Raleigh Engagement Photos – Lisa & Josh

Josh & Lisa’s Raleigh Engagement Session

The smiling lady you see up there was a bridesmaid in Claire & Greg’s wedding last fall. In 2020 we get to hang out with her and Josh again for their own wedding! I love when members of previous wedding parties reach out to us about their own nuptials.

For their Raleigh engagement session, we started at the Capitol building, where the leaves were deliciously crunchy, and then had a quick pit stop at their house for photos with their pup Josie, before heading on to Yates Mill Park as the sun set.

Here’s a peek at the session!

You know I love a good moonrise shot – the colors during blue hour are absolutely my favorite!



We believe that love is bright and colorful and your wedding photographs should be bright and colorful too.

Kivus & Camera are Raleigh Wedding photographers who create bold, colorful, magical memories of your wedding day with beautiful, artistic portraits AND enthusiastic, genuine moments. Your unique love story deserves to be told through unforgettable, breath-taking photographs that stand out from the crowd. Kivus & Camera love creating that magic. After all, as past bride Courtney says, we’re photography sorcerers.

Also, while we call ourselves Raleigh wedding photographers, we definitely photograph Durham weddings, Chapel Hill weddings, Cary weddings, etc. We’re all over the Triangle area, and we’re happy to head to the beach or mountains and even to places outside of North Carolina! Just let us know where your love story is headed.
