duke chapel wedding photography – sara’s bridal session

Duke Chapel Weddings

Sara & Ross tied the knot in a truly beautiful wedding at Duke Chapel this past Saturday and I’m looking forward to sharing some images from their gorgeous day really soon. In the meantime, I’m pleased to be able to share some photos from Sara’s recent bridal photography session. This was a fun but challenging shoot as it started raining pretty heavily just a few minutes into the session and then rained off and on for the duration. This meant that we were restricted to shooting under cover a lot of the time, which forced me to think differently and get creative to obtain the widest variety of images possible whilst keeping Sara and her beautiful Pronovias dress and Jimmy Choo shoes dry and clean. So we worked a variety of scenarios in and around the arcades and in the covered areas around the chapel. Kudos to Sara for being truly up for getting down (literally) and being willing to sit on steps, window sills, etc. to get the shot. I think we made a pretty good team!

As you can see, Sara made a truly radiant bride. She looked amazing and was super fun to work with. She’s currently sunning herself down in Cabo with her hubby, but I want to thank her for going above and beyond to make the shoot a success.

Here are just some of my favourite photos from the session. Have a great week everyone!

duke chapel & carolina inn weddings – angel & jeff
If you've seen my last post, you'll know how much I enjoy shooting at Duke Chapel and the Carolina Inn. Well, lightning struck twice in August and I got to shoot at the same two venues for Angel & Jeff's beautiful wedding. Such a great couple and so easy going; they basically stood back and let me do my thing. Between the ceremony and reception, we got to spend some time on the grounds at Duke before heading across to Duke Gardens for a quick portrait session. Angel looked amazing in her gorgeous dress and chapel-length veil, which caught the light beautifully as the sun began to set. Of course, Jeff looked pretty dapper too!! From there, ...
