American Tobacco Campus Engagement Photographer : Durham, North Carolina | Kelly+Logan

There's something about my couples.  It's a connection.  When I was sitting down talking to my amazing designer, Ravyn of Three Fifteen Design, who's helping me rebrand we talked about "my couples" and how to define them.  In all aspects of business you have a target market.  Who YOU want to work with and that they want to work with YOU! I knew the moment we sat down at the Flying Saucer, Kelly and Logan had a flight in front of them, they looked like a couple in love and also best friends.  I knew from the first few minutes of that meet up, that I wanted to work with THEM and by the end I knew they wanted to work with ME! They easily fell into the category of being  one of "MY COUPLES" ;) 

The day we met up for their engagements, we once again battled crazy weather!  I had just left a bridal session in Chapel Hill where huge raindrops had just started and I knew they were coming in from Greenville and I wanted to make sure this wasn't a wasted/rained out trip! We frantically texted each other what the weather was like where we were.... "tears were almost shed" but we avoided the crazy thunderstorms and downpours and had a lovely session at ATC in Downtown Durham! 

SO Funny and one of the best stories about Kelly and Logan is that when we met up, they actually, technically, weren't engaged! HAHAH Logan had really wanted for the right moment to present itself! and he remedied that soon after our meet up during a trip to Savannah with Kelly.  In front of Forsyth Park's famous fountain, Logan went down on one knee and asked Kelly to marry him with a gorgeous emerald cut solitaire! Their parents came out of hiding to celebrate! The funniest part is when they were telling me about it, they said some random person came up and asked "are you getting ready to propose?!" as they were walking around the fountain.. HAHAHAH Why would someone DO THAT!! Just an FYI, if you see someone you may THINK is going to propose.. don't ask.. just let it happen and consider yourself lucky to be there! ;) 

I'm excited for these two, who just bought a house and can soon be in the same city!! They've been living apart due to careers and sharing the puppy parenting with their beautiful pup, Darby. Who I know will be so incredibly happy to have her parents together under one roof! So looking forward to their wedding in October at Mordecai with a reception at Caffe Luna. Enjoy my favorites from their engagement session this past April.



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......
