Kateleigh & Zack | Downtown Wilmington Engagement Photos


Kateleigh and I met a few years ago while she was living in Wilmington. I was disappointed when she moved away shortly after meeting! But I still remember us chatting over coffee about Zack. I’ve hoped that if they got married I’d have the opportunity to photograph their wedding. When Kateleigh reached out to me a few months ago inquiring about wedding photography, I was thrilled!! These two are SO sweet and cute together. I can’t wait for August 💕

We had a wonderful time on their engagement session! It was so good to see Kateleigh again. We started out at her grandparent’s lake house and it was GORGEOUS! I just love the Spanish moss!!! Then we went to Downtown Wilmington for some more pretty photos! I’m excited to share these!

  1. Kateleigh has the cutest little dog, Margie!! You know I love when my couples bring their dogs to sessions! Just look at that sweet little face!

  2. Kateleigh is a fantastic jewelry maker!! She created the bracelet in the picture above. She engraved the heart, a drawing from their first Valentine’s card. SO SWEET!!! She creates signs too and made the one Margie is wearing! Check out her Etsy shop here.


I’ve wanted to take a picture like this on these beautiful steps of Downtown Wilmington’s courthouse for a long time! Usually, the sun is shining too brightly for it to be the perfect spot, but the clouds worked in our favor!
