Mallory's River Forest Manor Bridal Portraits

Back in July, I spent the afternoon with Mallory and some good friends at The River Forest Manor in Belhaven, NC. It is an amazing venue for a wedding and the entire facility was recently restored to its original character with plenty of southern sophistication and elegance. It is 13,000 square feet and has 13 guest rooms, marina access and the ability to host up to 500 wedding guests. 

It was an extremely hot North Carolina summer day, but we were greeted with a smile by the events manager Montana, and we had a wonderful time shooting inside and outside of the manor house. Here are just some of my favorite images we made during the afternoon before the storm clouds moved in and soaked everything in sight.

This session was photographed using a combination of the groundbreaking Sony a9 camera system and a vintage, 35mm Nikon F100 film camera on Portra 800 film. Film scans by Richard Photo Lab in Los Angeles, CA. Images from the wedding are coming soon. Until then, enjoy.
