Looking Glass Falls Engagement Photographer | Samantha + Derek

This gorgeous couple was up for an adventure and traveled all the way from Chicago for an engagement session in our beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains! They love to travel, and love this part of the country! I am thankful they chose this area and am honored to have photographed this special time! 
When Derek and I first connected, I could tell right away that he and Samantha loved to travel together, and that they were up for a fun engagement session! He told me about how they love Asheville and the mountains of western North Carolina and envisioned their engagement photos with long range views and a waterfall. I was so very excited hearing this, because as you know, I too love traveling, adventure, and anything outdoors! Right away we made a plan for an early morning session along the Blue Ridge Parkway and at Looking Glass Falls.
On the morning of our session the air was cool and damp, we were surrounded by fog and low lying clouds, and our chosen locations were perfectly quiet and serene. There was not a single car or person to be seen or heard during our daybreak session. It could not have been more perfect! 
To start our session we met at Funnel Top Overlook just south of Mt. Pisgah along the Blue Ridge Parkway. When we first arrived the fog was thick, but was quickly moving through the area. For a few moments there was a break in the low lying clouds and we captured our first shots of Derek and Samantha, with some valley views! As the area fogged over again, we decided to move on to Looking Glass Falls and spend the rest of our time there. 
After we arrived at Looking Glass Falls we walked down the steps to the base of the falls and rock hopped out into Looking Glass Creek while being misted by the waterfall spray. Samantha and Derek instantly wrapped their arms around each other and took in the view of the falls. It was a perfect start to our time at the falls and along the creek! For the rest of the session Derek and Samantha rock hopped, climbed on fallen tree trunks, and waded in the creek, all while I captured their sweet moments together. 
These two have an incredible connection that I felt as soon as I asked them to wrap their arms around each other for their first photo! Their sweet smiles, loving gazes, and soft touches that they shared made for an amazing session! 
Congratulations, Derek and Samantha!
