Gideon Ridge Inn Engagement Pictures in Blowing Rock, NC

After having to reschedule several times due to the unpredictable mountain weather, we finally managed to squeeze in Katelyn & Seth's engagement shoot last week. Initially, they were hoping to do a snowy engagement session but Mother Nature didn't cooperate with us this winter, so we waited.

I checked the forecast, as usual, and it wasn't looking so favorable for later that afternoon so we bumped up the time in hopes of avoiding the storms. And because these two are getting married in just 2 days we had to get their engagement photos done, RAIN or SHINE, this time around!

The Gideon Ridge Inn had a porch, thankfully, that no one was interested in using because of the showers. We didn't mind having the place to ourselves!

We only had about 5-10 minutes each time until the rain started up again, but it was better than nothing!

I'm pretty thankful that we did get to spend some time doing their engagement pictures out in the open with the mountain view because those are my favorite photos from their shoot. After all, the amazing views are the main reason why Katelyn and Seth chose Gideon Ridge for their engagement photo location.

We gained permission to use this lovely venue for their engagement pictures because Seth was in cahoots with the head chef at Gideon Ridge. It's one of Bistro Roca's sister properties which is where Seth works as a chef.

The couple decided to have engagement photos taken because they don't have very many "nice" photos of them together as a couple where they're not making goofy faces or flipping off the camera. ;-)

It wasn't so bad dodging the rain with these two either, it was actually fun. They were troopers, though, that's for sure!
