Kelsey & Chris | Engagement

Kelsey and Chris wanted to take advantage of the beautiful VA fall colors (can you blame them?!), so I drove up to meet them at Big Meadows Lodge. I had never been to the Lodge before, so I didn’t know what to expect. However, I had driven all up and down Skyline Drive while I was at JMU, so I knew it was going to be beautiful. I was SUPER pumped for this location before I had even seen it.

We met at the lodge and the first thing we did was climb a mountain. Granted, it was a tiny path up a small part of a very large mountain, BUT it was steep and treacherous and quite the hike. But the view at the top. . . worth it !

I could have stayed there all day !wpK&C-65 We pried ourselves away from the beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains to find more beautiful scenic views. We walked about 50 feet into the woods to find some glorious sunlight coming through the fall trees.

It was a really touching story and the location was absolutely beautiful on top of the sentimental ties.

I had such a blast shooting with Kelsey and Chris on Skyline Drive. I absolutely love VA and am so excited to be going back next year for their wedding day !
