Elon Wedding at Melrose Knitting Mill

The most Elon wedding ever

What is an Elon wedding you ask? Well, it’s a wedding where two Elon grads get married and invite half the people they graduated with. Ashlee & Rob met in college and their time at Elon University was significant enough that we did their engagement session on campus earlier this year (with their ADORABLE dog Sadie). Sadie didn’t get to come to the wedding, but tons of their friends from Elon did and we got a photo with all the Elon alumni plus an Elon flag. That, folks, is an Elon Wedding.

Check out some of our favorite images from Ashlee & Rob’s wedding day in downtown Raleigh.

Badass dramatic shots for your wedding party are something you should always make space for in your timeline!

But “normal” wedding party photos are fun too! Hire us because you deserve a photographer who can do both.

When it’s not windy enough for veils to blow on their own, we enlist the help of your wedding party. And sometimes that means one of your friends almost pulls the veil out. (No updos were harmed in the making of this photo.)

  1. Found your portfolio from the Rangefinders 30 Rising Stars. Pleased to see that at least one other photographer on the list is embracing vibrant colors (and off camera lighting). Keep up the good work.
