We are NC Wedding Photographers

Hey there, we are The Bowmans and we are so excited to meet you! Jared and I are a husband and wife photography team based in Raleigh, North Carolina (but we'll go anywhere for our couples and we love to travel!). We specialize in Weddings, Engagements, and Couples Photography.  We love love love how awesome this area is, there are so many options for venues and session locations, the possibilities are endless!  We believe in making wedding and portrait photography affordable and accessible so you don't have to spend a fortune to have your memories preserved.

We both grew up in small towns in NC and met while in high school where we bonded over our love for video games and all things nerdy.  Several years of dating later we got married (yay!!) and we now have 2 crazy puppers Zoey and Ellie.  My background is in Art and I have a BFA from ECU (Go Pirates!!) where I studied Photography.  Jared’s background is in science, he has a BS in Chemistry and Biology from ECU as well as a Master’s in Science from UNCW.  He became interested in learning photography when I started the business in 2015, he’s taken to it quite well and makes sessions and weddings so much fun.  We love lazy weekends and scheming up home renovations in our spare time.
