Vanessa and Jim are such a fun pair. They were laughing and smiling the entire time I was photographing them – I can already tell their wedding is going to be a full-on party! We began their engagement session at Pullen Park, which was beautiful and perfect for their session. Then we headed to the gorgeous Capitol Building in the heart of downtown Raleigh. I loved learning about them as a couple – how Jim keeps Vanessa grounded, how often Jim travels for work, how much they love to travel. I especially loved hearing about the first time they met, and they laughed about how cheesy it was that Jim gave her a business card at the end of the evening! And now? They’re inseparable! Enjoy these sweet photos of a beautiful couple.

Love love love this next shot, taken by Callie. Stunning! 

Cannot wait until October, Jim and Vanessa!
