Anna & Jamie were absolute champs on this chilly day! We hiked up to Black Balsam Knob through the woods to arrive at this view that never gets old. I have probably been up to Black Balsam Knob nearly 30 times at this point… it’s just the kind of beauty that never ceases to amaze me.

The Blue Ridge Mountains contain some of my & my client’s favorite spots. My signature spots to bring clients are typically here, Max Patch, Looking Glass falls & a few hidden secrets I have found over the years. All of these locations are timeless & are places you can revisit over and over.

One of my favorite things to hear is when couples revisit the spots they took their engagement or elopement photos at! I love that these sessions can create memories & spacial places to look back on or revisit for years to come. These sessions are about so much more then pretty photos – they are memories to hold onto through the good and bad.

Anna & Jamie are certainly the kind of couple that holds these memories dear. I cannot wait to photograph their big day this fall!

Okay – enough of my ramblings. Check out their killer session!


I believe photography is much more than creating beautiful images – it’s about the connection that you share as a couple and the human connection that we also share that will aid in capturing images that are representative of you and your unique love.

My goal is always to show a unique perspective on what makes this time in your life so beautiful. Lets learn more about each other and share in each other’s lives. Lets laugh with the good and capture the hard times for what they are. Lets set our sight on the beauty of what is happening in the present, so years down the road you can relive the joy and love of this season through images that represent you well.
