Sam and Joe are childhood friends, and Sam will be a groomsmen in their wedding. I was so happy to be able to take some engagement pictures for this sweet couple. I met Joe a couple months after Sam and I started dating, and Sara came into the picture fairly soon after that. I remember the first time I met Sara pretty vividly. I met Sara on my first trip up to Asheville to see Sam after I was gone for a summer study abroad program in London. I remember telling Sam how friendly Sara was, and I was excited that Joe had a girlfriend that was fun to hang out with. I can't believe that was 6 years ago!
Meet the gorgeous couple...
I met up with Sara and Joe the Sunday evening before I flew out of Raleigh/Durham airport for Sweden. The pictures were taken at the American Tobacco district in Durham, NC. I loved this location! We went with a more urban location since their wedding photographs will have a more scenic/nature feel to them at Martha's Vineyard.
Thank you Sara and Joe for allowing me to capture this fun and exciting time in your lives!
I also would like to wish my second Dad (father in law) a Happy Birthday today! Here he is pictured with Callie (at 2 months old). Callie will be 1 year old in 15 days, and took her first steps last night!
