Downtown Raleigh Engagement Session | Adhitya + Jessica

Future bride and groom

It was just a few months ago that I met Adhitya + Jessica here at our residential studio. Adhi and I geeked out a little, discussing things like storage solutions (he’s an expert on the matter) and camera gear. I found myself having to make a conscious effort to remain focused on the topic at … Read more

UNC Chapel Hill Engagement Session | Fabian + Tacoya

Black Wedding Photographer

An engagement session is likely the first professional photos a couple will have of each other. For some, it can cause some anxiety, while others look forward to their session with excitement. I approach the engagement session (and weddings as well) knowing that my couples look to me to help them along the way. My … Read more

Ritz Carlton Uptown Charlotte engagement session

This is the uptown Charlotte engagement session that almost didn’t happen. Leading up to the day, we discussed two locations uptown. The first was the Carolina Panthers Bank of America Stadium. The second was the Ritz Carlton Charlotte. The intent was to photograph in or around these two iconic locations. But storm clouds almost forced … Read more

Leslie Alford Mims House Engagement Session | Jason + Cherisse

Leslie Alfred Mims House Engagement Photo

I absolutely enjoyed working with Jason + Cherisse in planning and executing their Mims House engagement session. Initially we were targeting an outdoor location, but we made a location change based on weather forecast a few days prior. Jason + Cherisse, like many of my clients, aren’t local to the Raleigh area. Therefore the advance planning … Read more

Engagement Photos in Durham | Patrick + Crystal

Engagement photos in Durham

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to capture engagement photos in Durham for Patrick + Crystal. Often these portrait sessions have a mixture of ‘getting to know you’ under currents. I’m typically trying to learn as much as I can about the couple in preparation for photographing their wedding day. In turn, the couple is often feeling their way through being photographed professionally as a couple. Sometimes they are dealing with that slightly nervous feeling you get when someone is watching you, but only this time you know exactly who it is. Well, this time it was a little bit different. You see, I went into this session knowing that I couldn’t photograph their wedding day. I was already booked for the date they shared with me. Even though I wasn’t available for their wedding day, they still asked if I’d photograph their engagement session. We moved quickly because this was a mini session. During our time, I learned that they had moved their wedding date after they originally contacted me, but I was just finding out about it. We were having a great time, with wonderful chemistry. Yet inside I’m trying to recall if I was already booked for their new date. However that didn’t matter much because they had already secured a different photographer. In addition to some personality reflective styled images, I left wondering how did I let the opportunity to photograph the wedding of this awesome couple slip by me. Well, I do have a few fun images from their session to share with you. And after you have a glance at this, be sure to see Crystal’s Duke Chapel bridal portraits we captured as well.

Engagement Photos in Durham

Share with us how you two met:
Patrick and I met in college in 2008. We both were members of a thriving student organization on campus which we were both passionate about. He was the president at the time and therefore was very busy and well known across the campus. We has seen each other in passing on occasion, but never spoke to one another. Spring of 2008, a mutual friend had a passing in his family and we both planned to attend the funeral. As president, Patrick organized a carpool to take a few members, me being on of them. After a long drive back which consisted of bonding and talking, I insisted that he text me to ensure that he arrived home safe. Ever since then, the text messages never stopped! Our friendship suddenly grew into a more serious state. June 2008, we made it official and we dated for six years!

Marry Me Scones | Josh + Natalie

I love when clients have unique photo session ideas!  So when Natalie shared her idea to have their engagement session at her new home with Josh, I was elated.  A cooking session has its rewards!  When I arrived they were ready to go.  Natalie donned her apron, the food was prepped with the butter at the perfect temperature.  They were ready to make Josh’s kryptonite, the Marry Me Scone!  Legend has it that it was this very recipe that lead Josh on bended knee.Engagement Photos Marry Me Scones (1)
