Hey there!

A Sunny Duke Gardens Engagement

Candace + Jacob | Duke Gardens | Durham, NC| North Carolina Based Wedding Photographer

When Candace told me she wanted to include her dog in the engagement session, I was so excited! I absolutely LOVE dogs. And when she told me she wanted to go to Duke Gardens for their engagement session, I was almost more excited!

The weather was perfect, their dog, Leila, was absolutely adorable, and Candace and Jacob were just too cute together. We laughed, we pulled sweet Leila out of the bushes while she tried to catch squirrels, and omg did we walk! (Duke Gardens is so much bigger than any of us thought).

At the end of the day we all had a workout, but there are some pretty cute pics to show for it! So without further ado, here are Candace and Jacob’s engagement pictures in Duke Gardens!
