Laura & Reid • Engagement

Wake Forest engagement session photo

As I write this blog post, I’m sitting here thinking that I cannot believe it’s June already! I did this session with Laura & Reid back at the end of April, and now they get married this weekend! It’s always crazy to me how quickly the spring goes by. Now we’re about to head into summer. It’s starting to get hot around here, and I’m missing the weather we had during Laura & Reid’s session. I met up with these two at one of our local parks, and we had the perfect breezy and sunny evening for their photos. I love this Wake Forest engagement session, and I am so excited to share these images!

We spent the evening chatting about all their wedding plans coming together — from linens, to guest count, to cocktail hour, and flowers. So, so much goes into a wedding day to make it all happen. There’s a lot of thought that goes into both the design and the logistics of a wedding day! As a wedding photographer, I often just show up to the wedding day and see everything put together and ready. So I love getting the chance to chat with my couples about how planning is coming along and how they are feeling in anticipation for the big day. Engagement photos are the perfect opportunity for this.

I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again here. Engagement photos are an amazing way to get to know your wedding photographer, especially before the big day. It’s like a warm-up so that you can get comfortable in front of the camera before it’s wedding day and you’re both all dressed up in your wedding attire. Laura & Reid — thank you for choosing me to photograph not only your Wake Forest engagement session but more importantly, your upcoming wedding day. Your Melrose wedding is just around the corner, and I am so thrilled to photograph it for you!
