Engagement Story: Jessica and Jeremy

David and I anxiously waited by the fountain and hoped that the couple we were about to meet wouldn't think we we're crazy!  Jessica and Jeremy traveled from Charlotte, NC to do their engagement shoot at the NC State Fair.  We went early to figure out what spots would be best in the chaos that is the fair... and hoped that Jessica and Jeremy were the type to let us do anything.  Boy were we in for a treat.  From the moment we met them I knew we were a good match.  We had the best time during their shoot!!  Jessica was in a cute skirt and still did everything we suggested- love them!

As we were walking to our first spot, we noticed this little stand.  I am not sure the fair guy loved us stopping by, but he gave us permission anyways!

Good one David!  The colors were so amazing out there... and the sky was so clear and blue!

Quiet moment during fair chaos.

Nothing like stopping to take a dip in the middle of "traffic".

Smooch over corn dogs.

The fair calls for some vintage editing... I could not help myself.

Did I mention they were cute?  They stayed cute even though we had to share our bucket seat with a family of three (who were so nice to tolerate the four of us- thanks guys!).

This one just has a cool feel to me... you can see David on the left.  We were packed in quite nicely.

HAD to make at least one look like a Polaroid.

Jessica and Jeremy- We had the BEST time with you two!  It is even more exciting that we have future shoots with you.  Thanks again for being such great sports!

some of these look extremely posed.

Hello "anonymous", thanks for stopping by.

Some of them were posed. All of them except one were set up and then we just shot what happened after we set things in motion.

I find it interesting that the only time people do not leave their name is when they want to leave a "negative" comment.
