Chris and Katy’s Raleigh NC Wedding

You may remember Chris and Katy from their engagement session at UNC Chapel Hill last January. It was a far cry from chilly weather for their wedding. It was so hot that when we went outside for a few shots our lenses fogged up!

I immediately got excited for their Ceremony when I was witness to Katy’s happiness in marrying Chris. She had requested that we take a photo of the two of them on either side of a door, before their ceremony. They held hands and Chris smiled. Katie smiled too but she also filled with tears. She was so happy to be marrying him. It reminded me of the emotional response that comes with a first look, without actually having one. She also took a few moments during all the bustle of getting ready and found a secret quiet place so that she could wrap her mind around things. I could tell that she knew the importance and significance of what was about to occur and she did not take it lightly. It really touched me to see a bride so in touch with the day and the moments within it.

Congrats Chris and Katy! May God bless your marriage and fill your days with happiness!

We make photographs that tell the truth by becoming close to you and your story.

    My dear Bethany,

    Your photography makes me cry! It’s just that you were a little girl only yesterday and to see such amazing work…God knew what you would grow up to be, but I’ll always remember the sweet memories of you, Rachel, JoAnna and Hannah.

    Love you,
    Miss Tammie
