Cassidy and Derrick's NSCU/Downtown Raleigh Engagment

It feels so good to finally be getting shoots out the door and also on the blog! October has been a whirlwind of a month! I must thank all of my dear clients for being so patient with me as I get caught up. I am so blessed to work with such nice people! Cassidy and Derrick are two of the nicest! I was so excited to book their wedding for next April, because it sounds like it is going to be amaaaazing! They have some really fun plans for their wedding day, and I can't wait to see it all come together. But in the meantime, we had an awesome engagement shoot recently on the campus of NC State and around downtown Raleigh. These two were a little worried they wouldn't be comfortable in front of the camera, but they totally rocked it! It is such a pleasure to photograph people who are so comfortable with each other that they are able to forget about the camera. We had a beautiful day for shooting, and we made the most out of it. Here are the results!

We started off at the NCSU bell tower. A definite State landmark!

We ended up at the Court of Carolinas for some frisbee! Derrick was on the NCSU Ultimate Frisbee team, and even had an official Wolfpack Ultimate frisbee!

From there we headed to City Market in downtown and a wardrobe change :-)

I got a lot of pictures of these guys being themselves! I love how silly and playful the were with each other.

I really liked this series of sweet images in front of a brown barn door. They just seem so peaceful :-)

Fact: This is the first time I have shot in front of the fruit mural on the back side of City Market! I've always wanted to, and finally I got to! And I love the color combo of their clothes and the wall.

Our final mission was to get a shot with the Raleigh skyline in the background. I was quite please with this new vantage point we discovered!

And they lived happily ever after. The end. :-)

Cassidy and Derrick, I can't wait until April! :-) You guys were such a treat to photograph, and I know the wedding will be so much fun!

Bethany and Lucas Wed!

Bethany and Lucas' wedding started off on a drizzly morning in late September. I was worried about the weather affecting their plans for an outdoor, lakeside ceremony, but the clouds finally lifted, and the sun came out, and it turned into a beautiful day! Bethany and Lucas impressed me with their tender emotions and love for each other throughout the day. They laughed and cried and rejoiced in their new marriage with their friends and family. I was also thrilled, that we got to take extra couple pictures in downtown Charlotte after the reception! That always makes for a fun and relaxed ending to a wedding day, and not to mention tons of cute pictures! Here are a few highlights from their wedding day!


Ha, I really hate to do this to Bethany, but I love this moment so much!

Bethany made a beautiful bride!

Her brothers donned mustaches like their father. Love it!

The handsome groom!

Bethany and Lucas had a neat time of worship at the very start of their ceremony. They both were overcome with emotion at different points, and it was so sweet to witness their passion for God and each other.

They played a sweet little slideshow at the reception that had everyone laughing and crying.

The mustaches reappeared :-)

You are never too old for bubbles!

Now for a wardrobe change and some fun pics in downtown Charlotte!

Fun fact about this sculpture, I saw another piece of sculpture by the same artist in the Vatican in Rome earlier this year. Small world!

I was really digging this window shot!

Thank you, Bethany and Lucas for allowing me the privilege of documenting your wedding day! It was so nice to get to know you and celebrate your marriage with you! I hope that you will enjoy all of the pictures! God bless!
