Wake Forest wedding – Cassie and Sam

Cassie and Sam, Mrs. and Mr.

 

On a beautiful Fall day, Cassie and Sam were married. I first met the two back in April, and we had an awesome time shooting their engagement photos at Duke Gardens. They are so fun-loving and easy to be around; it just makes all the picture taking easy and natural.

The wedding, at The Stone Chapel in Wake Forest, N.C., was a quaint and intimate service with family and friends. We then moved to TPC Wakefield in Raleigh and, after shooting portraits in the warm afternoon light on the beautiful golf course, the couple enjoyed an awesome dinner and boogied down with their guests. Congrats, guys; I’m glad you chose me as your photographer.
