The Boone, NC area is only a couple hours away from Asheville, so if you’re looking for more information on eloping in Western North Carolina, checkout my How to Elope in NC Guide.

Where to Stay

So you’re thinking about eloping in Boone, NC? If you’re wanting to elope here in the winter, the cozy owl cabin is a great choice! Nestled in the mountains, this aframe cabin has beautiful lighting for your getting ready photos. If there is snow you will need a 4WD or AWD vehicle to get to the cabin, otherwise you may get stuck. The road is paved but it is steep & slippery when there’s snow.

Where to Have Your Boone NC Elopement Ceremony

The most popular places in Boone to have your elopement ceremony would be one of the many overlooks along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Unfortunately, in the winter the parkway is closed most of the time due to ice & snow on the roads.

Beacon Heights

One spot that has a separate access point is the trail to Beacon Heights. The parking lot is on the Blue Ridge & inaccessible in the winter, but there’s another road that parallels the parkway that remains open & there’s some parking available along this road. Beacon heights is a short quarter mile to the top. Also, both sunset & sunrise are beautiful from this ridge.

"Kirsten was so sweet and fun to hang out with - it felt like we brought a friend along with us! She captured everything I wanted and gave us the perfect photos for us to remember our special day.
We received a mix of candid photos and portraits.

I thought I would feel awkward taking portraits. but she gave great prompts that made it fun and had us laughing. When I received my photos. I was blown away at how natural we looked and how much of our love was captured in the photos. I am literally obsessed with how our pictures came out!"

Payton & Kristen

"Kirsten produced lovely photos from our very dreamy and memorable mountain photo shoot. We display the engagement photos proudly all around our house. She knows the area well and can suggest areas if you are not.

She's non-judgmental if you're nervous about being in front of a camera and LGBTQ+ friendly! We highly recommend Kirsten to anyone looking to get engaged or elope in the Asheville area."

Caroline & Cameron

"Kirsten was delightful and really allowed us to be ourselves and enjoy the time together. The photos from this session are warm. intimate. and really showcase the love that my wife and I hold in our relationship. I am forever thankful for that afternoon Kirsten spent with us. if you are considering booking a session. this is a business you want to do it with <3"

Sarah & Alex

"Kirsten was absolutely amazing to work with! While visiting the States on our honeymoon, we arranged to have photos taken to commemorate our elopement, and Kirsten took our vision and ran with it! Kirsten made the the entire experience so easy for us - from helping us plan and pick a venue, to bringing her pop-up tent for a wardrobe change at the top of the mountain.

Kirsten went above and beyond The photos themselves are more beautiful than we could have hoped for. and we are so grateful. Could not recommend Kirsten enough!"
