Lake Crabtree Engagement Photos | Angela and Micah

Angela and Micah have such a sweetness about them that is truly special. I took their engagement photos at Lake Crabtree in North Carolina, and they laughed and smiled so much that I hardly had to prompt and direct them! As a result, their photographs came out so honest and joyful; untouched and natural.

Angela and Micah are getting married in less than a month at the Bella Collina Mansion in Stokesdale, NC, and I can’t wait to celebrate with them!

Needless to say, Angela & Micah made all my colorful photoshoot dreams come true with this outfit — all the heart eyes, seriously. Those pops of color made them stand out SO perfectly against the overcast weather we had. Valentine’s day vibes, anyone?

By the way, Crabtree is a lovely photoshoot spot that’s hidden in plain sight. I personally love taking engagement photos at Lake Crabtree whether the weather is rain or shine; it’s got a nature-in-the-city vibe, it’s super versatile, and it’s one of those locations that looks different every day if your photographer captures it well. Because of that, it’s amazing for engagement photos if your photographer knows where to bring you!

Not only are Angela and Micah seriously stylin’ (see their casual yet classy second outfit below!), they also just radiate the love of God. They’re so honest and unhesitatingly kind, and just so welcoming that you can’t but feel like you’ve known them forever. And in case you couldn’t tell, they photograph absolutely beautifully on film! ;)
