Blue Ridge Parkway Engagement Photography, Asheville North Carolina
Location: Black Balsam Knob, NC
Blue Ridge Parkway, NC
For many of my adventurous couples, the mountains outside Asheville North Carolina are an amazing location for wedding and engagement photography! Matt and Lee were not different – they enjoy the great outdoors and wanted engagement photos that demonstrated their mutual enjoyment of it. This trip turned out to be quite a journey – a 2 hour drive to a unique mountain area, punctuated by severe thunderstorms and 30-40 mph winds. These were by far the most challenging shooting conditions I’ve ever shot in. We had to deal with cold issues, overly cloudy skies, lightning risks, and winds which made lighting equipment impossible to use and rendered hairstyles unnecessary. However, we all knew the risks and the decision to go was still unanimous because we also knew if the clouds broke at sunset, we would have once-in-a-lifetime lighting to work with. What resulted was an amazing time, and some of the best late afternoon lighting I’ve ever had in an engagement session. All in all, it was a perfect setting for a happy, lively couple looking toward their next big adventure.
