Epic Sunrise Adventure Engagement Session with Hallie and Baker at Rough Ridge on the Blue Ridge Parkway- Blowing Rock, NC. I had to wake up at 4AM to catch the light just right in this shot, but had such a fun morning hiking up to this beautiful spot. Photo was taken early April so the mountains were not green quite yet.
Since I live in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, I specialize in Adventure Engagement Sessions for my couples. The beautiful rolling mountains of Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia are my home.
Brittany and Brandon live in a big city, so when they told me they wanted to get out to an epic location with big views, I knew just the place! This photo is taken on top of Hawksbill Mountain along the rim of Linville Gorge, NC. It was not an easy hike to get here, but the views are worth the effort. This whole region is part of a National Forest, so there is not development insight. The couple and the scenery are so beautiful! I can't even get enough!
As an Adventure Wedding Photographer, I shoot in the mountains on a weekly basis. If you have ever shot in the mountains, or at higher elevations, you know that the weather can be unpredictable! So when I have an engagement shoot scheduled, and the weather is calling for rain, I still shoot with the couple. I never cancel. It creates the most unique photos with the clouds and sunlight shining through. There is always a feeling of mystery and adventure that comes across in photos like this.
It was a pleasure to shoot Sarah and Morgan's adventure engagement session in the mountains recently! I hope to have many more sessions as epic as this one!
Carlie and Hunter wanted to get their engagement photos at a waterfall in the East Tennessee area. I found this secluded falls, in the National Forest just outside of our hometown, where we could have privacy and enjoy our time shooting. The cold mountain spring water made for a VERY cold shoot. Look closely and see the chill bumps on her arms! With the unique spot, the Autumn leaves swirling in the water, and the love between this young couple, it made for a magical photo session indeed!
It is not often that I do bridal sessions, but when I do, I really enjoy them. When Rebeka asked me to shoot her bridals, I was honored. I wanted to get creative with them and include a sense of mystery and drama. With the dark shadows, and only using the natural light coming through the windows of the 200-year-old farmhouse, we were able to do just that!
What can I say about this photo? It speaks for itself. As soon as I saw this angle of this enchanting scene, I knew I had to have this shot. Located in the Botanical Gardens of Asheville, NC, the bridge passes over a picturesque creek and the afternoon light was just perfect that day. Julianne and Zach's engagement photos all turned out beautifully that day, but this one was a standout! It really does transport you to a fairytale and the story of a prince and princess lost in a wood together...
