Couldn’t have had a better time with these two during their engagement session!  They tried to convince me that they aren’t actually models, but I wasn’t fooled for even a second. Thanks for driving up to Asheville for the day, you two – I can’t wait for your wedding!

With the mountains in their panoramic autumnal glory, there were many moments during this wedding where the scenery took my breath away. This wedding was full of moments that reaffirmed why I love what I do. Photographing in these mountains was simultaneously an intimate and grand experience. The wedding itself, unadulterated in its unscripted-ness – no need to decorate this ceremony site with Pinterest details. I do believe this wedding will stay imprinted on me for a lifetime. Thank you Myra and Sam for inviting me to witness your beautiful wedding.

Sometimes you meet a couple that you immediately click with and Lianne and Kevin being their sweet and adorably silly selves definitely fell into just that category. So congrats to my sister from another mister and her new Mr.!

Absolute perfection comes to mind when thinking about Lia and Josiah’s Claxton Farm wedding.  All of the vendors were top notch and made such an impeccable event.  We had perfect weather throughout the day, and then it started to mist right at the end of the night – just long enough for us to get an amazing shot that almost looked like the stars had come down.

I just love the Arboretum that we have here in Asheville!  It made such a beautiful backdrop to Courtney and Dave’s wedding.  Associate photographer Jo captured so many tender moments between them.  I always love Jo’s perspective – her little vignettes of the wedding day make you feel like you’re right inside the memory.

Kaitlyn + Adam: Rainy Asheville Botanical Gardens Wedding

We, wedding photographers in Asheville have joked that this is the year of the monsoon wedding season.  While the skies did unleash quite the rainstorm on Kaitlyn and Adam’s wedding at the Botanical Gardens, it did not dampen their spirits one bit. It is truly a testament to how amazing my couples are to literally let the rain roll of off their backs.  As a symbol to the start of their marriage, Kaitlyn and Adam created an awesome painting by merging two colors together, but I also really love the added symbolism of rain – the cleansing of the previous stage of your life and prepping a clean slate for the next.  It truly was a perfect setting. I love you guys!

I loved looking at all of the creativity that Lisa and Alex infused into their wedding and what better backdrop for it then the Levine museum? The modern building makes me swoon. It was also such a nice surprise to later find out that Lisa went to art school with my hubby Shawn!  I love these small world moments!
