NC Arboretum Engagement : J + E

Updated: Feb 1

You know how every now and then you’ll end up catching one of those rom coms that just leaves you in a great mood? Not that you were even in a bad one, but you just can’t help but feel that sense of happiness afterwards? I swear to you and Jess and Eugene’s engagement at The North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville was just like that! These two seriously crushed it and besides being ridiculously cute, they are hilarious, and easily as sweet as they come! When they booked us for their wedding this fall at Highland Brewing in Asheville we were definitely pumped, but we were also excited when they told us they wanted to try and do their engagement photos in the fall as well. Sweet relief when we actually ended up having some falls dates open that worked out perfectly! We were also looking forward to visiting the NC Arboretum! If you’ve never had the opportunity to visit this local gem, we can’t recommend it enough. We’ve visited on mountain bike rides connecting from Bent Creek, we’ve been for the holidays to check out the Christmas lights, and we’ve also had the pleasure of visiting for weddings and portraits throughout the years. Each and every time, this scenic location never disappoints! Throw in a little overcast light and a fun loving couple like Jess & Eugene and you’ll soon see why there’s no way this session could not leave you with a smile on your face!

Big congrats to Jess and Eugene, and as always, we hope you all enjoy following along!
