Stephanie + Patric {engagement}

A few months back I met up with Stephanie and Patric at the Moses Cone Manor in Boone, NC. If you haven't been to the Manor, I highly recommend it. After a nice and scenic drive, I met the happy couple and began to walk around the grounds. If you have not met this couple, I hope you have the opportunity to at some point in life. Their love for each other and for life itself is so evident in everything they do.

This couple came prepared with several outfit choices that showed off different aspects of their personalities. We started off more dressy and sophisticated and gradually became more casual.

What I really loved about this couple is that they were not outshined by the breathtaking views of the Carolina mountains behind them. These two have such fun personalities that you are drawn to them first, and then to the gorgeous landscapes behind them. Also, how awesome are those coordinating colors?!

What I also really love about this couple is their love. No, seriously. These two were not shy about showing their love for each other in front of the camera. There were times where I posed them, but there were also a handful of moments where I was able to just naturally catch them laughing and stealing kisses when they thought I wasn't looking. It is refreshing to see a couple unashamedly showing their love and affection.

Stephanie and Patric are getting married on October 15th (eeee so soon!) in Boone, NC and I am beyond delighted to share their special day with them. I cannot even describe how beautiful of a bride this woman is going to be... luckily, in a couple weeks I'll be able to show you!
