As I mentioned yesterday, beautiful vineyard, beautiful light, beautiful couple. Enough said.


Told you this was a fun group!

Zeynep and Bruce were married at Childress Vineyards on a GORGEOUS day in June. They are such a fun couple to work with and their bridal party and family proved to be the same. From our initial meeting at Starbucks, I knew that this would be great wedding and it was more than I expected. You can truly feel how excited these two are about marrying one another just by looking at these images. Zeynep is originally from Turkey and it was so lovely to seem some of her Turkish traditions incorporated into the day.

Stay tuned tomorrow for Part II. Beautiful vineyard, beautiful light, beautiful couple- you don’t want to miss it!

I had a great time with Jessica and Kyle at their engagement session! For the first half of the session, we ran around the city and stopped at various spots that I had scouted or that stood out along the way. This made for such variety in the backgrounds and locations that we had to work with and I love that. The 2nd half of the shoot was geared toward a common love that Jessica and Kyle share- sports! We started out by reenacting their first date of tailing gating before a game and finished up at the Panthers stadium. Jessica and Kyle were a little nervous about being in front of the camera at first, but I think they look like naturals in these images, wouldn’t you agree?

Jessica and Kyle, thanks for such a great time. I am so looking forward to your wedding in October!

Jessica and Kyle shared some Dales Pale Ale on their first date so I suggested they bring a couple cans along. I love it when couples incorporate their story into their session, it makes things so personal.


Angela Tucker is looking for a 2nd shooter to shoot alongside during weddings. I hope to add one or two people to my list of shooters. I like to shoot with the same people as much as possible so they know how I operate during a wedding and vice-verse, so this would be an on going relationship and I would plan to use you regularly. This is a paid position- as mentioned you would be shooting along side me, but also going out on your own while shooting the groom and groomsman and any details I might ask you to capture. If chosen, I will ask you to assist myself and my current second shooter in at least two weddings in order to see how we work together. This is a great portfolio building opportunity!

Some requirements-

  • Must have your own equipment at lease 1-2 professional lenses.
  • Must be able to shoot in manual mode
  • Must shoot in RAW format
  • Must be able to work casually and comfortably with people of the same and opposite sex, as well as have fun!

If you are interested please email a link to your portfolio or at least 10 downsized portfolio images to angela{at}angela-tucker{dot}com or contact me through the contact tab.

…and because every post needs an image, here is a couple of my little peanut. Except he is not so little anymore, just turned 11 months old here. 🙂

About a month ago, I got the pleasure of hosting a Storybook Themed Baby Shower for my best friend, Amy along with our other best friend, Heather. Since I am approaching the big 3-0 this year, I kinda feel like using the term ‘best friend’ should be retired, but there truly is no other way to describe these girls and how much they mean to me. Amy’s sweet girl, Lanier Elizabeth (Lanie Beth) is due to arrive anytime and we are so excited to meet her! Amy is just now approaching 36 weeks but because she has not had the most typical pregnancy (she went into labor at 27 weeks, it was stopped, and she has been on bed rest ever since) we are so thankful that Lanie Beth has held out this long and we are totally okay with her making her appearance anytime!

Because I was hosting the shower, greeting guests, and tending to my baby who was feeling just enough under the weather to want his mommy the entire time, the 6 images you see above were the only ones I was able to get at the shower. Luckily I had the chance to get outside with Chris and Amy and get some maternity shots of the 2 of them and I love how they turned out. Is Amy not so adorable pregnant?
