The Kirkley's Black Balsam Knob Session

These two lovely people got married last July. I not only photographed their wedding, but also their engagement session, just at a year from when we took these photos. I was ecstatic when they proposed the idea to take a hike along the Blue Ridge Parkway in their wedding attire. It was so great to catch up with them and hear how married life is treating them. It makes me so happy that I can pick back up with couples and enjoy an afternoon exploring their new life together. 

Their engagement session was scheduled at sunrise last Spring so we could get some great sunshine. But when we got there, everything was covered in fog. It made for incredible photos, but we had our fingers crossed for sun during this post-wedding session. Nature gave them every kind of weather imaginable. Sunshine, rain, fog, TWO rainbows, my favorite sunny-but-cloudy light, and giant melting icicles from a previous snowstorm. Clearly with this variety, I couldn't just post a handful. So here are my absolute favorites from one of my favorite 2015 couples!
