NoDa Engagement Session | Ruth + Blair

I had SO MUCH FUN with Blair and Ruth for their engagement session. I honestly can't believe it has came and went already.. this year is just flying by! Back in April, I got an email from Blair stating that he wanted to do something very special for Ruth. You see, Ruth is a lover of pictures (I can obviously relate ;)), so Blair decided that he wanted to have his proposal to her captured... by me! You can see where my ninja-like hiding skills came into play here.  Immediately, I felt connected to both of them. After I came out of the bushes with tears rolling down my face I had to go and hug Ruth. I felt like I knew her without even meeting her at that point. Then, when I did get to meet her and we talked about their wedding plans I just knew it  all had to work out.  I'm so honored and happy I am able to capture some of the happiest days of their lives. <3

We started off the session at NoDa Brewing Company, where Blair and Ruth had their second date. We laughed and talked about when they first met and how Ruth just knew that something was different with Blair. It all seemed to fit perfectly.
