American Tobacco Campus Engagement Session | Chris & CJ

What’s the best compliment a wedding photographer can receive?  For me, it’s being asked to shoot the wedding of another wedding photographer.  Chris has a thriving wedding photography studio in Wilmington, NC and we met, funnily enough, in Nashville, TN at a photography convention early this year.  We kept in touch over the months and met up for lunch one day to, of course, talk about wedding photography.  What I didn’t know, and still laugh about to this day, is that he was talking about HIS wedding – not just something generic.  So, after my cloud of confusion cleared, and we had a few laughs, I had a new wedding client with our first shoot taking place at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham.

Photographing a wedding photographer is, in all honesty, a very fun event full of gamesmanship.  I’m trying to see if he is looking at what I am doing then I do things to make him think, what the heck is he doing???  I suppose it’s going to be like that with any profession but, with me, I just wanted to have some fun with it. :)  Chris & CJ wanted their e-session at one of my favorite places – the American Tobacco campus (Bay 7) around sunset.  As we got down to business one thing became very apparent – CJ & Chris really love each other and we ended up with some really stellar engagement photography. The one thing I love most about the American Tobacco Campus is the feeling of urban revitalization and how well if fits Chris & CJ’s photography session.

As always, here are a select few of my favorite photos from their session!
