Gwen and Nick! What a good time it was to see both of them again and finnaallyy get to photograph their engagement pictures! We all knew it was coming soon. :) Gwen was a teaching buddy of mine when I taught elementary school and we have very thankfully kept in touch over the years. She did some modeling for me back when I got my very first softbox and was practicing off-camera lighting. ;) After I stopped teaching, a few of the girls and I kept in touch, and I attended a party at one of their houses. I was informed that Gwen would be late because she was “out with Nick.” Nick? Who’s Nick? :)
When Gwen arrived later (with Nick), I could immediately see how enamored the both of them were with each other and what a genuinely sweet person he is. I liked him immediately and found them to be a perfect match (both very kind, even-tempered people who would do anything for you). Over time, it was great to see them share so many moments together and even greater when they got engaged. I’m thankful for their friendship and so excited to be photographing their December wedding… not just because I adore them, but also because they’re having a cheesecake bar and a Cheerwine toast. ;)
Here’s a few highlights from their engagement session on the evening that Hurricane Irene rolled into the Triangle. Taken at West Point on the Eno and downtown Durham.
Congratulations, Gwen and Nick! Geoff and I are definitely looking forward to sharing your wedding with you in December. :)
