A few weeks ago I met Maria, her mom Kim, and her friend Megan for a Bridal shoot. I was just in awe at how beautiful Maria looked in her dress as she turned the corner to meet me in front of the Capital Building. Maria had chosen downtown because she wanted an urban edge to her images. Well, I was so in love with the sun setting over the capital building that we didn’t quite make it to Fayetteville Street in time to capture more urban images. But I am ok with that, I love how they turned out. Since we missed that opportunity, we decided to take a break during the shoot, headed into a restaurant for a few drinks (I drank water, on the clock you know) and waited for the sun to set. Once it was dark, it was show time! I had no idea just how beautiful Raleigh is at night. Thank you Maria!
