Mountain Top Engagement Session | Virginia Wedding Photographer
Our friendship with Evan and Cory started well before this hike to Cole Mountain. For James and I, it started on a boat in the Cooper River down in Charleston, SC. That is actually where we were when they submitted their inquiry form! I read through their questions as I was relaxing on the boat and knew pretty immediately that were exactly the type of couple that we LOVE to work with! So James and I have been doing something special for couples who book with us and we thought it would be risky. but also really cool do an intro video for Cory & Evan! So while we were on the boat, James and I introduced ourselves!
Even though I felt so awkward doin it for some reason that made them trust us enough for a Facetime call!! Which that is when we knew that they would be the epitome of an EHP couple!! We absolutely loved hearing about their adventures in Europe, Asia, and beyond as well as their EPIC proposal in Zermatt, Switzerland. Meantime, in the back of my mind, I knew that from their amazing stories that their engagement session needed to be some place epic. Not your typical park around town kinda shoot.
My good friends Jenny & PJ, with Jenny Frances Photography, had been to Cole mountain before so they gave me the scoop on how to get there and where to go! Well wouldn’t you know it, Evan reached out asking about this very location!! Again, another sign they are my dream couple! So of course we chose this epic location for their shoot and boy was the hike worth it!!
This 360 view of mountains, fields, fall colored trees, the one ominous tree (pictured below haha) etc is everything a photographer could ask for! It was, however, very windy and thankfully this Jersey couple lived up to the whole “Northerners don’t get cold easy” saying. James and I were a little cold but I still would 10/10 recommend this spot!! Honestly, the photos don’t do it justice haha! We had so much fun with these two and seriously can’t wait for their wedding at The Seclusion in 2021!!!
Enjoy some of my favorites from this beautiful Fall Cole Mountain Engagement Session!!
