2014 was an absolutely fantastic year in which I got to document the weddings of some fabulous couples whom I all now call good friends. And so it was extremely fitting to round out the season on a real high with the gorgeous wedding of Rachel and Kevin at Duke Chapel and Prestonwood Country Club. Falling as it did on the Saturday before Christmas, the whole event was full of festive cheer that was as contagious as it was colourful. Duke Chapel itself was beautifully decorated with red poinsettias which complemented the red and black palette chosen by Rachel for the bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen’s waistcoats.

The highlight of the reception for me was the bride and groom’s first dance, which was brilliantly choreographed by Rachel. Prestonwood Country Club was the venue and it, too, was decked out with seasonal decorations that made for a great backdrop for the photos.

Big thanks to all the vendors listed above for making it such a lovely event to photograph. And, of course, my heartfelt thanks and best wishes for a long and happy future together to Rachel and Kevin.

Have a great 2015 everyone!

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you all had a good holiday season and got some quality R&R with your loved ones. Cristel, the kids, and I spent Christmas and New Year with our family down in Panama. We had a great time catching up with everyone and enjoyed our time in the sun by taking a trip to the amazing San Blas islands and lounging by the hotel pool drinking large quantities of Panamanian rum. Fun times! So, it was a bit of a proverbial ice cube down the back when I flew back into RDU for Laura & Cadman's Duke Chapel wedding, only to learn we were expecting up to 8" of snow that day. Yowzers! Luckily, everything on the big d ...

Sidney and Andrew's wedding marked my first return to Duke Chapel since it reopened its doors earlier in the summer. Well, I'd stopped in on the odd occasion to for shoots and to check out progress while it was being renovated. I'd also been back with Sidney, her mum and sister a few weeks earlier when I shot Sidney's sunset bridal  session (the images at the top and bottom of this post are from that session). But this was my first time shooting a full wedding since April 2015. Needless to say, I was really pleased to be back in what has to be one of my favorite venues to photograph in.  To have such an occasion backed up with a reception at ...

When you have such an amazing couple as Sara and Ross whose love and happiness at getting married is so evident, you can't possibly have a bad day. Add in Duke Chapel and Hope Valley Country Club as venues, an amazing team of vendors, bright sunshine and a monsoon-like storm in the space of a couple of hours, and you know it's going to be a very special day indeed. If you stop by my blog regularly, you might be familiar with Sara from her Duke Chapel bridal photography session, which I posted a few weeks back.
