Oh friends, it’s my favorite time of year again! That’s right, engagement season! The flowers are blooming, it’s not freezing (all the time), and I get to play with amazing couples and beautiful light! We spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon & evening with Jacki & Kris in Raleigh for their engagement session.
We started at the NC Museum of Art with Jacki, Kris, Toby, & Pablo! Could these pups be any cuter? It was amazing finally meeting all four members of this sweet family in person. Jacki & Kris booked us via a Facetime conversation – the next best thing to meeting in person – and we’ve been social media friends ever since. So meeting Toby & Pablo was almost as exciting as meeting Jacki & Kris!
Once we got Jacki & Kris alone, we were able to wander the outside of the NC Art Museum and find some seriously cool spots. It was the perfect blend of art, architecture, color, and light. I was a kid in a candy shop with all of the fun spots we found on the grounds!
As the sun got lower in the sky we decided to make our way to the Haymaker in downtown Raleigh. This bar is filled with all sorts of classic vintage elements. Think 1930’s meets hipster. Throw in a beautiful floral wall as a backdrop and you’ve got yourself a trigger happy Mabyn!
After a couple of cocktails, we then went adventuring through downtown Raleigh. Where ever the light danced along the buildings and ally ways we took pictures. Raleigh has some seriously beautiful architectural elements, murals, and bright vibrant colors. It’s a beautiful city.
1 – getting to know Jacki & Kris better and seeing their genuine love for each other – These two are amazing ya’ll!
2 – finding out that Jacki & I are practically the same person – clumsiness and all. 😉
3 – watching Jacki & Kris go from nervous to confident that they were rocking their engagement session! – Especially when Jacki learned to dip! Yeah girl!
Thank you Jacki & Kris for a fantastic afternoon & evening. We cannot wait for your wedding day! Why is December so far away?!
