[art prints and portraiture, with a focus on moving life]

in transition--Richardson Fry Photography


Y'all know I got married right? in April of last year. It's been a blissfully amazing nine months and change--and a very very busy time, too! I am so thankful for all of my incredible clients!

I mean, look how GORGEOUS y'all are!

Well, with a change of name comes a change of business name. It's gonna be a little roller-coaster for a while, so while it is, PLEASE check at RichardsonFry.com for the changes and become a fan of Richardson Fry Photography on Facebook!

thanks so much!!

the baggett family: raleigh family photographer

I am very grateful for opportunities to donate my time and talent to charitable organizations! If ever the opportunity presents itself I always take advantage!

The Baggetts won their session in a raffle benefiting the March of Dimes, held by Rho. And they were awesome to work with! They have such cute little girls, and I had a great time photographing them!


allie + allan = married! cary wedding photographer

Hoo-boy, was this wedding amazing! The weather was perfect. The venue was amazing! The guests were so much fun! The bride and groom were stunning! And the lighting was unreal--I loved every picture-snapping second of it!

It took place at the incredible Page-Walker Arts & History Center in downtown Cary, the same place where we took Allie's bridal portraits. I can't say enough good things about this venue--so many great details, the amazing setup, the way the light looks when the sun sets--me oh my!

But let's get to the couple, shall we? This is Allie and Allan's favorite picture from their day. And it very well be mine, too. I love the way they're looking at each other!


and these napkins made me smile--and were great for a ring shot!


And there's a few things you should know about these photos...yes, everything really was that pretty. The dress, the rings, the gals--and yes, even the cupcakes. And yes, you're right about those both being the Mountaineers. They have an ongoing debate about who the real Mountaineers are--hence the picture.


Thanks again Allie and Allan!

happy first birthday, jacob!

I love getting to see the little ones grow up--they are so very precious! And it's astounding to see how much they change over a year!

We visited Downtown Durham (near and dear to my heart!) one fine Saturday morning, and little Jacob's cuteness was overwhelming! I love it!


amireh and khawaja families: durham family photographer

I've worked with half of this group for quite some time now, and it was great having them bring along family! I loved seeing the cousins interact, and seeing how the closeness between all of them is almost palpable. And it definitely didn't hurt that the light and weather were particularly glorious that day!


Pretty soon I'll be showing you the newborn photos I took of the Amireh's baby boy!

willodean and jason: durham engagement photographer

I have probably said it a hundred times and I'm sure I'll say it a couple hundred times more--I LOVE taking engagement pictures! I get to know so much about a couple and their personality, and they so dang FUN! I love it that Willodean and Jason had multiple "looks"--one of which was soft and romantic, see?


And then they had a dressy outfit, followed by a change of dress for Willodean. She had a sassy dress and amazing shoes-I love it! And it's always great working with a could that has a clear idea of what they want in their engagement pictures, but that also is willing to try whatever crazy ideas I suggest. For example: see that picture on the bottom right. I said "okay, stand right here and kiss. yes, next to those pipes." and the didn't bat an eye :)

lindsay + bob = married! cary wedding photographer

The Matthews House in Cary is GORGEOUS! I was amazed by all of the thought they put into every single detail of the day!

And Lindsay and Bob were ROCK STARS! I felt like I was working with real models--and I loved it! Check out their awesomeness!



I could've blogged all day about their wedding--the sentimental details (including the prayer book), the emotional moments, the crazy games of bamboozle, the hilarious groomsmen, the crazy dancing, and more! LOVE it! Go check out more of their photos in my recent weddings section here!

the warren family: hillsborough family photographer

I really love working with the Warren family! It's so much fun to see little A's personality develop--and he definitely has it in spades :) Such a cutie! Look at that awesome smile!


I love it, too, when I get to take parents of just the parents by themselves! So many tell me that their most recent pictures of just them are from their wedding many moons ago--so it's great to give them some updates!
