Riley-MacLean-003 copy“I love how much fun and how emotional Heather Swanson and Ryan Askins were despite the heavy rain at their farm wedding just north of Durham. You can make beautiful photographs in the rain if you’re willing to get a little wet.” – Riley MacLean

Riley-MacLean-002Riley-MacLean-011 copy“This was the last wedding at Duke Chapel before it closed for renovations. I absolutely love the architectural details of that building. (Everyone does.) The door into the chapel is super cool and I knew I wanted to incorporate that into a photograph.” – Riley MacLean

Riley-MacLean-007 copy“The addition of goats to a beautiful farm makes photographing a wedding at Elodie Farms that much more awesome. It’s impossible to not laugh a little when the goats are chasing you around trying to get attention.” – Riley MacLean

 

 

 

 


RAP_0547 copy“Many couples start planning their wedding more than a year in advance, but Anna Burroughs and Abe Moyer planned theirs in weeks. They knew they wanted to be married, and that was what mattered most to them. The happiness they shared after they got to say their ‘I do’s’ was tangible.” – Rebecca Ames

EO-25 copy“I really love those quiet moments when a bride gets her dress and veil on, and reality hits that she is about to marry the person she loves most in the world. That second, where the calm sets in, is my very favorite.” – Rebecca Ames

RAP_C3_264 copy“The first dance is such a series of great moments. Most everyone loves to dance, and they cannot help but smile. Here you are doing something amazingly fun with the person you just promised yourself to and everyone usually dances and just feels the love there for a couple of minutes. It is always filled with smiles and pure joy.” – Rebecca Ames
