Blue Ridge Parkway: Ashley + Logan's Breathtaking Windy Mountain Engagement Session

Blue Ridge Parkway: Ashley + Logan's Breathtaking Windy Mountain Engagement Session

I kicked off the year with Ashley and Logan’s engagement session, and let me say- we started with a bang! I’ve wanted to shoot on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a few years now, and when I first pitched a list of locations to Ashley, I was silently hoping they’d pick the parkway. Needless to say, they made my parkway dreams come true! We had a blast laughing and hiking up to the view! I just love how these two make each other smile and laugh constantly. They are absolutely perfect for each other and it’s so easy to see just how much they care one another.
