Last time I blogged, I mentioned I was posting before running out to shoot a wedding. Well, this is that wedding: Brittany and Harrison’s beautiful, intimate wedding at The Umstead Hotel, just down the road from where I live in Cary.

Brittany and Harrison recently relocated to the Raleigh area from NYC. They contacted me back in January asking for information on good locations for wedding photography in Raleigh. They were looking for an intimate wedding venue in the woods with “great opportunity for good pics”. The Umstead really fit the bill there.

After the wedding on Monday evening, Brittany and Harrison wanted to head next door into Umstead Park for a woodland vibe to their newlywed portraits. I knew time was going to be tight, but I also knew the ideal location was about a mile’s hike into the woods. Brittany & Harrison have just moved to the area so I knew they weren’t that familiar with the park. So I went out with my younger daughter Natalia on Easter Sunday for a quick hike. We took some videos to scope out the scenery and share with the bride and groom to see what they thought. Fast forward one day and I was back capturing some lovely images in the golden hour light with this lovely couple.

Kudos to Brittany & Harrison for making the 2-mile round trip hike in their wedding garb. Brittany’s dress was beautiful but heavy, so she got a good arm and leg workout. Any guy who has worn a tuxedo and dress shoes will also feel for Harrison. Let’s just say they were willing to suffer for their art. Thank you, guys!

Here are just some of my fave pics from Brittany & Harrison’s day. Congratulations, guys!
