JC Raulston Arboretum Engagement Session | Raleigh, NC Wedding Photographer | Ryan & Rebecca


Ryan and Rebecca are engaged!! They picked the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC for their Engagement Session and it was the most beautiful location with the perfect weather. We sure had a lot of fun during their engagement session. These two are getting married at The Historic Wakefield Barn in March 2020, and I couldn’t be more grateful to be their wedding photographer. They are so excited to become husband and wife that their love and happiness just radiate!! Also, Ryan is really good at making Becca laugh, so the result was way too many gorgeous photos to choose from. (The kind of problem I like to have!)

Ryan and Rebecca went to UNC for college in fall 2008 when Facebook was becoming a huge deal for college aged kids to meet new people before going to school. They have the same exact birthday, February 13th, so they used to tell each other happy birthday virtually.

Unknowingly, they had many mutual friends, but never hung out in college. One of Rebecca’s best friends moved to D.C. after college and so did Ryan. Fast forward a couple of years, that same friend was visiting Rebecca in Raleigh and Ryan happened to have moved back to NC. She invited Ryan to go downtown with them and that's how they were formally introduced. Talk about the right timing!! It took them years to meet in person! But they hit if off and have been together ever since!

Ryan proposed at the top of the Wells Fargo building at City Club where he took Rebecca on their first dinner date. And when they got home that night, Rebecca was surprised with an Engagement Party that Ryan planned with friends and family. How sweet was that??

Becca and Ryan, I am over the moon excited to be your wedding photographer. I can’t wait to meet all your friends and family and capture the beautiful celebration of your marriage. Your engagement session at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC is one of my favorites ever and I can’t wait to click “send” on your full gallery very soon! Thank you for allowing me to be part of this time of your lives.

Lots of love,
