I photographed Megan and Lin’s wedding back in September…downtown Raleigh and at the new NC Museum of Art. Their wedding was definitely a highlight in my year. We had so much fun on the day of their wedding, and had planned a “day after” session shortly after the wedding. Normally it would be as the names says, the day after. But due to schedules and weather, we ended up meeting 3 weeks after their wedding for their session! I say that getting to know my clients is very important to me, and it’s so true! From fun at their engagement session, to 10 hours on their wedding day and then a day after session…Megan and Lin seemed like old friends when we met up for this session. It was so relaxed, and fun and spontaneous!
The weather was rainy right up until the session started, and then we had the most amazing clouds and sunlight as we explored the grounds of the NC Museum of Art. Have you seen the Gyre Structures on the grounds? I am sure if you live in Raleigh, you have seen images or visited the museum to see them in person. I have photographed them before, but never quite like this. Take a stunning couple, perfect backdrop of puffy clouds and deep blue skies and the sun getting ready to set and wah lah! Magic! It was such a great setting for their day after pictures.
Towards the end of the session they brought out their bikes. Something that they had talked about doing for pictures since I first met them. Megan was such a pro at riding her bike in her dress (long train and all!!!) and Lin gave her a few helpful pushes to get going. It was so fun to see them ride together, and I am sure that I looked more than comical running alongside of them and behind them catching shots. Haha! A workout for sure!
Megan and Lin….it has been such a blast working with you two and your families. It’s hard to believe that the wedding festivities are over…but now you have to start on getting all of your wedding pictures printed and hung on your walls!!! :) I definitely want to see where that 40″x60″ canvas of your engagement picture is put in your house! It will take up a whole wall!
