Downtown Raleigh Engagement Session : Michelle + CJ

Downtown Raleigh is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to walk around and photograph - the buildings, movement, and simultaneous feeling of roots and newness make me happy. For CJ and Michelle's engagement shoot, we just walked downtown and stopped wherever the light or location struck our fancy. Getting to enjoy their companionship was one of my favorite parts of the shoot! From going through the NC Museum of Science (and checking out a decomposing experiment together), riding a tiny vintage elevator to what ended up being a dead-end, to taking romantic photos in a busy parking lot, these guys were friends up for anything.

Because when you find a blooming tree in the middle of January, you take pictures under it. Even if it's in the middle of a parking lot.
