Today I wanted to share a bit about WHY I love elopements and am so incredibly stoked to be apart of them.
I am drawn to the bravery and the genuineness of elopements. As a photographer, elopements have allowed me the privilege to witness people - as raw and real as possible - standing in front of each other, declaring and promising their love in a unique, passionate, and epic way that means everything to them. There's no fancy front to put on - just two people wholly and entirely in love with each other, promising to spend their lives together in a way that's true to who they are. The couples I have photographed - and the couples like you, who I hope to photograph - continue to cement my belief in the elopement experience. Elopements capture the unique, authentic, and honest love between two people as they take each others hands and dive into or hike, climb, or jump into, the greatest adventure of their lives.
Brittany got a FREE photo sessions for entering my giveaway. Originally we planned for Black Balsam Knob but Blue Ridge Parkway is closed for the winter. SO we did what any adventure session consists of, and walked down Blue Ridge Parkway about a mile to Devil’s Courthouse. We had the place to ourselves! Mother nature I thought would bless us with some sun per weather forecast but NOPE cloudy and COLD. Ya know the usual lol. Anywho we stopped by some locations like the Fir Forest and Devil’s courthouse overlook and tunnel. I can see why they close Blue Ridge Parkway during winter, go thru the pics and about halfway thru you’ll get to Devil’s Courthouse tunnel photos.
During my travels I see the most epic landscapes and it always makes me stop in my tracks. This blog will be updated periodically with images I can NOT share, they’re too amazing. These are resized however if you are inquiring about prints, please email me at email@example.com
Often, I get asked by couples who choose eloping “What do I do for my ceremony?”
An elopement ceremony is different than a traditional wedding ceremony because there’s more freedom to create something that you both feel represents you as a couple. We wanted to share a few ideas for what to do during your elopement ceremony, whether you choose to have a self solemnizing ceremony on a mountaintop or a intimate wedding ceremony with a few close family and friends.
