It's time to schedule your Silvercord engagement photo session here in Raleigh!

Even though it's January, now is the time to book your winter or springtime engagement photography session! If your thinking about getting some fun and gorgeous engagement photos then there is no better time then right now to book your date before my calendar fills up. As of today, I've got a few weekend shoot dates open as well as plenty of weekday morning availability during the next few months. To take advantage of the best natural light of the day my photo shoots start at 9:30 AM & 10:00 AM and in the afternoons at 3:30 pm & 4:30 PM 


I  am happy to go wherever you and your fiancé would like to capture the photos that mean the most to you here in the Raleigh, Durham or Fayetteville areas. If you're into the beach then I'm ready to head out to Kure Beach or Surf City and take a dip (waist deep anyway, haha) in the Atlantic ocean during a spring session to capture your portraits on the shore. If your more of a mountain person, then lets go to Asheville or Cherokee and find a high peak to capture some epically romantic photos of you and your fiancé at the top of the world.


*I do charge a small fuel fee for photoshoots that take place outside a 50 mile radius of Raleigh but I also allow for a longer photoshoot time to make up the extra cost in travel for you. After all an extra 45 mins or more time spent taking pictures at the beach or in the mountains is something I'd do for free anyway, haha!

  By the way, if your wondering when the trees and flowers in the Raleigh area bloom (to add that pop of color to your engagement photo background), your best bet is to schedule your engagement session is after the week of April 10th, 2018. Also downtown Raleigh is a colorful location to photograph anytime of year, particularly around Moore Sq. near Cobblestone Hall. Lots of business have brightly painted doors and cheerfully colorful walls which contrast nicely with the grey cobblestone streets and red brick buildings even in early spring.

With spring flowers comes spring showers. Yep, that is the truth! Thunderstorms are very common this time of year but I won't let it dampen our plans for a scheduled photo shoot. Normally thunderstorms quickly pass and rain showers aren't necessarily a reason to call off a photoshoot unless the radar indicates severe weather (tornados & lightning) or prolonged rainfall (over two hours). To beat the odds of a storm ruining our plans I have have found that scheduling engagement photoshoots in the morning dramatically lowers the risk of weather-related rescheduling due to the fact that most thunderstorms tend to form in the warm afternoons here in NC. If the worst happens and the weather doesn't cooperate I give the highest re-booking priority to my client's whos photoshoots are rained out. All of that being said though, retreating storm clouds offer suburb opportunities to capture once in a lifetime dramatic engagement photographs that will be sure to stand out from everyone else photos.
