Well the perks of being a photographer is taking self portraits! Well in this case “us portraits”, tripods are life savers. We have been engaged for 5 months and just now getting around to taking some pictures. I like being able to take my own pictures because one it is free and second I can get exactly what I want. Downtown Raleigh provides a unique but also classic back drop for the stylish session. We both love our winter wardrobes and have a ton of coats so a winter photo-shoot was perfect for us, even though it was freezing. The real downside to shooting “us portraits” is having to fake candid moments but Justin thinks he is a model so he had no problem! We are both very fashion forward and live for the chance to get dressed up, so more pictures may be in the future!
