Kate & Ryan | Duke Gardens | Engagement Session

Kate & Ryan may be NC State Alumni & loyal fans of their Alma Mater, these two couldn't resist a Summer afternoon in the Duke Gardens for their engagement session this Summer.

Being that it was my first time experiencing the incredible span of the Duke Gardens, what amazed me the most is that no matter which corner we turned, we always found something in full-bloom. No matter the time of the year, the season of life, or even the weather that day; there's always something blooming in the gardens. 

This idea fascinated me. Of course a scientific approach to this realization is understandable, but I prefer metaphors to simple reality in many cases. Not only did the three of us stroll through the grounds for the sake of the beauty that the season brought, but to also celebrate the seasons of their relationship; past, present, and future. 

If you were to stay stationary in the gardens, there would be times where your perspective was not nearly as colorful. But as long as you keep walking, you can always find something in bloom. 

Congratulations to Kate & Ryan on their engagement, and we can't wait to welcome their next season of their relationship with their wedding next June!
