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!

Cheers,

Joe

Early last month, I headed out to photograph my first ever Pavilion at Carriage Farm wedding for the lovely Ashley & Devon. After the excitement of the weather we had in September, I was pleased to see the forecast and that we were going to be blessed with a beautiful sunny day out in the countryside. I met up with Ashley and her bridesmaids in the bridal suite at the venue while Erin headed over to hang out with Devon and his entourage. As I say, I'd never shot at the Pavilion at Carriage Farm before. If you've never seen it, it really is a great venue with a lot of clean, directional natural light, especially in the bridal suite. If ...

There are a good number of reasons I love my job as a wedding photographer, and one of those is getting to spend quality time with people like Alexandra & Marcus, their friends and family, on one of the most important days of their lives. When I first met with them a year or so ago, I was immediately struck by their warmth, sense of humour, and how evidently in love they were. Those feelings were all reinforced when I shot Alex's bridal session last autumn and got to meet her mum and Matron of Honour, Lace, who were really great fun, and I was really looking forward to shooting their big day. And so it was that a couple of Saturdays ag ...

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 10
Another week and another time to look at something new. I thought it was time to actually show an image from a wedding ceremony, as I realise I have completely overlooked that side of things so far! Going back to the original themes I chatted about earlier on in this series, the areas I look for in my pictures are emotion, lighting and composition, and this week's image checks the boxes for me in all three departments. Taken from the back of the chapel with a 70-200mm lens, I was able to capture the first kiss of the bride and groom whilst remaining unobtrusive. It's important to me to be discrete and not draw attention to myself on the da ...
