Tamara photographed Abigail & Ray’s beautiful wedding at the bucolic Fearrington Inn in Pittsboro, North Carolina. When Abigail called to say that she and Ray were traveling from New York to North Carolina to get married at the Fearrington, we hit it off on the phone right away. I knew that Abigail would be a particularly fun subject to shoot since she’s not just a Ford model, but she’s specifically a bridal model, having graced the cover of Modern Bride more than once (among a variety of other covers). And when I got to meet both Abigail & Ray when they came to Raleigh, they were both so excited about planning their wedding and even more excited about being together – they had an infectious enthusiasm for each other and their friends & family…

Final touches…

This shot was FUN – Abigail showed me an ad that she’d done, and we both loved the pose and feel of it. It also happened to be one of Ray’s favorite images, so we created this particular image of Abigail on their wedding day.

Abigail & her father are really close and shared more than a couple of touching moments before the ceremony.

Some gorgeous details..

A final moment with dad…

We photographed Abigail & Ray together, alone for the first time all day, at the perfect early evening hour…

My absolute favorite image from the day, and it was quite tough to narrow down. (Plus, doesn’t Ray have cool hair??)

In The Barn….twinkly lights and gorgeous candles everywhere…

Congratulations Abigail & Ray! I’m looking forward to seeing the wedding in Modern Bride, I’m sure it’ll look amazing. Thanks so much for asking me to shoot your wedding and for trusting me to capture everything. I am honored that you chose me to photograph such a special experience for you both.
