I still remember the day we met Christina and Jacob earlier in the year. Well, not the actual day, my memory is quite terrible, but the time with them for sure! We were sitting outside at Trade and Lore in downtown Asheville sipping on quite amazing coffee while getting to know them and learn more about the vision for their wedding day! We discussed their wants, their likes, and we talked briefly about their engagement session. We probably would’ve had another round of caffeine but they also had some cake tastings lined up same day so we definitely didn’t want to get in the way of that :)
After about a week Christina and Jacob locked down the vision for their engagement session and they let us know that Christina wanted something scenic in the mountains and Jacob wanted to hit up Burial Beer Co. in Asheville for some of their engagement. Can you say win win? Of course we were stoked about making it happen and we started figuring out the timing how we could make it work and when would be good for them! When that beautiful Friday in June finally arrived we couldn’t have been more pleased as were watching the weather reports like hawks and even with a high chance of rain, everything blew on by! The warm weather, cold brews, and laid back atmosphere at Burial brewery made for a fun start to their engagement! (And in case you’re wondering we lost track of the score but we’re pretty sure Christina beat Jacob in corn hole)
Afterwards it was off to the mountains to capture some of the beautiful scenery our WNC area is known for! Initially we were planning on going to Craggy Gardens but with all the rainfall in recent weeks, apparently that part of the parkway had been shut down for a few days (ugh!). Thankfully there’s more than one awesome place to shoot around here and last minute we were able to adjust and take them to Black Balsam Knob. Black Balsam is always one of our favorite places to shoot and on this evening, it was heavenly! Between the oh so perfect lighting, their chemistry on camera, and a beautiful sunset, we couldn’t have asked for a better way to end the night!
Now the 4 month wait until their wedding day in October! Though the time always seems to fly by, we are counting down the days!
Thanks as always for following along!
