Jenna and I, of course, share the same first name, but we also share AnnaLaura as a mutual friend! Do you remember AnnaLaura’s beautiful Sutherland wedding?! So thankful to her for introducing Jenna and I! I always love meeting and photographing friends of friends. Getting to document Jenna & Jonas’ engagement was such a joy, and I love how naturally these two interacted in front of my camera. You can look at these images and just feel how much fun we had together! It was a hot, hot day, but they were troopers in the heat and you can’t even tell in the pictures.
I loved this new location that Jenna & Jonas introduced to me! It was the perfect spot for their summer session. The open fields, lake, and glowy light were the epitome of summer engagement photos. Jenna went barefoot for their session, which was such a fun touch. Their pictures feel so carefree, and I can’t help but smile when I look back through these images. Is there anything that feels quite like summer more than going barefoot by the water?! Jenna & Jonas — thank you for choosing me to capture this season in your lives and in your relationship! Thanks for giving me lots of sweet moments and adorable laughs to photograph during your Raleigh engagement session! Your wedding will be here before you know it, and I’m so thrilled for you two.
