Max Patch Engagement Photos
We love an adventure, and these Max Patch engagement photos overlooking the Great Smoky Mountains definitely qualify for just that! We met Meredith and Anthony for their romantic fall engagement photos high atop the Tennessee-North Carolina border on a beautiful sunny afternoon.
Max Patch was one of those locations that we talked about visiting for years, but never had the opportunity to see in person. So, when Meredith and Anthony (who live near Johnson City) asked us if there was a location where we could meet between Knoxville and the Tri-Cities, Max Patch was the perfect spot!
We were amazed at how many visitors hiked up the mountain that day, and even more amazed that so many people pitched tents and camped that night. Some even spent multiple nights star-gazing with the breathtaking 360-degree views of the Great Smoky Mountains, Balsam Mountains, and Black Mountains.
As the sun was setting, it all made perfect sense why so many people made the trek to Max Patch. It was one of the most gorgeous sunsets we’d ever seen behind layers and layers of mountains rising in the distance.
Meredith and Anthony are getting married next fall at Chateau Selah in Blountville, Tennessee, and we can’t wait to capture their Tennessee mountain wedding.
About Max Patch
Located in the Pisgah National Forest, Max Patch is near Hot Springs, North Carolina. With panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains and Balsam Mountains, it is on the Tennessee and North Carolina border. In the 1800s, the mountain was cleared and used as pasture. There is a small parking lot at the base of the bald, with a 20-minute hike to the top.
