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!

Cheers,

Joe

Wedding season is in full swing and it's been super busy around these parts, but I'm coming up for air with a quick blog post from Hannah and Andrew's beautiful spring wedding which took place at Duke Chapel and The Cotton Room just up the road in Durham, NC. My first stop for the day was the King's Daughter's Inn where Hannah, her family and her bridesmaids were getting ready. The Trinity Suite is such a great room to get ready in as it has a lovely sunroom with an abundance of natural light. From there we headed over to Duke Gardens for Hannah and Andrew's first look. It was threatening to rain and we had a back-up plan for the first loo ...

If you've seen my last post, you'll know how much I enjoy shooting at Duke Chapel and the Carolina Inn. Well, lightning struck twice in August and I got to shoot at the same two venues for Angel & Jeff's beautiful wedding. Such a great couple and so easy going; they basically stood back and let me do my thing. Between the ceremony and reception, we got to spend some time on the grounds at Duke before heading across to Duke Gardens for a quick portrait session. Angel looked amazing in her gorgeous dress and chapel-length veil, which caught the light beautifully as the sun began to set. Of course, Jeff looked pretty dapper too!! From there, ...

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 ...
