As I was gearing up for Cate + Emerich’s e-session at Camp Highlander, I located the gourmet picnic basket that was given to Scott and I as a wedding gift. Needless to say, it had never been used in eight years. I packed a bottle of wine and all of my favorite lenses for this shoot. From tee pees to puppies, this shoot was awesome! Cate even rode bareback on her beautiful horse. Many thanks to Blossoms at Biltmore Park for the bouquet that added the perfect touch to the session. We ended the shoot with a picnic and I stepped back to give some privacy for these sweet moments. These are my favorite images. Authentic love.
I can’t wait to work with Verge Events on their swanky, Camp Highlander wedding in September.
I’m going to plan a time for Scott and I to use this picnic basket, very soon. There is something about a blanket in the grass, sunshine on your face, and knowing you married your best friend.
