As the saying goes, “Good things come to those who wait,” and for all those talented vendors involved in making this cover shoot a reality, we think they would tend to agree. After months of keeping this Common Dove Photography gallery a secret, the time has come at last to share with one and all the images and fun behind-the-scenes details from this tremendously special editorial. We all woke up very early one August morning (and by early I mean 4:30 a.m., yikes) and drove up the Blue Ridge Parkway in fog and chilly pre-dawn temperatures. We were chasing that sunrise (that oh-so beautiful mountain sunrise that takes your breath away) and I’m happy to report that we found it. HCWG is eternally grateful for all those that helped make this event so memorable! Scroll down through all of these stunning images to see who all was involved in making this day the BEST day.
