the reception was lovely to see. Any guesses as to which ones they were? Feel free to let me know in the comments below…

raleigh wedding photographer ~ bridal session for katie
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of documenting Katie and Jeremy's beautiful wedding in Wake Forest, NC. I'll be posting some wedding photography from their big day in a few weeks. In the meantime, though, here are a few of my favourite shots from Katie's bridal session a few weeks back. It was a pretty cloudy day, but we had a lot of fun taking pictures around Katie's parents' home and on the grounds of the seminary in Wake Forest. When the sun did come out for 5 minutes, we definitely made the most of it! Thanks to Katie and her family for such a fun day. I look forward to posting pictures from Katie's wedding soon!

My first love, when originally starting out in the wedding photography business, was wedding photojournalism. I was a bit of a purist back then, so documenting moments using available light was really what made me tick and I paid little attention to portraiture and even less to posing, using artificial lighting, etc. But I am driven to always work on and improve my skillset to be able to produce images in a wider range of conditions and styles, especially in the area of portraiture. The bridal photography session, for example, was quite a foreign concept for me when I first moved to North Carolina back in the autumn of 2010. As a Southern tra ...

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 16
The bridal session is a very Southern tradition indeed, but one I do enjoy, even as an Englishman! Whether it be a separate shoot as part of a dress-rehearsal for the bride, or some time taken on the adding day itself, it's really nice to take some time with the bride to get some pictures of her in her wedding dress. The shot above was actually taken at a recent wedding in Cincinnati between the wedding ceremony and reception. We had about 5 minutes during the cocktail hour to take some photos of the bride, which isn't much, but that is sometimes all we get to work with. As you can see though, the autumn colours combined really well with t ...
