I mean… it’s hard to beat a gorgeous mountain sunset hike with the sweetest couple who is adorably in love. Add in their precious, well behaved pups adorned with beautiful floral wreaths made by Petal and Fern and there you have it - the perfect evening! Hannah and Nate brought a friend with them to help with the pups so they could also have some portraits with just the two of them. They danced on the mountain top together as the sun set behind them. They grew up hiking this mountain and now have beautiful moments captured in a place that’s special to them.Read More
I can remember nineteen years ago when my parents would have friends over for “Survivor” night parties to watch the show together. I invested in a one-on-one mentor session with Julia Sears, a photographer I greatly admire, and she goes to “Survivor” night parties since she’s friends with a cast member! So fun that she invited Chris and his beautiful fiancé, Kate, for an engagement session in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Julia let me pick her creative brain and spent a generous amount of her time with me.
Graduation deserves to be celebrated! This family picked the perfect location to reflect their love for the outdoors and adventure and document senior pictures before graduation. I wish this style of senior pictures had been a thing when I graduated high school! We hiked Black Balsam Knob just in time to catch a gorgeous sunset with phenomenal views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. After an awesome hike, they had pizza waiting for them in their car! I knew I liked this family right away and the forethought to pick up a pizza solidified it!
