Brock + Carli’s Chapel Hill Engagement Session

Brock + Carli’s Merritt’s Pasture Engagement

Chapel Hill, NC

We are so excited for Brock + Carli’s fall wedding at Carlee Farm! To kick their wedding experience off we spent Saturday morning making the most beautiful photos of them. We took them out to one of our favorite spots in North Carolina, Merritt’s Pasture in Chapel Hill, for their engagement session. Seriously the dreamiest spot ever! All the rolling pastures and pretty grass you could ever want.

This was our very first ever sunrise session, we’ve literally NEVER had anyone willing to take us up on getting up so early on a Saturday and we can now officially say it was awesome! To any other photographers wanting to give it a go, make sure to wake up early for your coffee time! 

We had the entire pasture to ourselves (aside from a few doggos and their humans) and all the stunning morning light we could ask for. Add in one incredibly sweet and fun couple and BOOM, magic! 

The four of us spent the morning chatting, enjoying the scenery, and making so many great photos come to life for them. Spring decided to come a little early to North Carolina this year so we had some lovely greenery and even a few flowers. Considering we had snow just 4 weeks go, we’re calling this one a miracle! We were even able to nab a photo of Carli’s engagement ring on one of the yellow wildflowers we found. Peep that ring ya’ll, it’s stunning! Good job Brock 😉

We love that they had a custom sign made with their wedding date and soon to be shared last name. Such a great idea and made for so many sweet images. 

They did amazing job and completely rocked their session! We can’t wait to shoot their wedding this fall. Check out some of what we captured below!

    Oh my, what beautiful pictures. You did a wonderful job, but of course, you had a beautiful couple to work with. We might be a little proud as we are Carli’s Nana and Pap. Thank you for making it so special. 💕
