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:

oaks at salem wedding photography – kim & jeff
When Kim originally contacted me in May last year, she hadn't even booked her venue yet, so it was clear photography was a pretty big priority for her. As soon as we spoke, I knew we were on the same wavelength and I was so pleased when she booked me pretty much straight away. Happily, she did select a beautiful venue pretty quickly thereafter! And so it was that a fortnight ago, I took the arduous 6-minute drive from my house to The Oaks at Salem to shoot Kim & Jeff's wedding a couple of weeks ago. We were forecast storms, and it did rain a little in the morning, but I always say to wait and see what happens on the day and we couldn't ...

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 3
This week's photo is a favourite of mine from a wedding I shot last October in Cincinnati. This was a fun day for me to shoot as the bride is an old friend of mine from when I first moved to the USA from the UK back in 1999. The reception was held in a marquee in the back garden of her parents' gorgeous house overlooking the Ohio valley and that is where this shot of their first dance was taken. I think it's pretty obvious why I like it: this was the split second when the bride made eye contact with me and the expression in her eyes is just priceless. You can't see her the whole of her face, but you don't need to; she just looks so incredibly ...

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 itse ...
