Can we just agree that fall is easily the best time of the year?!? …Okay, you don’t have to agree with me… But I certainly think fall is the best time of the year! Fall in Western NC, more particularly Asheville and the surrounding mountains, is just gorgeous. Matt and I had recently moved to Asheville to start our adventure as Asheville wedding photographers when Heidi reached out to us about meeting up for an engagement session! They were traveling down to the Carolinas from NYC for just a few days to celebrate a friends wedding here in Asheville and Heidi was excited to surprise Andrew with some pictures of the two of them together in his hometown! Fast forward a few weeks later and we met Heidi and Andrew at the gorgeous North Carolina Arboretum for their engagement session. We had a blast exploring the Arboretum which has a fantastic amount of variety! Not only is Heidi beautiful and Andrew handsome but they couldn’t stop smiling throughout the whole session… Really, the serious pictures (there are a few), we had to tell them to stop smiling… Needless to say they made our work pretty easy…

Matt and I love traveling for weddings so we were super excited when these two asked us if we’d like join them in NYC this summer to photograph their wedding… Did I mention they are getting married on a cruise boat in the New York harbor?! So much fun!! We’ve photographed a couple other boat weddings, having the NYC skyline in the background should be pretty unbeatable! couple holding hands fall NC Arboretum engagement session NC Arboretum pathway with engaged couple holding hands bride to be engagement ring fall asheville engagement couple laughing fall engagement nc arboretum fall engagement photo asheville arboretum stylish couple laughing during fall engagement photos in asheville nc beautiful engagement ring against white sweater stylish couple at nc arboretum amphitheater steps  black and white moody silhouette of couple kissing young couple fall foliage at nc arboretum couple goofs off on wall at nc arboretum in asheville couple poses in front of beautiful building at nc arboretum young couple in colorful gardens during engagement pictures nc arboretum young couple arm wrestles during fall engagement at nc arboretum couple kiss in grass during fall asheville engagement session
