NC Museum of Art Spring engagement photos – Nguyet and Allen
Nguyet and Allen share a romantic moment under the Gyre in Museum Park
The NC Museum of Art in Raleigh is on my list of places I’ve been meaning to visit but just never have. So, I was really happy when Nguyet and Allen suggested the museum for engagement photos. Allen proposed to Nguyet in Museum Park, so of course it is special to them. It’s always great when a couple chooses a special location for engagement photos; I think the pictures mean so much more to them that way.
I usually like to do late afternoon portrait sessions; I just think the light is so much better at that time of day for natural light photography. However, we shot these pictures mid-morning, and I think the strong light ended up making some very dramatic photos. Nguyet and Allen were very relaxed and joking around, which always makes the pictures easy and fun. I can’t wait to get back to the NC Museum of Art for more photos, and I’m looking forward to Nguyet’s and Allen’s wedding in September.
This metal tree sculpture is pretty neat
The light coming from these walls was awesome!
Nguyet, you look gorgeous
Looking good, Allen
Looks like these two like each other
You two have such a great connection
The light from the walls in this alcove makes them look great
Love these aluminum walls on the outside of the museum
Love the space in this photo
One of my favorites; these guys were so fun to work with
He can't take his eyes off you, Nguyet
The reflecting pond was really neat; made for a fun picture
The bamboo and sculptures in this courtyard were really cool
Love all the elements of this photo
These black modern art monoliths gave nice light from one side and nice reflections from the other
This is where Allen proposed; a little re-enactment of the moment
The lines and the soft light filtering through made this a neat photo
I thought the pattern shooting through the pavilion walls made for a neat effect
I love when couples get so used to me being around, the pictures look like I wasn't even there. This is one of those moments
The Gyre gives a neat sensation of motion when viewed a certain way
Such a wonderful couple
Literally the last photo. The wind picked up and great this fun windblown moment
