Umstead Hotel and Spa Wedding - Kasey and Greg

There's a sense of zen at the Umstead Hotel and Spa. From the helpful staff, the light fragrance all around, to the dimly lit corridors and rooms. Beautifully furnished and elegantly decorated. The Umstead Hotel and Spa has become one of Raleigh's most appealing wedding venues. We love working at this venue, as we know they follow our goals too. Give the client the best experience ever.

I met Kasey and Greg at the hotel, finding Kasey getting ready in the bridal suite and Greg hanging out with the guys on the balcony near the bar. One thing we love to do at the studio is capture the energy and excitement before the ceremony. Within an hour of arriving, we've captured the details, the getting ready and often some candid, fun group portraits. It's important to keep these moments real and not too coordinated. I'll only often ask a bride or groom to move to better light. It's all about the light and the emotions.
