A Country Christmas Part 1: The Holidays in Appalachia

You Don’t Always Get a Snowy Christmas in Appalachia

Over the Christmas break, we found our way to two of our favorite shooting areas, the southern mountains of Appalachia and the rugged seacoast of New England.  Over the course of our trip, we took several excursions to a variety of locations, some new to us and others old and familiar.  We began our photo adventure by exploring Appalachia – specifically southwestern Virginia and eastern Tennessee.  As part of a family trip, we headed to Pigeon Forge for our first-erver trip to Dollywood.  Though we didn’t bring in the big cameras, our faithful ol’ waterproof Sony provided a handy way to document this colorful piece of Christmas in Appalachia (above).

While in Virginia, we took to the back roads and forgotten paths of the region in search of new vignettes to photograph.  While exploring this corner of Appalachia, we visited a grand waterfall, found some great farm scenes on a foggy afternoon, and stumbled upon this old slat barn (above), just as the sun was setting in the hollow.  You never quite know what you’re going to find when you set out to explore – but you seldom return home empty handed.   Such was the case with our last Appalachia excursion of the visit, as we summited White Top Mountain and did some hiking in search of the perfect shot.  As you can see from the photos in the gallery below, the cloud lawyer was a few hundred feet below the summit, filling the valley like a picturesque quilt of fluffy cotton.

As always, please feel free to download as many photos as you like – we have sized the photos to 1080P HD wallpaper, perfect for your desktop, laptop, tablet or TV – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends and help us get the word out!

Ghislaine & Anthony’s Festive & Fun St Augustine Wedding!

2012 12 Anthony & Ghislaine 11

This was our last wedding before the New Year.  We’ve had a wonderful 2012 and are looking with anticipation to the many things in store for us in 2013.  And we hope you have an awesome 2013 as well!  So, for our last wedding of the year, we ventured down to St Augustine to photograph Anthony & Ghislaine’s gorgeous wedding and dinner reception (at Cathedral Basilica of St Augustine and Ninety-Five Cordova respectively).  This intimate gathering was perfectly set in the picturesque holiday-lit historic St Augustine, making for some great photo opportunities.
