They couldn’t decide. They loved the city and the mountains. So they did both. This is the first time we’ve ever photographed two engagement sessions for the same couple, but I hope it’s the start of a new trend! The first session was fun. We walked around uptown Charlotte, got to know them, and they learned how we operate behind the camera. The second session we were all relaxed! I was comfortable photographing them, and they were comfortable being photographed. It was like we were old friends just hanging out!
I met them up in Boone on my first solo road trip without the baby. Even though I lived in the mountains most of my life, this was my first time exploring Boone. It was just as adorable as I expected it to be! I met them at the very spot where he proposed, the old Mast General Store. We all bought way too much candy, and sugared ourselves up so we were all nice and hyper for pictures : ) Then they took me on a parkway tour stopping at several new places to me! I love exploring the mountains! I may not miss living there, but I definitely love visiting. Especially on a gorgeous day like this one! We ended the evening at one of the prettiest scenic overlooks that I’ve ever seen. Up until that day, I’d always wondered why they call it the Blue Ridge Mountains. Not any more. They truly lived up to their name that evening!
Thank you two for showing me around Boone and making it such a fun experience! Can’t wait to see you again in a few months for more pictures…and a wedding! : )
He proposed right on the steps with pumpkins that had “will you marry me” carved into them!
Oh, and we found a random corn field!
Then they took me to this stunning hiking area! Look at those rolling hills and sunshine!
About 10 minutes before sunset, I looked at them and asked if there was anywhere close where we could look out over the mountains. This is where they took me! I’d say it’s pretty perfect!
One of my absolute faves!
