It’s always a pleasure getting to know such talented individuals from all over the Triangle area who specialize in all different businesses, and working with Dr. Judy Brangman was no exception. Judy is the heart and soul behind Triangle Total Wellness, a resource for health and wellness that specializes in helping individuals live healthier lives. Judy’s an Internal Medicine physician who’s passionate about exercise and whole foods. We figured the perfect setting for a foods-based wellness coach would be a garden, and Judy came equipped with a basket of fruit and vegetables that I eventually made her juggle (sorry, Judy). She is full of life, and also has a fun accent as she hails from Bermuda (literally all my knowledge about Bermuda now comes from Judy, and that’s better than before when all of my knowledge stemmed from documentaries on the Bermuda Triangle). Speaking of Bermuda, though, this woman has been EVERYWHERE! She loves travel and exploring, and is definitely a fun-loving, adventurous individual. She’s also tiny (my sizeeee) so was easy to photograph without a ladder for once (yay!). It was a pleasure working with Judy and learning about her business. If you’re interested in learning more about what she does (and getting healthier in the process!), visit her site at http://triangletotalwellness.com/ or follow her on Instagram @drbrangman. Cheers!

We’re so happy to bring you part two of my shoot with Gilded Bridal! Here’s part one, in case you missed it. Part two’s mission was to photograph the interior of Gilded Bridal, the new wedding gown boutique in downtown Raleigh, and to take some headshots of my beloved wedding client Susan as she’s now become a successful business owner! So proud of her and her BEAUTIFUL space that she and her Dad designed and constructed. It is truly a fantastic addition to downtown Raleigh and to the local wedding industry. She is open now and taking appointments for wedding dress clients! Visit her website, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to learn more. If you’re looking for something fabulous, Susan has it. There’s no guarantee that she’ll be dressed up in as many veils and belts and tulle as I made her wear, but I promise she’s amazing either way.
