Alpine Lovers

April 30, 2017

Somewhere off the Blue Ridge Parkway in Asheville NC, is Rough Ridge. It's about a mile hike to the top with some major view payoff. Ashley of Photography Anthology captured these gorgeous engagement shots for Jonathan and I a few weeks ago, and we couldn't be happier with the result. Jonathan and I met hiking. It's an activity that has played a central role in our relationship since day one. Jon proposed to me at the top of a cliff after a hike, so it was only fitting that we found such a place for Ashley to capture our love. 

We are five weeks out until the wedding, and I can hardly believe it. After over a year long engagement, the planning is finally coming together, and it's getting real. Girls, I seriously can't wait to marry this man. He is such a blessing in my life - he makes me laugh daily, and he's my best friend in the whole world. His heart for God moves me - he prays over me and encourages me. Everyday with him is a precious gift.

Without further ado, here is our engagement session! For some extra experience, you can listen to the clip below while you scroll ;). This is a song that really represents Jon and I's relationship for me. It's one that I listened to often when we first started dating.

your photos of the two of you are always so pretty and sweet. That year of engagement was long and short all at once. Long engagements are annoying (I speak from experience).

These are so stunning! I couldn't get over how beautiful they are. The love you two have for each other is so breathtaking, and shows so clearly in these photographs.

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
