Melrose Knitting Mill Weddings

Another day and we’re back for another Melrose Knitting Mill wedding for Melanie and Anthony’s nuptials. I’d met with Melanie and Anthony last summer for their rainy engagement session and I was really looking forward to their big day.

In my last post featuring Johnique & Derrick’s wedding day, which was also at Melrose, I mentioned the fact I thought it might be a good idea for me to use the fact I was shooting back-to-back days at the same venue to highlight how each couple’s character and personality influences the look and feel of their photos. I don’t necessarily come into the day knowing how that is going to pan out, but I often find that it is in the editing and post-production each wedding’s voice comes to me. For some reason, this wedding spoke to me in more of a monochromatic way. The timelessness and classic feel of black and white images just seemed to better compliment Melanie and Anthony’s style at least when it came to selecting their images for the blog. There were many other color photos in the gallery but these are the ones that stood out to me personally.

The main other difference with Melanie & Anthony’s day was that they had elected to see each other for the first time at the altar, so they had a first touch where they held hands and shared a prayer ahead of the ceremony. We then focused our time immediately after the ceremony and family formals to hit up some of my favourite spots around the Mill for some relaxed portraits of the happy couple.  Before that, everything had run very similarly with Erin hanging out with the guys earlier in the day whilst I photographed the girls getting ready.

Again, everything that is photographed here is totally unstaged except for the portraits. I want Melanie & Anthony to look back on these images and see their wedding day as it really was, not how I designed it for them.

As always, here are just some of my picks of the pics. Have a great week, everyone!

Hi everyone! So, here we are – spring is finally here and the 2019 wedding season is well and truly underway. I’m really happy for 2 reasons: 1) the sun is out and 2) I’ve just finished working on this beautiful Melrose Knitting Mill wedding photography from a few weeks back. Johnique and Derrick’s was actually the first of two weddings I shot at Melrose that same weekend. It’s not often I shoot two consecutive weddings at the same venue, so I think this gives me a great opportunity to maybe show two very different, but equally beautiful weddings back-to-back. I always strive to capture the personality and uniqueness of each of my coupl ...

Well, wedding season is in full swing and there's a lot going on over here in the studio, so it's just a quick post and run today. But I really wanted to take a moment to share Natalie and Elliot's wedding as it was such a fun day to shoot from start to finish. Mad props to Jessica at Chad Biggs Events for putting together such a great team of people to work with (see below for details) and working with me to draw up such a great timeline in order to explore the mill and surrounding area to get some pretty unique shots for Natalie and Elliot to look back on in the years to come. Congrats to them both! Here is the amazing team of people tha ...

Well, what a fun day this was! Lauren and Dennis's Good Shepherd & Melrose Knitting Mill wedding!! Lauren and Dennis live out in California, so I actually met them for the very first time on their wedding day. Till then we'd been talking via email and a Skype meeting. Even through our limited communication, though, I could tell they were a really cool couple. And this was finally confirmed when I rocked up to The Church of the Good Shepherd in downtown Raleigh and finally got to hang out with them. And what better day to do that than their wedding day? This was my first time shooting at the Good Shepherd and what a beautiful church it ...
