Erica + Chris // Rock Climbing Engagement at Seneca Rocks, WV

I honestly don’t even know where to start with this session. It was, hands-down, one of my absolute favorites to date.

I first met Erica in high school. We weren’t in the same grade, so we only crossed paths occasionally in the hallways, during assemblies, or while in the library. When she got engaged to Chris, I was honored that she reached out to us about her wedding. We met over some delicious chai spiced lattes at Baltimore Coffee & Tea and everything just fell into place.

We also must note: We did a double take when we first saw him, because we thought he looked incredibly like Neil Patrick Harris. (Yay or nay? We’re accepting votes in the comments below!)

Oh, and did I mention they’re awesome rock climbers? Small world – but it turned out that we had all been climbing at the same gym (Earth Treks) at one point in time. Since their first date took place at Seneca Rocks in West Virginia, we decided to make a weekend road trip for a combination of engagement photos and a good climbing adventure. It was a pretty incredible time, with no communication with the outside world (NRQZ – National Radio Quiet Zone). I couldn’t believe how relaxing it was to be social media free.

We spent the first day climbing, stayed the night in a super cute cabin, then woke up at sunrise to get some beautiful photos. It was pure awesome.

After this next photo, we packed our gear and followed suit. Rappelling is my favorite.
