This editorial holds an especially meaningful place in our hearts because the couple, Abby and Luke, are some of our best friends and just happen to be the very first couple that we ever photographed!
That’s right! Radhika lived with Abby in college and back in 2011
, when Abby and Luke got engaged, they asked us to take their engagement photos. We’re happy to say that we’ve improved since then, but we still get a thrill when we see some of the photos framed on the walls of their home!
This editorial was done for The Durham Bride
, a resource guide for all things involving Durham weddings that was founded by Tiffany of The Details Events
. While there is no ONE quintessential
“Durham bride,” we were excited to partner with Tiffany for this editorial, which features the “classic” Durham bride, one who would opt for a traditional wedding at the King’s Daughters Inn, a dress with tons of movement, but maybe some glam (I mean, check out those heels)!
Tiffany pulled together so many artists and vendors to create this gorgeous day, and we loved being able to capture it all. Some of our favorite highlights:
- Caitlin of Happy Tines used real rock from Durham to create calligraphed place cards. We love that you can see the layers in the rock and soil that make up the very foundation of Durham itself in this shoot!
- Umm, the shoes.
- The absolutely autumnal colors in the tablescape and bouquet. In fact, if you’re planning on getting married in the fall, Tiffany just did a lot of heavy lifting for you! And with the pie to top it off, we can’t imagine anything better!
Here are some of our favorites from the day!
