Winter Adventure Engagement Session at Roan Mountain 2022

Corteney & Michael Adventure Engagement Session at Roan Mountain

March 8, 2022

Engagement Session at Roan Mountain

Second, on the balds, the snow was not too deep, but there was a really cool wind-blown effect on all of the plants.   All of the blades of grass and plants had about an inch of snow/ice attached to them on one side.  So clearly the wind had been so strong up there recently, but for our shooting time at least, it was perfect.

All in all, we had fun and created a really unique engagement session gallery for Corteney and Michael.  As always, I will never say no to shooting an Adventure Engagement Session at Roan Mountain!

Be sure to stick around till the end of the blog to read about the Couple's Q&A.  Enjoy!

Corteney and Michael's Winter Adventure Engagement Session at Roan Mountain was so much fun! Even though it was cold on the mountain, the wind was surprisingly calm.  There was virtually no wind chill, and that makes a huge difference when you are on the top of these mountain balds at 5800 feet elevation.

As we made our way up the mountain there were some really cool aspects that stood out to me.  First off, there was more ice on the trail than I have ever seen!  Some areas were more than three inches thick.  It must have been thawing and refreezing over and over to get to that thickness.

COUPLE'S Q&A

Future Wedding Date and Venue

Date of the Session & Location

October 16, 2022. The Steel Magnolia Barn in Murfreesboro, TN

02/05/2022

When and where did you go on your first date?

How did Y'all meet?

Michael and I first met in college at Tennessee Tech University, he was friends with our neighbors. We both liked each other but we were too nervous to tell each other. We lost connection and dated other people. After dating we both reconnected and told each other how we felt about each and the rest is history :)

Our first date was at the movie theater

How did you fall in love?

Tell me about your first date together?

Michael really wanted to go get coffee but it was super late (9pm) and so we changed our plans and went to the movies instead. During the movies I actually ended up falling asleep. I am still notorious for falling asleep during a movie

We really fell in love when we first saw each other but was too nervous to tell each other how we felt. Apparently it was very obvious to our friends around us.

What are you most excited about for your wedding?

When and where did he/she propose?

Michael and I took a trip to California in August of 2021. We had a dinner date at a restaurant and after the dinner Michael drove us to a overlook view of the Golden Gate Bridge and he proposed at sunset

We are most excited to become husband and wife and have our loved ones around us to celebrate

How have you grown as a couple since you first started dating?

We have grown so much as a couple. We have learned how to communicate, STRENGTHs of each other and parenting our puppy

Favorite quirk about each other?

How do you feel most loved by your partner?

Corteney's favorite quirk about Michael is how he laughs and tilts his head back and puts his hand on his stomach. Michael's favorite quirk about Corteney is how she tilts her head and smirks

Too much to list. It is a feeling and it is hard to put into words

What were first impressions of each other?

Both really liked each other
