Governor's Inaugural Ball | Marbles Childrens Museum. Raleigh, North Carolina

First off, I still cannot believe that I got to photograph the Governor's Inaugural Ball. I voted for Roy Cooper and was so happy when his win was finally declared!!! It was an exciting day. I heard it on the news in the car. I whooped! When I first found out that I could photograph it, I was SO THRILLED!!! You wouldn't believe how excited I was. I did a little happy dance in my office.

That day, I showed up early and watched all the behind the scenes. There was a lot. Security, flowers, the chefs, watching all the wonderful people at the Junior League of Raleigh have to combine the Council of State Reception with the Inaugural Ball, it was amazing how they pulled that off last minute with a snow storm on it's way. Watching the crew for The Avett Brothers set up the stage, sound equipment and instruments. That was cool. Getting to see and photograph The Avett Brothers play, SOOOOO AMAZING.

Getting to photograph this event, it was once in a lifetime COOL (I hope not!)!! Here are just a few images.

Dustin & Stephanie | North Caroline Museum of Natural Sciences. Raleigh, NC

I met with Dustin and Stephanie at the Museum to discuss possibly shooting their wedding and we just clicked. We talked about all those things you only talk about after you've been friends with someone for awhile. We talked for something like, three hours. I laughed and laughed. They are a hysterical couple and I am so glad that I had this chance to get to know them and become instant friends. She's a talker too, so she balances out my instinct to just sit and listen. 

Dustin and Stephanie love science and dinosaurs and reptiles and animals of all kinds (especially Stephanie), so their wedding at the Museum of Natural Sciences fit them perfectly. Their officiant even talked about the size and scope of the universe and how there are just so many people on this beautiful planet that it is so amazing that they got to find one another at all. In all of this planet's time. It made me tear up, it was so touching. So, the theme of their wedding was in every single aspect of their wedding. You could see it in their new photo album, to their Jurassic flowers to the wedding location. This wedding was planned perfectly for them. 

Thank you so much for inviting me along. Love you guys.
