When I first met Kevin & S.E., I had covid. Before you panic, they live in Atlanta, so our meeting was already virtual——no risk of transmission here! They took my sick status in stride, we got to know one another, and before too long, here we were, hanging out in Raleigh for their engagement session! They came up to NC for several Very Important Wedding Things: choosing linens, catering tasting, and the official Meeting of the Parents. (Never fear: I heard it went great!) Our schedule stars aligned, and we planned a session the same weekend they were going to be up here.

We started at a spot very close to their hearts: Groucho's Deli adjacent to NC State's campus. While S.E. was a grad student at State, Kevin was managing Groucho's, having helped a few friends open the restaurant and get it to its present state as a campus staple. She used to sit at the bar across from the kitchen window during her brief class breaks while he made sandwiches and chatted her up. Doing part of their engagement session at Groucho's was perfect——perfectly sweet, perfectly delightful.

When we left Groucho's for the sunflower fields at Dorothea Dix, S.E.'s mom met us with both her dog Dean and S.E. & Kevin's heterochromatic beauty Roux, who stole the show and all the pets with his lopsided ears and cuteness. Once we had all sweated our faces off to our satisfaction, we headed into downtown Raleigh to finish our session with some murals and some off-camera flash-powered sunset sky magic.

Hanging out with these two was a total vibe and a complete delight, and we cannot wait for their March 2023 wedding. Until then, enjoy a scroll through some favorites from their Raleigh engagement session below!
