We have absolutely loved getting to know Paige and Phillip throughout their engagement! These two have been so much fun to work with over the past year! So of course, we were really excited to finally photograph their wedding at the North Carolina Museum of Art! This was our second wedding in a month at NCMA, and it’s always such a pleasure to shoot there. Morgan and the rest of the NCMA staff are so fantastic to work with! They definitely make the wedding day a lot less stressful!

Paige and Philip are truly one of the sweetest couples ever! We feel so lucky that we get to work with a ton of amazing couples each year, but it was definitely a little bittersweet shooting this wedding and wrapping our year with the Pue-Gilchrist’s! (Also, I can officially say that this wedding was filled with the most tears of any wedding we’ve ever photographed! So cute! I just love these two so much!)

North Carolina Museum of Art Wedding

Jessica and Peter were married at the NCMA in Raleigh.

The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh is one of our all-time favorite wedding venues. I mean, what’s not to love about a wedding surrounded by tons of art and white walls? The grounds along the museum are beautiful. AND NCMA has one of the best coordinators around – Morgan Greer!

Jessica and Peter’s wedding day was perfect. It was chic and understated, just like the couple. (And filled with gorgeous florals by Watered Garden Florist!) These two couldn’t be a more perfect match! It’s so clear to see how much they adore one another when spending time with them. They’re both always smiling and seem so genuine. And their day was clearly filled with so much love!
I think they danced together and with their families more than any other couples we’ve ever photographed.

Jessica and Peter – Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your beautiful day! We loved being able to celebrate you two and wish you all the very best! 


I will always love First Looks! I think it’s so sweet for a couple to have a few minutes to quietly take in the day together – before all of the wedding day chaos begins! (Plus, how cute are they?!)

Raleigh Courthouse Elopement

Andy + Daniel

Oh my goodness! We LOVED photographing Andy + Daniel’s super fun Raleigh courthouse elopement recently!

This sweet couple decided to finally tie the knot on their 11th anniversary. They invited a small group of their closest friends to join them for their low-key civil ceremony at the Wake County Courthouse in Raleigh. We loved the humor and unique touches that Andy and Daniel worked into their wedding ceremony. They couldn’t reach a decision on which friends should be selected as their ring bearer or witnesses, so they opted for the judge to draw names from a special box each time. It was adorable!

After the ceremony, everyone headed across the street to Whiskey Kitchen for some celebratory wedding cake and champagne.  This is one of Raleigh’s newest downtown spots and it’s pretty cool inside! Have you guys seen that amazing blue chesterfield sofa?! (OBSESSED!) It was the perfect spot for some cozy portraits of the two of them immediately following the ceremony.
Once everyone had their share of cake and bubbly, Andy and Daniel left their friends to celebrate at the bar while we headed all over Raleigh. Downtown Raleigh is a big part of Andy and Daniel’s lives, so they wanted to incorporate some of their favorite art into their wedding portraits. Thanks to the Raleigh Murals Project, there have been some amazing murals that have popped up lately! We were so excited that Andy and Daniel wanted to stop in at two of newest NC Equality murals that had popped up recently at Trophy Brewing and Poole’s Diner, as well as the Warehouse District mural.

It had been threatening to rain all day, but thankfully the weather held off until the end of the day. We headed over to Mordecai Park to meet back up with their friends and round out their wedding party portraits. This was our first visit to this hidden gem. I’m not sure how we’d managed to pass that park so many times without noticing. But the historic homes and church on the property were adorable – and the perfect place to wrap the day.

Congrats again, you two! We’re SO SO thrilled for you both!

A Rand-Bryan House Wedding

Savanna + Scott
Rand-Bryan House Wedding Photo

Savanna and Scott were wed last summer at the Rand-Bryan House. They truly couldn’t have picked a better venue for their intimate, garden-chic wedding. The Rand-Bryan House is a gorgeous 19th century home turned wedding venue located just outside of Raleigh. With rolling hills, beautifully landscaped gardens…and even a Christmas Tree farm – this historic home offers endless locations for portraits. Plus, the interior of the home is just as lovely with tons of natural light!

Savanna and Scott were introduced to one another through a family friend who thought they would be a perfect match. And he was right! Scott lit up every time he caught a glimpse of his stunning bride throughout the day. It was the cutest thing! But most importantly, his children seemed to adore her as well! It was such an honor to document Savanna + Scott’s wedding day. We’re so happy for these two, and wish them and their families all the best!

A Raleigh Arboretum Wedding | Chris + JohnRaleigh LGBT Wedding Photographers

“Life is short; love is forever!”
There was such a huge outpouring of love for Chris and John on their wedding day! It was easy to see what wonderful people they are from the many stories we heard throughout the afternoon. I love that so many friends and family came out to stand in the rain and celebrate the love between these two!
The JC Raulston Arboretum was such a gorgeous venue for their wedding! John and Chris were able to say their vows in the same garden their proposal had taken place years earlier, gathered around their family and friends. It was lovely! David and I were so honored to be able to document their union and wish them both the very best!

(You can read about Chris’ inspirational journey and see his beautiful work at Works of Chris.)
