Sometimes the universe and Mother Nature align so very perfectly, and that’s exactly what happened for Ben + Sarah’s engagement photos at Biltmore Estate! With a little sunshine and then some clouds, we had amazing mountain views as their backdrop with dreamy light mixed in!
When Ben originally contacted me about photos he was wanting his marriage proposal to Sarah captured, right in the Italian Garden at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. Since they were traveling in from out of town and they had an unplanned late arrival, things did not end up working out on his proposal day. With this unforeseen change, he found his perfect moment to propose to Sarah at another time, and asked me to meet them the next day for engagement photos. Of course I agreed, as I was ecstatic to capture their love in one of the most beautiful places!
When we met on the front lawn at Biltmore Estate the sun was shining with light clouds in the sky. The air was cool, and we had an even cooler wind surrounding us. The estate was quiet, just as I like it for photo shoots, so it almost felt like we had the place to ourselves! As we started our session together Sarah and Ben quickly got comfortable in front of my camera and showed me all of their love and fun right from the start. Ben’s humor and silliness had Sarah laughing out loud. I absolutely loved it!
As we wandered through the estate, clouds began to roll in creating very beautiful and dreamy evening light. The crowds at Biltmore got even lighter and we found ourselves alone in the walled garden. It was quiet, peaceful, and the first pops of spring color were starting to show. It was a perfect stop along our tour of Biltmore’s gardens!
We wrapped up our session at the top of the esplanade with the most amazing long range mountain views that sat just over the roof of Biltmore house. This is one of my favorite spots on the estate. Sarah and Ben loved this spot too, and it was wonderful to be able to share it with them!
Congratulations Sarah and Ben!
