Peyton + Gabriel | Wedding Preview

-Posted by Mark

This is Peyton & Gabriel. They flew me over to Wilmington, N.C. a few months ago for their engagement session and last weekend was their wedding. With only 10% chance of rain the week leading up to their wedding day – apparently mother nature saved it all up for their ceremony. Fortunately – that didn’t stop Peyton or Gabriel – and if the bride & groom aren’t waiting for the rain, neither am I.

So it rained. And we hung out. It rained harder. We stepped out into it. And shot.

I was totally unprepared gear-wise. Fortunately, my gear is as ridiculous as I am and like an extension of myself – it’s always up for the challenge. (Okay – I know, I know, that was probably a bit too far in the personification of my camera gear.)


Peyton told me that she was having a wedding at the beach, but not a beach wedding. With that in mind, I assembled my team – Alumni Intern Jenna, and Current Intern Tricia. We left Atlanta at 4am, arrived 7 hours later, grabbed a cup of coffee and started shooting.

The weekend was awesome. Peyton & Gabriel were even better than that.

DDR Break!

Peyton & Gabriel, Thank You.

    I think this couple brings out the best in you 🙂 Their engagement session was gorgeous and this beach preview is rockin’. Like, that shot of their backs as they look out at the water? Print it large, frame it, place over the sofa, and bask in it, good.
