Despite this serious first image, Cathy and Will had the best time during their engagement shoot around the American Tobacco Campus in Durham. I was complimenting Will’s involvement and good spirit, since most men don’t love having their picture taken, telling him that he’s going to get major brownie points… Then he shared with me that he was going to get actual brownies after the shoot so brownie points become literal brownies in this situation. LOVE THAT. We are so thrilled we get to photograph Cathy and Will’s wedding in 2016 – it’s going to be such an awesome day!
Hello, Are you planning your wedding?
We know the beginning of the year is when recently engaged couples kick their wedding planning into high gear. If you are here to look at our wedding photography, you can easily see just those posts by going to “Story Types” over there on the right side of the blog and selecting “Weddings”. From there you can see tons of weddings that we have photographed. Then go to “Tell Your Story” to send us an email- can’t wait to hear more about your wedding day!
The longer I am in this job, the more I am reminded that sometimes the sweetest moments happen when you just lay two babies on a blanket and see what happens. And don’t get me wrong – me, Mom, and Grandma were all doing our best to bribe and instruct and control the situation. This is a tough age to photograph. But regardless of all that, this sister and brother enjoyed some rolling around in the grass on a comfy quilt, and enjoying it… on their own time :).
I have to start out by saying that Andrew proposed to Zuza with her favorite candy – Nerds. He put the ring in a nerds box (seen below) – how stinkin’ cute is that?! I had the best time working with these two leading up to their day. We had a little bump in the road… I (Ashley) had to have my gallbladder removed a week before their wedding. Luckily we’ve got some amazing people that work with us (and an amazing couple that did not freak out), so I was able to work as long as I could that day and then David and April took over from there. Team work makes the dream work, right?! April and I can be so alike when we shoot weddings that I told Zuza that she might not even notice when I left. This wedding day at The Cotton Room was so sweet and beautiful and everything went so well! Zuza is Polish so we got to learn about some Polish wedding traditions, including the bread ceremony during the reception. The florals were absolutely gorgeous from Fresh Affairs and the beautiful cake from Cakes by Chloe.
