Good morning! Yep. I’m posting to Insta with no makeup on. This is how I look 99% of the time, lol! In a past life, I spent my time in an office and was all about that primping game. One of the perks of working from home is not having to constantly worry about putting on my “pretty” face and a nice suit just to impress my co workers or one up that mean ‘Karen chick in accounting 😂 Today, I’m out here early getting a bit of yard work done and then I’ll be heading out to Cedar Rock Park for a quick hike. I’ve always wanted to check out that park because it looks like a great location to hold a shoot so today is kind of a semi recon mission in addition to a nice excuse to walk in the woods. 🌿 In other news, I’ve also been keeping tabs on the weather forecast for this weekend since I’ve got an engagement session scheduled in Angier NC for Sunday evening. Unfortunately it’s looking like we might get rained out, ugh! I mean taking pictures of birds and lakes is cool but omg, I’m really missing working with clients! My job is so much fun and I can’t wait to get back into it :) . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography 2 months ago by @sally_siko

I think it’s so sweet when couples exchange love notes before their wedding ceremony. This is a portrait of Jenn reading her letter from John in the last few minutes before the ceremony began. . . . #realweddingsnc #Hotspringsweddingphotographer #Hotspringsweddingphotography #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #Ashevilleweddingphotographer #Ashevilleweddingphotography #ncweddingphotographer #asheville #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #hotspringsnc #mountainlovers #mountainwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #booneweddingphotographer #booneweddingphotography #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography 3 months ago by @silvercord_asheville
Buying your first home together as husband and wife is an awesome milestone! It’s where together, you’ll make dinner, raise your children, plan adventures and create solid foundation from which to build upon your ‘forever after dreams. It’s in this spirit of the place called home that Morgan and Dana asked me if I could take a portrait of the two of them on their front porch in the first home that they bought together. Cheers to what comes next! . . . . . #chapelhillweddingphotographer #chapelhillweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #weddings #raleighweddingphotos #chapelhill #naturalcolorweddingphotography #backyardwedding #backyardweddings #americandream #homeownership #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #instawedding 3 months ago by @sally_siko
I arrived at the cabin where Jenn and her bridesmaids were getting ready and found her crew sitting on the bed writing messages on the bottom of Jenn’s wedding shoes. I thought it was a very sweet tradition and was curious as to what they wrote. The messages were bible verses about love and kind words of encouragement for the path ahead. . . . #realweddingsnc #Hotspringsweddingphotographer #Hotspringsweddingphotography #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #Ashevilleweddingphotographer #Ashevilleweddingphotography #ncweddingphotographer #asheville #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #hotspringsnc #mountainlovers #mountainwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #booneweddingphotographer #booneweddingphotography #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #wedding2020 3 months ago by @silvercord_asheville
It’s amazing the difference that’s made when you make a slight turn away from the light and adjust the exposure on the camera. This wedding portrait of Morgan and Dana was captured in the same spot of the previous post but with slight tweaks in camera and an angle change. 🌿 It’s funny, I never thought about becoming a professional photographer growing up. I’ve been an artist in one way or another throughout my life however I expressed myself with pencil, pen, paint and tattoo ink. Photography was something that I fell in love with for the technology aspect. I enjoy the challenge of figuring out the settings to match the photo that I see in my mind even before I push the shutter. It’s a decision making process that I’ll literally make a thousand times on a wedding day in a matter of milliseconds. Tbh, I’m still on the fence as to wether I can call what I do “Art” but there is definitely a familiar creative process employed with every shot. . . . . . #chapelhillweddingphotographer #chapelhillweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #weddings #raleighweddingphotos #chapelhill #naturalcolorweddingphotography #backyardwedding #backyardweddings #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #instawedding 3 months ago by @sally_siko
It has been said that real love stories never have endings. I like that :) 🌿 This portrait was captured in Dana and Morgan’s front yard. I don’t often use the sunlight in this way, but always wanted to try creating a portrait that looks like this. It’s pretty cool to have a job where my clients are up for allowing me to experiment with new photo techniques (in addition to my expected style of shooting). After a decade of documenting weddings, couples like these two are the reason that I will continue to grow as a photog. . . . . #chapelhillweddingphotographer #chapelhillweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #weddings #raleighweddingphotos #chapelhill #naturalcolorweddingphotography #backyardwedding #backyardweddings #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #instawedding 3 months ago by @sally_siko
Morgan and Dana are big time nature lovers (like me!) so the fact that they wanted their couples portraits taken in their camp hammock did not surprise me. Love that! 🌿. Trip update...

Morgan did a lovely job delivering his vows. I could tell he was nervous at first, but with Dana beaming at him, he relaxed and pulled them off without a hitch :) 🌿. Trip update.... Oh my, we arrived in Plum Borough and pulled the RV into my brother in laws driveway at 11pm in the pouring rain. Lol, after driving though those storms I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to finally get off of the road! 🌿. Apparently it’s still wintertime up here because I woke up to see snow falling in the backyard.

Dana and Morgan held their ceremony in the backyard of the first house that they bought together. I think that’s pretty cool!

Loved capturing the last few moments before the ceremony started when Dana made her appearance in the doorway.

The second pic/clip in this post is from my time driving near Carlisle PA. The fields are getting green and super pretty outside. I used to live here and it’s so great to get to see mountains again.

With just a few minutes left to go before start time, Dana’s mother fastened the last couple of buttons on her dress. I love documenting bridal prep.

A close up of the simple yet sweet details of the stairwell decor... Here are some tips to keep your floral arrangements looking their best on your wedding day... 🌸Keep fresh flowers away from drafts and extreme temperatures, which can quickly dry out the flowers and cause wilting. 🌹If your flowers came in plastic, remove this as soon as possible. 🌺Do not place your arrangement near fruit or in the path of cigarette smoke. The ethylene gas is detrimental to many flower types. 🌼Avoid placing flower arrangements in windowsills and other areas with full sun where flowers can wilt due to overheating. 🌷Most flowers will last longer under cool conditions. . . . . #chapelhillweddingphotographer #chapelhillweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #weddings #raleighweddingphotos #chapelhill #naturalcolorweddingphotography #backyardwedding #backyardweddings #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #instawedding 3 months ago by @sally_siko

Birdseed is a wonderful alternative to throwing rice at the conclusion of a wedding ceremony.

The sun was shining and there was a warm breeze in the air as I started taking pictures in their backyard which is where the ceremony would be held.

It’s fun to try and capture truly candid portraits of wedding guests during the reception. Events like this are opportunities to deliver moments in time that my clients would never get a chance to see. It’s about catching people in conversations and developing relationships with one another as they celebrate together. 🌿 Lately, I’ve seen quite a few photographers out there that use the word “candid” or ““photojournalistic” to describe the images that they’re posting. The problem is that when you look at the bulk of the images in their portfolios they are filled with shots of people which are obviously posed and looking directly into the camera. I’m not sure if people even understand or care what “candid” means anymore. . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #riverridgegolfclubwedding #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #weddings #raleighweddingphotos #riverridgegolfclub #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #instawedding 3 months ago by @sally_siko
Have I mentioned how much I love photographing wedding receptions in a tent? It’s cool to take pictures under a canopy like this one at the River Ridge Golf Club because I’m able to bounce the light coming from my flash off of the ceilings and onto my subjects.

I’m a big fan of cloudy skies during portrait time, especially in open areas like at this golf course. The clouds diffuse the harshness of direct sunlight which means it’s as easy as it gets to capture a nicely balanced exposure seen here in one of Ryan and Kayla’s wedding portraits. 🌿.

I’ve been trying to learn how to get better at what I do along the way because my intent is to serve people with the very best of what I’ve got in my creative/ technical bag. This mindset requires constant internal review and adjustments to my ego as an artist. I’m drawn to challenges because the work required to overcome them is how growth happens. It’s a process like any other I guess. :) Tbh, sometimes I wish that I’ll never get to a point where I’ll have all the answers when it comes to the art of photography because Lord knows I enjoy a good chase, lol! 🌿 I took this picture of Ryan and Kayla using a lens that I’ve owned forever but never use. I kinda like the results but am armed with new knowledge that I’ll use to improve during my next shoot on Sunday. I can’t wait to get back out there with my Canons :) . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #riverridgegolfclubwedding #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #raleighweddingphotos #riverridgegolfclub #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #instawedding #instawed 3 months ago by @sally_siko
Officially Mr.&Mrs. :) So yes, although the majority of the photographs that I capture during the couples “formal portrait session” (or throughout a wedding day for that matter) are candid in nature, I will of course take portraits like this where people are looking into the lens. It’s important to me that my couples receive images that reflect who they are from multiple viewpoints. I also recognize that many of these photographs will be given to family members who would be far likely to want to display a photo like this on their walls then one where my couples are making out, lol! No one sort is better then the other though, each approach has it’s long term value :) . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #traditionalwedding #riverridgegolfclubwedding #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #raleighweddingphotos #riverridgegolfclub #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #instawedding #instawed 3 months ago by @sally_siko
I loved taking pictures at @riverridgegolf that evening. The grounds are well kept and the Club’s wedding coordinator Miranda Day was as nice as could be :) 🌿 Ryan, Kayla and their crew arrived on site right after their ceremony ended so that we could get started with the formal pics before their reception started. The light was nice and mellow, totally perfect for capturing portraits on the greens. . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #riverridgegolfclubwedding #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #raleighweddingphotos #riverridgegolfclub #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #instawedding #instawed 3 months ago by @sally_siko

Sealing the deal with a kiss :) Congratulations Ryan and Kayla! 🌿. I read a story today about a couple in Charlotte NC who have just celebrated their 82nd wedding anniversary. The advice they give to others in regards to the longevity of their union in this... "I don't have no secret for that, just be nice to each other.” Sounds like good advice to me! https://www.wsoctv.com/amp/news/local/-just-be-nice-to-each-other-local-couple-married-82-years-says-no-secret-to-long-life/935861948?__twitter_impression=true 🌿 Mine is to take that part of “for better and for worse” line seriously. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the way that my husband has graciously allowed me fail at something while encouraging me to push myself harder to achieve my entrepreneurial dreams. When I’ve made mistakes, he’s the first one to call me on it and the first one to roll up his sleeves to get to work in helping me overcome whatever challenge I’m facing. He’s got my back, for better and worse. And I’ve got his. :) What’s your best advice? . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #riverridgegolfclubwedding #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #raleighweddingphotos #riverridgegolfclub #marriage #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #instawedding #instawed 3 months ago by @sally_siko

Ryan and Kayla’s wedding ceremony at the Ebenezer Church in Raleigh was just the sweetest :) It was a little challenging working out the white balance for the photos inside the church because of the mixed lighting coming from the warm overhead lights and the cool daylight filtering through the windows. No, worries I enjoy figuring this kind of thing out :) . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #riverridgegolfclubwedding #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #raleighweddingphotos #riverridgegolfclub #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #instawedding #instawed 3 months ago by @sally_siko

Caught the grandmother having her boutonniere applied to her dress while standing in the hallway as the girls got dressed. I think that it is important to catch things like this on a wedding day.

A couple of weeks ago, I had the honor of photographing Ryan and Kayla’s wedding day. It was absolutely lovely from start to finish :) This is a portrait of Kayla getting her veil fastened by one of her bridesmaids during prep time.

Gregg and I arrived at the couple’s venue, the Liberty Baptist Church just before the ceremony started.

Received an inquiry this evening about photographing a wedding at Vizcaya Villa this summer :) I hope that the couple ends up booking the date because if their pictures turn out as well as this one taken at that venue, then I’ll be one happy wedding photog. 🌿 . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #timelessweddingphotos #eternalwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #vizcayavilla 3 months ago by @sally_siko
As Kristina, Andrey, Gregg and I made our way down the trail to the parking lot, Andrey asked if we could drive to another location nearby to take a few more portraits! See, this adventurous spirit is exactly what I love the most about my Silvercord couples! Of course I said yes so off we went... 🌿 The next set of photos were captured in a Alpine area at the top of the mountain. The trees at this altitude were stunted by the wind which was now whipping by at a furious pace. The couple and I made our way into a thicket of rhododendrons and we stopped in a spot that was (mostly) sheltered from the winds. What a joy it was to capture these beautiful exposures on the trail as Andrey and Kristina snuggled together :) . . . #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #Ashevilleweddingphotographer #Ashevilleweddingphotography #ncweddingphotographer #asheville #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #mountainlovers #mountainwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #mountainweddings #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #blueridgeparkway #craggygardens #craggypinacle #blueridgemountains #ncoutdoors #hiking 3 months ago by @silvercord_asheville

One of the things that I enjoy about wedding photography is the challenge of finding and then capturing candid portraits of all kinds of people, not just the bride and groom. It’s about reading the room and gauging the temperature of the emotions of everyone around me. I seek these micro moments when the eyes sparkle and the smile arrives as seen in this pic of the maid of honor during prep time at the Highgrove Estate. It’s about lighting, color and composition but so much more, it is about the people and their relationships they share with one another. . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #highgroveestatewedding #highgroveestatenc #fuquayvarina #fuquayvarinaweddingphotographer #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography 3 months ago by @sally_siko
You just never know what you’ll find when rounding the next bend on the trail. I was inspired by these beautiful orange leaves while capturing A & K’s wedding portraits and just had to incorporate them in the shot.

Couldn’t be happier that #engagementseason has arrived! I’ve got several sessions scheduled over the next few weeks here in the Raleigh area that I’m excited about. These shoots are a lot of fun! It’s an opportunity for me to get to know my couples before their wedding day and for them to get a sneak preview on my approach to the job. 🌿.

Now that we were walking in the woods, the wind had died down completely and there was a solemn velvety hush enveloping the forest. Our footsteps were silent upon the wet leaves, the only sound was the occasional bird call and the song of raindrops. The fog slipped through the trees scattering a breathtaking silver light which reflected off of everything. This was exactly the photo scenario I’d been hoping for when I first saw the cloudy mountains earlier in the day. . . . #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #Ashevilleweddingphotographer #Ashevilleweddingphotography #ncweddingphotographer #asheville #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #mountainlovers #mountainwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #blueridgeparkway #craggygardens #craggypinacle #blueridgemountains #ncoutdoors #hiking 3 months ago by @silvercord_asheville
Arrived in Chapel Hill a little early for the wedding today. Am sitting in my truck going over my notes for the afternoon ahead trying to keep the butterflies at bay. It’s funny that even after ten years of shooting I still get hella nervous before photographing a wedding. Like, I know it’s going to be awesome and there’s very little out there that could possibly mess me up but still, it’s like this rush of adrenaline overwhelms me. The 10 mins or so before I head into a venue are always the time to collect my thoughts and calm the nerves. 🤣 One cool thing is this is the first time in about a month that it’s been sunny outside while shooting. It’s nice to see blue skies and the first green leaves appearing now that spring is around the corner. Hoping that this backyard wedding will be as awesome as I’m expecting it will be. Lol, I’ve just noticed in my side mirror that there are even deer wandering around this neighborhood! . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #timelessweddingphotos #eternalwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography 3 months ago by @sally_siko

This is one of my favorite portraits that I’ve ever taken immediately following a wedding ceremony. It’s a simple image, a capture of love and peace all wrapped up in a beautiful moment. Documenting family connections is such an important element of my job. I couldn’t imagine covering a wedding any other way. 🌿. Speaking of family, things have been very interesting here at the Siko home. My daughter officially acquired her learners driving permit a few days ago and we’ve been going out driving every day since. It’s scary but not because she’s doing anything wrong, lol! My kiddo is actually doing a great job keeping the truck in between the lines and is nailing her speeds. It’s just the simple fact that it is incredibly weird to sit in the passenger’s seat with my baby driving. This day arrived waaaay to fast ;) . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #timelessweddingphotos #eternalwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography 3 months ago by @sally_siko
This is what couples wedding portraits should look like in my own opinion. Moments of joy and genuine connection shared between husband and wife on the day it all became real. That’s the good stuff!

Recently I was asked if I took pictures of the details during a wedding day. Here’s my answer.... Oh, heck yes! The reason why you don't see a ton of these photos in my public portfolio is because I operate on a "people first philosophy" in the presentation of my portfolio. This means that my primary focus objective when photographing a wedding day is to capture people and their emotional interactions with one another with less emphasis on the decor or inanimate things. This doesn't mean that I don't capture detail shots though! I absolutely love taking pretty photos of the things like your dress, shoes, ring, bouquet, ect! (yay!) These details are an important element when putting together your complete wedding day story. Lol, I will even take pictures of your food during your reception so that 20 years from now you won't forget what you ate that night :) . . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #timelessweddingphotos #eternalwedding #weddingdetails #weddingshoes #weddingday #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography 4 months ago by @sally_siko

Recently I was asked if I took pictures of the details during a wedding day. Here’s my answer.... Oh, heck yes! The reason why you don't see a ton of these photos in my public portfolio is because I operate on a "people first philosophy" in the presentation of my portfolio. This means that my primary focus objective when photographing a wedding day is to capture people and their emotional interactions with one another with less emphasis on the decor or inanimate things. This doesn't mean that I don't capture detail shots though! I absolutely love taking pretty photos of the things like your dress, shoes, ring, bouquet, ect! (yay!) These details are an important element when putting together your complete wedding day story.

Now that the wedding party photos were done (for now) it was time to create some mountain magic! Gregg and I first photographed Andrey and Kristina sharing a few quiet moments together in the field. The wind swirled Kristina’s veil around in the most delightful way which ended up looking pretty awesome in the photos. . . . #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #Ashevilleweddingphotographer #Ashevilleweddingphotography #ncweddingphotographer #asheville #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #timelessweddingphotos #eternalwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #blueridgeparkway #craggygardens #craggypinacle #blueridgemountains #ncoutdoors #hiking 4 months ago by @silvercord_asheville
Once we reached the clearing the top of the hill along the Craggy Gardens trail, Greg and I took a bunch of photos of Andrey, Kristina and their wedding party. Though the wind was howling and the fog was as thick as pea soup, the photos were absolutely gorgeous! The couple and their friends were just as cheerful as could be in the face of this insane weather. I love days like this! . . . . #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #Ashevilleweddingphotographer #Ashevilleweddingphotography #ncweddingphotographer #asheville #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #timelessweddingphotos #eternalwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #blueridgeparkway #craggygardens #craggypinacle #blueridgemountains #ncoutdoors #hiking #ncoutdoors 4 months ago by @silvercord_asheville
That moment when you just got married and all of your friends meet you in the hallway behind the sanctuary to congratulate ya! This picture was taken at Jen & Brian’s wedding in Raleigh just a few minutes after their ceremony ended. I love how happy they are!!! 🍁. I’m currently sitting in the parking lot of the DMV with my daughter as she’s doing last minute test prep to try and get her learners permit. Honestly it’s a super weird mom mom moment because I remember being in this exact situation when I was her age. She’s nervous and excited. Me too :) . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #timelessweddingphotos #eternalwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography 4 months ago by @sally_siko
We wrapped up D& K’s wedding portraits on grassy hill next to the High Vista Club. I enjoyed every second working with this sweet couple. Moments like this are what it is all about. What an incredible day! . . . #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #Ashevilleweddingphotographer #Ashevilleweddingphotography #ncweddingphotographer #asheville #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #timelessweddingphotos #eternalwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemountains #ncoutdoors 4 months ago by @silvercord_asheville

~Sorting Wedding Photos In 60 Seconds~ Here’s a behind the scenes look at my workflow this morning sorting unedited photos for post processing from this past weekends wedding at River Ridge. I’ve managed to get through the first round before lunchtime and am going through the second now. Lol, it’s a tough go of it! There were so many sweet moments that it’s difficult to choose which ones will make the final cut. Tbh, it’s not a bad problem to have ;) Hope you’re having a great Monday! . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #timelessweddingphotos #eternalwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography 4 months ago by @silvercordphotodaily

Had an incredible time at Ryan & Kayla’s wedding at the River Ridge Golf Club yesterday! Lol, I couldn’t wait to see the pics this morning after backing up the files.

It was awesome to have a chance to spend time with D&K on their wedding day. With smiles like these, they provided me with plenty of great opportunities to capture couples portraits before and after their ceremony. Absolutely loved every single second working with them :) . . . . #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #Ashevilleweddingphotographer #Ashevilleweddingphotography #ncweddingphotographer #asheville #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #timelessweddingphotos #eternalwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemountains #ncoutdoors 4 months ago by @silvercord_asheville
It’s the real emotions that I’m looking for because it’s about more than pretty pictures and stylized moments that look good on an Insta scroll. I want to catch ya when your smiling, but not because I told you to do so :) . . . . . #raleighweddingphotographer #raleighweddingphotography #realweddingsnc #documentarystyleweddingphotographernc #documentarystyleweddingphotographync #ncweddingphotographer #raleigh #silvercordeventphotography #ncweddingphotographer #realcolors #timelessweddingphotos #eternalwedding #naturalcolorweddingphotography #candidstyleweddingphotos #thenatureofweddingphotography #weddingphotography 4 months ago by @sally_siko
