It was such a joy to be asked by Tosha and Brian, the talented photographer and DJ duo behind Story+Rhythm, to photograph their new branding photos for them! We worked with them back in 2015 (time flies!) and so I was super excited to reunite with them! Tosha is the photographer in this relationship and Brian is the DJ. Sometimes they work together, and sometimes separately. I think it’s neat how they’re partners in the same industry but have completely different jobs and roles. It’s always fascinating to talk with different vendors to see what happens to them behind the wedding scenes! So Tosha, Brian, and myself walked about the city and discussed weddings and venues and photography life without Geoff. Geoff’s been missing all of my recent client reunions because he’s retired now, but he did happen to be downtown for a work conference on this particular day and was sticking around so we could go see Coheed afterward at the Ritz. While my face was in the viewfinder, he sidled up next to me and I definitely thought my camera was going to get stolen, but nope, it was just Geoff. So he did get to say hello to Tosha and Brian – hah! It was so much fun to work with them again. If you need a wedding photographer or a DJ, please check out their awesome work! https://storyandrhythm.com/
Jen and Leo had just returned from a trip to Australia with a bad case of jetlag when we photographed them in downtown Raleigh, but they made the best of it! :D Jen and Leo are pretty into downtown Raleigh. Jen was born in Illinois but has since made Raleigh her home… especially after meeting Leo here. He runs the popular blog on downtown Raleigh, The Raleigh Connoisseur, while Jen is also a professional writer and organizer. Since they’re all about the city, they wanted photographs around the Capitol as well as with the skyline for their engagement photos. Their wedding is taking place in Nash Square with their reception at Cobblestone Hall next year, and we are definitely looking forward to it! Enjoy!
Who says February engagement sessions can’t be chock full of awesome?! Katelyn (Katie) and Blake were engaged in December and will be having their wedding in October in Texas. Blake is in the army and stationed in North Carolina while Katie is still living in Texas but flies in often to see him. She called me about doing their engagement pictures in Raleigh, and we discussed a couple of different options for locations. They were conflicted about two different looks: the tall, grassy field look and the bright colored background look. Usually it’s one or the other and it’s difficult to find a place to do both, but we ended up taking the nature ones at Fletcher Park and then making a short hop and skip to do the rest in downtown Raleigh.
It’s difficult to tell these were even taken in February with the lovely colors they chose to wear and the happy sunshine that followed us. :)
And before you see these, I must warn you… YES – Katie’s eyes are really that gorgeous… and YES – They are both that ridiculously good looking. AND FUN. I just love these two!!! Also, it never gets old to have a guy tell you at the end of the session, “Wow, that was a blast! I wasn’t expecting it to be that fun!” :)
Of course, thanks to the clients for being awesome/trust, and to Geoff, for assisting and capturing some great shots as my second shooter!
You two are so gorgeous and fun! We had a great time working with you and wish you the absolute best of luck with your wedding!
