Raleigh Wedding and Portrait Photographer


Welcome to Blended Light Photography!  I am Brad Ipock, a wedding and portrait photographer based in Raleigh, North Carolina.  It is my joy to work with clients across the region on their photography needs, and I have done so for over ten years!   Contact me today to get your event scheduled!


Areas Served in North Carolina

While I live in Zebulon, the easternmost town in Wake County, I serve all of the Triangle areas, including Wendell, Knightdale, Rolesville, Wake Forest, Raleigh, Apex, Cary, Garner, Clayton, Fuquay Varina, Holly Springs and Morrisville, as well as Chapel Hill and Durham.  

Additionally, I am available for travel across the great state of North Carolina and have photographed weddings in Winston Salem, High Point, Wilmington, North Topsail Beach, Havelock, New Bern, Benson and Smithfield. So, I add new cities to this list each year. 

Having grown up in eastern NC, I love being able to get back to my roots in areas like Greenville, Tarboro, Rocky Mount, Wilson, and Farmville.  

I will also consider, on a case-by-case basis, out-of-state travel.   


Raleigh and North Carolina Wedding Photography


My clients love working with me, not only for my outstanding image quality but also for the relaxed feel I bring to the events I shoot.  I believe everyone should receive visceral attention to detail during their wedding day as well fun, memorable images that transport emotion and capture the moments of your wedding.  


I provide wedding services all over North Carolina and travel further when necessary. I’ve been blessed to work with several amazing venues across the area including The Preston Woodall House in Benson, The Oaks at Salem in Apex, The Sutherland in Wake Forest, the Raleigh Crabtree Marriott, Grace Haven in Youngsville, Cedar Grove Acres in Creedmoor, Neuse Breeze Wedding Venue in Havelock and some other family locations.  


Whether you are planning an elegant late afternoon beach wedding or a more formal event with a large guest attendance, Blended Light Photography can cover it and present to you vibrant, beautiful images you'll cherish forever.  You can view a sampling of my work under my Wedding Gallery. If you have questions about me, connect with me through email or a quick phone call.  If you want some preparation thoughts about your event, my FAQ page has a lot of information on it.

High School and College Senior Images


First off, congratulations!   


Whether you are finishing your high school degree or your higher education degree, a senior session is a terrific way to document those times and showcase who you are and where you are going.  Often, high school seniors do not have plans on where to place their Senior Engagement, and most college seniors stay on campus and document the locations special to you during your time in college.  


I love to do images with your gown and some without to showcase you.  You've reached a bright destiny in your life, so take some time to enjoy the moment.  I've done a lot of work on the East Carolina, NCSU and UNC-CH campuses as they are central to my home in Zebulon, so my Portrait Gallery is a great place to see the fun when working with me!  Also, my FAQ page for Portraits is a great place to get a little more information to think about as we plan your Senior Session.


Family Portraiture - Studio

Over the years, studio has portraiture has fallen out of being the traditional form of creating family portraits.  However, it doesn't have to be a replacement.

Studio work from my home in Zebulon or your home is great way to create focused and beautiful images of you, your family or your children.  Studio work revolves completely around simple and flattering posing and flash work.  Whether we need a single light or multiple lights, studio sessions are a great, relaxed way to put the picture's focus where it should be - on the subject!

Family Portraiture - On-Location


Family photography is a preservation of the moment with a foreshadowing of the future.  Whether you desire an updated couple's portrait, are announcing the upcoming arrival of a new family member, or are just a full family and need updated pictures for displaying in the house, family pictures transcend time and become heirlooms within the family. Location, clothing choices, all play a part, but the real magic is letting your personality shine through in the pictures with smiles and laughs.


Locations for family shoots vary as much as every family does.  I've completed sessions at Fort Macon in Atlantic Beach, Umstead State Park in Raleigh, Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, on large farms, in local parks and family yards.  The location is your choice, one that should be important or fun for you and your family.  For samples of my family sessions, visit my Portrait Gallery or to get some tips, view the FAQs page.
