This was my first trip up to The Beauty Spot in Erwin, Tennessee. It's a grassy bald where the Appalachian Trail crosses over the Unaka Mountains with breathtaking mountain views. Abby and Nick enjoy hiking together in their spare time, but had also never been to The Beauty Spot. This was the perfect opportunity to explore the area together for their engagement session.
Abby and Nick are doing things in their own way. They've never had an "official" or "traditional" proposal, but rather decided mutually that they're going to spend the rest of their lives together. This path to marriage has become more popular and accepted over the last few years, and I applaud them for doing things the way their way- with their hearts guiding them. They plan to marry next year and are in the process of buying their first home together.
Two gorgeous people, breathtaking mountain views, and goldenrods for days. What's not to love? Here are a few of my favorite images from their engagement session.
