Duke Gardens Weddings Durham Wedding Photographer

Regular visitors to my website will know I love working on Duke Gardens weddings and it was such a treat to photograph Anh & David’s wedding there a few weeks back. But rather than me tell you about it, here’s Anh herself with a quick recap of how she found me and how the planning and the day itself  went down:

“I am the kind of bride who puts a lot of time and effort into researching each and every vendor till I find a perfect match. I rank my wedding vendors in an excel spreadsheet and Joe was my number one choice in the photographer category. My husband and I planned our wedding on a moderate budget but we knew we had to prioritize photography and videography because years from now, photos and videos will be the only physical things we have left with to remember our wedding day by. One of my husband’s groomsmen who is a wedding photographer recommended Joe and said he was the best wedding photographer in the area. When we saw Joe’s photos on his website and instagram, we knew we had to book him fast!

Joe was so accommodating when my husband and I wanted our first look to be at a different location (Duke Chapel). He reached out to the location to ask for permission to take pictures there. On our wedding day, Joe drove me while his assistant, Erin drove my husband to our first look location. It was a pretty warm summer day and I am sure they were exhausted taking pictures for hours in the sun but both of them stayed enthusiastic and excited throughout the night. Joe and Erin were very dedicated, professional and easy to get along with. We were able to see our first photo on Joe’s instagram and thought it looks stunning. We highly recommend Joe and Erin and we truly appreciate all of their help on our big day.”

You’ll see Anh brought in a few unique touches from here home country of Vietnam; from her wedding dress to the traditional attire she and David wore for a quick sunset shoot around the gardens, there really were plenty of cool little details to photograph.

I hope you enjoy just a few of my faves from their day.

A gorgeous day in a beautiful location with great people. That pretty much sums up the vibe of Jordan and Zeke's wedding at Duke Gardens earlier this month. Readers of the blog will recognise Jordan from her bridal photographs that I shot a few days before the wedding. She made such an elegant bride, and I think you'll agree that her groom, Zeke, cut a pretty dapper figure too. Congrats to them both and best wishes for the future! Big thanks to all the great people that collaborated to make the day such a success: Ceremony & Reception: Sarah P Duke Gardens, Durham, NC | Event Coordination: Grace Beason, Grace Leisure Events, Durham, ...

I was honoured to be asked recently by the King's Daughters Inn to provide the photograph for their artwork in this year's Southern Bride and Groom magazine. For those of you that don't know it, the KDI is a beautiful boutique Bed & Breakfast located by the Duke University campus in Durham, NC. It was originally built in the 1920's, but fully refurbished in 2009. It's a place I really enjoy shooting in given its character and abundance of natural light and I can wholeheartedly recommend it for people looking for a more intimate venue for their wedding and other events. I'm looking forward to working with Samantha and the team there ...
