Mountain Top Engagement Session | Blue Ridge Parkway | Virginia Wedding Photographer

Emily and Bill are one of the most adventurous couples I have met. In fact, just days after this session they left for a 7 week adventure across Egypt! When deciding on a location for their engagement session it was obvious it had to be on a mountain. They met as camp counselors taking kids hiking, white water rafting, caving, and other adventures. Their first date was going rock climbing and Bill proposed while hiking up a 500' mountain.

Emily grew up in a military family, just like I did, and we got along immediately. She is not only adventurous but she's so laid back and you can tell she can fit into any surrounding she is placed, which is what happens when you move your whole life. Bill is just an all around great guy. The type of guy you want your daughter to fall in love and marry and I don't say that lightly as the mom to three girls! Watching them climb through the rocks together, while Emily was freezing and wearing heals part of the time, was like watching a romantic comedy. They laughed and kissed without being guided it made our session a breeze, and it was so breezy this day with gusts up to 40 mph and a windchill around 30!

I am so lucky to get to tell their love story that started in the mountains. I was so thrilled to do my first every mountain top engagement session and they were the perfect couple to show me how it should be done! I cannot wait for their summer wedding and to watch the adventures that follow.
