Emily + John | Wake Forest, North Carolina | Raleigh Engagement Photographer

Couple Portraits, Engagements

Green Hill County Park, Wake Forest, NC

Emily + John

Over the years, I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with people from all walks of life. No two couples are the same and that DEFINITELY holds true for this dream couple (see below for some true #couplegoals).

Emily and John truly personify their wedding hashtag #GoBighamOrGoHome. Never have I worked with such an energetic and silly couple! Emily is a bada$$ pole instructor and her and John both work as Civil Engineers in the Research triangle. As an outdoorsy and active couple, it only made sense to host their photoshoot at Green Hill County Park in Wake Forest, NC. Nothing compliments this already flawless couple better than vast greenery overlooking the heart of Raleigh.

They Were Absolutely Precious

Throughout this unbelievable fun session, Emily and John were cracking jokes, giggling, and overall just taking in the day and their time with one another. I feel SO incredibly lucky to have been a fly on the wall for this experience. At one point, Emily and John had me laughing so hard I had to put my camera down!

Emily said after the shoot that her favorite part was “Goofing around with good people and just having fun, enjoying life!” and if that doesn’t sum up our hour together, I don’t know what does!

Destination Wedding in Hawaii

Emily and John are set to tie the knot in Hawaii with an intimate ceremony surrounded by close family. They plan on having a larger shindig for their friends and extended family in Raleigh to celebrate their 1 year anniversary. A HUGE thank you to Emily and John for allowing me to be a part of this most exciting time in their life! <3
