I had the opportunity to photograph Monet and Nathan this spring and their session was so perfect with the spring blooms! They chose UNC Chapel Hill Coker Arboretum as their engagement session location. This sweet engagement session was so much fun to capture and I’m thrilled to be sharing these images with you all!

Coker Arboretum on the UNC Campus is stunning.  I have been many times in the fall, but this was my first time doing spring engagement photos there. It was the perfect day. The weather was just perfect. There are flat light smooth grit and brick walking paths, wildflowers, and spring bloom trees in this 5-acre garden on the UNC campus. There are several open lawns and shaded benches making it a good location for a photoshoot. Coker Arboretum’s address is 399 E Cameron Ave, Chapel Hill, NC 27514 on the corner of Cameron Avenue and Raleigh Street. There is street parking along Raleigh Street. 

I had so much fun with Monet and Nathan! They had been engaged for a little while and almost didn’t get engagement photos. They decided a month before their Orange County Courthouse wedding that they might regret not getting some. They did some formal engagement photo poses but also some laid-back, candid, and fun photos! I was so excited to photograph this sweet couple! They picked the perfect engagement photo outfits. 

I was so excited to help them capture such sweet moments with one another before their wedding. The photos were gorgeous. They wanted to keep most of them private but picked a few to let me share. I love this location, it has so much to offer! It’s pretty at any time of year and it was perfect for what Monet and Nathan were looking for!
