Jenna and Drew’s Durham engagement session was completely magical and everything I (and they could have wished for!) When I met with both of them back in November and talked about their wedding, we did talk about possible locations for their engagement sessions. They both mentioned that they would love to have a session in the snow. I told them it does snow here in the south about once a year so if we were lucky, they might get their wish. It did snow and they (and I) got their wish!
The 3 of us traipsed all over Duke gardens taking advantage of the beauty of the snow. I’ve photographed my kids in the snow but never had the pleasure of photographing a couple. It was so much fun. Every turn of the path we found a new little nook to photograph. When Drew pulled out a gorgeous fur blanket for him and Jenna to cuddle underneath, I might have mumbled, “Be still my beating heart” under my breath. It was absolutely stunning!!!!
I’m not sure what Jenna and Drew expected with their engagement session but I know I had fun. We laughed and giggled for almost 3 hours straight. But I can tell you they were the most comfortable couple I’ve ever photographed. There was an ease and peace about the two of them. They melted into each other and both just looked completely content and relaxed.
Thank you again Jenna and Drew for trusting me to document your wedding day! I cannot wait to see the beauty that awaits.
