In September, I met up with Alvaro & Sasha for an engagement session on Skyline Drive. If you haven’t driven along this road in Shenandoah National Park, you are missing out! It winds along Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains with plenty of scenic views. Basically, a perfect place to take gorgeous photos in nature.
I absolutely LOVED this session. The energy between these two is addictive. They were so incredibly natural in front of the camera. It felt as though they really had forgotten I was there and they were just off on an adventure together.
Everything about this session unfolded so magically. We piled into my car and started the session by driving up Skyline Drive with a plan to hit the overlooks. As we rounded a corner, I saw a single tree alone in a field right as the fog was rolling in. My photographer instincts kicked in, and I immediately stopped the car. Luckily, they were up for running out into the somewhat-wet grass. The images we got from those brief few minutes before the fog dispersed are some of my favorites I have taken this year, and they have me wishing for fog any time that I make my way back to Skyline Drive. After we finished up in the magical fog, we made our way up to the overlook.
While the view from the overlook was gorgeous, I was far more intrigued by the massive overgrowth of greenery we found right next to it. We had planned to finish our session at Great Meadows, and as we made our way back down the mountain I wasn’t expecting to spot some beautiful yellow wildflowers off the side of the road. We all spotted them together and knew we had to stop.
We rounded out the session at Great Meadows where Alvaro & Sasha cuddled up in some wildflowers. We even encountered some deer while we were there! It felt as though every stop we made was its own special kind of magic. All in all, this was one for the books and I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do.
