Alex and Justin have such a unique vibe and I got to capture it in downtown Durham for their engagement photo session.   

We did most of this shoot in the alleyway near Scratch Bakery and took an intermission at Alley 26 for libations so they could take a breather and change clothes. 

The two other locations were the Durham Post Office and the basement vault at 21C Museum Hotel.

Outdoor adventure photographers Josh and Shelly Hartman journeyed their way back to North Carolina so we could hangout and make some art together.   We did a couples shoot in downtown Durham, N.C. in the Central Park district popping into the world famous coffee shop, Cocoa Cinnamon.  

Before the shoot I gave Josh a little "homework assignment".  I told him to write Shelly a letter telling her what she means to him (you can see that moment below).   He crushed it as expected and melted her heart. 

We ended the session with a some portraits with Josh and Shelly's custom Brompton Bikes...followed by beers at Motorco of course.

I love photographing other artists.  They're my absolute favorite subjects because they're so willing to experiment, take risks and are intuitively creative.  When they're an artist couple...it's even better.  

Brian and Ellie are two amazing latin style dancers who recently started their own YouTube Channel.  I got to do a session with them while educating some other photographers in downtown Durham, N.C. at the Central Park District.

A few of the shots you see below were created by reflecting the surrounding environment off of my iPhone and into the lens.  A couple of the other shots were taken in a dry concrete swimming pool in a skate park and the final shot is an in-camera double exposure.
