Durham, NC Wedding & reception venue photography

This was definitely a different assignment for me. I was a backup photographer for a wedding over Labor Day weekend, specifically hired to capture interior venues with my tilt-shift lens. The wedding took place in a church near Duke University and the reception followed at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham, NC.

Using a tilt-shift lens during a live event such as a wedding is much different than many of my architectural still assignments. For one, everything’s in continual motion and it’s very crowded. The lens requires manual focus and a tripod so to move quickly in and out of the wedding and remain as unobtrusive as possible was a challenge. But for shooting overall venue shots, especially in a place like ATC can make for an added value.

I’ll admit it felt good taking photos and not having to worry if the windows were blown out. 😉 Here are some of the photos below.
