I am so excited to share this sweet engagement session on the blog! Carter and Ashley currently live in Raleigh but they knew they wanted to go to a place they both love to capture... their love. The mountains. I have to tell you guys.. the drive up there wasn't bad at all BUT when we got there and it was cloudy and raining I was pretty nervous since I was not staying the night and only had one evening to get this session in. I was not going to let a little rain keep us from getting these pictures. Carter and Ashely felt the same and as soon as they arrived, along with Ashley's best friend, we started our hike up craggy gardens. We did make a couple of stops on our way (STRAIGHT) up. Also.. I have to mention... Ashley hiked up a mountain in HEELS! She is superwoman. It rained our whole hike up but when we reached the overlook the rain stopped. It was still cloudy but we got the perfect mist/clouds that made for some amazing shots. After being up there for about 30 minutes we saw just the smallest sliver of sub peak out. We decided to give it a few more minutes and boy I'm so glad we did! It was like the heavens opened up. It turned from a soft yellow to this golden orange that lit up the sky. I can not wait for their wedding in October! Check out their engagement session below!
