Natalie’s and Nick’s photography album from their beautiful June wedding in Raleigh is done. Actually, it’s been done, but I’ve been so busy, I’m just getting around to blogging about it.

Raleigh’s historic Yates Mill Pond engagement session — Lauren and Patrick

June 21, 2012

I’ve seen many pictures from historic Yates Mill Pond Park in Raleigh, but I hadn’t yet visited or taken pictures there.

  I love to take pictures; I love the beach. That makes taking pictures at the beach something I REALLY love.

  The NC Museum of Art in Raleigh is on my list of places I’ve been meaning to visit but just never have. So, I was really happy when Nguyet and Allen suggested the museum for engagement photos. Allen proposed to Nguyet in Museum Park, so of course it is special to them. It’s always […]

Duke Gardens Spring engagement photos — Kim and Todd

June 12, 2012

  I take engagement photos at many different locations in the Raleigh – Durham – Chapel Hill area, but none more so than Duke Gardens in Durham.

UNC 2012 senior graduation photos — Ashton

  Ashton is graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill next month. She wanted to have the traditional cap and gown photos, but she also wanted to have some fun photos done around campus; something more relaxed and casual. We did the obligatory cap and gown photos at the Old Well, but then we wandered around campus and […]

Duke Gardens and American Tobacco Campus engagement photos — Emily and Micah

April 17, 2012

  Emily and Micah knew each other as children, in Texas, but were separated at a young age; their fathers were in the military, and military life can keep you moving. But love knows no bounds and no separation of time, and years later, here they are — reconnected; in love; engaged to be married. […]

Uptown Charlotte wedding and reception — Jessica and Robert

January 18, 2012

  Jessica and Robert travel. A lot. Like 30-plus-weekends-a-year a lot. Both work in NASCAR, and during the season they spend more time on the road than at home. So, of course, their Charlotte wedding in December during the NASCAR off-season was certain to be an epic affair.   With help from Tami, my second […]

Durham quinceanera photography — Maimunah

January 6, 2012

  I recently had the honor of photographing a quinceanera, a coming of age celebration for a 15-year-old girl in the Latin American community. I had never photographed a quinceanera before, so I didn’t know quite what to expect, but I was eager and excited. When I showed up at Maimunah’s house in Durham the […]
