Tracy & Nicole – The Wedding.

Meet Tracy & Nicole. AKA Fancy & Goose πŸ™‚ I had the honor of shooting this lovely and amazing wedding in Raleigh, NC just a few short months ago. We started off shooting portraits in E.B. Bain Waterworks, which is this abandoned water treatment plant a few miles from downtown. Tracy’s company owned it so we had free reign to go where we wanted and I tell you right now, I could have shot there all day long if it weren’t for the heat. The wedding and reception were both held in downtown Raleigh at The Stockroom at 230. I loved this venue. It just fit perfectly with the couple, who had their hands in every detail of this wedding. From the Giant Balloons to the delicious Southern BBQ buffet, they made it all happen. Nicole for instance, made the cake which was a multi-tiered banana pudding with their initials monogrammed on top in Vanilla Wafers. My favorite line from the day was delivered by none other than Jarvis Slacks, a close friend who officiated the ceremony. After a very intimate ceremony he ended by saying ‘by the power vested in me…by my friends, I now pronounce you Married!’ I loved it, I love them, I love everything about this wedding.
Check out some of my favorites from the day.

Jess & Jesse – The Washington, DC Engagement.

Meet Jess & Jesse! They are getting married in just a few short weeks now and for there engagement session we hung out at Glen Echo Park in Washington, DC. It had just finished raining right after we got there so you can see some steam rising off the pavement…Love It! Glen Echo has an old style amusement park look to it which made such an interesting backdrop to this good looking couple πŸ™‚

Tracy & Nicole – The Teaser.

Here is a quick teaser from Tracy & Nicole’s Wedding a few weeks ago. We had about an hour in EB Bain Waterworks, which is this amazing abandoned water treatment plant in Raleigh, NC. I can’t wait to show you their beautiful wedding!!! More to come…

Ilan & Jeremy – The Wedding. Pt 2.

The wedding reception was held at Ilan’s parent’s home in Savannah, Ga. They strung lights through the trees and had miniature lamp posts throughout the back yard to light the dance floor. Everyone was free to roam and roam they did. From the backyard to the kitchen/dining room where they had the most unbelievable food ever. I know I talk too much about food but this was some down home country cookin that needs to be shouted about. They flew in a chef from Nashville named Matt Russo & he turned it out. If you’re looking for a great caterer find him here.
My favorite room was the living room in the front of the house that was dedicated to the musicians of the party (Meaning, Just about every person there & absolutely everyone in Jeremy’s family) and the ones who wanted to listen in. They had Guitars, Bongos, Maracas and I think I saw a Ukulele in there too. Anyone who caught that feelin could pick up an instrument and go to town. People were calling out songs and everyone would start to play and sing along. The amount of talent in that room would have made William Morris drool.

When it was time to give the speeches and sip the champagne (Cheerwine for the non drinker!) Ilan stepped up and told us something that she had never told anyone before. They had been dating a few months and on her birthday Jeremy took her out to celebrate. After the perfect dinner the waiter surprised her with a fruit/desert tray with candles so she could make her wish. As she blew out the candles her wish was ‘Please let me marry this man’…and she did. πŸ™‚


This Disco Ball wasn’t like that to begin with…it fell. I like it better this way.


These cakes were shipped in from New Orleans. What I wouldn’t do for a piece of each right now…

Ilan & Jeremy – The Wedding. Pt 1.

So you’ve already met this Rock Star couple Here and Here but now I’m making it official on my blog. Meet Ilan & Jeremy…married! I’m making this into a two part post because it was a weekend wedding and well there are just way too many moments that I want to share with you guys.
I’ve known Jeremy for years and like I said in the last post I was honored that he and Ilan chose me as their photographer. I met with them to discuss their wedding plans late last year and immediately fell for Ilan, hard. I wanted that beautiful fiery redhead for my bride!..Well, Jeremy’s bride but you know what I mean.
They were married in Savannah, Ga in the garden of The Owens Thomas House which is right off of Telfair Square in the heart of the city’s famous historic district. It couldn’t have been more beautiful.
Check out some of my favorites from the day.


I Swear to you this was real and not staged! How cute is she?!


The couples First Look. I met Jeremy in one of Savannah’s 24 historic Squares after the getting ready shots and we waited for Ilan to round the corner. His reaction to how unbelievably beautiful she is in her wedding dress is priceless.


Look at how much he loves her!

Jeremy is a VERY talented musician and is going to blow the heck up very soon btw. Check out his Solo work and also his band Missing Ships.

Ilan & Jeremy – The Day Before The Wedding.

Meet Ilan & Jeremy. They were married in Savannah, GA and I was completely honored to be their Photographer. They invited me down the day before the wedding, for the Rehearsal and unbelievably delicious Rehearsal Dinner at The Pink House. If you’re ever in Georgia and have the chance, go…and have the spicy fried mac & cheese appetizers…Yum. From the food to the Savannah Ghost Tour to hanging out with this talented group of people, this was one great start to a perfect weekend.
Check out some of my favorites from this awesome day…before.
