Romantic Raleigh Engagement Photos

Claire & Greg’s romantic Raleigh engagement photos

These two are loving and silly and completely charming. Claire & Greg are getting married this November and even though there are still a lot of details to finalize, I can tell that they are going to have a wonderful wedding. They’re clearly great for each other (I can tell from the way they good-naturedly tease like John & I do), and we had a really great afternoon capturing their love. Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session, starting with sunkissed glows at JC Raulston Arboretum:

After the arboretum, we headed downtown for some more photos and managed to snag the table they sat at during their first date at Gravy. (Highly recommend that food btw – yummmm)Downtown Raleigh Photo Locations

Our final stop was the Boylan Bridge overlooking the city’s pretty awesome skyline. Raleigh may not be the biggest, but when the golden sunset hits, it’s quite lovely.

Okay y’all, this second photo here may be one of my very favorites of all time. We do not know who that guy is, but he has fantastic photobomb timing and I’m thrilled to have captured it.Downtown Raleigh Engagement Photos Raleigh Skyline Raleigh Skyline

And as the sun sets, that’s a wrap. Gorgeouseness and fire!

Looking forward to November 🙂
