When I left North Carolina almost 4 years ago I not only left a sweet state chocked full of some of the best BBQ, the most charming historic downtown photo op spots and a world full of southern culture I also left a precious handful of dear friends, classmates and colleagues. For 3 years before returning to grad school I was part of an incredible team of designers and business folks at the design firm Signal, Inc. full of some of the most creative and inspiring folks I know. They certainly became my NC family and many of those folks are still my friends and still inspiring me to this day. So when one of those folks, Signal's Director of Account Services, Phil, contacted me about photographing his daughter's wedding set to take place at The Stockroom in downtown Raleigh this past spring I couldn't resist. The day was simply breathtaking, seriously breathtaking... every last blush pink, gold trimmed, blooming floral detail. The bride and groom where incredibly sweet. Their families where warm and loving. And the entire celebration was Christ centered and faith filled. Breathtaking. Thank you Lauren and Trent for inviting me in to capture the day, to celebrate the love and to be a part of the fun all along the way!
P.S. - And thank you to my incredible second shooter and host family for the weekend (and fellow Signal colleague too), Pam Brennan! You are a gem!
