river landing country club wedding – megan & chad

Wedding Photography

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 itself. I met up with her and the girls in their suite at River Landing (loved the light in there!) before heading over to get together with Chad and the boys by the ceremony location. During the planning process, Megan had mentioned she wanted the surrounding woods to play a part in the vibe of the day, so we basically stepped off the road and into the trees to make the guys’ portraits right there by the parked cars. Following the ceremony, we had some fun taking photos photos with the bridal party before spending about 20 minutes exploring the location and light by the cocktail hour. From there, we hit up the Mad Boar Restaurant where the Celtic Court event space was set aside for us.

This was a beautiful day with plenty of anticipation, mood and emotion. From the getting ready, to the ceremony and the reception with the dancing, games and emotional tribute to Megan’s late dad, it was a privilege to be there to take it all in and document. So, I’ll stop waffling on and let you check out for yourselves.

Here are my picks of the pics. Merry Christmas and best wishes for a brilliant 2018 to all!

raleigh wedding portrait session – michelle & clay
A couple of weeks back, I headed down to Hope Mills, just outside Fayetteville, to spend a few hours around sunset in the company of Michelle and Clay. Rather than going with traditional wedding photography for their day, they wanted to just take some portraits ahead of time, which sounded like a fun idea to me. So with a couple of cameras, a fab location and a whole lot of juicy golden hour light, we sallied forth and went for a stroll with the sole purpose of having some fun and seeing what we came up with. Here are just a few of my fave frames from their sesh. Cheers, guys! ...

Wedding Ceremony and Reception: Crabtree's Kittle House, Chappaqua, NY Hair and Make-Up: Static, White Plains, NY Assistant Photographer: AnyaFoto, New Milford, NJ Being asked to shoot a wedding for anybody is always an honour; being asked to shoot the wedding of another wedding photographer is a nerve-wracking honour! And so it was with a mixture of excitement and trepidation that I accepted my friend Peter Forman's request to photograph his wedding for him and his fiancée, Jess. We'd only really met briefly last year at Cliff Mautner's Lighting and Skillset Bootcamp in Philly, and so I was very surprised and flattered when Pete ...
borden building raleigh wedding photographer – britne & calebe
Britne and Calebe's wedding was a real coming together of cultures. With Caleb and his family hailing from Brazil, and Britne being from right here in the gold ol' USA, there was definitely a really fun vibe to this wedding. Britne wrote out and learnt her own personal vows in Portuguese, which was a surprise to Caleb and a very touching moment of the ceremony. We were blessed with a perfect sunny spring day for the ceremony outside at the Borden Building in Fred Fletcher Park in downtown Raleigh.  Here are just a few of my faves from their day...
