Having a Biltmore annual pass has been one of the best things for me! I love going to Biltmore to do engagement sessions, so when couples ask me about it I can say YES! Alexis and Cole had a fun trip planned for their dating anniversary to Biltmore. After he proposed, and on our consult call she asked if I was able to shoot their engagement session while they were there. Anytime anyone says Biltmore I am down.

Although Biltmore is a little extra busy from October through December, we were able to make their session work. The best time to shoot at Biltmore is as late as possible, on a weekday in non-busy months (like September!)

Alexis & Cole brought the message in a bottle that he used to propose to Alexis with, so I was so happy to include that in their session. I told them to absolutely bring it with to include in their details on their wedding day as well.

Biltmore and I are great friends now (except those hills!) so it’s easy for me to hit and the spots.

I can not wait for their wedding at The Sutherland in May!
