Brian and Breanna: Engagement Session | Downtown Raleigh, North Carolina

Brian and Breanna just knew of each other since they went to the same college but they never really interacted with one another. After a few years, they crossed paths again at a friend’s wedding on the west coast and this time Brian finally took the courage and was able to get her phone number from a friend, he called her up and introduced himself and from that moment on, he got her attention, they kept in touch by phone and talked… for hours! They even played games just by talking over the phone, I thought that was pretty clever, creative and a sweet thing to do. When it’s about that time to have their first date, Brian found another creative thing for their first date considering he was living in Indiana at the time, he did some research on what they could do down here in Raleigh and I think he did a pretty good job. Online, he found a “Scavenger Hunt” Adventure, I have lived here for some years now but I never knew they did that. As we were planning for their engagement session, they have mentioned about the fun things they did on their first date so I thought photographing them around downtown would be a good start. As we were walking around the area, we went inside the Capital Building… uhm, again I have lived here for some years now and I finally saw the Capitol from the inside, luckily they have friendly government employees so we got a few great shots. Then as we started to scout around the area again, they explained to me about their “hand sign” sweet gestures to each other… these two lovebirds are just full of ‘sweet creative brain juices’! So as you go through their photos, you will see what we were able to collaborate with their creative ideas and my ‘photographic twist’, we came up with some pretty cool photos. As the day went on, we all just had a great time. Never knew Brian is a funny guy! So here are a few from their engagement session. Enjoy!
