Adventure Engagement in Cades Cove - Anne + Chris
These two met through a co-worker when Chris moved to Knoxville, and their first encounter was with Anne's family on Thanksgiving. A little later after their friendship blossomed, they started dating, and now, Anne and Chris are on their biggest adventure yet together to becoming Mr. and Mrs. Hatfield.
A self-proclaimed outdoorsy couple, these two enjoy being in the mountains and traveling with one another. Chris proposed to Anne while on a trip to Colorado with their friends over New Year's Eve weekend, and they knew that the national park would serve as the perfect sentimental location for their fun engagement session back home.
As we initially met Anne and Chris outside of the loop entrance to Cade's Cove, we were immediately impressed that they brought along his Land Rover as a prop for their session. Since Anne is basically a wildlife expert (even being able to identify birds by their call) and Chris's first love is the national parks, we knew that our time with them was going to be amazing. The mountains had to be featured , and we loved that they incorporated not only the perfect camping outfits to express their interests but also a picnic basket filled with everything one would need for a romantic date exploring the Cove. We were able to capture some gorgeous shots of the two at sunset dancing, flirting, and laughing, and we appreciate that they followed our advice to be casual but also dress it up a bit too. Utter perfection!
This is a session that we will never forget because it was truly all about the couple's hobbies and love for nature-- and of course each other. We're traveling to The Great Smoky Mountains and Cade's Cove today with this mountainside engagement. Enjoy!
