First of all, I love an adventurous session. Beach session? Mountain session? Yes, please. When we scheduled this Blue Ridge Parkway session the forecast called for random rain, so we bumped the session up an hour. OF COURSE after we did that we had the brightest afternoon we had seen in weeks haha, but we just spend a couple hours taking pics at a few different spots and then made it to Thunder Hill Overlook just in time for a beautiful sunset. For mountain shoots (since the mountains usually hide the actual sun during sunset), I like to catch an overlook a few minutes past sunset time in order to capture the colorful sky. The colors on the Blue Ridge Parkway are stunning at this time- ranging from warm oranges and pastel pinks with some pretty blues usually peeking through.
PS: shoutout to these two for somehow looking like models even with the absolutely insane wind! It was so windy I couldn't even breathe on top of the rocky overlook when I was facing them to take photos. I would take a few photos and then look to my left or right to catch a breath 😂 Insane feeling! But we got the shots 🤍
