Every so often I get a lovely couple for an e-session but, for whatever reason, I can’t photograph their wedding. Nabila & Ali did exactly that. Their wedding is taking place overseas and I was already booked for their date but still wanted to head out with me for an engagement session. As Ali is in grad school at Duke University, they wanted to do their e-session photography on campus as well as a few other places in and around Durham. Nabila, I am very flattered to say, was a huge fan of my work, so being able to work with her an Ali was a real treat for me.
We started out around Duke Chapel on the Duke University Campus and did some work, both together and individual portraits of them both. The architecture is so completely beautiful around the chapel that it makes it one of my favorite places in the world to photograph. Add into that a smokin’ hot couple and you’ve got a recipe for an awesome engagement session.
After we left the Duke chapel, we headed over to Brightleaf square in Durham. Brightleaf square is a renovated tobacco warehouse that now houses jewelry stores, restaurants, coffee shops and other assorted shops in a very quaint and romantic setting. In other words, perfect for an engagement session. To make it even better, we stopped in a coffee shop where my lovely couple had their first date.
I hope you enjoy a few select photos from Nabila & Ali’s engagement session!
