Engagement Session at a Secret Waterfall | North Carolina Waterfall Engagement Adventure

January 5, 2019

There are so many things I want to say about this amazing western North Carolina waterfall engagement session out in western North Carolina. I met Kate and Matt that day in extreme north Georgia and drove winding roads the entire way and over the state line to this lesser known spot somewhere out in the forest. I was so thrilled when the two of them decided on this place out of the list of suggested locations I sent to them to consider for their engagement session. It’s a personal favorite of mine. We left the rock house as the light was fading, all with full hearts.

When I first met them, Matt told me about the time he proposed. He did it while the two of them were out in the lake, literally. I mean, that takes serious guts right there! I’d be so nervous doing that hoping not to drop the ring and lose it forever. I asked him how long he had the ring and how many times he was going to propose before he actually did, and he said just once. But apparently Kate didn’t even know about this just once before that moment. But he looked at her across from me there at the coffee table that day and shook his head at her and told her she was in a mood. And we all busted out laughing at that point because we’re sure he was probably right on that one.

Kate, Matt, this adventure, and the conversations we shared made such a big impact on me. Made me even more excited than I previously was to photograph their upcoming wedding. Happens every time. Cheers to all the good things in life and going for them!
