Brevard Engagement Photographer ~ Hannah & James

Welcome to summer in Brevard, NC! Green, green and more green- I mean we do live in a temperate rainforest! What do I tell my clients this time of year?!? PLEASE don't wear green to your photo shoot! 🙂

I was so excited to finally meet Hannah & James (any Maylyn too). Hannah and I have talked on the phone and through email so much over the past few months it was so nice to finally put a face to a name. I always love doing engagement sessions because it gives me a chance to get to know couples better- find out how they met, how he proposed, what they like to do together. It also gives couples a chance to get comfortable in front of the camera. Hannah and James had no problem - they were naturals in front of the camera. And sweet Maylyn helped me behind the camera. I can't wait for their fall wedding in Statesville!

Brevard Engagement Portraits ~ Karlee & Sean

Gracie has a pretty big announcement to make . . .

Brevard Engagement Photographer

Yep! Her mom and dad are getting married!! Karlee, Sean AND Gracie traveled almost two hours to have their engagement portraits done in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Every day I fall more and more in love with where I live! The beauty that surrounds me everyday in my "home" town made the perfect backdrop to show off Karlee & Sean's love for one another. I cant wait until their 2015 wedding!

Brevard Engagement Photographer ~ Tricia & Joffrey

I love it when I make new friends though my wedding clients. Tricia & Joffrey are definitely keepers 🙂

If you follow my blog or have checked out my facebook page lately you know that WNC has been battling tons of storms and rain. Half of Brevard is flooded at the moment. So its put quite a damper on portrait sessions- lots of rescheduling and waiting for the rain to pass. On the evening of Tricia & Joffrey's session we moved their session time up (the radar showed a storm coming). As soon as we met up the rain started to fall. But we drove past the rain and made it to the Blue Ridge Parkway - where it was bright and sunny (not the ideal light for a photographer- but we made it happen). How cute is this couple?!?

Lake Toxaway Engagement Photographer ~ The 15 Minute Session

I met Toni a couple of years back at a bridal fair.  I am so excited that she and Jim have finally set the date for a romantic low key summer 2014 wedding!

AND It's true!  We shot this session in 15-minutes!  The second I arrived on location to meet Jim & Toni for their engagement session it started raining.  So we go the photos we could before the down pour started!  You may see more of this lovely couple as we reschedule their session for later this month and hope for blue skies.
