Levi and Katerina | Gatlinburg Elopement Photographer

Around winding mountian roads, deep into the heart of the Smoky Mountains, I met Levi and Katerina for their elopement session. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture the elopement but Levi and Katerina wanted it that way; private, intimate, romantic. Just them and the officiant and honestly, I don’t blame them. What a beautiful way to start your life together. This adventurous and beautiful couple lead me up rocks and waterfalls at The Sinks in Gatlinburg. It was like a fairy tale woodland with water and trees and rocks and wildlife. They even shared their first dance in the middle of the woods. I picked a random song on my phone and they danced the whole time - it was magical. I’m so lucky I got to capture these moments right after saying “I Do” for this couple.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the day.
