This is the first time I’ve run any type of “small business Saturday” promotion but I wanted to help you enjoy the holiday spirit this year in one of two ways. I’ve come up with two promotions that you can take advantage of regardless of if you are an existing or potential client. Read below for details:

Current Wedding Clients

For all previous clients, friends or family, I’m offering 40% off of ALL print prices from now until December 20th, 2016. This is a great chance to order a print for your desk or get the custom wall portrait you’ve been wanting.

To use this offer, simply type xmas2016 when checking out. This offer only applies to prints and if your gallery is no longer active, please let me know and I can re-activate it so you can take advantage of this special offer.

Potential Wedding Clients

All of my wedding collections include a hand crafted, custom designed album which start at $3899. I firmly believe an album will stand the test of time and you never need a computer, power, or anything other than the album itself to enjoy your wedding photos. For a limited time only, I am offering a digital only package which has everything my other collections include, with the exception of the album, for $2999. This is the lowest starting price I have ever published so if you are in need of an award winning wedding photography team, I definitely would love to talk with you about everything this package offers.

if you are just set on getting a beautiful album from your wedding, first of all I applaud you. I’ll be offering a $500 discount on all collections that include wedding albums!

This is a limited time offer so please call me to reserve your appointment in our Apex studio today!!

Ya, we are excited as well! Award winning raleigh wedding photographer

Earlier this year, I received a very, very humbling email from the Wedding Photographer Society. It was announcing their top 100 wedding photographers of 2016 and, to my absolute amazement, I was ranked #52 on their list. I cannot overstate how absolutely surprised, excited and thankful I am to have been listed along side some of the most amazing photographers throughout the world. 

Their best wedding photographer rankings are based on competition entires which are open to all wedding & portrait photographers. Needless to say the work being presented to them is absolutely stunning and inspires me to work harder and harder every day to further hone my craft.

As part of my efforts to creating stronger, better and more meaningful wedding imagery over the past year, i’ve been really focusing on my wedding photography and what is important about it. Specifically combining amazing lighting and strong technique with real emotion. It’s not always easy, to be honest, because you have to know what & where you need something before it happens. Many times, not all 3 things come into alignment but when they do, you have a great shot that people really take notice of.

One of those images, captured late last year, got submitted to the September 2016 WPS monthly image competition for “exits”. The shot was taken at Prestonwood Country Club during the exit in which fake snow was used to send the happy couple off. Photographing wedding exits is an exercise in controlled chaos. You often have, well, lubricated guests, projectiles and exuberance that can, at times, exceed the expectations of everyone, including the photographer. I am honored to announce the below photo, won 1st place in the category of exits.

I want to thank the hard working folks over at the WPS for both holding the competitions and all they do for the industry.

So it may have taken me most of the year to blog again, but i’m definitely going to update with an amazing wedding! April & Mike, after looking over several venues, decided on having a North Carolina Museum of Art wedding in April of this year. The NCMA is truly a beautiful wedding venue that not only has a perfect palette for a wedding, but the grounds offer such a unique venue for wedding photography.

I’ve gotten to know April & Mike quite well over the past 16 months. From enjoying beers when our engagement session met with a torrential downpour to a few chance meetings (and a couple of invitations) for dinner, I truly consider them friends and it’s been a true pleasure going thru their wedding process with them. So to say I had been looking forward to their wedding day would be an understatement. They had both their wedding and reception at the beautiful NC Art Museum. They had opted to have a “first look” before their ceremony and this gave us quite a lot of time to not only photograph their family formals, but their wedding portraits as well. For so many of my weddings I am severely limited on time to create beautiful portraits that having an hour with just the couple was a real treat and resulted in some amazing wedding photographs for the two of them.

After the wedding ceremony was over, they were able to enjoy their cocktail hour with family and friends before dinner, toasts and, of course, dancing. They hired Six Stylez who absolutely killed it at the reception and had the dance floor just packed all night long. 

I want to give a very big congratulations to both April & Mike! It was truly an honor to be a part of your wedding!

One of my favorite locations to photograph, you can probably guess if you read my blog, is Duke Chapel. Couples travel from all over the world to come back to Durham, NC for a Duke Chapel Wedding. The architecture and sheer beauty of this chapel brings in tourists from all over the state so what better place to have a wedding?

Kassity & Tai met at Duke University so their Duke Chapel Wedding was the perfect location to share their wedding vows. After their ceremony, we took the very short drive to the Washington Duke Inn to celebrate their wedding with their family and friends. I’ve shot quite a few Washington Duke Inn Wedding Receptions but this was the first I’ve photographed in the Fairview Restaurant. The Fairview has a large private dining room and a perfect area for a DJ and dance floor.

A special thanks to the amazing vendors and venues who helped make their wedding day so special:

Wedding Ceremony: Duke Chapel
Reception Venue: Fairview Restaurant at the Washington Duke Inn
Planner: Erin McLean Events
DJ: Bunn DJ Company
