It’s the FIRST WEDDING OF THE 2018 SEASON!!!!

{and I am GOING to do better about Blogging this year!} 😉

Many, Many Congratulations to Hailey & Nick, who were Married this past weekend in a Gorgeous, Mountain View Ceremony at a Private Cabin just outside of Asheville proper!

Nick & Hailey live in Tampa but Love Asheville & our Beautiful Mountains so they planned their Destination Wedding to treat their closest friends & family to a Wedding Weekend at a Lovely Mountain Retreat in Saluda!

It’s been a difficult year for me & the last couple weeks have been particularly painful with the death of both my father and my mother within a two week span.

My mother passed away last Tuesday & her funeral was scheduled for Sunday….

Getting out of Bed, Getting Dressed, Driving, Thinking, Working, Talking & especially Smiling were just about the last things I wanted to do on Saturday.

When you’re a Wedding Photographer, you don’t get to call in or reschedule!

Someone’s Wedding Day only happens once & there are no do-overs!

So – I psyched myself up and I went to shoot this Wedding & I did it in HONOR of my Mother!

 I think I would’ve made her very proud with this one!

Enjoy!

Kirsten & Wyatt’s Wedding at The Venue in Downtown Asheville last month was one of the most beautiful, truly moving Weddings that I have had the pleasure of photographing!

You could literally FEEL the Love radiating through the room.

It was Infectious.  It was Inspiring.

Everyone Wishes for that kind of Love & Kirsten & Wyatt’s Wedding Inspired Hope.

The Hope that – that kind of Love Exists and the Hope that you’ll find it or renew it!

Everyone in the room Loved this couple SO MUCH and it is no mystery to me about why…

Kirsten & Wyatt are two of the most humble, kindest, most thoughtful, generous and sweet people!

Their Family & Friends talked about these qualities in them all day/night long!

Their Speeches talked about how meant for each other they were and I couldn’t agree more!

I am so happy for you guys & am so honored to have been asked to help you document this beautiful day in your lives!

Best Wishes for a Long & Happy Life Together!

Wedding Season is in full swing!

Until this past weekend, I haven’t had a Saturday off in three months & am shooting 3-4 portrait sessions per week!

Which is why when I planned to share Kara’s Bridal Portrait Session {last} Monday & I’m just getting it up {this} Monday!

Which is fine because I believe Mr. & Mrs. Cummings just got back from their Honeymoon! 😉

We shot Kara’s Bridal Portrait Session at Biltmore Estate about a month and a half ago and I swear, the hardest part is waiting to share them!

Kara was such an Elegant, Beautiful Bride!

Enjoy!

Kara wanted to shoot this one for a gift for her parents! 🙂

We shot Tyler & Kara’s Engagement Session at Biltmore Estate well over a year ago!

I never got the chance to blog this session because right after it,  I went on a trip & when I came home, we found out we were having a baby & life got really hectic!

That’s okay, because today is the perfect day to share their sweet session because today Tyler & Kara are GETTING MARRIED!!!!

They’ll say I Do this afternoon at Pole Creek Baptist Church with their Reception to follow at Roberson Ranch in Candler, NC which is just outside of Asheville proper!

Jon & Beth booked their Wedding with me in early 2016!

I met them for the first time when we shot their Engagement Session at Clemson University on the 4th of July last year!

Things I remember about this session:

1. Jon & Beth are Adorable and Beth is literally the Sweetest there ever was! 😉

2. I was newly Pregnant {like 4 weeks’ish} & was SO tired and nausiated all the time then…

3. Our first location was a dud!

4. So we ended up on Clemson Universities Campus!

5. It was SO HOT!!!

6. This random college student was sitting on those steps acting REAL weird!

Thankfully we had Dr. Jon in towe {Jon is in Med School} & if memory serves, I believe Beth is a nurse & we hooked that dude up with an ambulance and some medical care! 😉

7. I spent 4th of July on the lake watching Fireworks with Jon & Beth!

Tomorrow, Jon & Beth will FINALLY tie the knot at The Peninsula Yacht Club on Lake Norman!

Congratulations you two!

It’s been a long time coming!

I’ve been meaning to Blog this Pretty Place Chapel Wedding for quite some time!

If I thought keeping up with Blogging was hard before a Baby… I had no idea! 😉

Emily & Alex are such sweet people!

They were Married on April 8th, 2017 at Pretty Place Chapel followed by a Reception at the Connestee Club House in Brevard, NC!

How do I know Emily & Alex are gonna be together forever!?

Because something pretty crazy happened on their Wedding Day & I witnessed how strong they are as a couple first hand!

They had each other’s backs, kept each other calm, comforted each other and made the best of it!

Also, just look at the way they look at each other & the way they make each other laugh!

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Cruz!

I hope you guys are loving life as Newlyweds!

I LOVED Everything about this Wedding!

First off, Nick & Alex are the absolute sweetest, most genuine, laid back, fun couple ever! 😉

That was immediately apparent to me when Alex’s first message said that she and Nick would be getting married at Highland Brewing Company in Asheville, NC!

Nick & Alex met at a Fraternity Party back in 2010!

They became Best Friends that year & each dated other people for a very long time…

On St. Patrick’s Day 2013, they had their first kiss and that was IT for them!

They’ve been together ever since & isn’t it adorable that they got married on the day after St. Patrick’s Day 2017!?

I Loved every single detail about this Wedding;

Alex is a Knock Out & that Romantic BHLDN Dress & that Floral Crown though!

I loved that they chose to get Married at a Brewery, I loved that Plain with Sprinkles totally knocked the planning, decor & coordination out of the park!

I loved the Floral Decor & Catering from SMASH Events – I mean: Mini Tacos and  a Mac & Cheese Bar!? WHAT!?!?!

I loved all of the tiny, personal little details and I really loved how HAPPY everyone was! 🙂

Mitch & Megan are seriously the coolest!

They were Married on 4.8.17 in South Florida when they said I DO in an intimate backyard ceremony & reception with their closest family & friends!

They LOVE Asheville and the Mountains of WNC and wanted to Honeymoon here & they thought they’d shoot a Newlywed Portrait Session on the Blue Ridge Parkway while they were at it!

We had the BEST time together!

{we’re even gonna meet up for a beer this weekend!}

I just pulled a few random images from our evening together…

Enjoy!

Megan & Freddy have known each other since they were kids yet they were always “just friends”

{They even went to Prom together with a group of other friends in High School!}

It wasn’t until early 2015 when Freddy, being the stand up guy he is, drove down to Asheville on his weekend off to ‘be a pal’ and help Megan move! 😉

Freddy proposed at Christmas that year & these two sweeties finally said ‘I DO’ last month in a Gorgeous Winter Wedding at

Celine & Company’s On Broadway in Downtown Asheville, NC!

Not only was this Wedding a visual feast with a Blush & Gold color scheme but also, the thoughtful DIY details really made it something special!

Megan & Freddy also threw one hell of a party!

Their friends & family traveled from near and far to help them Celebrate their Union and it certainly shows in their Reception Photos!

{Seriously, EVERYONE looks like they’re having the time of their lives!!!}

Enjoy!

I also want to mention how incredibly grateful I am for the support of my colleagues & friends, Carrie Turner & Nick King!

I was actually in the Hospital with a Newborn Baby in NICU during Megan & Freddy’s Wedding

{Yes, there was a ton of planning and forethought prior to the Wedding Day! It wasn’t a surprise! 😉 }

Nick & Carrie really stepped up and -handled- everything & the resulting photographs are gorgeous!

I knew they would be!

I can’t Thank You guys enough for stepping up & helping me out when I needed ‘a little help from my friends’

Megan & Freddy are THRILLED!

You’re the Best & I totally owe you one or two!
