It was a really gorgeous day for Brianna and Chris’s Duke Chapel wedding in mid-July. We’ve had a pretty stormy summer so far this year, so it was great to see the sun. A lot of photographers tend to run for the shade on sunny days, but I love working with harsh sunlight! It certainly made for some dramatic images of the bride in Duke Chapel’s arcades.

After the ceremony, we headed outside into the grounds around Duke Chapel to take some pictures as the sun was setting. There’s quite a lot of construction going on on that area of campus right now, but we worked around it to get some images of Brianna’s dad’s vintage Austin Healey roadster before heading off to the reception at The Cotton Room. The Perfect Beat DJ did a great job of getting everyone dancing and fun was had by all involved.

Big thanks to Brianna and Chris for giving me the honour of documenting their engagement and their wedding day. Best wishes to the both of them as they begin their married life together.

Here are just a few of my personal faves from the day…

duke chapel & bay 7 wedding – margo & patrick
July closed itself out in style with the fabulous Duke Chapel and Bay 7 wedding of Margo and Patrick, who all you avid readers of this blog might remember from their engagement shoot this past spring.
