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:

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 ...

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 12
This is an image that just makes me smile. Capturing moments between loved ones is something I really enjoy doing. I'm not sure if it's because my wife and I live so far away from our families and loved ones back home in England and Panama and we miss them, or if it's just the old romantic in me, but I love watching people interact and have fun together. It's one of the reasons I love what I do. In this case, we can see the bride's mum and granddad sharing a dance and a laugh later on in the reception. No real mystery in how the shot was put together, except by shooting in manual mode and compensating for the darker environment using avail ...

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 ...
