JC Raulston Arboretum, Raleigh, NC Save the Date Photographer | Amy+Tony

Amy and I met up in a Starbucks on a super cold and rainy day in  December to chat all about her wedding!  I love it when I meet with a bride or couple and during the meet up at some point all of the people around us fall away.. We were laughing, slapping the table, comparing cuteness of our fur kids on our iPhones, just enjoying the time together like old friends catching up. 

I asked her to describe Tony to me.. "he's my balance" I think is what she said.. or something like that.. See, Amy is VIBRANT!! She's loud, she's expressive, her mind is going a million times a minute.. Tony is the calm one, the relaxed one, the problem solver.. I KNEW Tony and I would get along.. I was like "Tony's just like me!" HAHAHAHAAH.. 

I could not be happier to be chosen as their wedding photographer for their wedding in October!

We decided JC Raulston would be a great place to meet up for their Save the Dates.. just looking at how these turned out I am ECSTATIC to see how their Engagements and Wedding Day images are going to be!!! <3 

More to come from these two...... 


Cordie : Bridal Portrait, JC Raulston Arboretum, Raleigh, North Carolina Wedding Photographer

Cordie and I along with her maid of honor and little sister met out at JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh to shoot her bridal portraits back in September!  I remember the day very well.. we were once again chasing the light and praying the rain would hold off.. and if raindrops on your wedding dress mean good luck, well, let's just say Cordie and Christian's marriage is drenched in LUCK!  We ended Cordie's Bridal Portrait session with her pulling up her dress and running as fast as she could to shelter!  The rain DID not hold off and we pushed it to the limit!! but from the images below we still pulled off some beautiful portraits! <3

Cordie+Christian : Engaged! NCSU and Downtown Raleigh Engagement Session

I was showing these photos to a friend today and realized I'd only shared FOUR on facebook!! It quickly prompted me to do a blog post!  Love this couple and am patiently waiting their approaching wedding date this October!  We met up back in April to photograph their engagement/save the date photos!  Their love for NCSU took us to the campus which photographs beautifully.. Love the layout of this campus!  and they brought along they SUPER cute pup! and we had a great evening walking around campus and then headed to Boylan Bridge to catch the amazing sunset and skyline of downtown Raleigh! Oh and BEER! Yes, Christian is a brewer so it was only fitting we would end up here! <3 Enjoy the following favorites from their engagement session!
