Bailey & Patrick’s Star Wars Wedding at Centennial Station Your May the Fourth was not as good as our May the Fourth, because our May the Fourth included a Star Wars Wedding! Bailey & Patrick embraced the inherent nerdiness of their wedding date (remember their “I Love You” and “I Know” shirts?) with perfect details […]

Raleigh Wedding Photographers – our 2018! It’s still January y’all so I’m rolling this out in time, but there’s a reason it took most of the month for me to get this done: 2018 was our busiest year yet. We worked with dozens of couples and this is just a smattering of the images we sent […]

James & Lindsey’s Backyard Wedding These newlyweds are from New Orleans, so I didn’t get a chance to meet them in real life (IRL, if you will) until the day of the wedding. But meet them I did, and they are just as delightful in person as they are over Skype. Their small backyard wedding […]
