Cori & David: Engaged at Craggy Gardens & Blue Ridge Parkway

Filed in: Engagements

This session really got my blood pumping! Not only because I had to hike up and down TWICE to the summit of Craggy Gardens at 7 months pregnant, but the weather sure kept me on my toes.

I had never been to this location before and was SO excited to try something new. My precious husband came with me to this session to help carry my bag (you know, since I’m carrying the baby and all), and we were in awe of the colors we saw driving up the Blue Ridge Parkway. The leaves were some of the best I’ve ever seen! Everything was smooth sailing… until we got right to the top of the mountain. Suddenly, we noticed ALL the leaves were gone and a thick layer of fog was covering everything. Not what we expected! We got to the trailhead and decided to hike up before Cori and David arrived to see if we had any visibility. Nope. Nothing… the views were completely blocked by clouds. We all drove for almost 2 hours to get this view and it can’t even be seen! Luckily, Cori and David put their full trust in me and we decided to hike up again together. We got to the top and low-and-behold the sun broke through the clouds for about 5 minutes. Hallelujah! Working super quickly, we got some of the mountain views that we were hoping for! After hiking back down, we stopped at a few overlooks on the way down the mountain to get some color.

Cori and David, I can’t thank you both enough for trusting me and being so comfortable and confident with my work. I hope you love these photos as much as I do, and I can’t wait to see you again at your wedding in April! Cori! You are absolutely STUNNING!!
