Fall Engagement at Dupont State Forest in Brevard

Beautiful fall engagement photoshoot at DuPont State Recreational Forest outside of Brevard North Carolina. This was shot near Peak Leaf season for Western North Carolina, and the couple asked for bright photos. As you will see, we managed to get a wide range of colors in this photoshoot at Triple Falls in Dupont State Forest.

As you can tell from the photo, the leaves were definitely in full color at this time; it made for a perfect engagement photoshoot. We offered two different variations of these photos,  one with the bright leaf colors on display and another more muted

This is one of my favorite photos from the photoshoot. He is picking her up in the air holding her above him, and she is looking down towards him. They are on a beautiful hiking trail in DuPont State Forest with excellent leading lines and unique engagement photos.

It’s essential to have a backup plan when planning a proposal or engagement photoshoot at Dupont. If the waterfalls become icy or significant rains, the waterfalls become dangerous—fortunately, several covered areas, including a magnificent covered bridge at DuPont State Forest. The bottom of Triple Falls is generally incredibly safe for a waterfall. 

Another great thing about this area is several other waterfalls within short walking distances, including Hooker Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and High Falls. Hooker Falls is usually our backup plan if the water level is too high to allow us to access Triple Falls safely.  The hiking trails surrounding Hooker Falls are equally as beautiful.
