Craggy Gardens Engagement : K + J

Updated: Jan 26

Katie and Jason had their engagement session at one of our absolute favorite locations this fall, Craggy Gardens! If you’ve never been, it’s a quick trip from downtown Asheville, NC about 40 minutes on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. Once you arrive, don’t be discouraged, there is a little hike, but in terms of ratio of hike to view, this is easily one of the best bang for your buck hikes in WNC. For most people it will likely take 10-12 minutes if you’re very fit, and a little longer this is your first hike in a while. Of course if you’re visiting with us, we’ll likely stop every few minutes because photography ADD is a thing :) Thankfully for us, Katie and Jason didn’t mind too much and these two trusted us every step of the way. We’re always grateful for that trust our couples put into us to capture their memories! For us, Jason and Katie made some of the best mountaintop memories! The fall color that day was exceptional for 6,000+ feet, the light was perfect, and these to were fuego! Jason and Katie’s playful chemistry and lighthearted nature helped these two fall into place with almost no effort. When all of these ingredients are present you can be sure you’re going to be in for an amazing evening at Craggy! Big congrats to Katie and Jason and we hope you all enjoy following along!
