It is stunning! The building has gorgeous black and white checkered flooring, the most beautiful crystal chandeliers you have ever seen, and lovely columns.

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

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.

RALEIGH, NC NEWLYWED SESSION| MISTY AND CJ

    I have known Misty pretty much my entire life. We went to the same church and school growing up. We were also in the youth group together. Misty is always such a cheerful, fun-loving person. She is one of those people who just reminds you of a ray of sunshine! So when she approached me about taking some photographs of her and her husband, CJ, I was pretty excited!

    They just got married very recently. We took the photos at Cj and Misty's Raleigh home the day CJ was returning from a lengthy business trip from out West. He was such a good sport! If you can't tell from the photographs, these two are CRAZY about each other. They seriously look SO happy! Also, aren't their pups, Lucy and Dozier, adorable? I love when people include their fur babies in on their session <3
