Dancing Bear Lodge Engagement Photos

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! And that is exactly what we did for Amanda and Aaron’s engagement photos in Townsend, Tennessee. You see, we were originally scheduled to take photos at the Townsend Wye. But, life made other plans. Just three miles away from our scheduled destination, traffic stalled to a standstill. The all-important Townsend Christmas Parade had just finished. A quick decision had us calling the amazing folks Dancing Bear Lodge to see if we could borrow their beautiful property for an hour. And, before you know it, we made Dancing Bear Lodge engagement photos!

As you can see, we had a fairly warm winter day at Dancing Bear Lodge. The sun peeked through all the natural elements that surrounded us. We walked through the hiking trails that dotted the property and found all the unique locations. I personally loved the dense forest photos myself. But, I can definitely settle for the windy road photos that finished off our session together.
