A week or so ago, I spent a couple of hours on a Saturday evening hanging out with Lisa and Mark in downtown Raleigh for their engagement session. We had a couple of drinks in The Oxford (I need to keep it real and English) to catch up and loosen up a little before heading out for a walk around Fayetteville Street. It really is a great area with a lot of unique nooks and crannies to take pictures in, as well as the lovely State Capitol building, which provided the backdrop to some of our images.
After a pretty crappy day of rain and thunder, we were treated to a lovely spring evening of sunshine. That, combined with Lisa and Mark’s chemistry and evident love for each other, made for a really fun few hours. As usual for me, nothing here was really posed or staged, other than showing them where to sit or stand. Everything else is the true emotion of how they interacted on the day. With such a great couple, who needs to direct?
Here are my picks from the evening. One of my favourite shoots so far. Thanks guys!
