When River and Adam asked me to shoot their wedding portraits I was really excited.
Knowing them both as creatives and through art I had a feeling it would be something really different.
Adam is a visual artist and part of the DJ visual show Body Games. River is a maker and educator and creator of Riv Tak. Definitely check out both their work.
They decided on ‘the blue room’ at the Durham Fruit, which was also where their wedding would take place a week later. The Durham Fruit is a warehouse turned art space. It is used for theater, photography, dance and other live events. Although it has bee brought up to legal code, it is still very raw and gritty.
I have never had the opportunity to shoot wedding portraits outside of the wedding day. Usually my time with the couples is limited, and often there’s a feeling of hurry! or that we need to get back to the guests. This experience was so different. It was relaxed, low key and so much fun.
We spend hours in different spots in the warehouse, listening to music and laughing. And the result, as you’ll see, was absolutely stunning.
Congratulations to you my friends, your partnership is inspiring and your love infectious.
