Duke Chapel Weddings

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:

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 ...

A couple of Sundays ago, I got up early headed over to Durham for a Duke Chapel engagement photography session with Brianna and Chris, whose wedding I will be documenting at Duke Chapel next summer. Given they live in the DC area, we hadn't had the chance to meet in person yet, so we got together for a cup of hot chocolate at the amazing Cocoa Cinnamon and headed on over to Duke to get some pictures in the early morning light. These are just a few of my faves from the session.
