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!

Regular visitors to my website will know I love working on Duke Gardens weddings and it was such a treat to photograph Anh & David's wedding there a few weeks back. But rather than me tell you about it, here's Anh herself with a quick recap of how she found me and how the planning and the day itself  went down: "I am the kind of bride who puts a lot of time and effort into researching each and every vendor till I find a perfect match. I rank my wedding vendors in an excel spreadsheet and Joe was my number one choice in the photographer category. My husband and I planned our wedding on a moderate budget but we knew we had to prioritize ...

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 ...

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 ...
