Amy+Keith: Married! Belt Line Station, Durham, North Carolina Wedding Photographer

Looking back at the first meeting we had at The Raleigh Times, I knew these two were a great fit.. I remember leaving with lots of laughs and a hug.  This was a perfect match.  

Amy is an amazing artist (www.amydraws.com) .. seriously, I have her art hanging over my computer and look at it every day with the reminder that this little dream I'm living is possible.. and that I "Refuse to Sink".  Her piece was a gift to me on their wedding day and I will always cherish it!  Keith runs an awesome screen printing company called DogWood Print (www.dogwoodprint.com).. Two very creative souls could not have picked out a cooler venue in Durham to celebrate with friends and family, than Belt Line Station!  This is the funkier, outdoor complement to it's sister and next door venue The Cotton Room in Durham.  Beltline Station is a restored train landing of the former freight depot, the Golden Belt. 

Such a cool spot! Exposed brick, open air, and beautiful string lights everywhere! 

These two are very special to me and I consider myself very lucky to call them friends.  I went over a couple of weeks ago to photograph some of Amy's goods for her Etsy shop and it was so good to see them and of course Scout, their amazing dog,  too!  

Enjoy some of my very favorite images I've captured this year!  This wedding was absolutely one of my very favorites!  There was a first look with Amy's Dad and then with Keith.  Amy had a first dance with her mom that quickly turned into a hug fest with her mom and two other sisters!  

DJ Triple B, seriously, I love working weddings with him. This was the second one I've had a chance to work with him on and he's just fantastic.. the music.  Oh, the music! 

I walked away that night thinking "I've not laughed until I cried at a wedding, I think, ever"  I had so much fun, thank you Amy+Keith for trusting me with these moments. 

Huge thank you to Travis Hinton for assisting!
