Spring Downtown New Bern NC Engagement Session Alyssa + Ryan Engaged | New Bern Wedding Photographer

Spring Downtown New Bern NC Engagement Session by Christina Forbes Photography

Today I’m introducing you to Alyssa and Ryan! I’m so excited to share their gorgeous spring downtown New Bern Nc engagement session with you! I love that Alyssa and Ryan invited me to join them while they were visiting their hometown of New Bern for their engagement portrait session. It had been a really long time since I had last visited New Bern…and it wasn’t really a visit because I was only there for a cheer competition in High School. HaHa. So I honestly never saw much of it, let alone even realize that it’s the birthplace of Pepsi! And I have to say that I have been missing out on a BEAUTIFUL coastal town! I’m kinda sad it’s taken me so long to visit! Because it’s really that gorgeous you guys! I can’t wait to visit again for their wedding next May!

When I first met with Alyssa and Ryan, I loved hearing how they both moved from Pennsylvania to New Bern as kids. And how they met & fell in love! I loved listening to them as they shared what they love most about each other and seeing the joy in each other as they spoke about one another was so beautiful! And that same love shined through during their portrait session! You can see the joy as they laugh together, the fun they have as they walk hand in hand and the comfort they have in each others embrace. They have a love that makes you smile because you know you’re watching love that is truly special, real and authentic!

I absolutely enjoyed walking around with these two lovebirds in downtown New Bern! Everywhere we stopped it was so beautiful. We stopped at the Historic Christ Episcopal Church, Stanley House and the marina. I’m not sure which location was my favorite though?! There was something beautiful and unique in each one that made my little heart happy. But I do have to say that any location that has trees with spanish moss, historic homes and sailboats get me every single time! Here’s a few of my favorite portraits from Alyssa + Ryan’s engagement session in New Bern, NC!
