Adventure session in the Blue Ridge mountains of Roanoke, Virginia

Where to even begin with this post? These two beautiful humans met me off the Blue Ridge Parkway to run around in the rolling hills and take a dip in the creek for their adventure session. I am honored to get to shoot their wedding day this coming August and I’m so excited!

I mean, how stinking cute are they?! Shaylee and Chad ran around with me for about 3 hours just laughing and having the best time taking in some views. We started their session at a random park that had tall grass and mountain views on our way to Explore Park.

The beauty of an adventure session is how carefree and laid back they are. If you’re big into hiking and have always wanted those stunning mountaintop photos with your significant other, then this session is perfect for you. Want to spend the day on the lake, boating and swimming, and have all of that captured? Let’s make it a date. When you inquire about an adventure session with me, you’ll fill out a questionnaire so that I can get to know you guys better and know what you like. From there, I help you plan out the perfect day and we make a date of it!

Anyways, these two crushed this session. The creek was freezing but they still got in and made the most of it! Check out more of my work here.

    Growing up in a one stoplight town in Virginia, surrounded by mountains and vast landscapes, the outdoors have always been my home. Between being by the creek bed catching crawdads and spending all my free time in the open fields of wildflowers, those Blue Ridge mountains is where my life of adventure began.
