Biltmore Estate Wedding Photography – Lioncrest Wedding – Aly and Robert

Miami natives, Aly and Robert, chose The Biltmore Estate for their destination wedding.  The WNC mountains provided a beautiful backdrop, but, the unusual cold and wet weather was unexpected.  These two took it all in stride, despite the chilly wind and drizzle.

I could have photographed Aly all day. She carried herself with such relaxed grace – nothing could have kept her down. The plus side to a rainy wedding at the Biltmore? The crowds disperse and we get the house and grounds to ourselves for a bit… 😉 Not too shabby.

Congrats to Aly and Robert! I had a blast conquering the rain with you. Just beautiful.

The Biltmore Estate Wedding Photographer – Sara and Blair

Just magical. Everything about Sara and Blair’s wedding day was straight out of a fairy tale.  The 4-day event went smoothly thanks to the amazing team of Asheville Event Co. and you could not ask for a more beautiful backdrop than The Biltmore Estate.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time getting to know Sara and Blair over this past year. They planned this destination wedding from Colorado and I enjoyed every minute with them – from our “epic” engagement sessions to the wedding day itself – it was a blast!

My personal favorite moment from the wedding was the processional during the ceremony.  You could feel the absolute joy and enthusiasm from Sara and her father in every single step they took and I love how it comes through in the images below…

To the Duke and Matthews families: It was wonderful getting to know you and work with you. Thanks for making me feel like an honorary member of the family for the weekend. 🙂

Destination Engagement Photography – Kala and James

Oh goodness! I’m so behind on posting on the blog. Such is life and I’m not immune to falling in and out of routine. And… it has been a relaxed and much-needed slow season, but, spring is here and with it – Engagement season. 🙂

First up: Kala and James.   I first met Kala in 2010 in Jamaica at her brother’s destination wedding. (shout out to the Maier and Fox families). It’s so crazy… I feel like that was yesterday?

We had a great time driving around Marion and I loved getting to know James. Hope you enjoy the sneak peek.

Side note: I’ve booked 3 brides this year that have met me at destination weddings – so, that is kinda cool, right? So much more coming soon! I am in serious catch up mode.

The Ridge Asheville Wedding Photographer – Fall Bridal Portraits

Little behind on posting this one, but, the warm weather reminded me of our fall shoot. 🙂 The lovely Katie chose The Ridge Asheville as the backdrop for her bridals and it couldn’t have been a more beautiful day!  On a side note, I became obsessed with the amazing red lipstick Katie was wearing and found out from the make up artist (Melissa – with POP of Color) that it is “Red” by MAC. I totally went out and bought some myself.  Now, if I could just get courage to wear it out of the house…

Hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed the session!

The Venue Asheville Wedding Photographer – Katie and Chris

Hello Winter. That’s right. Snowmageddon decided to show up the night before my first 2017 wedding. Honestly, I love an adventure and can’t think of a better way to start the New Year. However, logistically, it makes for some difficulties on a wedding day. Little things really – like driving…

I decided it would be best to stay in The Renaissance Hotel (the same hotel the bride was getting ready in) the entire weekend to avoid any mishaps. Truly, the best decision I could have made and the room service was to die for. 😉

I just love working with this family! From Senior Portraits in High School to Weddings… The Kelley family makes you feel like one of their own.

Many thanks to all those who helped me with equipment and 4×4 driving to and from the wedding locations and hugs to all the vendors. It was such a team effort on this one and so worth it!
