Ashley & CJ’s Raleigh Engagement Photos
Ashley and CJ chose to have their Engagement Photos done at two important locations to them – the first being their very first house together! When Ashley came to me with this idea, I was all in. Not only are they celebrating their engagement and future marriage, but also their first house?! How lucky of me to be able to capture such beautiful memories.
Their second location of choice was one of their favorite parks here in Raleigh, Umstead State Park. It was a gorgeous day and we were so surprised to have the park mostly to ourselves! (That is pure luck here in Raleigh!) I loved this location because I, too, love the outdoors and nothing makes me happier than photographing near some water.
These two are true outdoor lovers, which are my favorite people to work with. Ashley and CJ met each other in DC, and continued to cross paths in both Charlotte and Raleigh. However, CJ popped the question in an epic & intimate mountain-side proposal. He got down on one knee at Rough Ridge overlooking the Blue Ridge Parkway. It only seems fitting that these two decided to get married in the mountains in October at Chestnut Ridge, just outside of Asheville in Canton, NC. Now that will be one gorgeous day, and I cannot wait!
