Carver's Gap, on top of Roan Mountain, in the middle of winter. That's the kinda thing only hard-core cross-country skiers and serious birdwatchers do. But when the road to Grandfather Mountain State Park, and the Blue Ridge Parkway are both closed due to snow, you do what you gotta do. And it just so happened to be the perfect location for Ben & Sandra's adventurous proposal & engagement session. In business attire, or in hiking gear, these two are ready for whatever. Cheers ya'll!
Smoke bombs, single digit wind-chills, a golden sunset, and views for miles. What more could you ask for on a mid-December, winter elopement adventure session on the top of Grandfather Mountain- where wonders never cease.

Sarah & Zach hired us for both film and photography on their wedding day at the stunning Blue Ridge Mountain Club. As you can tell from the film, we all had a blast. Sarah, Zach, and all of their peeps were some of the most enjoyable folks we've had the pleasure of being around. We often wonder which parts of the film our clients love the most. So, this time we asked, and here's what Sarah & Zach had to say:
Everything is just so much more than we could have imagined and captured the wedding so well. Everything coordinated so well with both songs like my father picking me up, bouquet toss, etc. It was awesome and I have had so many people reach out to me about how talented you and Paul are after seeing the photos and video. I think right at the 1:00 mark seeing our reactions was our favorite part, but we have a lot of really great favorite scenes:
-2:44 groomsmen reaction
-3:30 the mountain kiss when first song closes out
-5:01 kiss scene
-7:12 slowed down kiss on dance floor
Also the entire exit was insanely perfect in how it closed out - I've never seen us so look so happy!
What an honor to film & photograph Laura & Brian's day at West Glow Resort & Spa, near Blowing Rock, NC- just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day, location, & family to work with. Cheers to you both on your journey of life!
