Sarah and Justin are engaged! These two moved to northeast Tennessee all of the way from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for Sarah’s job in the medical field. She is a cardiovascular perfusionist- she basically runs/mans an important machine during heart surgeries! Talk about a badass lady! Sarah and Justin met through mutual friends while in college in Pennsylvania. When they moved here, they took their two dogs to Watauga Lake and pulled off into a cove to let the dogs swim. Sarah had turned around for a photo of the mountains and when she turned back around, Justin was on one knee popping the question! Of course, she said yes!

Justin and Sarah are getting married back in Pittsburgh, where most of their family live. When Sarah contacted me about engagement photography, she said, “We want to show everyone our new home- the mountains of Tennessee!” I knew just the right location! I met Justin and Sarah at Roan Mountain on a warm October evening for their session. They brought their two adorable pups- Aussie and Bella- and we had a blast catching the sunset behind the mountains. The blue ridges were out and showing off!

Sarah and Justin— Congratulations! I am so excited for you two and am glad that I got to capture part of your story! Enjoy your new home and your engagement! Wishing you the best on your wedding day!
