downtown durham engagement photography – melanie & anthony

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!!

unc chapel hill engagement session ~ thelsa and phil

It was a really lovely day so we had a brilliant time making the most of the beautiful light in the late afternoon. Thelsa and Phil are a fantastic couple with a great sense of humour and I'm really looking forward ...

raleigh engagement photography – kelly & cameron
I've been a bit sporadic with my updates recently; it's been a crazy autumn and things are only just starting to slow down for me. Anyway, I plan to catch up over the next few weeks, so we're all good! To get things back on track, what better way than this recent Raleigh engagement photography session? I had no idea there were so many cotton fields around these parts! I guess I need to get out more. If this shoot is anything to go by, I definitely will be going back! Big thanks to Kelly and Cameron for being such fab people for suggesting the location and allowing me to change the date to avoid the rain and catch the best light. Looking ...

I met up with Kathryn and Justin a few weeks back to shoot their engagement pictures around Duke Gardens. It was one of the first warm days of spring so the gardens were were pretty packed. We took some time to venture off the beaten track to find some space to ourselves. Here are a few of my fave pics from the shoot.
