I am so happy a mutual friend connected me with Katie and Erik. They are such a fun couple, and so obviously in love. They are both dedicated to their work for a non-profit at UNC and have really busy schedules, so I’m glad they were able to take a few hours for themselves to enjoy each other and celebrate their engagement.
After ominous weather threatened our shoot twice, we finally lucked out and got a perfect North Carolina afternoon for this shoot. Erik proposed to Katie in the Tobacco District in downtown Durham (and had a friend secretly take video of the whole thing – highly recommend for guys out there planning to pop the question!), so it was fitting that we wandered around downtown for this shoot. So much more to come from these two with their wedding coming up early next month and Katie’s stunning bridal portraits, which I’m having a really hard time keeping a secret until after the wedding. =)
