On a heated summer evening Kelsey, Jay, and doggo Albert, drove from Charleston, South Carolina to Asheville for their engagement session in the “wild”. For them it was much cooler in the mountains and luckily we’d planned on having the session at a waterfall which made for beautiful photos and even better pleasant temperatures! Albert decided to go hardcore parkour on the rocks at the waterfall stunning all of us including a troop of boy scouts— Albert leapt at least 8 feet up onto the rock Kelsey and Jay were on one instance and you could hear everyone gasp. Note to selves: even the best behaved dogs can’t hold back from being wild beasts in nature! Enjoy these photos of two lovely humans and a cute pup!Read More
Jen and Alex’s engagement session was wonderful exploring the Asheville area with the feel of autumn in the air. We hadn’t formally met until their engagement shoot but as soon as they got in the backseat of our car to go we immediately all felt like old friends. Not much better than having couples who are so comfortable with us that it’s as if old pals are just hanging out taking photos. Enjoy every bit of this post— we sure do!Read More
Summertime in Western North Carolina is one of the best times of the year for an engagement session, as well as the most southern time of year-- we've got heat not often paired with humidity, rivers, waterfalls, swimming holes, lightning bugs (or fireflies if you will), music you otherwise might not listen to, and everything else that makes our area great. Olivia and Dillon got the luck of the draw to where they got a summertime engagement session and will be having a beautiful autumn wedding in November! The Blue Ridge Mountain range is the oldest mountain range in the world which means there's billions of years worth of beauty in our region. Enjoy these images from their fun summer session!Read More
It was a perfect summer evening for Danielle and Josh's engagement session at Craggy Gardens. We met up in the parking lot where there were clear blue skies welcoming us up the trail, saying "You won't need those ponchos you said you'd bring just in case". The rhododendrons were still blooming and some even shedding their purple petals along the path which made it feel like a fairytale was unfolding. Once we reached the top the clouds started rolling in, rather quickly, but we still made it out to *the* rock for a few frames. Then it started sprinkling, then it started to rain, THEN it started to pour! Luckily Danielle and Josh listened to my advice, my advice which I didn't take, to bring a poncho in case it rained, so we had a little bit of coverage for the cameras but not us. Needless to say, we took full advantage of the rain on the way down and once we got back to the parking lot. This was one of those engagement sessions that really has a story to tell of the day-- thanks to all that rain! Enjoy!Read More
Hanna and David came down to Asheville for their engagement session and we went to beautiful Looking Glass Falls. It was a warm October day, Hanna got to be barefoot and the water wasn't too cold to bear. The powerful feel of the huge waterfall makes them hold on tightly to each other (and their doggy Ziggy!) and take in the awe of the natural beauty and force. A perfect afternoon with quite the perfect couple! Excited for their wedding this October! Enjoy!Read More
Juliet and Kail's engagement session at apple orchards and gardens was the perfect autumn day to be running around town having fun. They traveled to Asheville for their session and on this day we learned Kail can juggle apples and can probably juggle anything, which is sure to be a skill that will come in very handy some day. Ita, their dog, was such a sweet little beast and she liked to pop in every now and then to be picture perfect with her parents. All around such a beautiful day making memories and new friends!
Kendall and Devin's engagement session at Black Balsam was so fun and easy going yet full of energy and excitement! We got up the mountain a little early so we got to hang out and enjoy each other's company before we started to really shoot. We scheduled the session around when Kendall was returning from deployment in Afghanistan and Devin was in the midst of being a volunteer firefighter... basically these two are regular American heroes and we got the honor of spending a beautiful sunset on top of a mountain with them and their precious pup...Read More
