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…

21c, duke chapel & cookery wedding photography – brandy & gabe
We started out the 2018 wedding season with a real classic in all senses of the word. A Duke Chapel wedding is always a recipe for success, but add to that a fabulous bride and groom, other such gorgeous venues as 21c and The Cookery and a crack team of wedding professionals, and you really have something very special indeed on your hands. I first met Brandy and Gabe about a year and a half ago at Toni and Kevin's wedding in Winston-Salem, where Brandy was one of Toni's bridesmaids. Brandy struck me then as a really fun person and so I was so really pleased when, a few weeks later, she phoned me to tell me she'd just got engaged and ask me ...

Mary Pat & Jonathan's wedding was such great fun to shoot. Everything from shooting the girls getting ready at The Durham Hotel right through to the reception at The Rickhouse was so full of joy and laughter, I had a smile on my face all day! After the first-look and ceremony at the always-lovely Duke Chapel, Mary Pat & Jonathan joined me on a quick shoot around downtown Durham. From there, we headed over to the reception where DJ Steve Stowe got the party started in style. As you'll see, everyone listed above really came together to make it a really beautiful day; my sincerest thanks to them all! A special thank you, of course, to ...
