where words don't do justice for the moments contained
When Lauren first reached out to me, I knew we’d hit it off. Not only do we share the same name (DUH), but a love for adventure and the mountains. She and Lucas had recently got engaged (after knowing each other since the 4th grade!) and they wanted to celebrate with a fun and unique engagement session near Asheville. After some planning, the two drove down 4 hours from Virginia. Their session consisted of some hiking, waterfalls, lots of stairs 😅, a change of scenery and then a hike up to Black Balsam for a picnic and quick change into some wedding attire.
Today though, I’m only going to be sharing the latter! We shot for about 3.5 hours, so I will dive into the first half of their session another time.
After about an hour with them, the clouds and wind began to roll in. If you know me, you know this is the vibe that I LIVE for. I truly feel that weather like that can evoke more intimacy and emotion to come across in photographs, so it was perfect in its timing to photograph this couple’s next big step.
