Duke Chapel & Carolina Inn Wedding-Angel & Jeff-34

If you’ve seen my last post, you’ll know how much I enjoy shooting at Duke Chapel and the Carolina Inn. Well, lightning struck twice in August and I got to shoot at the same two venues for Angel & Jeff’s beautiful wedding. Such a great couple and so easy going; they basically stood back and let me do my thing. Between the ceremony and reception, we got to spend some time on the grounds at Duke before heading across to Duke Gardens for a quick portrait session. Angel looked amazing in her gorgeous dress and chapel-length veil, which caught the light beautifully as the sun began to set. Of course, Jeff looked pretty dapper too!! From there, to the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill where dinner was served and DJ Brian Maguire of McSound Productions got the party started and the couple left under a confetti exit.

All in all, it was a fab day and we were totally spoilt by the weather. Big thanks to Angel and Jeff for having me along and being so great to work with. I wish you guys all the happiness in the world in your new adventure together as man and wife!

OK, enough banter – let’s bring on the picks of the pics!!

This week's image of the bride getting her make-up done offers a nice contrast to my last post and comes from a wedding I photographed last weekend at The Carolina Inn just down the road in Chapel Hill. If you've read my blog before, you may well be aware that I really don't like to direct the wedding day at all, but just let it happen and focus on documenting it honestly. With this image, however, I did provide a little bit of direction in order to get the most from the environment we were in. What was the direction? I closed the other blinds in the room and moved the chair 90 degrees and to the side so the bride was lit with some beautif ...

Duke Gardens, Durham, NC Cake: Lynn's Traditions, Raleigh, NC DJ and Videographer: Damien Maas, Durham NC Assistant Photographer: Rebecca Ferguson, Durham, NC The first time I ever visited Durham back in 2007, I was lucky enough to visit Duke Chapel and was totally spellbound by its beautiful gothic architecture. And so it was, when we moved to the area in late 2010, that I made it my goal to shoot a wedding there as soon as possible. Almost exactly one year to the day later, I was contacted by Jacquie and was extremely pleased when we met up and she told ...

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. Well, this was their big day, I was really looking forward to it, and it didn't disappoint. Margo and Kathy at Sally Oakley Weddings & Events had done a great job liaising with me to plan the timeline and so we had plenty of time for the getting ready shots at the WaDuke, followed by a first look and group photos at Duke Gardens before heading to the chapel for more portraits and the ceremony itself. The reception at Bay 7 was a lot of fun w ...
