Food Photograper Chapel Hill

Who said hospital food is boring and tasteless? Last week I was asked to shoot some food for the new menu’s that will be offered to patients and visitors at Chapel hill’s UNC Children’s Hospital. We had a great time working with Chef Shawn Dolan and his team.

The hospital has many different restaurants (i think Chef said 17) offering anything from Burger’s, Breakfast, Southern Food, Asian food, Sushi and much more.

Who would have thought that a hospital restaurant would have been serving up such delicious treats as General Tso’s Chicken and Fish en Papillote!

We are going back there again this week to continue the photography, this time shooting the menu which has been specifically designed for children.

Should be fun!NRB35014NRB34995NRB34977

Raligh NC wedding Photography – Renee & Aaron

Renee and Aaron’s wedding was on a beautiful, sunny February day.  Their wedding ceremony was held at Sacred Heart Cathedral.  After taking some portraits at the church, the Raleigh Trolley drove the bride and groom around downtown Raleigh with their families.  Before heading to their reception at Second Empire, we stopped at different locations throughout downtown Raleigh to capture some portraits.  Here is one of Neil’s favorite images at the Boylan Street Bridge with the view of the Raleigh skyline behind Renee and Aaron.  We had so much fun with Renee & Aaron’s family!  We could not have asked for better people to spend this beautiful day with.  Kristie especially enjoyed when the groom danced with his mom to a Pennsylvania Polka.

Raleigh Wedding Photography | Raleigh Country Club

We were so excited to photograph Chrissy and Jeff’s wedding this past weekend at The Raleigh Country Club.  This fun couple have been together for 10 years.  It was a beautiful October day that felt like summer.

We arrived at Raleigh Country Club to find Chrissy and her six bridesmaids watching college football and listening to music while they were getting ready.  Chrissy put on her gorgeous lace wedding dress from Alexia’s Bridal and we headed outside for pictures.   The bridal party looked fantastic in their red bridesmaid dresses from Savvi Formalwear.  Their  white floral bouquets from Fresh Affairs smelled just as amazing as they looked.  Chrissy added her grandmother’s brooch to her bouquet.

Barbara Lodge officiated their outdoor ceremony where the fairways were a beautiful backdrop for the guests.  After saying “I do” we took family portraits and bridal party pictures.  While guests enjoyed cocktail hour inside, we took Jeff & Chrissy away on golf carts to a very pretty location for their “together” pictures.

Their reception space looked amazing with the candles and flowers from Fresh Affairs.  DJ Mike Morse announced the bridal party and Chrissy & Jeff started off the night with their 1st dance.  As soon as dinner was finished guests were filling the dance floor.  The dance floor stayed packed and was so much fun all night long thanks to the exciting nightclub atmosphere that Mike Morse provided.  The guests thoroughly enjoyed the seasonal pumpkin wedding cake from Ashley Cakes.   Their friends & family left with Black & White cookie favors.

The bride and groom were sent off by their friends & family with a sparkler exit and we loved the 1966 Volkswagen Van that they left in!

Congratulations Chrissy & Jeff and may you have an exciting lifetime ahead of you.

Raleigh Bridal Portrait Session | Linden

Linden was married this past weekend at The Carolina Inn so we can finally share her studio bridal portraits that we photographed last month.  We had so much fun with Leni and her mom during the session.  Here is what her mom had to say about the bridal session. “We have been enjoying having Leni’s bridal portrait over our mantle for the weekend.  It is simply awesome!!! I will always remember how wonderful that portrait sitting was….. a little bit of slow motion heaven for me… watching you bring out the best in my lovely daughter.  The wedding was such a blur…..makes me appreciate the time you took with Linden that afternoon.”
