Elizabeth & Caleb’s Paint Creek Engagement Session
“Our first date was to see “Dumb and Dumber Too.” We barely talked because we were both so nervous, and it took until the end of the movie to even hold hands.
However, when we left, we remember that we were both so excited for what was to come in our future together.”
It was such a pleasure to meet Elizabeth and Caleb and shoot their Paint Creek Engagement Session just south of Greeneville, TN. I haven’t had the opportunity of shooting many sessions in the Greeneville area, so when Elizabeth reached out and wanted to have a session near their home, I was stoked! I’m so glad that she and Caleb wanted to show me some new locations that also meant a lot to them as a couple. Check out these beautiful photos captured in the Cherokee National Forest down by Paint Creek.
Paint Creek Engagement Session
I couldn’t have asked more for Elizabeth and Caleb’s Paint Creek Engagement Session. A beautiful stream, waterfalls, beautiful spring wildflowers, and high points with epic views. Hope I can get over there again soon! The title “Adventure Engagement Session” really lived up to its name at this location. We were in the creek wading around, hiking up the crumbly trail to see the Nolichucky River, and crossing beautiful old bridges were just some of the highlights.
As always, I will let the photos speak for themselves…
