Durham, NC Engagement Session at Motorco and Bar Virgile


Leslie and Jean were my kind of people. They enjoy the rain, which worked out in our favor for their engagement session, and liked images that were a tad bit off the cuff. We met right as the sun was tired at one of their favorite hole in the walls—Bar Virgile. After a drink or two there, we waited for the rain to stop momentarily and then bolted to the parking deck right beside Bar Virgile.

The parking deck is kind of like my secret hiding spot. It’s fun to go there at night and watch the fireworks after the Durham Bulls play. However, for photos it is absolutely gorgeous because you can see downtown Durham, the American Tobacco Campus, and the fun neon bull sign that welcomes everyone to the city. I loved that Leslie and Jean were up for this—they love Durham as much as I do.

We capped the night off at Motorco. This little area is one of MY favorites because it is full of color and those twinkly street lights. We finished just in time before the next batch of rain came.
