We started out the 2018 wedding season with a real classic in all senses of the word. A Duke Chapel wedding is always a recipe for success, but add to that a fabulous bride and groom, other such gorgeous venues as 21c and The Cookery and a crack team of wedding professionals, and you really have something very special indeed on your hands.

I first met Brandy and Gabe about a year and a half ago at Toni and Kevin’s wedding in Winston-Salem, where Brandy was one of Toni’s bridesmaids. Brandy struck me then as a really fun person and so I was so really pleased when, a few weeks later, she phoned me to tell me she’d just got engaged and ask me if I might be available to photograph her wedding. She was in the very early stages of planning and so it was so flattering to know I was the first person she picked up the phone to call. I must be doing something right, I guess!

Anyway, fast forward to January 2018 and I found myself meeting up with my buddy and fellow Englishman, Richard Israel, to go and photograph what would turn out to be a pretty spectacular event. They say pictures speak louder than words, so I’ll shut up and let the images do the talking.  Before I do, though, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that came together to make it happen. Without the fab team below, I would have had nothing to photograph:

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 ...

Sidney and Andrew's wedding marked my first return to Duke Chapel since it reopened its doors earlier in the summer. Well, I'd stopped in on the odd occasion to for shoots and to check out progress while it was being renovated. I'd also been back with Sidney, her mum and sister a few weeks earlier when I shot Sidney's sunset bridal  session (the images at the top and bottom of this post are from that session). But this was my first time shooting a full wedding since April 2015. Needless to say, I was really pleased to be back in what has to be one of my favorite venues to photograph in.  To have such an occasion backed up with a reception at ...
