You guys, I don’t think I can adequately explain how excited I am to be out of hibernation. This gorgeous engagement session was the first of the year, and I don’t think I could have kicked it off with a better location, or a sweeter couple! From our very first conversation, Alex knew she wanted a mountain engagement session! When she told me this, I got so excited. We considered multiple locations and finally decided on Pilot Mountain in North Carolina.
If you are a photographer looking for easily accessible, non-permit mountain locations- this is it! Most of the mountainside photos were taken just about 30 seconds from the main path. We literally walked less than five minutes away from the parking lot, and were greeted with stunning views! This was perfect for me, since I’m still recovering from hip surgery. It’s also great that my clients didn’t have to mess up their outfit or shoes trying to get to the location.
Alex and Michael currently live in North Carolina, but are getting married in Kentucky this Summer. Alex warned me that they are not the most photogenic couple, but I have no clue what she was talking about! They quickly learned the poses, and were so calm and natural throughout the entire process.
This sweet couple first met at St. Jude’s Research hospital during a Pediatric Oncology Education Program. They are both in the medical field, and are a total power couple. I’m honored to be the one who gets to capture their big day!
I hope you enjoy the highlights from this engagement session just as much as I enjoyed capturing them!
