They walked gracefully down the luscious walkway of the arboretum, easily conversating about their day and their plans following our time together. Vicky and Ryan are our kind of couple; laid-back, easy to talk to, and downright hilarious. Our entire time together at the JC Raulston Arboretum felt more like Patrick and I documenting the relationship of two people who are entirely one. They plan on getting married in Taiwan surrounded by family and friends and we loved that they chose to get their photos taken state-side in Raleigh with us. Enjoy Ryan and Vicky’s effortless love orchestrated on camera.

Vicky and Ryan then changed up their outfits and this last set was seriously magical.
