North Carolina Museum of Art Engagement Session

Oh, this engagement session was some kind of magical! I say this all the time, but I really do meet the best people! Audrey and David were such a joy to be around, and I could tell these two had some major love to go around!

We started their engagement session in downtown Raleigh in Market Square. If you have been to any weddings in that general area, you probably remember the sweet venue Market Hall. That beautiful cobblestone street that the venue sits on is exactly where we went for the first portion of their engagement session. It was beautiful, classic, and with these two in it, it made for some pretty pictures.

Later, we went over to NCMA (North Carolina Museum of Art) and basked in some of their pretty grounds. I loved the shaded areas in between the trees, but some of my favorites were right under one of their beautiful willow trees out back. It was a recipe for beautiful images, and I am glad I had the honor of photographing these two.

Congratulations, Audrey & David!

Gabi | Bridal Portrait Session | North Carolina Museum of Art

Oh, my heart! There is just one thing that makes me swoon over and over again; bridals. Yes! There is no hustle and bustle of the BIG day, less stress, and just more time to get those most intimate shots of the bride and her dress. I love bridal sessions because it gives the bride an idea of how everything will look. It's her trial run, for lack of a better term. This is her chance to see how the hair will feel throughout the session. Will she need more pins? Or would she actually prefer to have her hair down? Her flowers, this gives her enough time to see how she actually likes the bouquet and how it will look against her dress. 

And most importantly, this is the session where more than likely she will choose the image to give to her parents to hang on their wall. Their daughter, in all her glory, just as beautiful as the day she was born. That, in itself, is such an important part of what I do. 

Pictured below is the gorgeous bridal session with Gabi. I mean, is this lady beautiful or what?! Everything from the hair, the makeup, the flowers, the venue, and the GOWN! Oh, that gown is to die for! We had so much fun during this session, I am so happy to present to you some of my favorite photographs from the session!
