duke chapel weddings ~ bridal session for claire

Bridal Session

Claire and Zach got spliced back in early June and I’m looking forward to sharing some photos of their big day very soon. What a top day that was!!

Claire lives out of town so one evening a couple of days before the wedding, we got together at Duke Chapel to take some portraits of her in her dress. As you can see, the weather, combined with the beautiful gothic architecture of the chapel made it a perfect evening for some moody and dramatic images.

Here is a quick selection of a few of my faves. Thanks to Claire for being so game and to Katie for being my little helper!

A full blog post of the wedding will be coming soon!!!

Have a great 4th of July everyone!

Cheers,

Joe

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of photographing Jill and John's wedding just up the road here in Durham, so I'm pleased to now be able to share some of my favourite photos from Jill's Rose Hill Plantation bridal photography session from a few weeks ago. Readers of the blog will know I shot another bridal session out at Rose Hill back in the summer, so it was great to be back on a beautiful, golden autumnal evening. I never like to repeat myself if possible, so we shot in totally new locations throughout the house and grounds. Jill looked amazing and we came away with some gorgeous, unique images. Seeing two of my photos printed large on fine ...

The bridal session is a very Southern tradition indeed, but one I do enjoy, even as an Englishman! Whether it be a separate shoot as part of a dress-rehearsal for the bride, or some time taken on the adding day itself, it's really nice to take some time with the bride to get some pictures of her in her wedding dress. The shot above was actually taken at a recent wedding in Cincinnati between the wedding ceremony and reception. We had about 5 minutes during the cocktail hour to take some photos of the bride, which isn't much, but that is sometimes all we get to work with. As you can see though, the autumn colours combined really well with t ...
