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...... 

Durham Bulls Stadium Save the Date Photographer | Amanda+Paul

Amanda and Paul took me to my VERY first Durham Bulls baseball game!  Back in July we basically recreated their very first date! <3  

For their save the dates we were trying to come up with a unique place that really represented who they were as a couple.. I think Paul said "it would be cool if we could get into the Durham Bulls Stadium for a few shots.."  I told them I would see what I could do! 

I reached out to some of my awesome resources and I was reaching dead ends.. and then Amanda emailed me that

"Sooo it just so happens that we got offered free tickets to the Home Run Derby at a July 4th party yesterday!! :)"

Yes.. this was perfect!  So we walked around American Tobacco Campus and then made our way into the stadium for the rest of their session.  We literally left at the best possible second we could've!  See there were clouds moving in.. huge, dark, ominous clouds.  We made our way onto the top deck of the parking deck to literally grab maybe 10 shots.. and then the sky just opened up as we walked right into the elevator!  

One of those awesome shots made it onto their save the dates!  Thanks to these guys for taking that extra moment to grab those even when we thought we were going to be caught in that crazy storm!! 

Seriously can not wait to see them again for their engagements and to photograph their wedding at the Sutherland next May! <3
