Tara and Jason met at the wedding of their best friends. They were both in the wedding party and there started their long-distance relationship. Jason surprised Tara with a proposal in Napa, California and before the big day they had this gorgeous engagement session with North Carolina wedding photographer MCSWEEN PHOTOGRAPHY at the BILTMORE ESTATE.

Tanya from MCSWEEN PHOTOGRAPHY tells us, "We met Tara and Jason for their Engagement Session at Biltmore In Asheville Friday evening. And it was perfection! The Biltmore was scarce with no one really around which is very rare and quite lovely. Tara wore the perfect summer dress and Jason was very dapper in a blazer. We made our way through the gardens and conservatory chatting together as we got to know each other. After walking around Biltmore’s gorgeous gardens we made our way up to the main estate. When I say there was no one there… we were able to get a front-of-the-house photo with no one in it. This is quite the feat if you have ever been, it’s always crowded. We enjoyed every minute of our lovely afternoon with Tara and Jason and cannot wait for their fall Asheville wedding at The Omni Grove Park Inn."

A huge thanks to North Carolina wedding photographer MCSWEEN PHOTOGRAPHY for sharing this beautiful engagement shoot with us. For the McSweens, photographing the lives of their clients is a life-giving job for which they are so thankful!
