The beauty to some of the most dreamy engagement sessions is in their simplicity. Monica Ellerbrock & Ike Belk wanted their fall engagement session to echo their wedding locale, a place a touch outdoorsy, rustic in spirit while nestled into the woods. Out of context it might sound like the description to a thousand possible places, but if I said the movie title, ‘Dirty Dancing’ would it start to become much clearer?! Monica & Ike are getting married at the very same mountain resort that Dirty Dancing was filmed at, Mountain Lake in Virginia, which I could not love the idea of this more! To capture each sweet moment, the couple enlisted North Carolina wedding photographer Kelly Rae Stewart Photography for both their fall engagement session as well as their wedding. The trio found the perfect North Carolina locale to emulate their future Virginia retreat surroundings on the most delicious of golden hour sun filled days yet! The result is a wonderfully sweet, well styled fall engagement shoot that plays up the smitten moments between the two all while harnessing the artful delight that is a sun drenched late afternoon.
