Penny and John, Raleigh engagement session

Penny and John don’t live in the Raleigh area, so I offered a few different location options for their engagement session. After seeing photos of the spillway at Lassiter Mill Park in north Raleigh, Penny knew she had her location. The day of the shoot threw us a ¬†few obstacles — from roving bands of thunderstorms to unseasonably hot and humid 90-degree temperatures — but the combination of cool location and fun couple made for some great pictures.
