Ninety percent of our clients live in other parts of the US and Asheville is a destination wedding location for them! We were thrilled when Emmalyn and Max reached out to us and we learned that they live right here in Asheville. You guys these two are absolutely amazing and it was such a pleasure to be apart of their big day! So much more to come from this intimate wedding but we wanted to post a little sneak peak.
Making portraits in the studio these past few months has been so refreshing. We’re excited to offer our clients in Asheville a warm indoor location now and it will be great in the spring to have a rain-back-up.
We created these maternity portraits with Sonia last week and wanted to share some of our favorites.
Shea and Blake are tying the knot in Telluride, CO next year but they wanted to do their engagement session in the mountains where they met. These guys spend all of their spare time hiking and being outdoors and I half expected them to show up in base ball caps and hiking gear. As soon as I saw Shea's dress I knew it would look incredible on film and I'm dying over these yellow and green tones. These guys seriously rocked their session, I'm filing these images under what to wear for an engagement session!
Biltmore Forest country club is so charming and quickly becoming one of my favorite places to shoot at, especially in the fall. I was so excited to work with Sara and her team at Wedding Connections and Flora's beautiful floral designs are always SO captivating!
I started the day as I always do, arriving a little early to scope out the lay of the land and document some details. It's a good way to ease into the hustle bustle of everything and get acquainted with the families. After a little run in with the local turkey's I found the bride doing her brides-maids hair and makeup, pumped and ready to jump into that dress. We did a little first look which allowed us to get some of the formal portraits out of the way and meant that Jonsie and John could enjoy more of their wedding day and actually attend cocktail hour. I just immediately fell in love with this couple and I had an amazing time documenting their day. They really knew how to have fun and threw an exceptional party! Here's some highlights and vendors below ...
