I met Danielle and Thomas back in March and was immediately struck with the fact they were such an easy-going, fun couple. So, as you can imagine, I was very pleased when they asked me to document their wedding day at the Forest Theatre and The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill – two of the most picturesque venues in the area.

From the preparation pictures at the Inn, to the ceremony, to the formals at the Old Well on the UNC campus and back to the Inn for the reception, you can see we had fun the whole day. It really was a great Chapel Hill wedding for everyone involved.

Here are a few of my favourite images from the day:

This week's image of the bride getting her make-up done offers a nice contrast to my last post and comes from a wedding I photographed last weekend at The Carolina Inn just down the road in Chapel Hill. If you've read my blog before, you may well be aware that I really don't like to direct the wedding day at all, but just let it happen and focus on documenting it honestly. With this image, however, I did provide a little bit of direction in order to get the most from the environment we were in. What was the direction? I closed the other blinds in the room and moved the chair 90 degrees and to the side so the bride was lit with some beautif ...

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. Erin and I started the day with Kathleen & Michael at the Carolina Inn, where they were staying and where they would return for the reception later in the day. The Carolina Inn really was looking great with its Christmas décor and it has some great little places hidden away to provi ...
