Hold on to your seats people – the amazingness that is Heather & Charlie is coming at you. Seriously, we love these two. They are the sweetest and cutest couple ever! Charlie is deployed in Afghanistan right now. He was home for 2 weeks so they met us for a few photos while he was in town. Can you tell that these two hadn’t seen each other since June! Their love was just so energizing.
We met them first at Mabry Mill – it is close to Primland Resort, where they are getting married – and Charlie’s family is related to the Mabry’s – too perfect! There were all kinds of neat places to shoot. It was a GORGEOUS day in late March, we couldn’t have asked for more comfortable weather to do an engagement session in!
On the property there was this cute little stone and plank cabin – we took advantage of the great light spilling all around it to get some shots.
Heather & Charlie were troopers and were up for anything. This haystack may have been slightly damp. 😉
Heather’s ring was simply AMAZING. Nice job Charlie…
We then headed over to Primland Resort. This is the coolest place ever. First of all, you have to drive so high up in the montains to get there, you begin to wonder if an oxygen tank will be necessary. Second of all, there was no one there. Not a single guest to be seen! The staff (who were super friendly and helpful) explained that they get really busy on the weekends and during the summer. We had the entire place to ourselves to shoot the session. Third, the architecture is just breathtaking – imagine a giant 42 room hunting lodge on top of a mountain which mixes a traditional stone and timber construction with all kinds of modern design flair. Ben and I spent the first 5 minutes walking around the lobby and staring…mouths open.
Admit it, you get this happy when you drink coffee too (especially if it is with your sweetheart, right?)
Oh my! Heather, you are beautiful. This is both Ben and my favorite.
H&C, I expect you both to print these photos out and keep the other’s photo in your wallet.
They had these wood carvings made from an Etsy shop. We were determined to make sure we incorporated them. Love it when people bring props.
Part of the resort is this little Observatory on the top floor – its a round room with a near 360 degree view of the surrounding mountain tops. It also has a really comfy leather couch. I tested it out. 🙂
Another wood carvings from Etsy. I love the quote. Wouldn’t you say your love story is a fairytale too?
Heather and Charlie, it was a blast to spend an afternoon with you! We are beyond excited for your wedding in October! Much love! – S&B
