Carla & Brandon’s Roan Mountain Engagement Session
Every time I go to do a Roan Mountain Engagement Session I am so excited to be able to provide a totally unique experience with each couple. The mountain is so big that the possibilities are endless on shots to take and places to visit! The same can be said about Carla and Brandon’s shoot! It was the first time I have been up there in a while with the weather actually being warm. Ha! It is end of April and finally the wind wasn’t biting!
The warm afternoon light was perfect and Carla and Brandon were so much fun to work with. Can’t wait to shoot their wedding in Charleston, SC later this year! As always, I will let the photos do the talking. After you check out the photos, be sure to stick around for the Couple’s Q&A at the end.
