Raleigh Engagement Photographer | Stacy & Alex


Stacy & Alex are planning on tieing the knot later this year -- and I mean late as in New Years Eve, and honestly, it's going to be one of the sweetest days ever. I had a bit of a small world moment when I met Stacy & Alex's parents at the Rickhouse bridal show earlier this year. Not only did I hit it off with Ms. Shirley (Stacy's mom who absolutely loves photography), but I also found out that Alex grew up right down the street from my husband, Jason. In fact, I had met his dad before about 3-4 years ago when I was visiting Jason's mom in Carrboro. 

The best thing about getting to know Stacy & Alex had to be the fact that they loved and appreciated agriculture. If you have known me the last 10 years, then you know that I have anxiously awaited to have a couple who could bond with me over agriculture. It's true, I love it. We wanted to incorporate some aspects of this into their session, and to my surprise, we actually came across cows by accident. I don't know how the world gives me these great gestures, but I will take them any day.

We started off the day at the beautiful JC Raulston Arboretum. It's filled with lush greenery, fun pops of color, and little garden sanctuaries we could join in for some fun portraits. Later, we found ourselves at the NCSU University Club. It was there that we found the cows and I also found out those were Stacy's favorite animal. Thank you, universe. 

It was fun getting to know these two and I can't wait until their wedding later this year.
