Durham Wedding Photographer

Wedding Ceremony: The King’s Daughters Inn, Durham, NC
Formals: Duke University, Durham, NC
Reception: West End Wine Bar, Durham, NC

Candis was one of the first brides to contact me after we moved down from Indianapolis last autumn, so I had been looking forward to her and Terrell’s wedding for quite a while. The location for the ceremony and dinner was The King’s Daughters Inn, which is a beautiful 1920’s home located right next door to Duke’s East Campus. When I went there to scout out the location I was immediately struck by how beautiful the light was in the house and, with the weather on the day behaving itself, we were really lucky to get some lovely backlighting during the wedding ceremony itself, which gave a lovely depth to the images. From there, we made a quick trip over to Duke, to take some pictures of the wedding party and the couple themselves.

After heading back to the Inn for dinner, we made our way over to the West End Wine Bar, for the reception. We got there just as the sun was going down, so we took a quick 5 minutes to take some more pictures of the happy couple using the light of the setting sun against the lovely red brick of the old warehouses in downtown Durham. The reception venue itself was really cool and we got some great pictures of people from all generations getting into the swing of things as the DJ span the tunes.

Terrell and Candis were a lovely couple to work with; relaxed and enjoying the moment and each other from start to finish. I wish them all the best for a long and happy future together.

Here are the images from their day:

Happy New Year, everyone! What better way to head into the home straight of my 2018 season and kick off the blog for 2019 than with a classic in the form of Kathleen & Michael's Carolina Inn & Duke Chapel wedding? This truly was a gorgeous day in all senses of the word:  beautiful venues, fabulous weather, and lovely people - it truly had it all. Carolina Inn & Duke Chapel weddings are always a highlight of my calendar, so it was great to get the chance to photograph a Christmas wedding there with all the festive decorations on show.

Wedding Ceremony: Immaculate Conception Church, Durham, NC Wedding Reception: Durham Convention Center, Durham, NC This was a special one for me as I met the happy couple last year when Sarah was a bridesmaid for her friend Candis at their wedding at the King's Daughters Inn. We got on really well and, when I was introduced to her fiancé Jonathan later in the evening, they asked me then and there about shooting their wedding. I think Jonathan's line was "You don't seem to do all the cheesy stuff!". Jonathan, I can verify that this is a fromage-free zone. I really love weddings that have an international flavour and this was the thi ...

Joyce & Ross were married this past weekend, so I'm now able to show some images from our pre-wedding shoot at Duke Gardens a fortnight or so ago. As you'll see, we had a pretty extreme shoot in terms of weather. I think we experienced pretty much all four seasons in the space of a couple of hours, but Joyce and Ross were on great form and didn't let the rain get in the way of their smiles. A good time was had by all, especially me! Here are a few of my faves from the shoot...
