Lawyers in Love | Wedding Story

Emily Day and Eric Iverson both attended Wake Forest but did not actually know each other until their senior year when a mutual friend introduced them. Their friend knew that they were both going to be attending UNC Law School the following year and thought it might be nice if they met. What a good friend! Emily and Eric were best friends all throughout the three busy, challenging years of law school but didn’t start dating until after graduation. Now this happy couple lives in New York City and both practice law. They returned to beautiful Raleigh, North Carolina to celebrate their nuptials with family and friends.

This was my favorite portrait of Eric and Emily. The sky and rolling hills behind Carolina Country Club is an amazing backdrop. We took this right before they entered the reception.

While we waited we took advantage of the time by making portraits of Emily and her bridesmaids.

It rained briefly so we switched our portraits to the front of White Memorial where there is an overhang.

We often try to get most of the portraits done before the ceremony to make more time for fun at the reception, so while I photographed the ladies, my second shooter, Sarah photographed the men. What a good looking group!

Thank goodness for telephoto lenses! Most area churches have rules for wedding photographers. At White Memorial Presbyterian they give us a great spot in the balcony to unobtrusivley photograph the event.

I think Eric is smiling because he has a beautiful wife, but also because he was able to drive a golf cart around at high speeds during their portrait.
