Caroline + Patrick | Jun 27, 2020
Hazy, summertime engagement session with whimsical wildflowers at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, North Carolina
Part of the Wolfpack, Caroline and Patrick both graduated from NC State with degrees in civil engineering - making them the perfect match in more ways than one. During their whimsical engagement shoot at an art museum, he couldn’t keep his eyes off of her.
“The way he looked at her during the session was one hundred percent head over heels,” said the photographer of Caitlyn Nicole Photography.”
This couple braved the southern mid-summer humidity and trekked the grounds of an expansive art museum, resulting in the most gorgeous shots with Sahara-esque dust in the sunset. The scene was dreamlike - surrounded by the thick wooded landscape and sprays of yellow wildflowers.
Caroline actually wore the dress she had bought for her rehearsal dinner, which was a flowy, off-the-shoulder blush dress. The floral pattern matched the color palette they’d planned for their wedding party: blush and navy.
Patrick wore his wedding shoes, a short-sleeved white button down, and a pair of salmon pink slacks which tied together the couple’s ensemble effortlessly.
Out in the fields neighboring the art museum, Caroline’s long blonde hair and whimsical dress swayed gently in the breeze, while the warm, glowy sunlight streamed in through the trees.
“Caroline requested florals in the photos and the wildflowers were out in full bloom at the museum.” said the engagement photographer. “Absolutely perfect hazy summertime vibes.”
The photographer captured the couple in intimate moments against the rustic landscape, before moving inside the modern, industrial museum space. Next to a crystal-clear reflecting pool and sleek, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, the couple embraced in their dark shades like movie stars.
“Caroline only asked for one particular pose,” said the wedding photographer, “which was the two of them in their sunglasses, ‘because he just looks SOOO good in them!’"
Although they had to move their original wedding date out a whole year to May 2021, this couple made the most of it and celebrated anyway - in style!
