We sure do have fun during engagement sessions. From meeting the couple’s puppies, to getting on boats and floating to the middle of Lake Gaston, to touring downtown Raleigh finding the perfect spots.

All of our les atkins Photography wedding packages include a free engagement session. It’s our way of getting to know our couples and spending a little time with them before their big day.

Here are a few of our favorites from recent months.

We met Ashley & Eric over a year ago at another wedding. They said they knew right away they wanted us to be their wedding photographer. (We tend to have fun at weddings!)

Ashley & Eric had a perfect day for their fall themed wedding at Weldon Baptist and reception at Chockoyotte Country Club. The day started with a “first look”. (Not sure where the tradition of not seeing the bride before the wedding came from, but it sure made for calmed nerves and plenty of time to get special moments between the two.)

Their reception didn’t disappoint either. They carried their fall theme and even included a carved pumpkin that looked just like their dog. Most importantly they were surrounded by family and friends who danced the night away and a mini concert by two of their friends Holly & Cam. We all had a blast!

We wish Ashley & Eric many happy years together. Thanks again for choosing les atkins Photography!

Victoria and Phillip’s wedding at the Garden on Millbrook in Raleigh was all about them. When we first met, they said they wanted their wedding to be about them and their family. Their day was unique and special in every way…from the notes to each other before their wedding to the doves that circled over during their ceremony.

It was a pleasure being part of their wedding day. We wish them many years of joy!

Rose Hill Weddings are always spectacular! The venue is one of my favorites. Torrential downpours the week before the wedding threatened to run Katie and Josh’s day, but they refused to allow a little rain to dampen their spirits.

Following them being pronounced husband and wife, the sun came out for the first time in 8 days. We rushed outside to get a few images of them and their wedding party before dancing the night away.

Brides worry all the time about rain “ruining” their day. In the grand scheme of things, weddings are about the couple and Josh and Katie surely didn’t let a little rain dampen their day.

We wish them many happy years together!

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding weekend in Charleston, SC with Brittany & Tanner in September. Charleston is a photographer’s paradise! The groom graduated from The Citadel, so it was only fitting they get married at the historic Summerall Chapel.

From beginning to end, their day was magical…complete with an evening of dancing and celebrating at the Legend Oaks Country Club.

We wish them many happy years together!
