The Biltmore Estates is located in Asheville NC. I love this venue for all it's history and huge charm. Nothing is done in small measures and it offers so much to a visitor, and a photographer. From the huge vistas, the huge mansion, the Inn, the village, the horse back riding and much, much more. It's a pleasurable drive from Raleigh and well worth the journey.
I met Katie and Ren at the Biltmore where we got started on their engagement session. Knowing the estate really well, I planned their shoot locations based on the best light and the stunning views. One thing I do at this location is attempt to make it look void of visitors. As you can imagine, it's one busy venue.
Once we finished at the Biltmore, we headed up the Blue Ridge Parkway to an amazing location called Craggy Gardens. It's a short drive through the mountains and then a short hike to the top of the look out. Once at the look out, the 360 degree views are simply stunning and a perfect way to end the engagement session.
