duke chapel engagement session – naomi & matt

Engagements

A couple of weekends back, I met up with Naomi and Matt for an early morning cup of coffee and an engagement session in the grounds around Duke Chapel. The sun shone, the birds sang and good times were had by all involved. Seriously, we had a laugh and made the most of the gorgeous light to get some great shots. It was great fun!

Unfortunately, I was booked for Naomi and Matt’s wedding, so I won’t be with them for their big day in September. I was pleased we got the time to hang out and make pictures together though. Love and best wishes to them both as they start their new journey together.

Here are a few fave photographs from our Duke Chapel engagement session…

A couple of weekends ago, I flew up to NYC for an engagement shoot with Lara & Juice. We met up for drinks in their Greenwich Village apartment and went for a walk in the evening sunlight to take pictures around their home. From there, we headed up to the roof of their building to take some shots of the Manhattan skyline at dusk. As always, it's more about capturing the personalities and stories of my clients than posing and making up some kind of fantasy shoot so we kept things pretty relaxed and fun. Here are just a few of my faves from the session.

I've been a bit sporadic with my updates recently; it's been a crazy autumn and things are only just starting to slow down for me. Anyway, I plan to catch up over the next few weeks, so we're all good! To get things back on track, what better way than this recent Raleigh engagement photography session? I had no idea there were so many cotton fields around these parts! I guess I need to get out more. If this shoot is anything to go by, I definitely will be going back! Big thanks to Kelly and Cameron for being such fab people for suggesting the location and allowing me to change the date to avoid the rain and catch the best light. Looking ...

Last week, I headed out to Duke Gardens with Yasmin and Mike for a really fun engagement shoot. Regular readers of the blog will know I shoot there a lot, so to keep things fresh on this occasion I challenged myself to shoot with just two pieces of gear: a Canon digital camera with an 85mm f/1.2 lens and a Pentax 67 camera with a 105mm f/2.4 lens. It was a cold day, so we pretty much had the gardens to ourselves and the light was gorgeous. Yasmin and Mike were troopers and we came away with some pretty nice shots. Here are just a few of my faves: ...
