Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina Engagement Photoshoot

I met up with Will and Sophie in Blowing Rock, North Carolina for their couples session in the mountains. We had some conversations online for a few weeks prior to our photoshoot. I learned that Sophie was an extremely talented designer based out of Raleigh. She makes jewelry and sells in local high end boutiques. You can find her website here at Heir Raleigh. In addition to her business she also goes to Haiti every year to teach local women how to make jewelry and market it in their country. It is safe to say she is not only beautiful on the outside but also has the biggest heart. I am so very fortunate that my job connects me with inspiring people like Sophie.

We started off the day at Will’s family vacation home in downtown Blowing Rock. I was able to assist them in picking out outfits for our photoshoot before embarking on our adventure. We decided we would start the afternoon at a waterfall. We hiked in about a mile to reach the falls all the while getting to know one another. Our personalities immediately clicked and Sophie and Will were able to open up to me photographing the easy love that they share.

After the waterfall we made out way to Grandfather Mountain to end our session with the sunset. Sometimes when I am shooting a session, I find a couple who are able to take the camera out of the equation and just love on each other as if they are the only two people in the world. When that happens, all I have to do is click away and capture it. It makes my job so simple and fun. I am so very happy that I was able to meet and connect with these two very wonderful people.
