Countryside Engagement | Ben + Samantha

We always walk away from a session feeling awesome, knowing we got images we are totally in love with. But every once in a while, we do a session, and we're just blown away by how wonderfully everything went. Where it's just beyond awesome. The sun set in the perfect spot, the location was ideal, and the couple were so madly in love, you didn't know what to do with yourself. Ben and Samantha had one such session. 

Brian and I drove out to the Chapel Hill country side to photograph them at Ben's parent's house - and it was the perfect backdrop. We love when we get to photograph locations with deep personal meaning. Both Ben and Sam are close to each other's families and photographing them there, where they were so comfortable, with people they love looking on, and a glass of wine only a few steps away - well yeah, it was as close to perfect as you can get!

Ben and Sam, your September wedding is going to be so special, so fun, and we cannot wait to be a part of it! You two are both amazing people, and we are so happy we get to have a little part in this journey of yours. 

Much Love,  

The Watts

We started their session right around 6 so the light filtering in the trees was warm and dreamy!

The images I got from having Ben tickle Samantha were so adorable, I know I'll have to sneak this trick into another session!
