The best places in the area for portraits 

Here in the High Country we have so many beautiful options for photos. As a photographer I always strive to create photos that highlight this beauty. Now, as I shoot portraits, my objective is to capture each client while also bringing attention to the amazing land around us. This being said, I'm willing to drive to any variety of locations to photograph you. Listed below are a few of many locations I like to capture, you can mention one of these options when booking your shoot, or can suggest one of your own.

 

Moses Cone 

Moses Cone, best known for the large Moses Cone Manor, open fields, and easy to walk trail, creates a great atmosphere for portraits on a less popular week day.

Hawksbill Mountain

Hawksbill Mountain is placed far above the Linville Gorge close to Morganton, NC. Although a strenuous hike and a backroad drive, the stunning landscape will wow in the background of your photos.

Drive Time from Boone: 1 Hour

Hike Difficulty: Hard 

Pull Off on the Parkway

This hidden pull of North on the Blue Ridge Parkway is a stunning location to grab some photos with very little drive or walk time.

Sim's Pond Trail on The Blue Ridge Parkway

Although this location is well hidden by a rather difficult hike the open field and tall grass are perfect for "Golden Hour" portrait sessions. With a good half mile uphill hike it can be challenging but pays off for the view.

Linn Cove Viaduct Hike

This small hike is rewarded with a beautiful view of the Linn Cove Viaduct on the parkway, and on a unpopular weekday can provide a priceless background highlighting one of the most well-known views in the state.
