Kaylee + Thomas

Kaylee and Thomas wanted an outdoors engagement session around downtown Raleigh so we chose the WRAL Azalea Gardens and the North Carolina Museum of Art! We had such a fun time goofing around with these two on a warm cloudy afternoon and we could not forget to take photos with their COVID-19 themed wedding masks!

Penny + Tim

This is an incredibly difficult post for me to share. These two beautiful people are my parents and these photos are some of my absolute favorites I have ever taken. These two humans mean so much to me and I would not be who I am today without them.

Aja + Alex

We had such a fun time with Aja + Alex at their couples boudoir session! They started off wrestling on the bed, had some sweet cuddles, full-belly laughs, and ended the session with a bubble bath and some butt grabs.

Christina + Drew

After months of rescheduling due to the pandemic we finally met up with Christina + Drew at the WRAL Azalea Gardens and North Carolina Museum of Art on a sunny and warm October afternoon.

Nicole + Zac

This beautiful wedding is from fall 2018 – I’m totally calling myself out here on how much I’ve been lagging on blog posts! Nicole + Zac said their vows in St. Mary’s Chapel then celebrated with a large party at The Stockroom at 230 in downtown Raleigh. And they had the coolest transportation between locations – the Raleigh Trolley!

Anna + Brayden

Anna + Brayden’s garden inspired wedding at the Old Lystra Inn nestled in Chapel Hill featuring blush, gold, and navy blue colors.


Samantha’s bridal session at the Oaks at Salem turned out to be one of our luckiest because it snowed during her session!

Vicky + Colin

These two lovebirds wanted to have a couples boudoir session that brought out their fun nature together as a couple. From baking cookies to flour fights and even a candlelit snuggle on the floor, this session was just as unique and fun as this adorable couple!

Angela + Ryan

We met up with Angela + Ryan at William B. Umstead State Park in Raleigh, NC to take some engagement photos for their save the dates! They chose this location because of the great woodsy vibe without having to walk very far and were super excited to have the fall colors still showing even in mid-November!


I’ve had a passion for boudoir since I started Ariel Kaitlin Photography 4 years ago and have been low-key offering these sessions. Well, with a brand new website and some new portfolio images I am finally opening up about offering these sessions! No low-key offering any more, just all the beauty and booty in your face!


This was such a wonderful bridal session. Megan had the perfect light for her mid-day June session even though it was a tad hot outside. Her flowing dress and veil were very whimsical against the soft greenery everywhere and her adorable doggo, Bailey, made a shining guest appearance adorned in a floral collar that matched Megan’s bouquet!
