We were fortunate to be a part of Haiku I Do’s Couture Collective this spring with so many amazing Asheville wedding vendors like Turner and Co. and Angela Kim Couture to name a couple. We also meet some awesome couples. Enter Janae + Joe!

Janae + Joe were the winners of our engagement session giveaway! We had such a great time with them during their session! I mean, that mustache and those smiles!!!

Congratulations guys! We wish you all the best and many, many years of wedded bliss- keep having fun!

Shea + Blake | A Summer Engagement Session at Biltmore

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!

Asheville Anniversary Session at Craggy Gardens

Kelly + Scott hired me to take some anniversary portraits at one of their favorite locations in North Carolina before they made the move to the west coast. We ended up shooting their session a little earlier in the day than expected, due to travel plans and some anticipated afternoon thunderstorms. I typically shoot in the late afternoon, when it's a little cooler and hope for some golden hour but it was such a refreshing change to be on top of Craggy in the middle of the day. The weather was perfect, the rhododendrons were starting to bloom and I love how the images turned out, particularly the blues in the bright sunlight.

A Destination Wedding in Charleston, South Carolina

"A good time occurs precisely when we lose track of what time it is." ~ Robert Farrah Capon

I'm pretty pumped when I get the opportunity to combine work and travel and especially to Charleston, one of my favorite cities in the US. Megan found out about me from her Maid-of-Honor who met and became friends with one of my brides on their honeymoon last year. How awesome is that? Take that google! There is still more power in the word of mouth. Anyway enough about that; Lets get to Megan and Andrew's gorgeous wedding details. If you're interested check out the vendor list at the bottom but in the meantime here's some highlights. Megan is an amazing artist and so of course designed all of her own paper goods and invitation suite. Most of their guests were coming from a far and so they rented entire houses down town for the guys and girls to get ready in. We hit The Battery for portraits and travelled in a cool vintage bus over to the Ceremony at The Francis Marion hotel. The party continued at the infamous Edmunds Oast (where I didn't try the beer obviously but the fried chicken was the best to be had). The bag-piper was a dear friend and played during the ceremony as well as the final sparkler-lit exit! The biggest hit however at the reception aside from the DJ was the Donut wall.

Thanks for inviting us along Megan + Andrew we had such a great time!

2016 | North Carolina Wedding Photographer

Putting these images together sort of feels like making a mixed tape for a friend! I'm not sure which order to put them in, or how many to include, I just want you to love them as much as I enjoyed taking them all. 2016 was lovely! We laughed, wore leis, threw snow balls, had babies, enjoyed fire-works, exchanged vows, chose to dance when it rained and toasted to the good times ahead!

I've said it before (and know I'll say it again) but it is an absolute privilege to be invited into these precious moments of my clients lives. Thank you for making me one of the girls, welcoming me in like family, hiking up mountains and making sure I'm well-fed/watered during those long summer weddings! I danced with you guys, cried during speeches and will be forever grateful for the experiences we've shared!

{Big THANK YOU to Bren, Abby, Olivia, Courtney, Lindsey and Steph for all of your mad shooting and film-rolling skills - I love you girls and couldn't have made it through without you. xoxox}
