OH, how much I adore this engagement session at Duke University! If you know me well, you know that I LOVE Duke University and all that it has to offer! I especially love Duke Basketball (let’s go Devils)! Fun fact: I actually almost went to Duke as a pre-med major! Oh, how life takes us in totally different directions than we plan for 😉 It’s been a few years since I’ve set foot on the campus, so as soon as I saw “I think we’d like to do our photos at Duke!” in Olivia’s e-mail, my heart skipped a beat (or two)! As many timed as I’ve visited Duke, I’ve never been through the Sarah P. Duke Gardens! Can’t even believe what I was missing out on! It’s actually one of the top rated places to visit while in Durham. Guess I’ve just been under a rock!
It was such an incredible November day for Olivia and Matt and I’m so thankful! I loved getting to know these two as we strolled through the gardens and all throughout campus! Matt has lived in quite a few places, so naturally we started talking through our favorite Charlotte places and and talked through Chicago recommendations (y’all know I love to travel)! Olivia was such a trooper, too, since she was fighting sickness that morning and had a full week of night shift nursing! You would never know, though… because just look at these two!!
Olivia and Matt, I am SO excited for your wedding next summer I can hardly stand it! I’m so happy that after so much long distance, you two finally get to spend your days together in the same city! Your sweet spirits were so pleasant to be around and I hate we have to wait almost 7 months to do it all again! Thanks for showing me one of the prettiest places in Durham! I’m forever grateful 😉 See you both in June!
