Zoe + Alex – Converted School Bus Home Session

converted school bus home session 01

Zoe + Alex are two great friends who recently celebrated five years of marriage! To document what their love looks like after five years in, we did a super fun home session at a friends old converted school bus. They brought along their banjo and we just hung out, played some songs and had a blast laughing at how I (Brett) couldn’t fully stand up inside the bus, which in hindsight, is actually sort of humorous. Haha. Both are incredible musicians and Zoe even had a stint as a recording artist before moving to North Carolina from Oregon to plant a church with Alex, where they are worship leaders. Basically, they totally amazing humans and we are thankful to be able to call them friends.

Samantha + Lee – Black Balsam Knob Elopement

intimate asheville mountain elopement

[player id=15210]

Samantha and Lee have been living in Asheville for a little while now, so it was only natural to have their elopement take place nearby. We went up to one of their favorite spots, not far from Asheville, in the Pisgah National Forest. Black Balsam Knob also happens to be one of our favorite places in that area as well. Luckily for us though, Samantha + Lee are avid runners and spend a lot of time running trails all throughout the mountains, so they took us to a spot we hadn’t been to out there and it was incredible.  When we left Asheville to head out for their Black Balsam Knob elopement, it was still rather sunny and bright, but as we drove up the Blue Ridge Parkway, the temperature began to drop and beautiful fog began to roll in. Although the fog didn’t allow for us to see the beautiful views from the ridge we hiked to, it still made for this amazing, romantic and moody vibe, which we all just loved.

It was truly a highlight of our year. Just Samantha + Lee and us. It was incredible. It was so intimate and so silent and so still. No distractions making a perfect environment for them to share and express their love. As we hiked back out, we could hear the red fox’s howling off in the distance. It was almost as if they were cheering and congratulating them on their marriage.

Hawksbill Mountain Engagement | Caitlen + Matthew | Linville, NC

[player id=15203]

It’s not everyday that couples are willing to make a hike like this one, but Caitlen + Matthew were all for it. To make their Hawksbill Mountain engagement session happen, we met up with them in Wilkesboro and carpooled out to the beautiful Linville Gorge out past Boone, NC. It’s a beautiful landscape that Jessica and I used love visiting while we were in college. The hike isn’t all that hard, but when you add in the weight of photo gear, change of clothes for the couple and of course, you also don’t want anyone to work up too much of a sweat, it’s definitely one of those a lot might pass on. To us, it’s always totally worth it. Making memories and having time to really connect with our couples is a big part of our process, which is why we often try to make our engagement sessions based on something exciting, adventurous and beautiful. So thankful that Caitlen + Matthew made this trek and as you can see, it was all totally worth it.

Can’t hardly wait for Caitlen + Matthew’s wedding at Overlook Barn next month!

Caitlin + Andrew – Bar Harbor Maine Wedding

Acadia maine wedding

Caitlin + Andrew live and work in Brooklyn, but are two very well traveled people. Travel has a lot to do with their relationship and one of their favorite places to visit is Bar Harbor, Maine. So, they invited their families and closest friends to join them to witness their marriage in a place that holds a lot of meaning to them. Their Acadia National Park wedding was held at the Asticou Inn in Northeast Harbor. It was so beautiful and having never been to Maine before, we were just blown away by it’s natural beauty and charm. The whole vibe of the area was just so laid back and that was reflected in Caitlin + Andrew’s wedding. From the night before, when we got to meet the whole family and their friends to the very end of the reception, we felt like part of the family and when photographing a wedding, there isn’t much more any photographer could ask for.

Ashley + Charles – Black Balsam Knob Engagement

Ashley + Charles are simply awesome people. When you are around them, life feels more free and uplifting and who doesn’t want to feel that way?! So when we set out to plan their Asheville mountain engagement session, we knew we wanted it to feel just that way. We met for beers down in Brevard and drove up to Black Balsam Knob, one of our favorite places ever. As you can see, we had the most amazing light and just best day to shoot. As we were finishing up, this beautiful fog rolled in as the sun was setting and created the most beautiful atmosphere. It was the absolute perfect way to wrap up a session!

Grayson Highlands Engagement – Chloe + Nick

grayson highlands engagement

Grayson Highlands is one of our favorite places to visit and to shoot at. That terrain and those views *heart eyes*. Also, did we mention there are wild ponies out there!? Yes, amazing long haired wild ponies! Unfortunately though, when we traveled up to Virginia for Chloe + Nick’s shoot, we had just missed them. Apparently, every year they sell off a bunch of the ponies to make room for the ones that are about to be born. We were slightly bummed, but it’s still just an amazing place. Add some nearly perfect light and an adorable, wildly in love couple and you won’t even think about the lack of ponies 🙂
