I love everything about this shoot. It didn’t even feel like work, just a fun afternoon wandering around downtown Raleigh with a couple so comfortable in front of the camera and so in love. Lindsey and Doug are getting married next year at the Barn at Valhalla so when we were brainstorming about their engagement shoot they decided that since their wedding was going to have a more rustic feel they’d like to go for something a little more urban. This was super exciting for me because while I’ve shot tons of weddings in downtown Raleigh this was my first entirely downtown-Raleigh engagement shoot. If you’re a UNC alum or have lived in the Chapel Hill area for awhile I think you’ll understand what I mean when I say that even though Raleigh is relatively close it feels like a whole other foreign world. In fact, I’m a little ashamed to admit that I don’t think I actually went to Raleigh for the first time until my senior year at UNC. Needless to say a beautiful evening in downtown Raleigh is a playground for a photographer and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to shoot. Lindsey and Doug have an intense connection that pours through these images and makes me even more excited about their wedding next year. Thanks for having complete trust in me when I talk excitedly about tree shadows and ask you to run out and stand or sit in the middle of a busy road a million times. =)
