North Carolina Engagement Photos by AO&JO Photography
Beautiful light, blooming flowers and a city skyline are the ingredients for an AHHHH-MAAZING engagement session. We met up with Zach and Rachael at the WRAL Azalea Gardens in Raleigh for the first part of their engagement session. We were a week or two too early for the azaleas to be in full bloom, but the beautiful spring-like weather we had had the past couple weeks had enough flowers in bloom to make the gardens still look great and definitly worth shooting. Once the sun began to set we headed towards downtown to catch some great sunset pictures with the Raleigh skyline. Dorothea Dix and Boylan Bridge are two of favorite spots to get great views of Raleigh.
We had such a great time with Rachael and Zach and can't wait for their October wedding at the Preston Woodall House in Benson. To read more about this adorable couple and see more of their gorgeous shoot keep reading.
In their free time Rachael and Zach love spending time with their adorable daughter McKenna, going on walks (maybe through a beautiful azalea garden) and cheering on their favorite hockey team the Carolina Hurricanes.
How did the two of you meet?
My best friend went to high school with Zach and she introduced us to each other!
