Today I’d like to share some wedding images from a beautiful wedding we photographed last year in downtown Raleigh. The bride, Natasha, contacted me via facebook much in advance of her wedding day to express interest in having us photograph her wedding. I can’t express enough how honored I was. More than any award or accolade will ever be, the sincere desire from a bride & groom for you to document their wedding day is the highest honor for me as a wedding photographer. As I look back on their wedding day photos, and after receiving “Insights from the Bride”, it is my pleasure to share Gerard + Natasha’s wedding day with you. I hope the beauty of this day wrap you with the warmth that use to be North Carolina
As many of you know, I absolutely love bridal portraiture. And during this time of the year, brides are able to accessorize in ways that remind me of my upstate New York upbringing. I love the shah that La’Quondra’s father brought to her during her Fayetteville bridal portrait session! We photographed this session a week before the ceremony took place. Up until that time I had only talked with La’Quondra and her mother over the phone. Although I consider Fayetteville local to me, we have a high percentage of clients who book us without meeting with us face to face. So this portrait sessions was a bit of an introduction for all of us prior to the wedding ceremony. Mr & Mrs King were so excited to see Quon in her wedding gown. Their baby girl was having her wedding ceremony in just a few days! I’ve chosen a few of my favorites from her session to share with you today. I’ll share the wedding ceremony at the SkyView on Hay in Fayetteville, NC in a few weeks! In the meantime, enjoy the images from Quon’s bridal portrait session.View the full post »
All Saints Chapel Wedding
As I look back on 2013, I find that there are quite a few weddings that I have yet to share. One such wedding includes the son of a fellow Raleigh wedding photographer, James Ward. Because of that, I wanted to do something special and blog Jerome + Keia’s wedding in all black + white imagery! I’m particularly fond of black + white images due to there authenticate yet alternate rendition of how most of us see weddings in real life. It’s classic and stylish at the same time. I love it!View the full post »
Junius Lindsay Vineyard Wedding
It’s mid December, but I have some end of summer sunshine to share with the interweb. You may recall Josh + Natalie from their really unique engagement session. Now we have images from their beautiful wedding which took place at Junius Lindsay Vineyard. I really love photographing in new locations, and to my surprise we couldn’t find a single wedding published at this North Carolina vineyard. Uncovering this gorgeous venue was just one of many unique elements which made their wedding day so amazing. Every decision reflected on who they are, as well as who & what is important to them. Read more on this below as Natalie shares insights from the bride.

St. Mark’s Chapel
“Both my husband and I were very impressed with Dajuan’s on-line photos and chose his wedding photography service for 2 hours on our wedding day. Given the short time period, we were very happy to see Dajuan arrived with his wife to assist with capturing a large quantity of high quality photos during the 2 hour window. Dajuan did not disappoint – the photos he provided were as outstanding as those shown on his website, and he and his wife were very creative in capturing a wide variety of settings, moods, etc. Dajuan is a very nice guy, soft spoken, and very easy to work with. We couldn’t be happier with his service and the end results.
