Lauren + Drew are engaged! | Cardinal Club, JC Raulston Arboretum Raleigh engagement photographer
I know I say this every time I put up a blog post, but O-M-G, I LOVE these photos! Lauren and Drew are getting married this fall in Raleigh and will be holding their wedding reception at the Cardinal Club downtown, so where better to start off their engagement session? (Yes, we absolutely do travel all over NC and beyond!!). What I loved most about this session was witnessing Drew's effortless ability to make Lauren laugh. Even when I wanted them to give me some serious romantic facial expressions, he was whispering SOMETHING in her ear to crack her up! The truth is that laughter IS romantic because it's real. This is what I adore about photographing couples in love. Their true and genuine interactions are going to take hold of their photos no matter what I say or do. I can give a little bit of direction, but ultimately the natural flow of expression between them pushes me away so that I am just a fly on the wall of THEIR moment. I love observing how that unfolds in front of me. Victor and I had a blast spending the afternoon with Lauren + Drew for and hope you enjoy these images...
We flew out west for the next few shots.....just kidding! It surely doesn't look like a Carolina scene, but actually it's the JC Raulston Arboretum at NC State. AMAZING place for a session like this!
P.S. I ADORE Lauren's dresses and her SHOES. Seriously, super cute. I need to ask her where she got them. :)
