Waking at 4am to meet and photograph Nick and Damaris was so worth it. We headed first to Craggy Gardens and after a short hike and photographing them for about 10 minutes, we realized the summit was not ideal to have the whole session there due to the slanted ground so we headed to Rough Ridge which is about a 7 minute drive and made it to the top of Rough Ridge with enough time to have the whole space to ourselves before the crowds rolled in. I think I could photograph sessions in NC forever and ever. The mountains views make for perfect photo backdrops. Scroll to see my favorites from their magical sunrise session.
