  1. […] I had the pleasure of photographing Kendra & Matt’s wedding at Raleigh’s Historic Yates Mill Park a couple of weeks ago. The park is one of my favorite portrait locations in the Raleigh / Durham area, but I have never shot a wedding there. The ceremony was held in the outdoor amphitheater. We did a portrait session prior to the ceremony and used the gorgeous waterfall and mill as a background. Check out the cool art piece that they created during the ceremony. They had a few family members come up and pour different paint colors onto a canvas. The bride and groom finished it off with their colors and now they have a beautiful art piece and memento from the wedding. Officiant: Ann McKenzie […]
