Always love photographing at Claxton Farm and I love photographing there even more when we have a gorgeous day and a lovely (and hilarious) couple. Oh and one of the guests caught a fish (a really big fish!) in the pond. Good times for all.

Between our beautiful mountains, the Grove Park Inn and the artistry of Shay Brown Events, Lucy and Jeremy’s wedding was absolutely breathtaking.  From the way the inside of the tent’s roof was draped with layers of fabric to the way the reception room lit up at night, all the details of this wedding was the definition of elegance….except for maybe the PayDay/lollipop bouquet, Jeremy! 😉

Both Sarah and Richard grew up going to Kanuga as a spiritual center and as a camp. They recently began hosting weddings and it only seemed natural for the two of them to get married there.  Congrats, you two!  I already miss Sarah’s radiant and incredibly infectious smile!!

This Texas couple decided on a destination wedding at Lake Lure, North Carolina because Joy grew up going to the lake and it has many sentimental memories for her. From the moment I met these two, I could tell how much they adored each other, and I am so thrilled to have been a part of it all in such a beautiful location.

I am finally getting around to blogging this intimate wedding that I photographed back in the spring at Zebulon Vance Birthplace.  Originally, they were going to elope but decided they couldn’t be without some of their nearest and dearest. Loved the forsythias all in bloom!  Afterwards, we headed to downtown Asheville to take a few snaps around the Grove Arcade and Za-pow!

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.
