WRAL Azalea Gardens Engagement

Raleigh, North Carolina


Devon + Rachel

It is my favorite time of year in North Carolina, SPRING!!  We’ve waited long enough for it to finally come around this year.  There is absolutely nothing better than a beautiful spring morning, just the perfect time for an engagement session.  While searching for a place to shoot I came across the WRAL Azalea Gardens, this gorgeous green space right in the thick of Raleigh.  What a refreshing meticulously maintained oasis in the city.  As an added bonus the azaleas were in peak bloom for our session.  

This couple holds a very special place in our lives, Devon is a longtime best friend and we just couldn’t be happier that he found the one!  Rachel is such a fun person who compliments Devon so well, we are so excited for their wedding.  Can we all just take a moment to appreciate her stunning Classique Creations engagement ring from Diamonds Direct.  As you can imagine this was a very special session for us, being included in these big moments is such an honor.  We wandered the gardens, cracked some stupid jokes, and snapped some beautiful photos.  Couldn’t ask for a better time.  Oh yeah we also stuffed our faces at Big Ed’s afterwards sooo pretty perfect day!  (not pictured: my ridiculously large plate of french toast smothered in syrup)

Check out Devon + Rachel’s classic southern engagement session below!
