Fall Photo Series
This blog comes to you from the front porch of Kojay's Cafe in Blowing Rock, NC. Finally finishing up my photo series for this fall, I figured I would stop in to one of my favorite spots, get some coffee, relax and write what is now an overdue blog.
Fall is officially here, and with it comes the changing of the leaves, daylight savings time (meaning I wont see daylight when I get off work until next March) and one of my favorite holidays...Thanksgiving. Despite the shorter days and colder weather, fall is my favorite season, and I would imagine one of the favorites for just about any photographer.
I will admit, even though fall is a great time to shoot, it can be very stressful getting good fall pictures, as you are really at the mercy of mother nature. Sometimes, leaves change and fall off quickly, sometimes it rains every time you attempt to go shoot, and if you want pictures in the mountains then just go ahead and compound the stress. Every fall, I promise myself I am going to make sure I dedicate the time to go out and get some good shots, yet every fall, I get busy (lazy) and don't capitalize on the small window of opportunity. Since I had to make sure I didn't disappoint my many many followers (pretty much just my immediate family), I made it a point to do whatever it took to get a few shots to put up on my site. Just to let you know, it took multiple tries and multiple trips up the mountain, but I finally got a few decent ones!
Recap of this years photo attempts for fall pictures in the mountains:
September 29th - Came up before Appalachian Football Game and It was a downpour of rain so no pictures... ** Did get engaged though!!!
October 6th - Came up for Homecoming - Got a few good pics but not much time to take pictures **friends can really get in the way of things…j/k!
October 22nd - Went to Asheville to scout out wedding location and got a couple pics **Wedding stuff can really get in the way of things... EXTRA J/K Hannah!!!!
October 27th – Came up early for a friends wedding but leaves had pretty much all fallen off and really didn’t get too much. Decided to write this blog instead
So you can see, it is a tough thing to get some good fall pictures in the mountains. Kudos to all you other photographers out there, hope you had some good shooting!!!
 The mountains are on a totally different schedule than everywhere else. The colder temperatures and higher winds give you a very short window to get good pictures of the changing leaves.
Love this post, Brad! Your wedding is going to be beautiful, I'm so excited already! Hope yall are having a great weeked in the mountains! :)
