Megan and Candler will be getting married this October in Carolina Beach (I cannot wait for this wedding!), so for their engagement session they wanted something that felt a little different from the beach destination wedding but reflected their love of gorgeous outdoor settings. They chose to do the session at Gregory Vineyards in Angier, which is a lovely little vineyard just 30 mins south of Raleigh. The vineyard is just beautiful and makes some tasty wine (yes I did sneak a taste and definitely recommend their wine slushies).
Megan and Candler meet as babies and are obviously childhood friends. Their chemistry is relaxed and hanging out looking cute is completely effortless - always a fun thing to photograph. I had a great time getting to know them a little better and exploring the vineyard. Luckily, the rain held off so we were able to shoot till sunset.
They love to travel (hence the destination wedding) and ride their bikes on adventures around town, so they brought their bikes along and we took some adorable bike shots. I also discovered that Candler can ride his bike backwards - a totally awesome talent.
Enjoy some of my favorites from their e-session below and check back in October for their wedding shots!
