durham wedding photographer – jill & john

Durham Wedding Photographer

2017 finished in style with Jill & John’s fab wedding in Durham NC. Regular readers of the blog will probably remember Jill from her beautiful Rose Hill Plantation bridal session, which was one of my favorite portrait sessions of the year. She made such a stunning bride and was such good fun to be with, I was really looking forward to the wedding day!

As a regular Durham wedding photographer, it was great to close out the year at such iconic Durham venues as Immaculate Conception Church, Duke Gardens and the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University. Before that, though, and while Erin was photographing John and the guys, I met up with Jill and her bridesmaids at her downtown Durham apartment for the getting ready, which is a part of the day I always enjoy photographing. From there, we headed across the road to the old Durham Brazing & Welding Works which offered a fabulous backdrop for some photos of Jill and her bridesmaids. From there, we were off to the ceremony and, once Jill & John had tied the knot, we raced across to Duke Gardens to catch the last rays of sunset for portraits of the bride and groom before heading to the Nasher for the reception.

All in all, it was a gorgeous day documenting the marriage of two fabulous people and a perfect way to close out the year.

OK, I know I’m going on a bit so, as always, here are my picks of the pics from Jill & John’s day. Congrats, guys! All the best for a long and happy future together!

raleigh wedding photographer – image of the week: no. 6
When I'm out shooting, a lot of my time is spent looking around at my environment and trying to work out how to take what I am looking at and make the very best picture of it I can. That may sound pretty obvious, but as someone who has been hired to document a very important day, the temptation a lot of the time is to just take pictures and more pictures to make sure you are covering every single moment possible. You have to make a conscious effort to slow down and take in your surroundings whilst you're working away. This week's image is a case in point about how it can really be rewarding to take a moment to look around and take a few ca ...

21c museum hotel durham wedding – kortne & terry
I closed out 2018 right back at the very spot I began the year last January: the fab 21c Museum Hotel in downtown Durham, NC. Back then it was for Brandy & Gabe's big day, this time it was for Kortne & Terry's 21c Museum Hotel wedding, which just happened to fall on New Year's Eve. So I saw in the New Year with this fabulous couple and the party was still raging when I left around 1am. Kortne & Terry had mentioned they wanted a Gatsby theme for their wedding and the vintage vibe of the night, along with the classic look of Kortne's dress and Terry's white tuxedo jacket definitely came through in the images. Big congrats and tha ...

Joyce & Ross were married this past weekend, so I'm now able to show some images from our pre-wedding shoot at Duke Gardens a fortnight or so ago. As you'll see, we had a pretty extreme shoot in terms of weather. I think we experienced pretty much all four seasons in the space of a couple of hours, but Joyce and Ross were on great form and didn't let the rain get in the way of their smiles. A good time was had by all, especially me! Here are a few of my faves from the shoot...
