How to ROCK your Engagement Session - Raleigh Wedding Photographer

As a wedding photographer in Raleigh, North Carolina, I love engagement sessions so much that I actually include them in your wedding package for free if you book with me. Why? Because it’s such an amazing way to get to know each other before the wedding. We can chat, I can get to know the both of you, your story, and see how you vibe with the camera. We can try different poses. After countless engagement sessions and years of experience, I decided to give you my 5 top tips on how to ROCK your engagement photography Session!

Getting Engaged, Moving to Hawaii + Planning a Wedding - Life Update / Honululu, Hawaii Wedding Photographer

After everything that happened in the past month I thought it was time to sit down and write a blog post because god knows I suck at making videos. Also, I am stuck in a hurricane right now so why not? It's a good thing when your one year anniversary falls on a weekend, because Matt and I took it as an excuse to take a Mini Vacation to Myrtle Beach. While we usually love to see some culture crap and all, we just wanted to relax and unwind. Chill by the beach, the pool, Bahama Mamas and good sea food. Wedding Season is about to start back up for me and he was going to be gone for training until Christmas, so it seemed perfect. We had talked about our future a bunch of times, and when he found out he was going to Hawaii, he wanted to make sure that I was going to come with him. When he mentioned it to me, I was all game. Yes, I was scared to give up everything I built up but I was also ready. While I love all the things I got to experience in North Carolina, watch my business grow and meet so many great people, I knew that I needed a change and moving to paradise with the love of my life seemed like a good alternative.

Aryn + Tyler - Engagement Photography Session at the JC Raulston Arboretum - Raleigh Wedding Photographer

Absolutely adoring Aryn + Tylers Engagement Photography Session at the JC Raulston Arboretum. As a Wedding Photographer in Raleigh, North Carolina, this is one of my favorite spots in the triangle for portrait sessions - and it is right by NC State! 
What I love most about the Arboretum is that there are SO MANY different backdrops, all in one place. The desert, the tropics, an enchanted forest - not many locations offer as much variety as the arboretum does! The sweet couple is getting married next year and I can't wait for their day!
