Kristin & David’s Engagement Portraits at Biltmore Estate, NCNovember 16, 2009

Emily and I are suckers! (Allow me to explain) We agreed last year to not only limit the amount of weddings we shoot a year (so that we can really focus our attention on each couple and provide a quick turnaround) but also to avoid booking anything on our birthdays or anniversary (so we could focus on ourselves for a few days a year). Then along came Kristin and David who are getting married on September 25th, Emily’s birthday. What can we say, we loved their personalities, their ideas for their waterfall-themed wedding and we loved the fact that they loved us! So we caved. And after their engagement session, we are so glad we did. These two have so much fun together that you can’t help but have fun when you are around them. If they were this excited and happy at the engagement session, we can only imagine how much more they will be on their wedding day. We’re afraid someone’s head may explode from exuberance. See what we mean in some of our favs below and be sure to check out the slideshow at the bottom.

Since they are having a waterfall-themed wedding, we all thought it apropos to do part of their session at a beautiful waterfall.
We were so glad these adventurous spirits were willing to brave life and limb to get up close to the mighty falls….. OK so it wasn’t that dangerous but we appreciated it anyway.

The stone on this building was such a vibrant shade of green, apparently from algae. Kind of a gross thought but very cool looking.

Poor Dave getting denied some smoochin’! Don’t worry, he made up for it later.

After the falls, they wanted to go to the Biltmore Estate.

Love the tenderness in this one.

Love the genuine laugh in this one.

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful, clear Fall day.

Love David’s face in the right shot. Once they saw it, we all started calling it the “Arrrr” face.

Sometimes the not-so-obvious places make for great images.

Without clouds in the sky, sunsets tend to be fairly tame with only one or two colors, but if you catch it at just the right moment, those colors seem to explode and fill the sky.
