David + Nakia | Black Balsam Engagement Shoot

 

David, Nakia, Myself and my friend Ben collectively froze our butts off up at Balsam! The wind was ripping through the valley right up to the bald, where we could literally lean all the way back into the gusts, and be totally stable. These sunny, warm images do not appropriately reflect the vicious nature of the mountain.

The dichotomy of appearance vs. reality reveals itself time and time and TIME again in wedding photography. Collectively, we are striving to do what we think is right and best for us and our loved ones. Despite the confusing weather, the palpable connection between D & N still shines through.
