Jessie and Doug’s engagement session definitely goes in my top 3 most fun sessions ever.  I always appreciate a couple who puts a lot of thought and creative ideas into their session, so when they told me they wanted their session first at their newly bought home, then at the State Fair, I knew it was going to be perfect.

When they opened the door to their adorable home, I fell in love.  Jessie’s decorating style is so adorable!  I loved every bit of her home decor, and when we began talking about our obsessions with getting good deals, I knew we were going to become good friends. She and I both love finding deals on Craigslist, Etsy, and at antique stores, and the dress she wore was purchased from a vintage Etsy designer.  I hope you enjoy these sweet engagement photos as much as I do!

I love how Doug and Jessie had to have some photos of their pups included.  These dogs were so much fun, and I could tell how much they loved them.

One of my favorites :

Can you believe this swoon-worthy light? It was so dreamy!

After spending time at their sweet home, we headed to our adventure at the NC State Fair. It was the perfect night! Not too crowded, a beautiful sky, and LOTS of fair food.  Doug was quite impressive with how much he ate!

Below : Doug almost threw out his shoulder playing this game.  It was awesome.

We of course couldn’t pass up the Ferris Wheel, and Jessie was a trooper!  She was not so fond of heights, so she clung to Doug the entire time. It was pretty adorable.

The fun house was SO fun.  A little crazy, but definitely fun.  I must say I was a little nervous carrying all my camera equipment on moving stairs and sidewalks, but the pictures were worth it.

Thank you Doug & Jessie for an incredible engagement session and a fun evening.  I cannot wait for your wedding next year!
