Christina & Matthew | Durham Engagement Session

I have known Christina & Matthew for a while. Matthew is a fellow wedding photographer in the Raleigh area and I was introduced to Christina at Forever Bridal’s annual wedding show at the Fairgrounds.

I will never forget the day I first met Christina. It was at the end of the wedding show and they were walking hand in hand down the aisle, while everyone was tearing down. I was with a group of friends when Matthew introduces her to the group. “Hi, I would like to introduce you to my friend Christina,” Matthew said. While everyone was saying hi, I said “So, Matthew, you’re holding hands, walking down the aisle together and she is only your friend?” I love Matthew and I just had to put him on the spot.

Flash forward. So, when I got the phone call that they needed a photographer for their wedding, I was honored. We are only at the engagement session, but I absolutely love this couple. We started off at the mall to shoot images at one of their favorite hangouts, Barnes & Noble.

They then had a wardrobe change and we headed to downtown Durham for something a little urban. Wow! We had great light, weather and every image flowed from one area to another. The images below are just some of the ones I loved from the session, but there a whole lot more.

I left the session loving life a little bit more. Thank you Christina & Matthew for the gift you gave me (Christobal) that day. You are both amazing!
