When Jennifer emailed me to let me know she was planning a surprise trip to North Carolina now almost two months ago, I was beyond thrilled, like, leap out of my chair at work thrilled. We have been friends since freshmen year of college, and though we now live in different countries and many miles apart, we still talk several times a week through email and are as close as ever. She is married to a wonderful guy named Ken and I have never seen her happier so thank you Ken! 🙂 I am so glad I got to spend a day with them while they were here in the States, and that we were able to spend an hour grabbing a few photos in downtown Raleigh. Here are a few of my favorites from their Raleigh portrait session, enjoy!
