Rachel’s Bridal’s are on the BLOG! Finally!! I’ve been wanting to share these beauties for months, and now that Rachel is a married woman, and the craz of wedding season is dying down…I’m finally able to share! The past 3 months have been a bit of a blur, but we are winding down and the blog is about to get LOADS of love! Get excited for these NC Arboretum bridal portraits!

Raleigh Bridal Portraits Rachel and I (and her sweet Mama and Gigi) headed down to the NC Arboretum to photograph Rachel before her big day and trial out all kinds of things – hair, makeup, bouquet, veil, dress, jewels, etc!  One of the main reasons I LOVE bridals is for the trial purpose of everything…all my girls ALWAYS find something they want to change or tweak about their look before the big day!Holly Springs Wedding Photographer Apex Wedding Photographer Bow Tie Collaborative Raleigh Wedding Photographer Garden Bridal Portraits in RaleighThis was my first time shooting at the NC Arboretum, and I’m thinking maybe I’ll just have to go back! I loved how these turned out but mostly I love when my clients allow me try new places! “Have you thought about locations – what type of vibe you’re going for?” “Nope, not really, totally whatever you think is best!” Well, thanks, Rach! I dig you and your trust! <3 NC wedding photographer NC Arboretum Bridal portraits durham wedding photographer modern bridal portraits JC RAULSTON ARBORETUM photographer wedding photographer in raleigh north carolina Hello, sunset perfection, nice to see ya! NC State campus bridal photos JC RAULSTON ARBORETUM bridal photos Rachel!!
