A Timeless Summer Engagement at JC Raulston Arboretum

I met Alyssa and Jordan online shortly after their engagement. Jordan planned a special surprise proposal that even the rain didn’t slow down. Their friends and family were invited to celebrate after hiding nearby. Just a few weeks after Alyssa’s surprise proposal, they celebrated their new engagement with engagement photos at JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh.

My goodness how sweet Alyssa and Jordan are! You can tell when a couple has been together a long time from the easy rhythm that they share, calming love, and infectious humor. Their conversational flow and their storytelling traded quickly back and forth warmed my heart. And my personal favorite, both Alyssa and Jordan are fans of the sciences, and work in the STEM industry that is deeply rooted in the Raleigh area. We wandered around JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC slowly, stopping to trade stories, stopping to laugh, and watched a few butterflies on the seasonal flower blooms. We almost had the park alone to ourselves during their session, and enjoyed the final hours of the late summer sun before the day ended. Alyssa’s smile grew wide and her eyes lit up when Jordan shared kisses and jokes into her ear, and it was so wonderful to see how kind & loving they are to each other. The JC Raulston Arboretum was the perfect place for their engagement photos.
