When Christina and Cody said they pictured a Downtown Raleigh Engagement Session, I was all in! They are the type of people that show up to a session and you just know it’s going to be a fun time. They were super laid back and had great energy, despite it being North Carolina’s first truly chilly day! Not to mention they nailed their outfit choices, which is like Christmas Day to photographers!
We started off at the Capitol Building in Downtown Raleigh for a romantic, intimate time with sweet kisses and snuggles. Lots of laughs and piggy-back rides followed at Dorthea Dix Park. What I loved most was when they brought me to the same spot where Cody proposed to Christina! This was one of my favorite Engagement Sessions of the fall season so I can only assume their wedding at Cross + Main next year will be even more fun!
Christina and Cody,
As you go through this next year of wedding planning here is my advice to you: Remember you’re planning for a marriage too, not just a wedding. Don’t put too much stress on this one day, but instead keep growing as a couple and find new ways to bring each other joy. Remember wedding planning can become hectic only if you let it, so don’t sweat the small stuff. Just focus on what is truly important–the fact that you get to marry your very best friend!
Here’s to some amazing times ahead!
