Koree+Ashleeann Engagement

A snowy, spring engagement session at Grayson Highlands State Park.

Mountain top, 50 degrees, and a little snow on the ground with these two makes for an epic engagement session. I seriously had the hardest time picking the images to share and to be honest I really didn’t narrow it down so be prepared for image overload.

This is the session Ashleeann and I have been planning for almost a year. After rescheduling for rain, snow and then lots of cold weather I was beginning to wonder if this was going to ever happen. There was still snow on the ground from the winter storm that hit on Friday but the sun was shining and dare I say it felt nice when we arrived at Grayson Highland State Park.

When you go to the park you can’t help but hope for wild ponies but when you get the sunset and weather like we did you don’t even think twice about the ponies. Koree and Ashleeann laughed, danced…which resulted in more laughter and shared in lots of sweet moments. The way these two can get lost in the moment with each other took my breath away.

Rainy day engagement session at Sugar Hollow

How perfect that today is the seventh year anniversary for this adorable couple? As soon as I realized that I knew I had to get their blog up.

I met Koree and Ashleeann over a year ago during my Christmas tree farm sessions. I will never forget how amazed I was by their crazy adorable and well behaved dogs. I remember asking Ashleeann if she could come train my son to listen as well as their dogs did! I told them as part of their session they might feel a little bit crazy but to just have fun with it and trust me. Talk about being over the moon when she contacted me a few months later when they got engaged.

We had been planning the details of her and Koree’s engagement session at Grayson Highlands for months but the weather had other plans. Ashleeann and I were crossing our fingers and toes but it wasn’t enough. When you get your hair and make up done the last thing you want to do is waste it so we quickly came up with an alternative plan.

With my umbrella in hand we trekked through the park at Sugar Hollow in Bristol. We had a small window before the heavy rain hit and I knew the trees would give us enough protection so that we wouldn’t get soaked. Seriously whose hair looks this amazing in the rain? To top it off Ashleeann walked the entire trail in her heels. Dedication!

This sessions has me even more anxious for their session at Grayson Highlands. I’m envisioning lots of warm sunshine and hopefully some wild ponies.
