| Downtown Fayetteville | Hay Street | September 8th, 2018 | Fayetteville, North Carolina |
We met DoNae and Joe on Hay Street for an afternoon shooting their downtown Fayetteville, North Carolina engagement session. We had never photographed down there before so we arrived about 45 minutes before the session to scope out some great spots and the area did not disappoint. We loved the urban feel and all fo the alley ways and buildings with chipped paint. It had so much character that finding amazing spots were very easy and our beautiful couple made it even more beautiful.
We were blessed to have gorgeous light which always helps to make great images. We started an Hay Street and just wandered around the area to all the many great locations to photograph. After an outfit change we ventured to a nearby park that had a fountain with a waterfall. The sun was almost set once we arrived so we pulled out our flash and began the nighttime portion of our engagement session. We setup one light behind the water to make it sparkle and to give us a great bokeh. Nighttime images are quickly becoming some of our favorite images.
DoNae and Joe are originally from Tennessee so they are getting married there. They had already booked a photographer from that area for their wedding (insert sad face). They are such a sweet couple and we would have been so honored to also capture their wedding day but we know it will still be a beautiful day for a beautiful couple.
