Carolina Inn Weddings Duke Chapel Weddings Duke Gardens Weddings

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!!

carolina inn weddings ~ image of the week: no 25
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 ...

Regular visitors to my website will know I love working on Duke Gardens weddings and it was such a treat to photograph Anh & David's wedding there a few weeks back. But rather than me tell you about it, here's Anh herself with a quick recap of how she found me and how the planning and the day itself  went down: "I am the kind of bride who puts a lot of time and effort into researching each and every vendor till I find a perfect match. I rank my wedding vendors in an excel spreadsheet and Joe was my number one choice in the photographer category. My husband and I planned our wedding on a moderate budget but we knew we had to prioritize ...

snowy duke chapel wedding photography – laura & cadman
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 ...
