Zach and Alison

When I met with Zach and Alison, they were clear on having a low-key, no-fuss tone for their wedding, and I think they translated that into their day perfectly. Working with them was such a pleasure. Even when our photographic plans changed due to running into a dead crow in the stair well of a parking garage or a motorcycle festival bombarding all of downtown Raleigh, they didn’t skip a beat. It wasn’t about the setting being perfect. It was about being with the people that mattered to them. They left the decorum out and brought the good food, dance floor, and glow sticks in. It wasn’t that they didn’t give any attention to the details…as you can see Alison selected the most beautiful blue accents for her and her ladies’ ensemble and the the romantic vibes in the flowers and Sitti’s back courtyard definitely played their part staging a beautiful wedding, but their priority was to make memories with their guests. Whether sitting and visiting with their guests under the market lights, taring up the dance floor, or throwing down baklava, they celebrated and they celebrated hard.

Favorite things:

  1. The bride’s blue details
  2. That Parking deck
  3. Baklava… so good
  4. Sitti’s courtyard
