I love finding new places … especially when that new place makes its own wine and brews its own beer as was the case with Morgan Ridge Vineyards in Gold Hill. Christine had called a couple weeks prior to this shoot asking if I’ve ever been out to Morgan Ridge, which I had not, so I immediately Googled it to check out the potential and got excited.
Not only did Morgan Ridge have amazing craft-brewed beer (I’ve yet to try the wine, but I am sure it is equally good) but the grounds, hidden away in the rural North Carolina countryside, were beautiful. Add a wonderful bride and groom to be, and it was a perfect spot for an engagement session.
Christine and Jonathan knew how to do it right. They got to the vineyard about an hour or so prior to the photo shoot to enjoy the wine themselves and made a entire evening out of it. We had a lot of fun during the engagement shoot.
Since spending the evening with Christine and Jonathan, I’ve been back to Morgan Ridge several times to sample the beer myself and hope to shoot at this location again in the future.Share This!
