Mindy & Jeremy’s country wedding on Lake Gaston was all about them as a couple. They enjoy hunting together so they chose camouflage and orange as their wedding colors. The day started at Enterprise Baptist Church on Lake Gaston and continued at the Kirkwood Adams Center in Roanoke Rapids.

Despite the chilly spring temperatures, the skies opened up following their wedding, making for a spectacular backdrop for images of the two of them alone.

Always enjoy being at the Preston Woodall House in Benson, NC. The weather was perfect for Allison and Nathan’s spring wedding outside in the the Preston Woodall House gardens. Some of my favorite moments of this wedding were when the bride was getting ready upstairs in the bridal suite.

My job as a wedding photographer is to step back and just observe what is happening in real time. Love this moment when the flower girl just happens to stop long enough to admire the bride’s dress.

Allison and Nathan also exchanged letters to each other and read them simultaneously on the veranda. Of course the night ended with a spectacular sparkler exit in front of the Preston Woodall House.

We wish them many happy years together and enjoyed being photographers for their wedding.

I can certainly do without the spring pollen, but I always enjoy all that springtime brings. Weddings, Family portraits, dance recital images, prom, senior portraits, graduation, and more. The trees are barely full, but we’re in full bloom over here with spectacular spring photography. Here’s a sampling of some of our recent work.

Victoria and Phillip love spending time in Downtown Raleigh so it was only fitting that we celebrate their engagement by creating some images at their favorite places. From Martin Street to my favorite overlooking Raleigh’s skyline, we all had fun having drinks and enjoying Raleigh’s downtown.
