For their engagement shoot, Steve and Annie wanted to revisit the area where Steve had proposed. Earlier last year, they had planned a hike up to Humpback Rocks along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and when they reached the top, Steve proposed! Months later, their engagement session with me was on a sweltering hot day in August, so we decided not to do the full hike to the top. Instead, we did photos down by the Humpback Rocks Visitors Center, where we found areas full of wildflowers, cool old fences, an old cabin, and plenty of nice places for photos. Then for sunset, we drove ten minutes up the road to Raven's Roost Overlook for some epic mountains photos! Annie had worn flat sandals - a must if you are shooting at the overlook! Thanks to Annie and Steve being very willing to try my suggestions, we got some really exceptional shots. Standing on top of the wall at Raven's Roost, as well as climbing down around the wall is not for the faint of heart! And to get those photos of them immersed in wildflowers...they had to brave some poison ivy which was way too close for comfort, but they climbed over the fence, and got out of there without any poison ivy outbreaks, thank God!! Besides their adventurousness, their love for each other made these photos truly special- I could really feel the love they had when they looked into each other's eyes.
