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…

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 ...

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 ...
