Courtney & Danuel | Columbia, NC | Engagement

Happy New Year!

2015 had been such a blessing! I am so excited to see what 2016 has in store.  This year Jason and I sat down and wrote all of our goals we wish to reach.  One of the biggest ones on my list is to meet and collaborate with like minded people.  Coincidentally, the session with Courtney and Danuel  went hand in hand with my goal. I don't think I could have wished for a more in-tune couple than these two.

The whole time leading up to this day Courtney kept telling me "oh, we are weird! There is no way you could capture anything good of us!"  Well, I did. And, this session came out epic. 

As a photographer I always try to find how my couples LOVE.  As a professional it may be hard not to place everyone in the same "box."  You know, like pose this person here, smile this way, twirl her, etc. It could be a bit redundant with each session. The key is to understand each couple how THEY are.  Not everyone loves the same. Once  you have a grasp on how they love, you have the amazing power to capture them in their truest form. There is no better gratification.

Courtney and Danuel are the absolute sweetest couple. Their love digs deep. And, they are pretty goofy (which is A O.K. with me!). The way Danuel looked at Courtney about took my breath away.  It is something so sweet and special to witness a love like this.

We went to Columbia, NC for their engagement session. Fun fact, Courtney and I are from the same part of town (Northeastern NC)! It was only fair to go there for their engagement session. I've missed this place.

I am so ecstatic to photograph their wedding this July!
