Roan Mountain, TN Engagement Session | Jared + Katie

Jared and Katie were my last session of 2018 and I couldn't have dreamed of a better session to close out the  year with. 

On Christmas Eve, this newly engaged couple took me on my first adventure up to Roan Mountain. We were limited with shooting time due to the holidays and spending time with our families, and not to mention Jared had to catch a flight right after Christmas! These two have endured one of the longest distance relationships that I've heard of (from China to Virginia!), so I was honored to be able to photograph them while they had some time together.

As we started our hike, I started to feel like I was back in Alaska! It was only 20°F (warm for Alaska, cold for Tennessee) and the mountain was covered in snow. Luckily, they brought along some hot coffee and cozy blankets. We made it just in time to catch the sunset with a few stops along the way. 

Thank you, Jared and Katie, for reaching out to me for your engagement photos! I will always love this session!
