NC Museum of Art Engagement Photos

When Ashton and Nick reached out to me looking for a wedding photographer I was so excited! A family friend recommended me to them after I photographed their family in the fall. I am so glad that she reached out because if their engagement session is any indication – their wedding and their marriage are going to be INCREDIBLE. After reviewing some of the best engagement photo session locations in Raleigh we settled on an NC Museum of Art Engagement! My excitement over these is palpable as this was my first engagement session at the NC Museum of Art Park!

The NC Museum of Art Park is expansive and gorgeous. It also holds some sentimental value to Ashton and Nick! They have had the opportunity to explore the park before on their runs together. I loved hearing about all the things they love to do together – including running! They just completed their first half marathon together and Nick proposed during a regularly scheduled run/hike! He totally caught Ashton by surprise!

The glow in this session is unreal – it really highlights Ashton and Nick’s excitement and infectiously joyous personalities. After a little exploring we scored an awesome spot near a glowy willow tree and I am so obsessed with them! It may be allergy season but the life-giving sunshine of this session really makes it all worthwhile. I especially love how they each coordinated their outfits and how they really shined among the backdrop of the NC Museum of Art park – the variety in their gallery is stunning!

It was so fun getting to know Ashton and Nick – and I am doubly excited for their November 2023 wedding at Lavender Oaks in Chapel Hill! Ashton and Nick have some seriously amazing plans up their sleeve and I cannot wait to show you all the amazing details to come!
