Roan Mountain, TN: Zach & Daisy's Sunset Engagement Session on Round Bald

Roan Mountain, TN: Zach & Daisy's Sunset Engagement Session on Round Bald

For Daisy and Zach's engagement session, Daisy asked if we could hike up Roan and if they could bring their dog, Dixie, along. You guys already know by now that dogs and mountains are two of my favorite things and especially spending time with my couples, so it wasn't tough for me to say, "Of course!" We spent one of the last warm evenings on top of Roan with Zach, Daisy, and Dixie, and had a great time laughing all the way to sunset.

Roan Mountain, TN: Alexis & John Michael's Intimate Summer Mountain Wedding on Round Bald

Lexie and John Michael chose to get married on top of Round Bald on Roan Mountain, which (as you all know) has a piece of my heart. After two super sweet first looks (one with John Michael, and one with Lexie's dad), Lexie and her dad hiked up to the balds where the two would exchange vows. After their first kiss as husband and wife, Lexie and John Michael gave each other a huge high five, followed by a hug. We then took our time exploring the mountain in our Chacos for portraits. It was truly a perfect Summer evening on Roan Mountain.

Roan Mountain, TN: Mallery & Josh's Intimate Fall Mountain Wedding

Mallery and Josh's intimate Fall wedding on Roan Mountain was magical, to say the least! Josh and Mallery had chosen a spot close to the parking lot at Carver's Gap so that a few of their closest family members and pup, Charlie, could easily be a part of their intimate wedding ceremony. The two said their vows at the most perfect place- right on the Appalachian Trail (a few hikers had even passed through), under a canopy of pine trees.

In [late] celebration of my birthday and turning 26, I thought I would share some random facts about myself to go along with my fresh off the press headshots! Instead of sharing all of the formal things of my life (you can read about those here), I thought it would be fun to share 6 random/fun things you may not know about me. I love sharing the little quirks, since it is truly me.

Kingsport, TN: Amanda & Kenny's Bays Mountain Park Engagement

Ever since Amanda and I had our first meeting months and months ago, I knew that it was going to be amazing to shoot her and her fiancè, Kenny, and I was TOTALLY right. These two are downright adorable and absolutely perfect for each other. We first met up in Johnson City to shoot with Kenny's beautiful Jeep Wrangler Sahara then traveled to Bays Mountain for the rest of the session. We had been watching the weather all week and was really unsure of just how much rain we would have. Luckily, it was only a few sprinkles!
