Zoe + Alison \\ LGBTQ Courthouse Wedding, Durham, NC

Zoe and Allison first met me over drinks at Motorco Parts and Labor to meet and talk about them tying the knot at the Durham County Courthouse in Summer of 2018. We had gin and local NC libations of course…I mean it’s DURM!

They told me about how they met teaching together at the same high school and the story of how they eventually fell in love.

On their wedding day we met on a Monday morning at the courthouse about an hour before they were scheduled to get hitched so we could take some photos of them feeling beautiful together. This was a really special time because they had a few moments together before the ceremony to connect, take some deep breaths and remember why they decided to get married in the first place. Also, this was the first time they had photos taken together which made me really excited!

After the portraits we headed in the courthouse for some quick paper work and then went upstairs to the Magistrates office to get hitched!

It was the sweetest ceremony and afterwards we walked over to Tobacco Road for champagne and lunch.

Rema, Yousef, and I hiked out to Merritt's Pasture near Chapel Hill, NC for this wedding photography session.  I'm really grateful for their sense of adventure while still looking like they did through it all!

 
 
Angela + Angela \\ Durham, NC

Angela and Angela were so connected during this shoot in downtown Durham.  This was the first couples session that they've had in their in their 18 years together.  What a privilege and honor.  

For this shoot we chose the Highway 147 overpass just near the American Tobacco Campus and then wandered down the American Tobacco Trail to chase some light and vibes.

I'm continually amazed and grateful for the people that I get to meet and the unique experiences that I get to enjoy being a photographer.  

If you've followed me for a while then you might have seen my work with Stelth Ulvang (of The Lumineers), Griffin House, Ben Sollee and many more musicians

This was a similar shoot I did with Colorado musician Gregory Alan Isakov in Durham, N.C. right outside of the Carolina Theatre. 

All photos were shot with the Canon 5D Mark lll using the Tiltshift 45mm lens.

Nick + Summer \\ Sundance & Deer Valley, UT

Nick and Summer's wedding was such a unique, adventurous day.  We started at Sundance Mountain Resort for a beautiful chairlift ride to the top of the mountain where we hiked to the ceremony destination. 

After the ceremony, we had a few hours until the reception at Deer Valley Resort so we took advantage of the gorgeous scenery which allowed for some wonderfully meaningful experiences with Nick and Summer.

The reception ended the night with dinner, drinks and dancing while the sun set and the stars came out.   

 
 
 
Mandolin Orange \\ Durham, NC

 

I took Andrew and Emily of Mandolin Orange to a parking garage in Durham, NC where the light is consistently lovely and the acoustics for sound are eerie as hell. 

I knew that I wanted to have them both sing an a cappella version of one of their songs during the shoot so I stopped them about halfway through, had them face each other and they sang this version of "Lonesome Whistle".   

Melora + Conor \\ Durham, NC
Molly + Asher \\ Eno River, NC

On a beautiful Sunday morning, Molly, Asher and their dog Basil, met me and we ventured out to the Eno River for a sunrise engagement photo session.  This one was special because we all got to know each other by enjoying nature together and plus we used the opportunity to capture Molly and Asher's (and Basil too) connection as they approach their wedding day!

 
 
Alex + Justin \\ Durham, NC

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.

 

 
 
Rebecca + Jake \\ Raleigh, NC

This wedding was such a great time for me and the couple.  We started at the Borden House for the ceremony and the cocktail hour.  Afterwards we hopped on the Axes and Ales firetruck towards downtown Raleigh for portraits.  Finally we finished the evening with a catered dinner and creative portraits at the NC Museum of Art
