Sarah and Dustin are the best type of people. They like card games and video games and pie picnics, but most importantly, they can weather an extremely rainy engagement session without so much as blinking an eye. The weather is so unpredictable in North Carolina in the summer, and we had already rescheduled once due to rain. The forecast for their particular day was about evenly split, but toward the evening it was down to almost a zero percent chance, and nothing on the radar. Of course, because of this, it rained literally the entire time. For no reason. The radar still said it was clear, and the forecast still said it was not supposed to be raining. It did not let up. It was primarily a constant mist, but it did become heavier on occasion, but despite all this, they did not complain once, and were some of the happiest clients I’ve had, rain or shine! They met in the Archives while attending school, and are getting married later this year on Dustin’s family’s land in Tennessee. They’re excited to later bring Sarah’s dog Moses into the mix (who’s currently living with her family in New Mexico) and vow to continue to remain united over their love of desserts. I’m super happy to have done their engagement session, and can’t wait to see what life has in store for them in future. Congrats, Sarah and Dustin!
We tend to be shooting in Raleigh a lot because that’s where most of our clients hail from, so we love, love, love to get the chance to photograph sessions in Durham! It’s a little weird. And a little edgy. And it’s our home, and we love it. So we were happy to get an inquiry from Ashley and Josh who wanted to come explore the Dirty D with us. :)
These two are getting married in Indiana next year (they’re both from there and have known each other since elementary school). Work brought them both down here and they’re lucky enough to work for the same company doing science things (yay for carpooling!). They have cats with science names (Andromeda and Io) and both really love Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, and other super sciencey science things. Needless to say, we liked them a whole lot even if Carolyn had a hard time understanding their actual occupations (Carolyn, while extremely competent in choir, English, drama, and mock trial… is decidedly bad at science, math, and anything involving numbers, equations, measurements or, in reality, anything that’s useful). We wish Ashley and Josh the best time ever getting married up north in 2014!
