UNC fans, get ready. This engagement session is going to make you swoon! I met Leah and Austen on the big, beautiful, empty stadium at the University of Chapel Hill. It was so much fun capturing them at their favorite place on earth. I personally love an empty stadium – you can almost hear the fans cheering as we were walking through the seats, exploring. (I especially loved this session because my Dad played as quarterback at UNC when he was there in college!)

Leah and Austen were so much fun. They kindly showed me the inside scoop of campus, a personal tour that only alumni would know :]. They were so kind, they laughed a lot, and they are completely in love. My favorite kind of engagement session!  L & A …. I cannot wait for your beautiful wedding.

PS. For all you UNC fans who want to do a similar engagement session, be sure you have permission to be on the field! Thankfully we did, but I would not recommend “asking forgiveness.” They run a tight ship!
