Brooke + Nick
Welcome to the engagement session of Brooke and Nick - the couple that I almost turned down, but decided my schedule could squeeze them in. When I say "almost turned down" I mean that my calendar was already full and I didn't think I could take on anymore - but, after two seconds of getting to know them and hearing about their wedding plans I very quickly changed my mind.
I met Brooke and Nick at a local coffee shop in Raleigh, NC where we grabbed a coffee and took some cozy photos. The coffee shop had the yummiest drinks and they were incredibly kind to let us crash for half of their session. If you're ever in Raleigh, you should absolutely check our the Iris Coffee Lab. I highly recommend the vanilla latte or, if you're feeling a little adventurous, the blue matcha latte - it's like drinking the milk from a bowl of Lucky Charms!
After the coffee shop, we went to the city market. It was a Sunday, so everything was closed, but that was perfect for us! It gave us the opportunity to literally dance in the streets without stressing about a bunch of traffic. We had a quick outfit change and embraced the new scenery of cobblestone streets and old brick buildings. It was fun and romantic - just what we needed to round out their session.
Brooke and Nick are big donut lovers so we finished their session sitting on the curb and enjoying some yummy donuts they brought with them. It was the perfect touch to make their gallery even more representative of their special connection.
The sweetest couple. The sweetest day. I cannot wait for their wedding on June 24, 2022!
