duke chapel wedding photography – sara’s bridal session

Bridal Session

Sara & Ross tied the knot in a truly beautiful wedding at Duke Chapel this past Saturday and I’m looking forward to sharing some images from their gorgeous day really soon. In the meantime, I’m pleased to be able to share some photos from Sara’s recent bridal photography session. This was a fun but challenging shoot as it started raining pretty heavily just a few minutes into the session and then rained off and on for the duration. This meant that we were restricted to shooting under cover a lot of the time, which forced me to think differently and get creative to obtain the widest variety of images possible whilst keeping Sara and her beautiful Pronovias dress and Jimmy Choo shoes dry and clean. So we worked a variety of scenarios in and around the arcades and in the covered areas around the chapel. Kudos to Sara for being truly up for getting down (literally) and being willing to sit on steps, window sills, etc. to get the shot. I think we made a pretty good team!

As you can see, Sara made a truly radiant bride. She looked amazing and was super fun to work with. She’s currently sunning herself down in Cabo with her hubby, but I want to thank her for going above and beyond to make the shoot a success.

Here are just some of my favourite photos from the session. Have a great week everyone!

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing Alex and Marcus's wedding at The Umstead Hotel & Spa not far from my home here in Cary, NC. It was a brilliant day and I'll be sharing photos from that day as soon as they're out of the oven. In the meantime, I wanted to take the opportunity to post a few of my photos from Alex's bridal session which we shot this past November. Alex and I basically had the run of the grounds of the Umstead and her friend's property just around the corner, so we made the most of the opportunity to take some traditional shots and also experiment a bit with some more creative looks. Alex looked so ...

The bridal session is a very Southern tradition indeed, but one I do enjoy, even as an Englishman! Whether it be a separate shoot as part of a dress-rehearsal for the bride, or some time taken on the adding day itself, it's really nice to take some time with the bride to get some pictures of her in her wedding dress. The shot above was actually taken at a recent wedding in Cincinnati between the wedding ceremony and reception. We had about 5 minutes during the cocktail hour to take some photos of the bride, which isn't much, but that is sometimes all we get to work with. As you can see though, the autumn colours combined really well with t ...

Claire and Zach got spliced back in early June and I'm looking forward to sharing some photos of their big day very soon. What a top day that was!! Claire lives out of town so one evening a couple of days before the wedding, we got together at Duke Chapel to take some portraits of her in her dress. As you can see, the weather, combined with the beautiful gothic architecture of the chapel made it a perfect evening for some moody and dramatic images. Here is a quick selection of a few of my faves. Thanks to Claire for being so game and to Katie for being my little helper! A full blog post of the wedding will be coming soon!!! Have ...
