Amy+Ben // A Maternity Shoot

We are so excited to welcome Amy+Ben to the CSP 5 Timer’s Club!! Technically they’re being introduced next month during their newborn session but I figured I’d give it a head start. :) We’ve photographed them for their engagement session, their wedding, this time they lived in NYC and we slept on an air mattress in their apartment and hung out with their cats Lucy+Elaine, now for their maternity, and next month when they meet their newborn son! It’s so awesome to be such a big part of helping tell someone’s family history like this, especially for people who are near and dear to our hearts. We are so glad that these guys are back in the state and living in Raleigh, and so excited for them to begin what will surely be an awesome family. Amy and Ben are some of the kindest and smartest people we know, and we’re sure these qualities will get passed on to their kiddo. Congratulations, friends!

CSP Class of 2016.

As we finally bid this dumpster-fire of a year that is 2016 adieu, we take a moment to happily remember that while things went crashing and burning swiftly after David Bowie died, that not all of the year was bad. We personally had a lot of happy memories working with these happy people that we love and cherish. CSP had a wonderful year thanks to everyone in this post. A huge heartfelt congratulations to all of our clients on their weddings, anniversaries, children, pets, engagements, families, and all milestones large and small that we helped celebrate with you all this year. WE’RE SENDING A BIG HUG TO ALL OF YOU. A big, sweaty, gone-on-too-uncomfortably-long hug. May the odds of 2017 be ever in your favor. Congratulations to the CSP Class of 2016!

The year end “Class Of” posts date back to 2011.

Welcome to our 5th annual Making Fools of Ourselves blog post! Yet another wonderful installment to show you just how gross we end up looking on wedding days. Here are more out-of-focus pictures of me looking totally bewildered and overwhelmed, and more photos of Geoff looking perfectly content and calm. More hairstyle changes than you can shake a fist at, more dog wrangling, and more awkward looking yoga poses in a corner while we wait for someone to bring us food. We’re not going to pretend we look good. We don’t. The light’s bad. The backgrounds are bad. We’ve been on our feet for eight hours trying to pose twelve drunken wedding party membersĀ and all we’ve eaten is a protein bar. But this blog post serves as proof that…. Geoff… can… stand in for my light metering?… and that I….need a step stool sometimes? I don’t know, you guys seem to like it.
