I had the past weekend off so I used the opportunity to fit in a few wedding client shoots. Brook & Ashley wanted Duke Gardens Engagement Photos but also wanted to stop by Bay Seven, Duke Chapel and, my favorite, Cameron Indoor Stadium (Where the Duke Blue Devils play basketball). We were all a little concerned about the weather so we ended up dodging a few raindrops and getting some incredible engagement photos!
Brook and Ashley are getting married at the Mast Farm inn next year so, in keeping with that theme, getting some Duke Gardens Engagement Photos definitely was fitting. The skies were nice enough to hold off on us and provided some really cool light to shoot their engagement session with. I’ve been to Duke Gardens on quite a few occasions for bridal portraits, wedding and engagement sessions but, for some reason, I had never really gone over to one side of the area. Not sure why but Brook and Ashley knew their way around and it was like discovering an entirely new world. A beautiful white bridge spanning the water and, what I can best describe as a jigsaw bridge were just two features that we came across. There are so many beautiful places in the gardens that, honestly, I could take photos everyday for a year and still not cover the entire park.
I’d like to wish Brook & Ashley a very happy engagement and am really looking forward to your wedding next year! Here are a few photos to enjoy!
