Peter + Ellen’s engagement session was a “destination engagement session” for all of us - I drove in from Blacksburg, Ellen came in from Greenville, North Carolina, and Peter came in all the way from England! We met up at a beautiful piece of property in Hillsville owned by Ellen’s parents that had a stunning stream running through it, lots of slate, and moss everywhere. We froze our buns off, but it was so worth it - don’t rule out winter engagement sessions, the trees don’t have to be in bloom to get good photos and the freezing cold temps give you an extra reason to snuggle up in photos. Peter and Ellen will be getting married in the Outer Banks of North Carolina this summer. They will be incorporating driftwood into their decor so I thought it was extra cool that we got some photos inside of a fallen tree.
