Welcome to my blog! I'm thrilled to be able to share with you my favorite images from weddings, engagements, maternity, and more! Grab a cup of coffee and get snuggly cuz this blog will give you all the feels!
Choosing a location for Heather & David’s engagement session proved to be a challenge. Choices one and two were all booked up for the date they wanted but on a whim, they chose The Biltmore in Asheville. Does any other choice really compare? We spent the afternoon exploring all that the gorgeous grounds have to offer.
Heather and David were a dream to photograph. Their love for each other was on fire! The easiest way to love your photographs is by loving your significant other visibly. I can pose you but poses can only go so far. We read emotions and movement in photographs, they’re what draw you in. Heather and Dave are a great example of “forgetting” that the camera was there and they just enjoyed being together. I just had to be ready for so many sweet moments!
Afterward, we grabbed dinner together and truly became friends. I’m so excited about their September wedding! It’s going to be incredible!
The morning of Kat & Christian’s shoot the forecast changed to rain. These two had traveled the night before 3.5 hours for their engagement session in Blowing Rock only to have to reschedule. We talked multiple times that morning and they ultimately decided that even if it didn’t rain, they really wanted the sunset for their photos. Fair enough and we planned to reschedule.
Fast forward an hour later. I checked the weather again and low and behold it had changed. Summer in North Carolina is like that, fickle. So I called one more time in hopes to convince Kat & Christian to keep their session and apparently I wore them down because they agreed! I told them on the phone “if there isn’t a sun set, I’ll make one for you.”
And that’s exactly what we did. By the time we got to the top of Beacon Heights, the mountain views were covered in a cloud. With a little thought & some off-camera flash skills, we made our own sunset & man was it ever perfect!
After we finished the shoot and we all drove back to town, I noticed a break in the clouds and the most gorgeous sunset peaked through. So I flashed my lights and got Kat & Christian to pull over for a few natural sunset photos too. All in all, it was an epic and fantastic shoot. I’m so thankful Kat & Christian trusted me because their engagement session is one of my new favorites!
Our favorite part of engagement sessions getting to know our clients better. Each location Lauren & Jeff chose showed a new piece of what was important to them. We started the day by visiting the Flying W Airport where Jeff chartered a plane and took us all flying! WOW! I had no idea he had his pilot’s license and it was an incredible experience flying over the New Jersey coast!
Once the golden hour approached, we packed up our bags and ventured over to Tyler State Park in PA. This park reminded me of all the times spent creek stomping at summer camp. Lauren & I reminisced some more as we hiked the creek & trails all around.
