Chetola Resort Engagement Session | Morgan & Jake 


January 3, 2023

There’s nothing I love more than visiting some of my favorite places while taking engagement photos for one of my couples! Morgan and Jake’s gorgeous Chetola Resort engagement session was paired with a stop at Rough Ridge on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was truly a dream come true for a fall engagement session – and I loved every minute of visiting these beautiful locations.

I LOVE Chetola Resort! This gorgeous venue in Blowing Rock, NC has it all. We started Morgan and Jake’s engagement photos here and it was definitely the right call. Morgan wore a gorgeous green gown that looked amazing against the fall colors. We spent a lot of time along the water at Chetola Resort. I just love how it looked!! Afterwards, it was time to head to the Blue Ridge Parkway. 

There, we hiked Rough Ridge with their Bernese Mountain dog, Jackson. I think he had a great time, too! The colors were unreal. I kept telling Morgan and Jake they would have an iconic fall gallery. Everything was just so beautiful – especially the red leaves. Oh my goodness!! They looked amazing. I’m so happy that Morgan and Jake suggested doing this hike to end their engagement session. It was so worth it. 

Congratulations again, Morgan and Jake! I can’t wait to spend more time with you for your wedding day! 

See a recent wedding at the gorgeous Chetola Resort!
