A Sweet Proposal at NC State | Raleigh Engagement Photographer

I had the honor of documenting Blake and Cassandra’s sweet proposal last month at NC State! When Blake I were chatting and planning for the shoot, I learned that Cassandra is a NC State alum and is a huge Wolfpack fan! He wanted to take photos some place that was meaningful, and decided to do the proposal at Primrose Hall, a beautiful brick building on campus that she loves.

When I got to Primrose Hall the day of our shoot, I did a quick walk around to make sure there wasn’t anyone using the spot, and fortunately we had the spot to ourselves! I was also pleased with the lighting; we took photos during the golden hour and the light was absolutely perfect! When Blake and Cassandra arrived, he came with her blindfolded. He then took it off once they got in front of the building, and her expression was priceless! She was so happy and excited, and I remember I couldn’t help but smile too!! :)

After the proposal, we walked around campus taking engagement photos and it was SO fun! Blake was also prepared and brought fun signs (i.e., “he asked” and “she said yes!”) to celebrate their engagement! It truly was a joy getting to know the both of them better, and to capture them laughing and interacting with one another! Congrats, Blake and Cassandra, and I can’t wait to capture your wedding day in the spring!

Gorgeous Maternity Session at UNC | Chapel Hill Maternity Photographer

I am SO excited to blog about this gorgeous maternity session with Melody and Chris! They met as students at UNC and have been married for 10 years, and desired to take photos at their alma mater. I LOVED that they chose a location that was meaningful to them because it shows a part of their family story! :) We also included their adorable Italian Greyhound, Tebow, in the shoot (yes, he’s named after Tim Tebow!) and he did such a great job during the session!

We started off the shoot by taking photos by the Old Well, one of the most iconic spots at UNC. We then took photos in front of the South Building and then at McCorkle Place. Both spots made absolutely stunning backdrops, and I personally loved how the brick added an academic and historical look to their photos! Another fun spot we took photos at was at Davie Bench, also known as the “Kissing Bench.” The legend is that if a couple kisses on that bench, they’ll get married! The funny thing was that Melody and Chris haven’t kissed on that bench before, but we thought it would still be fun to do it since they are married! :)

We then ended our shoot on Franklin Street, and took photos in front of the Carolina Coffee Shop (a place where they would frequently go as students!) and also took a couple of photos of them walking on Franklin. It was truly a meaningful and sweet way to end the session! Enjoy some of my favorite photos below, and I can’t wait to meet their baby girl!!

Charlotte + John-Michael | Wedding at Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral

I had the wonderful honor of capturing Charlotte and John-Michael’s wedding last month! They are a cheerful and laid-back couple, and met at NC State University. They will be moving to Seattle (my hometown!) soon after the wedding because Charlotte will begin her Bioengineering graduate program at the University of Washington (my alma mater!).

There were so many sweet and tender moments throughout the day, and one of my favorites was documenting Charlotte and John-Michael praying together before the ceremony instead of doing a first look. The chapel they prayed in was absolutely beautiful, quiet, and peaceful, and was truly the perfect place to have a moment together! Another favorite moment of mine was taking group photos after the ceremony. We did an impromptu photo with all of their friends from NC State and doing the Wolfpack sign! It was such a fun photo to do!

We then headed to The Royal Banquet and Conference Center for the reception, and it was a lovely venue! The toasts from the wedding party were hilarious, and the dancing was incredible! For the sendoff, they decided to use bubbles. One of my favorite photos is one showing a bubble hovering right above Charlotte’s hand, and her expression is priceless!

Enjoy some of my favorite photos below, and BIG congrats to Charlotte and John-Michael!!!
