duke gardens engagement photography – yasmin & mike

Engagements

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:

downtown raleigh engagement session ~ lisa and mark
A week or so ago, I spent a couple of hours on a Saturday evening hanging out with Lisa and Mark in downtown Raleigh for their engagement session. We had a couple of drinks in The Oxford (I need to keep it real and English) to catch up and loosen up a little before heading out for a walk around Fayetteville Street. It really is a great area with a lot of unique nooks and crannies to take pictures in, as well as the lovely State Capitol building, which provided the backdrop to some of our images. After a pretty crappy day of rain and thunder, we were treated to a lovely spring evening of sunshine. That, combined with Lisa and Mark's chemis ...

nyc engagement session – lara & juice
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.
