I was really excited when Billy and Carly chose the Coker Arboretum for their engagement session. I’ve wanted to shoot there a while, and I’d suggest it, and finally, it was time. A Coker Arboretum engagement session means that you get beautiful garden images, but also beautiful images around campus. And UNC has beautiful old buildings. It reminds me a bit of my own alma mater. Cal has lots of buildings from nearly every architechtural style you can think of, and UNC Chapel Hill is the same way. Both are a feast for the eyes. And I love to go and walk around the campus.
This Coker Arboretum engagement session has something for everone. Beautiful classic garden engagement session images, as well as modern fun images set against buildings and stairs. I love the arbor, and the Billy and Carly are beautiful fun couple, and I’ve loved working with them. I can’t wait for their wedding. It’s going to be a blast. I liked hearing about Carly’s first years in teaching, and hearing them talk about why they love each other. It’s one reason I love engagement sessions- we all have the chance to get to know each other a bit, I always get to hear proposal stories, lists about what they love about each other, and wedding plans. You also get to experience what it’s like being in front of a camera, and that’s never a bad thing. We talk about TV, movies, stores we shop at, who we cheer for in sports. Engagement sessions are good time. And at the end, I love delivering beautiful engagement photos. It’s a win for everyone.
