For those of you that know me or at least follow my blog, you’ll know I have a true affinity for Urban environment photography. I take every chance I can to photograph in downtown Raleigh, no matter if it’s a wedding, a model or, in this case, an engagement session. Marianna & Brian were happy for their engagement session photography to be anyplace, so of course I suggested downtown Raleigh. With the Christmas lights out on Fayetteville St, it made for even a better opportunity to shoot some early evening, dusk and evening photos with the Raleigh high-rises providing a wonderful urban photography environment.
I must give full credit to the both of them. The wind was whipping and it was pretty cold but they were total troopers for the whole photography session. Of course, they had each other to keep warm and I did promise hot coffee afterwards, so hopefully it wasn’t too awful for them. The end result, through all the cold and wind was some beautiful engagement photography that shows their love and the beautiful downtown Raleigh cityscape.
Now onto the photos!
