OK, I have to apologise in advance for the length of this blog post in terms of sheer number of wedding photographs. I normally aim to keep the image count around 50 or so, but this wedding had so many great moments that I really had a tough time choosing my favourite photos to blog. Also, Deniz is from Turkey, so I want to make sure all her family and mates back home get to see as many of her pics as possible – that’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it.

So many great moments come from the fact that Deniz and Robbie are such loving people with an amazingly affectionate group of friends and family around them. My sincere congrats go out to them and I wish them all the best as they start their new life out together. Good luck in the move from NYC to Durham guys!

Thanks as always for stopping by. I really appreciate each and every comment, word of encouragement and feedback from everyone.

Have a great one!

They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, which is great news for Katherine & Andy given that we dodged thunder storms pretty much all day for their outdoor Duke Gardens wedding ceremony a few weeks ago. Everything was looking fine in the morning, but the grey skies rolled in right as we got to the gardens and pretty much all our plans for the first look and portraits before the ceremony had to be pushed back by about an hour. Luckily, the skies eventually cleared and we were able to get outside and make some beautiful images. I love bright, sunny days, but, as en Englishman, I have a very soft spot for rainy days too!  The grey ...

A gorgeous day in a beautiful location with great people. That pretty much sums up the vibe of Jordan and Zeke's wedding at Duke Gardens earlier this month. Readers of the blog will recognise Jordan from her bridal photographs that I shot a few days before the wedding. She made such an elegant bride, and I think you'll agree that her groom, Zeke, cut a pretty dapper figure too. Congrats to them both and best wishes for the future! Big thanks to all the great people that collaborated to make the day such a success: Ceremony & Reception: Sarah P Duke Gardens, Durham, NC | Event Coordination: Grace Beason, Grace Leisure Events, Durham, ...

Summer is upon us and I've just got back from my home country of England where I spent a fortnight travelling around the country catching up with friends and family. So now it's time to catch up on work and for me to share a recent wedding that I shot at Duke Gardens for the fabulous Lauren & Ricky. As you can see, we were blessed with wonderful weather for their outdoor ceremony and reception and the day went by in a total blur. Luckily, the photos do a great job of telling the story of the day, which it's what it's all about after all. A huge shout-out to the great people who came together to make it such a fabulous day: Ceremony ...
