duke university engagement photography session – jordan & matt

Engagements

Early on Christmas Eve, I met up with Jordan and Matt for coffee and a chat before heading out into the cold, sunny winter air for some Duke University engagement photography shenanigans around the Duke campus.

Despite the frosty temperatures, it was a lovely day for shooting. The grounds were deserted and the light was gorgeous, so we took our time to explore and find some places to have fun, experiment and get some cool shots.

Jordan and Matt were a fab couple to hang out with and I am really looking forward to their Duke Chapel wedding later in the summer!

Here are my picks of the pics.

A couple of days back, I met up with Akiko and Jordan bright and early at Jack Sprat's coffee shop in downtown Chapel Hill. We met up early to avoid the heat and get the best light, and after a double espresso and a chat, I was ready to rock n' roll. Akiko and Jordan were a really fun couple to work with and their chemistry really showed when they got together in front of the camera. Both UNC alumni, the locations around the grounds of the campus had special meaning to them, but it is a really fabulous place to shoot given the beautiful architecture and lush greenery everywhere. As always with my engagement shoots, we took things slow ...

Hi everyone, At the end of March, I got together with Cassie and John for a walk around downtown Raleigh for their engagement photography session. We met up at The Oxford, had a couple of drinks and headed out into the city to find the light as the sun was setting. As always, I tried to do things a little differently from my previous shoots in the area so we mixed things up a bit by shooting solely with prime lenses. Invariably, the fixed focal length forces you to see things differently and this case was no exception. It makes you think a bit more about your composition, which means more work, but that's definitely a good thing. A goo ...

duke gardens engagement session – nikki & john
It's been a while since I shared an engagement session and I've shot quite a few over the last few weeks. So let's put that right! Here's a Duke Gardens engagement session I photographed a few weeks ago. I've known Nikki for a few years through some corporate work I did a few years back with what is now The Pink Ceiling. So I was really pleased when, a few months back, I heard that she'd got engaged to John and wanted me to photograph her wedding for her. As I always like to do, we met up at a bar for a few drinks to chat and loosen up a bit before heading over to the gardens. I like to make it a natural progression from when we meet to wh ...
