Hey there!

Engagement session at JC Raulston Arboretum

Josh + Oriana | JC Raulston Arboretum Engagement Session| Raleigh, NC| North Carolina Based Wedding Photographer

Originally this engagement session was going to have a totally different vibe. We were aiming for a total city look in downtown Raleigh NC. However, the City of Raleigh had a different idea.

When we got downtown there were people everywhere because there was a block party! So a quick change in location was necessary and we ended up going to the JC Raulston Arboretum.

As much as I love city sessions (you can check out my NYC one here) I am an absolute sucker for gardens! Josh and Oriana were amazing and were up for so many fun and creative poses! They even had a few they wanted to try out!

Overall even with the crowds and last minute change in location, this engagement session is definitely one of my favorites!
