When this question pops up, people generally think of the best season to visit.
Autumn is easily the busiest time of year for leaf-lookers. The Blue Ridge Parkway will be crowded.
Spring is cool and, often, wet. The greenery starts to pop like you’ve never seen around mid-May.
The higher you go on your adventure during the winter, the more snow you may see. And ice.
And summer here can be hot and humid but generally the heat waves tend to break.
That being said, I’m here to chat about when during the day you’d like to elope!
The early morning dusk tends to be my favorite. If you’re looking for a cool, grayish blue day, then you’ll agree that mornings rock. You also tend to beat crowds.
Midday is usually the harshest. The crowds are out and so is the sun. The sun reaching out overheard can produce a rough day for a photographer. But, we make it work.
The evenings just before sunset are a crowd favorite. It is very romantic and the warm golden glow sets the scene.
What kind of mood are you hoping to set during your elopement?
