• what makes joe payne photography unique?

People who work with me do so because they enjoy my artistic vision in terms of use of available light and visual composition, but mostly because i work hard to combine those aesthetic aspects with my ability to anticipate and capture authentic moments as they unfold before my camera. emotion, light and composition is what i strive to bring forth with every image i produce for my clients.

What happens after a couple submits an inquiry to you?

Most of the time, i follow up the initial inquiry with an intro call where the bride and i can get to know each other a little. i really think it’s important we click personality-wise as we’re going to be together for quite a while on the big day! from there, i like to learn about the bride and groom and what they’re looking for with their coverage so i can put together some tailor-made photography collections to meet their needs.

Do you travel? if so, do you have limitations on where you will go?

Yep! despite, the “raleigh wedding photographer” tag, i travel pretty much anywhere and have shot weddings across north carolina, ohio, indiana, virginia, new york and jamaica.

• when can couples expect to see the finished work?

I average around 4-6 weeks after the wedding to provide proofs to my clients. every image i present is hand finished and polished. from there, i upload to dropbox, burn usb drives and design albums as and when the brides give me the ok on their selections.

• what is the best advice you have for engaged couples searching for the 'picture perfect' photographer?

Look at their portfolio in-depth and get a feeling for the consistency of the style of their work. if you want “safe” photos then go with the people that churn out the exact same kinds of images every wedding. if you want more personal photos reflecting the idiosyncrasies of your special day, then go with a documentary-style photographer and let them do their thing.

"Working with Joe at my wedding was an amazing experience. He was very focused and organized the day of the wedding and took the time and effort to get to know about my husband and me before the wedding. The pictures are spectacular and we could not be even more excited about the life long memories he was able to capture. I would definitely recommend Joe for your wedding."

"We had the honour of having Joe as our photographer for both our wedding in Wisconsin and during our engagement session at Duke Gardens. The photos turned out amazing as expected. His style captures real-life moments and great lighting. I would highly recommend Joe Payne Photography. Thank you so much, Joe!"
