Summer Mountain Engagement Photos | Black Balsam Engagement Photos
Matt + Ericka
Do you know what I love about mountain engagement photos in the Summer? Everything. So hot outside that you can fry an egg on the sidewalk? Not in the mountains. Can’t see the sunset because something is blocking the sun? Not in the mountains. Tired of the same old engagement photos you always see everywhere else? ….Not in the mountains.
Summer mountain engagement photos are the perfect way to announce an engagement…or maybe even just grab some amazing couple’s photos. I have never had a bad time in the mountains for an engagement session. Sure an engagement session in the mountains has it’s challenges, but it is ALWAYS worth it. Take Ericka and Matt for example. This was their third…yes third try for their engagement session. First time was completely rained out. The second time, we at least made it to Asheville, but had to call it due to rain immediately after arriving. But as with most things in life, the third time is the charm. Ironically, they originally wanted a split session with half in the mountains and half in Asheville NC, but an interstate closure changed those plans, and we decided to just focus on the mountain aspect. I am so glad we decided to go that route, because what happened after that can only be described as the ultimate culmination of everything I dream of when it comes to engagement photos: A perfect couple, a great location, and beautiful lighting.
Seriously, I could not have asked for a better situation. Plus, the Summer light created that beautiful orange glow that we all know and love. Couples like Ericka and Matt make be love being an engagement photographer, and sunset in the mountains make me happy to be alive.
