Barclay Villa Bridal Portraiture | Corianna

Featured Barclay Villa Bridal Portraiture

Last week Will + Corianna’s Barclay Villa wedding was published exclusively by MunaLuchi Bride Magazine! This week we remove the veil on Cori’s Barclay Villa bridal portrait session. Bridal portrait is my favorite genre of photographic portraiture because it allows me to work with the bride in preparation for her wedding day. This cannot be accomplished or replicated in the same way during the engagement session. And it serves of somewhat of a dress rehearsal for the bride in advance of her wedding day, which very often is an eye opener for the bride. Even with a limited amount of time, we were able to create some beautiful images in advance of Will + Cori’s wedding day. Here’s a few …

Bridal Portraiture | La’Quondra

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.

Bridal Beauty Portraiture | Dominique

Bridal Beauty Portraiture (1)

It’s Veteran’s Day, and I couldn’t think of a better time to share a special project we pulled together in preparation for a wedding magazine promotional.  You see, Dominique is a Sergeant in the US Army.  In fact, she informed me that she’s a Drill Sergeant.  Impressed?  You should be.  Dominique recently tied the knot with Anthony which allows me to lift the veil on a little something different in bridal portraiture.  I’ll have to admit, I wasn’t intending to shoot in the studio this day, but I’m oh so glad that we did.  The result is a fusion of beauty + bridal portraiture.

Grand Marquise Ballroom Wedding Portraits (2)

Congratulations to Jonathan + Vonetta who wedded on October 19th at the Grand Marquise Ballroom.  It was such a pleasure to assist them on their wedding day.  And now we are able to lift the veil on a few images from Vonetta’s bridal portrait session photographed at the beautiful Grand Marquise Ballroom!

In the first image I wanted to show off one of the major attractions of the Grand Marquise Ballroom, the staircase!  This image falls into a category of indoor scenic, showing off the venue with our beautiful bride showcased centrally.  Of all the times I’ve photographed here, this is the first time I’ve captured this image, which seems so obvious, yet rarely done.
