This should be the most blissful time in your life.
You’re newly engaged and well wishes are flowing in, but there’s just one problem.
In all the excitement, you’ve traded the honeymoon period for Pinterest boards and projects. And while you’ve carefully curated each detail of your wedding with your unique relationship in mind, you’re worried that it will all go by so quickly and that your memories won’t do the magic of your day enough justice.
Your engagement and wedding day may feel like a blur, but your love story isn’t.
We have a soft spot for documenting the details that define your relationship, and we believe that your relationship deserves to be documented in all of its beauty.
As a husband and wife team, our highest priority is connecting with you as a couple to ensure we capture your full journey, not just your day. We work to create deeper relationships with our couples so that you’re completely at ease and at home with us as we come alongside you on a day as personal as your wedding day.
From intimate gatherings to decadent affairs, our crafted approach delivers heirloom images that celebrate your story’s unfolding.

A CHARLESTON WATERFRONT WEDDING
"Radhika and Ian are two of the most talented people I know and also the BEST decision we made for our wedding. R&I go out of their way to make everything PERFECT. Every communication was prompt, professional, and we knew we had nothing to worry about when our big day came around. We've made lifelong friends through this process and we hope you make YOUR best decision by using them as well."
- DC and Evan
A WEDDING AT THE MEADOWS, RALEIGH
"Radhika and Ian were our favorite vendors for our wedding. I am SO GLAD we chose them. They were so easy to work with, professional but relatable, and the pictures are absolutely stunning. We got so many compliments from our wedding guests and family about our photographers. Seriously book them. They are worth every penny and your photos are the only thing you have after the wedding. And any photos by Radian will be amazing."
- Victoria and Daniel
A WEDDING AT CAROLINA INN, CHAPEL HILL
"Radian Photography were the photographers we could have only dreamt to have. My husband and I walked into the process having high hopes, but zero clue what we were getting into. Not only did they meet that expectation but did so in a manner that was both professional and heartfelt."
When we asked them what they were most excited for, Jacqi and Hayden said, “The idea of everyone coming together and having a good time. Just having everyone we love and who has supported us to this point, being with us and sharing this special event.” Luckily, even COVID couldn’t keep them from realizing that dream for their wedding day. They celebrated with friends and family on a beautiful Fall day at the Carolina Inn with design completed by A Southern Soiree.
ENGAGEMENT PORTRAITS AT THE MEADOWS
"My fiance and I had a fantastic experience working with Radian Photography. We had the opportunity to work with Radhika for our engagement shoot and she is SO much fun. We laughed endlessly, which helped the first-time photo session effortless. I also love that they shoot both in film and digital to give your album a more dynamic feel. I'd absolutely recommend working with them to friends and family - and already have :)"
- Karina and Robbie
ENGAGEMENT PORTRAITS AT THE MUSEUM OF ART
"I cannot express just how impressed we were by the experience. Radhika and Ian made us feel so comfortable with the environment, giving us subtle pose suggestions and sweet words of encouragement along the way. The photos were breathtaking and brought me to tears. Aside from receiving the MOST gorgeous, well-thought out photos of our lives, from beginning to end, we truly felt taken care of and appreciated. I would HIGHLY recommend this talented duo to anyone looking for timeless photos."
- Lili and Markus
ENGAGEMENT PORTRAITS AT THE MIMS HOUSE
Designed for DC and Evan’s search for their favorite old fashioned cocktail recipe, this engagement session married their love for each other with their impeccable sense of taste. DC and Evan searched for the perfect ingredients, and inspired by her grandparents’ love of travel (seen in the matchbooks they collected from around the world), Amanda Blair by Design created a bar cart design that was perfect for their spring session at The Mims House.
CAROLINA GROVE BRIDAL PORTRAITS EDITORIAL
Inspired by the changing of the seasons, this bridal portrait session features details elegantly curated to invoke Autumn. The creative team wanted to play with the imagery of leaves falling and incorporated that motif into the styling and chose the venue for that reason. Set at the Carolina Grove, the backdrop of the leaves in fall became the perfect setting for these bridal portraits.
CAROLINA GROVE MONET WEDDING EDITORIAL
Inspired by Monet’s Water Lilies, this editorial features a stunning watercolor palette present in the stationery, cake, and a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown. The creative team on this editorial asked what Monet’s painting would have looked like if set in the fall season and designed around that. The resulting images include painterly details and a modern take on Impressionist art.
"Their understanding of love and how to capture it in a photo is so special."
"Their communication style is simple and direct, which took the pressure off of me as a bride and allowed me to be myself. I truly loved their presence and work, and look forward to working together to photograph our growing family in the future. Thank you both!"
- Trayce and Addison
"Seriously book them. They're worth every penny. Your photos are the only thing you have after the wedding."
"Radhika and Ian were our favorite vendors for our wedding. They were so easy to work with, and the pictures are absolutely stunning. They also surprised us a couple days after the wedding with a little video of the wedding day. We both were in tears after watching it."
- Victoria and Daniel
"If you want to remember it, you want Radian to be in charge of how you remember it."
"We would recommend Radian Photography to friends and family who want to memorialize moments in the most stunning way. They are equally good at catching side glimpses of intimate moments as they are with organizing strategic shots."
- Amy and Richard
