Spend a full day photographing spring wildflowers and rushing waterfalls with the person who knows this region best! You’ll begin the day photographing the sunrise over the mountain ridges of Pisgah National Forest and then explore three to five waterfalls and several locations for wildflowers. We will have lunch in the field and dinner at a restaurant in Waynesville. The day ends with an evening photo shoot at one of the best sunset locations in the southern Appalachians.

I know this region and its photo opportunities intimately. The peak of the spring ephemeral wildflower bloom can vary, but I’ll know where to go and at what elevation to find something in bloom. And no one knows the waterfalls better. This will be an intensive, all-day photographic adventure. I’ll make sure you get your money’s worth!

The early stages of spring green in the mountains.
