downtown raleigh engagement session – vanessa & jimmy

Engagements

Dear Internets,

The Raleigh wedding photography season is in full swing and that means lots of great engagement sessions to post! Vanessa and Jimmy’s took place a couple of weeks back. We met up for a frosty beer (or three) at The Hive bar over the Busy Bee Café in downtown Raleigh. This was the spot the happy couple met at last year, which was great news for me as it has some pretty amazing light to work with as well as some pretty tasty beer!

Once we had broken the ice, we headed out for a walk around downtown Raleigh. Vanessa and Jimmy will be getting hitched next month at Sacred Heart Cathedral, just around the corner from the Capitol building, so we made that one of our stops along the way. From there we headed back to the bar for a quick break and some more pics. After a quick change of clothes for Vanessa, we sallied forth once more onto Fayetteville Street to take in the sites and architecture, which we weaved into the photos. Here are just a few of my faves from the session:

A couple of weekends ago, I met up with Kim and Jeff for their Raleigh engagement photography shoot at Jeff's parents farm in Fuquay-Varina. We had a couple of beers and then headed out to take some shots as the sun set and the "Super Moon" made its appearance. It was a really lovely evening and we had a lot of fun exploring the light and trying to make each other laugh. Here are just a few of my faves from the shoot...

I've been a bit sporadic with my updates recently; it's been a crazy autumn and things are only just starting to slow down for me. Anyway, I plan to catch up over the next few weeks, so we're all good! To get things back on track, what better way than this recent Raleigh engagement photography session? I had no idea there were so many cotton fields around these parts! I guess I need to get out more. If this shoot is anything to go by, I definitely will be going back! Big thanks to Kelly and Cameron for being such fab people for suggesting the location and allowing me to change the date to avoid the rain and catch the best light. Looking ...
