It's nice to find pretty locations that are 10 minutes from your home. North Carolina is beautiful.
Honestly, This state has it all, you have the coast, the mountains, the valleys. The weather is extremely unpredictable, but it never stays hot, it never stays cold. You get to experience the freezing snow, to nearly passing out from working in the heat. Its wonderful. Location means everything to photographers. If scouting isn't part of your priority with the job, well, then... It's time to start!
P.S. Congratulations to this lovely couple who will be adding a new addition to their family in December!
