duke gardens engagement photography – margo & patrick

Engagements

A couple of weekends back, I got to spend a few hours in the company of these two lovely people as we took a stroll around the Sarah P. Duke Gardens and West Campus at Duke. It was a pretty warm day and the gardens were slammed with multiple weddings and prom-goers having their photos taken. We did our best to slip the crowds and find our own little areas for some privacy and room to shoot and experiment in. Margo & Patrick were great fun and I’m really looking forward to their Duke Chapel wedding in a couple of months.

We took a lot of great pics and it was hard to narrow if down, but here are just a few of my faves from the shoot…

raleigh engagement photography ~ cassie and john
Hi everyone, At the end of March, I got together with Cassie and John for a walk around downtown Raleigh for their engagement photography session.

unc chapel hill engagement photography – eleanna & michael
Well, spring seemed to take an age to show up properly, but a couple of weekends back, we were treated to a really beautiful Saturday evening. As luck would have it, I had a UNC engagement photography session set up for that evening, so I loaded up and headed out to Chapel Hill to meet up with Eleanna and Michael. After a couple of beers at Top of the Hill to relax and get to know each other a little more, we went for a walk around the UNC campus and made some images. We shot a mixture of film (Fuji 400 processed by Richard Photo Lab) as well as digital, and the beautiful spring colours really popped in the evening light. All digital images w ...

wedding photographers in raleigh nc ~ engagement session for jessica and bo
With the season over for us Raleigh wedding photographers, I'm already looking forward to what 2013 has to offer! First up will be Jessica and Bo, whose Carolina Inn wedding I will be shooting in a few weeks. Their Chapel Hill engagement session took place one grey Sunday morning in November, where we met at the Carolina Inn, had a leisurely brunch at the Carolina Coffee Shop where we had a chat and got to know each other a little better, and then headed out to take pictures around the area. It was a fun-packed and eventful session where we laughed, cried and I got ambushed by a rather large and playful Irish red setter. What can I say? We ...
