Late fall magic and love in full bloom – that’s the vibe Nat and Chris brought to their engagement session at the WRAL Azalea Gardens in Raleigh, NC. Despite the day threatening a bit of gloominess, we ended up with the most fantastic glowy fall morning.
Let’s talk about a love story that’s straight out of a rom-com. Nat and Chris bumped into each other’s lives in 2012 in Japan, where Chris, a Navy hero, was stationed. After a brief two months, Chris had to wave goodbye, but the friendship lingered. Now just two years ago, the universe conspired to bring them back together. January 2023 saw them back in Japan, not just for a visit but for a milestone. In the place where it all began, Chris popped the question, sealing their fate amidst the beauty of the land that witnessed their journey.
As a Raleigh wedding photographer, moments like Nat and Chris’s engagement session are what I live for. The WRAL Azalea Gardens provided the perfect canvas for their love to shine. Against the fall backdrop, they shared laughs, looks, and all the good stuff that makes their love story uniquely theirs.
Nat and Chris, being part of your journey is a genuine privilege. Your engagement session was just a teaser of the love that’s to come on your upcoming wedding day at Woodside Farms. It’s going to be a blast – filled with joy, laughter, and the beginning of your forever. Here’s to your love, the kind that keeps getting better!
