Duke Chapel Wedding Camp Out

This past summer, I was asked by Southern Bride & Groom to capture a decades old tradition of camping out at Duke Chapel to secure the cathedral as a wedding venue. The Duke Chapel Camp Out, as it is known, allows hopeful couples to wait…

Priscilla & Chris | A Cotton Room Wedding

A lot of photographers will get up on soapboxes about the number of cameras present at a given wedding... after all, we've been hired to do the job, so why have guests be distracted by their phones/iPads/dSLRs, right? Well yes, typically I feel…

Kristi & Rob | Hilton Head, SC Destination Wedding

Kristen & Ray | Duke Chapel Wedding in Durham, NC
