Beacon Heights Overlook Trail, Linville Falls, NC Engagement Photo Session

Beacon Heights Overlook Engagement Session in Linville Falls, NC

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve blogged, but it feels good to be back and to share one of our favorite engagement sessions from last year at the Beacon Heights Overlook Trail outside of Boone, NC.

Nick and Taylor booked us for their wedding here in Tampa at the stunning Orlo House all while living in Raleigh, NC and planning from afar. We spent a lot of time talking about life in North Carolina and how much fun it would be to shoot engagement photos somewhere in North Carolina and somewhere on the Blue Ridge Parkway overlooking the stunning mountain views that North Carolina encompasses.

Aaron and I spent a lot of time hunting around on the All Trails App trying to find the perfection location and ultimately decided on Beacon Heights Overlook for the mountain views, the lighting, the distance for Nick and Taylor to drive, the easy access on and off of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the rocky hillside.

We met Nick and Taylor in March of last year and hiked the short little hike to the top of Beacon Heights. Not only was it a fairly easy hike to the top, the view at the top was jaw dropping. On that particular day that we did Nick and Taylor’s engagement session, there was no one there and we had the entire space to ourselves. What we didn’t account for was how chilly and cold it would be in March in the mountains of North Carolina!! We spent a lot of our session taking photos, pausing, wrapping up in blankets, jumping up and down to get warm and then taking more pictures and repeating the whole process all over!

It may have been incredibly cold at the top of that Blue Ridge Parkway overlook, but Nick and Taylor were the sweetest, biggest troopers and the most fun wedding clients of ours! They were so down to earth, so kind, so sweet and so much fun to work with! They made our engagement session so worth the numb hands and toes and their wedding was hands down one of our favorites from last year that we can’t even wait to share with you all!!

Nick and Taylor-Thank you so much for making the drive to us, braving the cold and hiking Beacon Heights Overlook with us. We loved every single second we got with you both and have some of the best 2021 moments with you both!!
