Shannon and Eddie chose to capture their love with Black Balsam Knob engagement photos. Black Balsam is one of the most popular, go-to spots for engagement photos with mountain views. However, there are so many other incredible places in the Asheville area to choose from that it really is a tough decision.
BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY SESSIONS
One of the most inquired spots for engagement photos (or family photos) is the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are so many different options for location spots that I truly don’t even know where to begin sometimes. So most of the time, I ask my clients if there is a spot that is extra special to them. Maybe they have a favorite waterfall or a hike that the two of them conquer often. If so, that’s where we start! Black Balsam was that special spot for Shannon and Eddie. The two of them loved being outdoors and shared hikes often. This one in particular held lots of meaning. So we made sure to embrace that and lean into their mountain-loving relationship.
BLACK BALSAM KNOB ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS
My personal favorite thing about Black Balsam knob is the short hike. Although I do love mountaintop hikes, I know that it’s good when it’s only a short trek up for my clients. Often times they have had their hair and makeup professionally done. So we tend to avoid hikes or walks that involve sweating! This one is a short walk, not too steep, but still has some absolutely killer views. The day we shot these, a storm had just cleared out. Because of this, we got to see the most beautiful rainbow. It was so incredible, it barely fit end-to-end in my camera view. So amazing!
We ended the night with a breathtaking sunset that went down right behind the mountains. It truly was one of the best nights ever!
