Hawksbill Mountain Engagement Session | Linville Gorge Wilderness

Couple hikes the side of Hawksbill Mountain during their Linville Gorge Engagement Session

Hawksbill Mountain in Linville Gorge Wilderness is one of the most gorgeous places to have your engagement photos taken in the Boone NC area! I’ve photographed quite a few adventure engagement sessions in Linville Gorge and it never disappoints. I absolutely love taking my adventurous couples up to Hawksbill, the last bit of trail is fairly steep but I promise it’s worth it! The view from the top is so stunning that you can visibly see the look of awe on my couples faces as you crest the top of rocks and see Linville gorge falling away below.

This August evening in Linville Gorge was no different; we were graced with stunning views and beautiful sun light danced across the mountaintops.

North Carolina is full of amazing, wild places that are stunningly beautiful!

Abby and Austin brought their pup Sadie, I absolutely love when couples choose to include their dog in engagement session, especially when their dog is a well behaved as Sadie was!

Im not sure Sadie loved watching her parents dance on the edge of Hawksbill Mountain but she was all about snuggling!

As the sun went down the moon came out and the light was simply beautiful! We soaked in every last bit of light before hiking back down the mountain in the dark!
