Donny + Willow’s Max Patch Engagement Photos

Sunset Engagement Photos

Our adventure began in the heart of the Pisgah National Forest, where we hiked to the summit of Max Patch together. This provided the perfect opportunity to connect with Donny and Willow, and to learn more about this amazing couple. When we got to the meadow part of the hike, we hung there for a moment to take in the beauty of what we were surrounded by.

These two exuded a free-spirited vibe, sharing a love for hiking, quality time with their dogs, and, most importantly, each other. Donny and Willow gave us full creative control, but the genuine affection they had for one another stole the show and outshined anything we could have asked them to do.

A Breathtaking Max Patch Sunset

The weather at Max Match could not have been more perfect, as God blessed us with the most spectacular sunset. We strolled through the meadow fields, playing tag and taking in the expansive views of open farmland and majestic mountains. The tranquility of the surroundings allowed us to pause, absorbing the sheer beauty of it all.

Intimate Moments at Dusk

We concluded the session with them cuddling, watching the sunset unfold. The cold breeze made the cuddles even more natural and heartwarming as they soaked in the last moments of daylight.
