Church/ecclesiastical architectural photographers

Please delete/move if there's a better place for this, but I couldn't find one and I'm sure there are people here who will have suggestions.

Frederick H. Evans and Roger Fenton immediately spring to mind, but are there any other historical or contemporary photographers associated with the photography of ecclesiastical architecture? Photographers primarily associated with church architecture would be great, and I'm more interested in external features rather than interiors.

A few others I can recall or have discovered:

Eric de Maré
Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey's early images of Jerusalem
Markus Brunetti's European church/cathedral facades
Peter Marlow's interiors
Thomas Struth's pantheon and other religious sites

Slight tangent:

Muhammad Sadiq Bey's photographs of Mecca/Medina

Perhaps of interest to some, the leading candidate for the earliest photograph of New York City is a daguerreotype of a Unitarian church by Samuel Morse and John Draper:

And of course, feel free to post your own. I've seen one or two very nice images of churches posted the short time I've been here.
