wedding photographers in raleigh nc ~ engagement session for jessica and bo

Engagements

With the season over for us Raleigh wedding photographers, I’m already looking forward to what 2013 has to offer! First up will be Jessica and Bo, whose Carolina Inn wedding I will be shooting in a few weeks. Their Chapel Hill engagement session took place one grey Sunday morning in November, where we met at the Carolina Inn, had a leisurely brunch at the Carolina Coffee Shop where we had a chat and got to know each other a little better, and then headed out to take pictures around the area.

It was a fun-packed and eventful session where we laughed, cried and I got ambushed by a rather large and playful Irish red setter. What can I say? We all have to suffer for out art. Thankfully, I came out unscathed and so did the pooch.

Jessica and Bo have a lot of fun together and that definitely showed through in the photos. Again, direction here was minimal; I prefer to take photos of people as they really are versus setting up cheesy poses that look uncomfortable for everyone involved. This is Jessica and Bo as they really are: fun, happy and in love.

Here are a few of my faves from their sesh:

It's been a while since I shared an engagement session and I've shot quite a few over the last few weeks. So let's put that right! Here's a Duke Gardens engagement session I photographed a few weeks ago. I've known Nikki for a few years through some corporate work I did a few years back with what is now The Pink Ceiling. So I was really pleased when, a few months back, I heard that she'd got engaged to John and wanted me to photograph her wedding for her. As I always like to do, we met up at a bar for a few drinks to chat and loosen up a bit before heading over to the gardens. I like to make it a natural progression from when we meet to wh ...

Rain Stops Play - Well, actually it was the catalyst for a really fun (and different) engagement shoot with Melanie and Anthony. We met up at West End Wine Bar in Durham and were on our way out when the heavens opened and a summer rainstorm was suddenly unleashed upon us. It was a total downpour, so we headed back inside. The original plan was to wait it out, but as the rain never looked like letting up, we switched gears and started using the environment we were in for some portraits. Melanie and Anthony had originally wanted a vintage Hollywood vibe for their engagement session anyway, so we walked to some of the cool spots in downtown Durh ...

I met up with Abby & Chad on a chilly, cloudy Sunday for a beer and a chat at James Joyce's in downtown Durham, followed by a fun walk around Duke Gardens for their engagement photography session. Cloudy days bring a certain mood and the light was beautifully soft that afternoon. Abby & Chad went with two very contrasting looks for their session. Here are just a few of my faves from our time together. Luckily, the rain held off right till the very end...
