duke gardens engagement photography – yasmin & mike


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:

Last Saturday, I met up with Thelsa and Phil at Top of the Hill in downtown Chapel Hill for their engagement session. We had a couple of drinks and a chat, before heading off to the UNC campus for pictures around the gorgeous campus grounds there. We went for a relaxed stroll and took some shots by the Old Well and around Coker Aboretum. Both Thelsa and Phil have ties to the school, so it was the ideal location for their shoot. It was a really lovely day so we had a brilliant time making the most of the beautiful light in the late afternoon. Thelsa and Phil are a fantastic couple with a great sense of humour and I'm really looking forward ...

A couple of weeks back, I headed down to Christina & Jerry's farm in Broadway, NC for their engagement session. On the way home, I went a different route and drove by fields and fields of beautiful flowers, which were just begging for pictures - so the next day we went back for some more photos! Here are my faves from the 2 shoots. For the photographers out there, these are a mixture of Kodak Portra 800 film and my Kodak Portra 800 presets for Lightroom. Have a great week, y'all!

I'm looking forward to shooting Lindsey and Michael's wedding this coming weekend. I thought it might be a good time to share a few of my faves from their recent Raleigh engagement photography session. For those that are interested, the session took place at the North Carolina Museum of Art and Yates Mill County Park in Raleigh.
