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!

A couple of Sundays ago, I got up early headed over to Durham for a Duke Chapel engagement photography session with Brianna and Chris, whose wedding I will be documenting at Duke Chapel next summer. Given they live in the DC area, we hadn't had the chance to meet in person yet, so we got together for a cup of hot chocolate at the amazing Cocoa Cinnamon and headed on over to Duke to get some pictures in the early morning light. These are just a few of my faves from the session.

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you all had a good holiday season and got some quality R&R with your loved ones. Cristel, the kids, and I spent Christmas and New Year with our family down in Panama. We had a great time catching up with everyone and enjoyed our time in the sun by taking a trip to the amazing San Blas islands and lounging by the hotel pool drinking large quantities of Panamanian rum. Fun times!So, it was a bit of a proverbial ice cube down the back when I flew back into RDU for Laura & Cadman's Duke Chapel wedding, only to learn we were expecting up to 8" of snow that day. Yowzers!Luckily, everything on the big d ...
