We had wanted to go back to the basics for a some time. While we definitely love the shoots with all the gorgeous details and extra toppings, at the end of the day we’re in it for the people. Strip away the venue and decor and we’re left with what started it all, the couple. In the middle of Pisgah National Forest just outside of Asheville, NC our couple took a moment to disconnect from the rest of the world and simply enjoy each other’s company and reflect on the life they will soon share together.


It started out as a typical styled shoot, model call and all. And then we found Sam. Gorgeous, engaged, and with a hair+makeup trial the morning we were in town, the stars had aligned. This sweet couple hiked the snowy trails, crossed semi-frozen creeks, and danced in the forest to help create some of our absolute favorite images, that we hope you’ll love too!
