This engagement session makes me speechless. My first time to Max Patch and it will be unforgettable. Located on the Appalachian Trail, the bald mountain has breathtaking 360-degree views of the Great Smoky Mountains, Balsam Mountains, and Black Mountains. When I met with Karissa, she said wanted golden hour photos and rolling blue mountain views. Max Patch […]

Oh isn’t love such a sweet thing!! These two smiled and laughed the entire time we spent together at Hanging Rock State Park! Oh and their pups absolutely stole my heart, very well behaved even when we were chasing the light through the open field. This is one of my favorite locations close to home […]

Summer isn’t done yet! Y’all this engagement session was everything and full of city vibes! It’s already been such a hot and dry September, but this day the humidity was lower and a slight breeze which made it more enjoyable. Taylor being a photographer herself knew exactly what she wanted. I don’t often shoot in […]

I finally got to meet up with Bethany and Tyler in Whiteville, North Carolina while they were in town for the holidays. It wasn’t my first time visiting this small town. The downtown streets and buildings, the Madison House, and Bethany’s aunt’s backyard was the perfect sitting for their engagement session. Whiteville is Bethany’s hometown […]

About two months ago I was heading to a park on the Blue Ridge Parkway. My GPS completely failed me, and I lost all cell service. I was lost and never reached my destination. I knew I was in a town called Traphill. Somewhere I had never been before, and probably wasn’t going to return. […]

Over 600 acres of gravel roads, rolling hills, tall trees and one beautiful white barn. The couple, Afton and Ryan, who are a pure joy to be around. Insert heart eyes for Afton’s burgundy marionette maxi […]
