I arrived early, and this is what the Biltmore house looks like at 8 am under a lite fog. You cannot see the mountains that are typically behind the house, but in dense fog, you cannot see the house from Diana.
I thought I had the place to myself until I noticed the group of Turkey hens and chicks.
Terry is giving me the thumbs up to make sure I captured the moment. I remain hidden until the last possible second. In most cases, I catch plenty of shots of the actual proposal.
Ohh boy, now he is pointing me out! With a little help from my friendly neighborhood, turkeys, she did not even notice me standing near Diana with a camera. Captured the proposal without ever being seen!
We do a few engagement photos with every surprise proposal package we offer at The Biltmore Estate.
Always try to give them a minute to talk about what just happened!
Early morning light can be spectacular. However, as its transition to the midday sun, it can quickly become harsh. I always try to use the sunlight if possible. I love the glow it creates.
One last look from Diana before we head down to the garden!
This is one of my favorite spots on the estate near the house. There is never anyone here, and it is so beautiful!
Now we see the midday sun is working against us in our photos, never fear we will get the shot!
Using the midday sun to make sure glow! Love it!
Shooting eye level on the ground is one of my favorites to create an intimate close feeling!
This has a film look that some people like, I certainly like the look and feel of this photo.
Congrats guys! Enjoy the rest of your trip to Asheville!
On the way back to my car I found these guys patrolling the lawn again!
