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:

I met up with Kathryn and Justin a few weeks back to shoot their engagement pictures around Duke Gardens. It was one of the first warm days of spring so the gardens were were pretty packed. We took some time to venture off the beaten track to find some space to ourselves. Here are a few of my fave pics from the shoot.

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 ...
