Black Balsam Knob Anniversary Session

Oh, my windiness! I met Hannah and Connor at Black Balsam Knob along with everyone else in Western North Carolina it seemed. It was a busy Sunday afternoon on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Parkway is gorgeous this time of year with all the leaves changing. Its a wonderful drive on a Sunday afternoon. Spanning from Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina up to Virginia the Blue Ridge Parkway is a band of road that zigzags through the region’s lively living traditions.

I have never been to the top of the ridge when it was too windy to shoot before. I was amazed at how fast and hard the wind was blowing…a challenge for sure! However, Hannah and Connor were amazing. We walked down off the top of the ridge to get out of the wind, but still captured magic for these two! I just love Hannah’s long hair blowing in the wind.

About Hannah + Connor

Hannah and Connor shared their first anniversary on September 16th. They planned a weekend getaway to Asheville, but had to reschedule for October due to Hurricane Florence! So we met this past weekend. They spent time visiting local breweries and of course the Biltmore. A great city for a getaway for sure. Asheville is growing mountain city that features a hip and eclectic downtown, many art galleries, a fresh culinary scene, thriving live music and, of course, the inspirational scenery of the Appalachian Mountains.
Connor and Hannah met six years ago, it was her senior year of high school. The two dated while Hannah was at school at UNCW and then ECU. And Connor was home in Wilson working as a barber in his family barbershop. Connor loves to hunt, fish, and pretty much anything else outdoors. He’s also a great cook! Hannah enjoys sewing, quilting, scrapbooking and doing DIY projects around the house.
