As spring descends here in North Carolina (as well as the pollen), I had the honor of heading out with my wedding clients, Mandy & Cary, to take some Raleigh engagement pictures for them. If you read my blog, you’ll already know my approach to things… get a “feel” for my clients personality and set the session in an area that will compliment their styles & tastes. In this case, Mandy & Cary are having their wedding in downtown Raleigh so, well, that’s where we also shot their engagement pictures.
We started very close to Fayetteville St using a cool walkway with some newly blooming trees in the background. We moved down towards Moore Square as they also brought their 4 legged family member with them and we needed so grass time. I don’t do a lot of pet photography but I’ve had a shot in mind for some time that I wanted to do, and this was a great opportunity. After a friend picked up their dog, we kept strolling around the downtown Raleigh area hitting a few familiar places but also discovering quite a few new ones that, frankly, I got really excited about. For me, I follow the light instead of the place.
We also headed up to the Stockroom, where their wedding reception will be, and got some impromptu shots. When we came outside, the sun had set and we finished off the evening with some very cool twilight photography that really shows off how gorgeous the downtown area, and my couple, are when put together. As always, here are a few shots from their session! I hope you enjoy!
