Searching Google news today for the N.C. State Fair turned up a very engaging hit. Raleigh photographer Ashley Stephenson of Nas Image photography posted a call to engaged couples, newlyweds and families who share her love for the Fair on her blog:

My FAVORITE seasons are winter and fall. I love the colors in the fall, and feeling the cooler breeze slowly pushing out the heavy heat and humidity. My whole life I have always associated fall with the NC State Fair! We lived just a few miles from the fairgrounds- you could smell the food and see the fireworks from my backyard.
I love shooting at the fair… tons of lights, tons of colors, rides, people, stuff, junk, etc!! So here is my question for you…
Who wants an engagement/bridal/family/kids/senior/love shoot at the fair this year?? Think about it! Our new townhouse is less than a mile (I measured) from the fairgrounds, you can come here, change clothes, and we can head on over! Please please please?? 🙂

We think it’s a great idea! Imagine your sparkly diamond wrapped around the stick of a deep fried candy bar; a family picture around the giant pumpkins; or an anniversary kiss on the Ferris Wheel. Anyone game? Head over to Ashley’s Web site!

About Cotton Candy

Karlie Justus - blogged for the 2008 / 2009 N.C. State Fairs. This is her bio from 2009: When I'm not blogging for the N.C. State Fair, I go by Karlie Justus--but Cotton Candy suits me just fine. My earliest memories of the Fair are of the times my parents would bring my brother and I up from Asheville, N.C. for a double dose of the Fair and a N.C. State football game. Fast-forward two decades later, and I'm a public information officer for the deep fried celebration whose must-see Fair attractions include the giant pumpkins, decorated cakes and deep fried Oreos.
