Megan and Carly met at a gym when they lived in North Carolina (Carly went to UNC and Megan to NC State). They lived in Durham for a while and it still holds a special place in their hearts, so they packed up their backgammon game and adorable mugs and hauled themselves back here from Lexington, Kentucky to have their engagement session with us. We had this planned for a long time and they were already in from out of state when both Geoff and myself came down with fevers and a sickness similar to the plague, so we awkwardly waved hello at them from about 10 feet away when we first met them as to not spread the contamination. Our jokes were far more awkward and made even less sense than they usually do, and my already poor ability to give verbal instructions to my clients based on pictures in my head became even poorer, yet somehow Megan and Carly appeared to have a good time (or they’re at least humoring us).
Despite our illnesses, we still had a great time romping around the Bull City with these two. I especially enjoyed that Carly is barely 5′ tall and I did not need my step stool to photograph her. They handled all obstacles (and parking cones) in stride, and our biggest hurdle was them being cool with the new Ghostbusters remake while Geoff tried desperately to verbalize that the original Ghostbusters is a national treasure that should probably have at least a few monuments in its honor. We talked politics and dogs and they told us about their wedding and Carly wore really cute shoes while Megan made me want to cut all my hair off again.
