This is my list (in no particular order) with info links of my favorite places to take my clients on photo shoots here in NC.
The JC Ralston Arboretum http://jcra.ncsu.edu
Yates Mill Farm Park http://www.wakegov.com/parks/yatesmill/Pages/default.aspx
Harris Lake Park http://www.wakegov.com/parks/harrislake/Pages/default.aspx
* Pullen Park is very, very, very, very BUSY on the weekends and parking may be a challenge. That being said this is a fun place to capture photos, especially on the paddleboat. Always schedule an engagement shoot here on weekday mornings, the earlier the better!
The campus of NC State University http://www.ncsu.edu/belltower/
Durham & Chapel Hill Areas
Sarah P. Duke Gardens https://gardens.duke.edu
* Duke Gardens require's a permit, an appointment & charges a rather steep fee to clients who want to take photos here!
American Tobacco Historic District in downtown Durham NC http://www.americantobaccohistoricdistrict.com
The University of North Carolina campus http://www.unc.edu/interactive-tour/landmarks/
