Brandi and Chris’ Engagement Session

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

There just isn’t enough light in a day when it comes to working with Brandi and Chris.  Both are photographers themselves. If the sun had not set, I could have kept shooting.  They are such a joy to work with, that it doesn’t seem like work.  I was honored when I was asked to capture their day.  Anytime another photographer hires me, I feel especially grateful.

Thanks Brandi and Chris.  And congratulations!

Marcie and Ben’s Engagement Session

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

This was my first shoot in Bennettsville, SC.  I do not get this way often.  I was amazed at the photogenic locations to be had.  Marci, Ben, and I had much fun shooting in and around this historic home across the street from their wedding site.

This was a favorite of ours. It was printed on canvas and gifted to Marci and Ben.

Marci is quite adorable with those boots!

The colorful landscaping at the house made for striking background colors.

We were allowed to go into the attic of the house. It made for great window lighting!

There is an old barn type building in the back. Structures like this make for great black and white images.

We ended the session by going to the church across the street and playing on the swings!

Thanks so much to Marci and Ben for choosing me as their photographer.  I will have their wedding images up soon!

Jennifer and Mac’s Engagement Session!

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Jennifer, Mac, and I had a lot of fun on Sunday!  It isn’t often I find a couple who are both super-excited about their engagement images.  Both brought props and wardrobe that complimented our shooting areas.  If would have kept shooting if the sun hadn’t set!

Congratulations to you both!  Looking forward to your wedding next year!

A Very Nice Card From My Last Bride And Groom!

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

I received this nice photo in the mail yesterday.  It is from Katie and Wes.  Their wedding was in Seven Lakes, NC.  The image of them writing “Thank You” is from their engagement session.  In most cases, I include a free engagement session for my clients.  It’s an excellent way to create “Thank You” cards for friends and family after the wedding.  Thank you Katie and Wes!

Angineek and Kevin’s Engagement Session

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

I had the pleasure of working with Angineek and Kevin today.  We met at the Hamlet lake for some photos. We then hopped around Hamlet to shoot here and there.  Congrats on your engagement!

Jordan and Nick’s Engagement Session

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Thanks so much to Jordan and Nick for showing me this merry-go-round!

Their pet ferrets were hilarious!  They put liquid on their hands and noses to interact with them for the photos.

Congratulations to you both.  Looking forward to the wedding!

Mike and Sharon’s Engagement Session

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

After a false start (my fault) Mike, Sharon, and I tooled around downtown Rockingham.  Afterwords we went to Hinson Lake.  I should go out there more often.  It’s quite nice.

I’m so so happy Jill and Tim had time for their engagement photos before their wedding in a few days.  We plan to take some of these images and make a sign in book for their reception!

Erin and Trey Engagement Session

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

Erin, Trey and I were having a great time shooting their engagement session in downtown Rockingham.  We shot between the Daily Journal and the Library.  Afterwords, we left to go to the remains of Safie Mill in East Rockingham.  It was there I had an accident while shooting them. I was lucky enough to be taken care of by Erin and Trey.  They got me home and called my fiance.  A sincere thanks to you both.  -duane
