A Summer Engagement Shoot at Dix Park | Raleigh Engagement Photographer

Who remembers when the sunflowers were in bloom at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, NC? I remember there was a huge buzz a few weeks before they were in bloom, and know SO many people who were making plans to go see the sunflowers! Tiffany and Roy also chose to jump on the special opportunity to take photos with the sunflowers for their engagement photo shoot in Raleigh, and I'm SO glad they did! We had BEAUTIFUL LIGHT and the sunflowers were vibrant and in full bloom. It was truly a fun evening capturing this exciting new season for Roy and Tiffany, and getting to know the two of them better!

Roy is from a church here in Durham, NC and Tiffany is from a church in Ohio. They met when they both volunteered in a short-term mission trip to Taiwan in the summer of 2016, and taught English to elementary schools. Even though they didn't interact much during the trip, Roy reached out to a few Ohio team members afterwards to keep in touch, and that's when they began to chat...about everything!! They started dating in December 2016, and dated long-distance for the next year. In December of 2017, that's when Roy proposed to Tiffany!!

Enjoy scrolling through some of my favorite photos from the engagement session! I absolutely loved capturing their interactions with each other--they truly have a way of making each other laugh and giggle! You'll also notice they wore matching beaded bracelets for the photo shoot, which was something they wore while they were dating! Isn't that so sweet?! I look forward to photographing and serving this beautiful couple on their wedding day!!

A Romantic Surprise Proposal | Raleigh Engagement Photographer

One of the things I LOVE as a photographer is that you get to capture life-changing moments for others :) When I received a phone call from Chirag a few weeks ago, I learned he was calling from the west coast and was going to be in town soon to propose to his then-girlfriend, Sneha, in her hometown of Cary, NC. It was going to be a special moment because his family will be flying in from Houston and her family and friends will be present, too!

When I arrived at the venue, the gazebo was beautifully decorated with lights, flower petals, and sweet photos of the two of them throughout the last few years. As we waited for Sneha to arrive, I could literally feel the excitement and anticipation! Once she arrived, Chirag walked Sneha around the gazebo reflecting on their journey together, then got down on one knee to ask the question...and she said YES!! :)

One of the other memorable moments of this night was meeting their family, and they were so warm and welcoming! I honestly felt like I was a part of their family! It was also beautiful to see how much JOY there was, and we were all smiling and laughing by the end of the night. We ended the session with some fun group photos, red velvet cake, and a couple of intimate portraits of Chirag and Sneha!

Here are a few of my favorites from the night. Enjoy!
