JC RAULSTON ARBORETUM BRIDAL PORTRAITS| COURTNEY

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of meeting Courtney and her mother at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC for her bridal portraits session! Courtney's lace wedding dress and seersucker print Jack Roger sandals were perfect for her session. Her monogrammed wedding veil also complemented her ensemble! She also wanted to include her grandmother's and mother's wedding rings in the shoot. I love it when my TR Brides want to include family heirlooms into their wedding!

  We had some cloudy weather for Courtney's bridal session and we even got caught in an unexpected summer shower, but this sweet bride didn't let that damper her session at all! Enjoy some of my favorites from her shoot!

APEX, NC LIFESTYLE NEWBORN SESSION| FELICITY

     Carrie and Nate met while they were both living in Washington DC through an online dating site. They went to trivia night for their first date ,and later got engaged while they were hiking in Virginia. Nate proposed with his nanny's wedding ring ( Yay for family heirlooms!). They were married in April 2015, and now they're embarking on the sweet journey of parenthood. Felicity's name is so special too as she is named for Carrie and Nate's grandparents. I love the sentiment of that!

      I met Carrie and Nate through a past client of mine, so when they reached out about a lifestyle newborn session I was so stoked! Baby Felicity did an AMAZING job on her newborn session! She slept almost the entire time and was just way too cute!

DURHAM, NC ADOPTION ANNOUNCEMENT| AJ AND BRANDY

     We met AJ and Brandy when we first started attending a class for newlyweds at our church. I think the have the neatest story! They met in Georgia while Brandy was getting her Master's degree. At the time, things didn't really go anywhere between them. She later moved to New Orleans. As it turned out, AJ had also relocated to New Orleans to play baseball. During this time, they reconnected and began dating and eventually they got married!

     I was so happy when they approached me for their pictures. What made it even more exciting was that they had a big announcement to share---they're adopting!! I'm so excited for them as they embark on this new adventure

THE BEST OF TR COUPLES 2017

I seriously can NOT believe we are quickly approaching the end of 2017. To be honest, I feel like the year just started! This year has been absolutely amazing for Tierney Riggs Photography. It has been a year of change and growth! This has been my busiest year yet, so I thought it would be appropriate to share some of my favorite photos from this amazing year! This post will include pictures from bridal sessions, weddings, engagement sessions, and anniversary sessions! Enjoy!
