Sometimes you make plans for the perfect mountain elopement and then there’s a 95% chance of thunderstorms. Spring in Asheville can be pretty damp and this year is no exception. But when it comes to wedding days, the show must go on and I’m so grateful for adventurous clients who are up for wandering in the rain in their wedding clothes. Vanessa and Rob were in town from Florida just for a day, so we went for it and I’m so glad we did! We started at the NC Arboretum just to be safe and then headed up the parkway. At the first turn, we drove straight into a cloud! At first we were all disappointed not to get mountain views, but when we pulled over at an overlook and ventured out into the fog we all got more and more excited. The resulting images are some of my favorite elopement portraits I’ve taken. These two have such a deep and intimate connection, they were a joy to photograph. Congrats, Vanessa and Rob, and may your new life together always be full of taking chances and having them pay off big time.
