Meghan & Ryan || A Northgate Park Engagement

Meghan and Ryan had their first date in Northgate Park, five years ago. We did the first photos of their session on "their bench," where they kept going even after that first date to sit and talk and get to know one another. They are so sunshine-y and adorable, and clearly love nothing more than cuddling up with one another and having a little goofy fun. I am excited for their winter wedding next January, and psyched to share their beautiful engagement photos with you. Check them out below! (More on Facebook.)

Erika's Disney Princess Bridal Shower || Las Vegas Bridal Shower

My sister is getting married! In honor of her upcoming nuptials, and because she loves Disney so much, I had the pleasure of hosting a Disney Princess-themed bridal shower for her. There were Disney Princess cupcakes, a mimosa bar, many adorable hors d'oeuvres, each guest wore a little token for her favorite Disney Princess, and Princess Aurora herself made an appearance! Congratulations to my little sister! (More on Facebook.)

Lauren & Graham || A Wake Forest Engagement

Lauren and Graham started dating in high school. When Graham graduated (two years before Lauren would) and enlisted in the Navy, they broke up. Graham went to Japan; Lauren became a nurse. A few years later, they found each other again, got back together, and later this year, they're getting married. It's one of my favorite kinds of love stories: one that takes a little time to develop, but culminates in a very happy ending.

Since their relationship started in Wake Forest, where they both grew up, it made perfect sense for us to go back there for their engagement session. Graham and Lauren are so naturally affectionate with one another that Michael and I hardly had to give them any direction--and I'm sure it helped them to cuddle up against the February wind and cold. The resulting images are just as adorable as Lauren and Graham are themselves. Check them out below! (More on Facebook.)
