As a professional photographer, I am involved with many local groups in and around the Raleigh, NC area. Many of these are specific to wedding photography but one of the groups, the Triangle NACE organization, is one that involves many different aspects of the wedding industry, including photographers of course. The Triangle NACE chapter holds monthly meetings at different properties around the Raleigh, Durham & Chapel Hill areas. The purpose of these events is to both educate each other on the different aspects of wedding & events as well as a fundraiser for the Interfaith Food Shuttle. This event was held at the Greystone Inn located in Durham, NC. I was responsible for photographing the event for historical purposes as well as promotion.
As luck would have it, I also donated a prize to the raffle we have at each event. Prizes are donated by different wedding vendors with all of the proceeds benefiting the Interfaith Food Shuttle. On this occasion at the Greystone Inn, I donated a “business makeover” that consisted of a commercial photography session for the winners business. This is a pretty large prize as the photography, editing and licensing were all included. The winners of the auction was American Party Rentals. At the time of this post, I have already photographed their beautiful facility and will be making another post with that included.
If you have never been to the Greystone Inn, you really are missing something. The mansion has a storied history and was purchased from the Greystone family descendants by the current owners. They painstakingly renovated the entire property, including the furniture, to bring it back to its original beauty. I really have an affinity for historic architecture so, as you can imagine, I really enjoyed photographing this event. I’d like to thank the Triangle chapter of NACE, the Greystone Inn and everyone involved for this meeting. Now, on to the photos of this breatakingly beautiful facility.
