Amber and Dan’s Engagement Session

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

I had heard Dorothea Dix had been converted into a park.  Amber suggested we shoot here.  I’m glad she did.  There are great opportunities to get the Raleigh skyline in the background.  Very much looking forward to your wedding!

Ashley and Josh’s Engagement Session

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Ashley and Josh won a free engagement session from me when they attended the Piedmont Bridal Show held at the Cole Auditorium in Hamlet, NC. I was a bit nervous due to both being photographers themselves. We hung out at Hinson Lake for a bit and had a swell time.

I really dig this area of the lake because of the back lighting.

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!

Katie and Wes’ Engagement Sessions

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

For Katie and Wes’ engagement photos, we started at Camp Millstone in Ellerbe, NC and ended up in downtown Southern Pines.  I was lucky enough to have my wife Michele with me in Ellerbe.  She helped me with the images from the canoe.

Above: These were lots of fun to shoot.  Thanks Michele!

Above and Below: Serious NCSU fans!

Above: This was our move to Southern Pines.  The train tracks in their downtown area are very fun to play with!

Above: I’m always trying to inject superhero imagery into things I shoot!

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.





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

My sitting with Alison and Brian was much more comfortable today than the ones this past week.  The temperature was around 50 degrees and the wind wasn’t crazy.  Both were fun to work with since they let me try a few shots I hadn’t done before.  I hope you both had a safe trip back to Cary.  Thanks again!

Katie and Derek Engagement Session

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

Katie and Derek were a lot of fun to hang around with. We walked all over Manteo taking photographs. We hit the piers on looking the Elizabeth II, the old courthouse and Manteo Booksellers to name a few. This is much more fun when the couple are into it. I can’t wait until their wedding. Unfortunately it isn’t until 2010.
