Jessica and Matt got engaged outside…near an oak tree in a park, to be exact. So it seemed only fitting that this couple’s fall engagement session take place in…you guessed it…the great outdoors! 🙂
Jessica and Matt mentioned to me that one of their favorite places in the Raleigh area is Umstead Park, so that’s where we chose to shoot. Umstead Park is home to three (!) lakes and a bunch of trails, a perfect day getaway for an outdoorsy, fun couple like these two. I adored getting to stroll with them in a place they love so much, catching the flavor of the changing season and the turning leaves. And let me tell you, Jessica and Matt laugh hard together! Such a delight to spend time with this super-giggly twosome! They’re so comfortable with each other, so loving and capturing that in these photos was not hard to do.
I especially loved hearing from Jessica that Matt included her parents in the planning process, before he proposed. I know I’ve mentioned it before in this blog, but there’s just something so special about two families coming together and getting along. I’m so grateful that I get to witness it time and again, doing what I love to do.
Jessica and Matt, I can’t wait for your big day! And keep up that giggling! Below is a sneak peek of your engagement photos!
