st. mary’s & umstead wedding photographer – sarah & jake

Wedding Photography

Sarah & Jake were married back in February in a beautiful, intimate ceremony at St. Mary’s School Chapel in downtown Raleigh followed by a full-on party at their reception at The Umstead. These are two amazing venues for a wedding: Built in 1855, St. Mary’s Chapel has a fabulous vintage feel to it, which beautifully complemented Sarah’s dress and Jake’s classic tuxedo look. Conversely, The Umstead, which opened its doors in 2007, is a super modern design with sleek, elegant architecture that provides a fabulous backdrop for the getting ready and wedding reception part of the day. I really enjoyed photographing the fusion of the feel of these two disparate venues for Sarah & Jake. They are a really special couple and I wish them every happiness for the future together.

Thanks to the fabulous vendors and service providers who came together to make it such a special day:

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 9
It's been an incredibly busy summer so far, so the "Shot of the Week" has unfortunately become more like "Shot of the Month"! I hope to get things back on track here soon, so please bear with me as I get caught up. This week's shot came from a recent wedding that I covered with a reception at the North Carolina State University Club here in downtown Raleigh. In looking through the images from the wedding, this one really stood out to me for its fun content and I think it brings something different for this series. After the cake is cut and the bouquet is tossed, shooting the reception can sometimes get a bit challenging in terms of find ...

st. catherine of siena & the sutherland wedding – maria & andrew
Maria and Andrew's St. Catherine of Siena & The Sutherland wedding was definitely a highlight of my year so far. As wedding photographers, we can only hope for three things: great subjects, great locations and great light - all three were available in abundance on this beautiful day. Throughout the day, it was a joy to just stand back and watch Maria and Andrew interact together and just photograph them as they are. They are so obviously besotted with each other and there were so many tender moments between the two of them, there was really very little direction needed from me for the portrait side of things and we ended up with so man ...

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 ...
