Cody & Darcie – Engaged! | Raleigh Wedding Photographer

Darcie & Cody – Raleigh Engagement Session: J.C. Raulston Arboretum
Photography by: Amanda Brendle Photography – Raleigh Wedding Photographer

Darcie and I went to school together and always had friends in common.  When she was the maid of honor at another classmate’s wedding last year, it had been years since we’d seen each other, but she was just as I remembered her – so sweet, full of life and energy, and happier than ever.  You see, her boyfriend was the DJ at the reception, and it was obvious that they were head-over-heels, puppy dog, PB&J, IN LOVE with each other!  They talked about how they met, how similarly-minded and passionate they were of one another, and that they would get married someday.  They had plans.

I was over the moon to see their engagement post pop up on my Facebook newsfeed.  It had finally happened!!  Cody & Darcie are complete lovebirds if I have ever met any, and their love, laughter, and smiles are infectious.  I love being around happy people, and they are some of the best people ever!

There is a whole other part to this engagement session that I can’t share, because they’re going to use some of those pictures for their “Save the Date” announcement.  I. CANNOT. WAIT!  One of my all-time favorite portions of a shoot ever.  They are so stinkin’ adorable.  🙂  That will be saved for a future post after they’ve shared with their friends!!

Until then – Enjoy these images from their session!   I can’t wait for their wedding next June – It’s going to be a blast!


Okay, you may be a little curious about what the heck this next picture is… You see, Darcie & Cody love Disney.  Do you see what I see?  This is also a clue to the next set of pictures I’ll share of these cutie-pies…!  😉
