Classy and fun. Nothing summarizes Justin and Kelly’s country club wedding quite like these two words. This was my first time shooting at the Carolina Country Club, and it did not disappoint. The couple completely owned their time there by taking over both lounges and utilizing all three ballrooms for their cocktail hour and wedding reception. Kelly was a thorough bride, ensuring that several different locations were captured with her full bridal party as well as getting images of her and Justin out on the golf course and grounds of the beautiful country club. I absolutely loved all of the images we captured on the balcony and the front of the club, because the locations for photos were innumerable. I would say the greatest challenge Krista and I had was battling between the overcast clouds and the bright sun, overall not a bad complaint, meaning that everything else in their day was seamless. I hope you enjoy Justin and Kelly’s Carolina Country Club wedding.


There are times when an image strikes me in an indescribable way and this is absolutely one of those images. It was taken candidly after all formal portraits were done. Kelly was concerned about her veil staying in place. The composition, expressions, and genuine concern in this photo just moments before getting married is why I seldom put my camera down during a wedding day. I live for genuine moments like this and absolutely loved that this image became apart of their wedding day.


Justin completely owned being a groom and I got the shot on the left by asking him to look at the Raleigh Trolley Pub that was coincidentally traveling through.


Justin and Kelly got married at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Downtown Raleigh, and walked over to the Capitol Building following the ceremony for bridal party portraits.




Once again, a father-daughter dance I cried through. Kelly and her father had an incredible connection and I loved this moment.

Kelly and Justin had a stage and glow sticks at their wedding reception. You really can’t ask for anything more.


What a day! This was a pretty perfect day and I’m so honored that I got to help capture Justin and Kelly’s incredible wedding!
