Adventurous Elopement Experience
Jess and Nick are some of the coolest humans you can meet. They’ve traveled the world together, and they’re incredible artists. This sweet couple spent many nights camping and adventuring at Black Balsam Knob in their early dating days. It was really special to experience this place that held so many of their memories and create a new one together. It was cold on top of the mountain and they snuggled up until the light was perfect, and then they braved the wind for golden hour. I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to get to know them and document this day.
