Engagements

Rain Stops Play – Well, actually it was the catalyst for a really fun (and different) engagement shoot with Melanie and Anthony. We met up at West End Wine Bar in Durham and were on our way out when the heavens opened and a summer rainstorm was suddenly unleashed upon us. It was a total downpour, so we headed back inside. The original plan was to wait it out, but as the rain never looked like letting up, we switched gears and started using the environment we were in for some portraits. Melanie and Anthony had originally wanted a vintage Hollywood vibe for their engagement session anyway, so we walked to some of the cool spots in downtown Durham – basically a mini pub crawl ;) – and used the available light to make some interesting images and a storyline. As you can see, they dressed the part and absolutely KILLED it.

Here are just some of my faves from the session. Some of the best fun I’ve had in ages. Thanks guys!!

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. We met up at The Oxford, had a couple of drinks and headed out into the city to find the light as the sun was setting. As always, I tried to do things a little differently from my previous shoots in the area so we mixed things up a bit by shooting solely with prime lenses. Invariably, the fixed focal length forces you to see things differently and this case was no exception. It makes you think a bit more about your composition, which means more work, but that's definitely a good thing. A goo ...

A couple of days back, I met up with Akiko and Jordan bright and early at Jack Sprat's coffee shop in downtown Chapel Hill. We met up early to avoid the heat and get the best light, and after a double espresso and a chat, I was ready to rock n' roll. Akiko and Jordan were a really fun couple to work with and their chemistry really showed when they got together in front of the camera. Both UNC alumni, the locations around the grounds of the campus had special meaning to them, but it is a really fabulous place to shoot given the beautiful architecture and lush greenery everywhere. As always with my engagement shoots, we took things slow ...

raleigh wedding photographer – samantha and jimmy’s greenville engagement session
I recently took a trip down to Greenville, SC to shoot an engagement session for Samantha and Jimmy, whose wedding I will be documenting in October. I had spoken with them once or twice back in November last year, so it was really nice to hang out, have a couple of drinks and take some pictures together. They really are a fun couple with a lot of great chemistry, which really comes through in the pictures. It's a bit of a cliché to say, but I definitely came away from the shoot having made two new friends, so I'm really looking forward to seeing them again on their big day. The shoot itself threw up a couple of challenges as Greenville se ...
