Stephanie & Lee // Wedding // Laurel Fork, VA//October 20, 2014

Asheville Wedding Photographers_00001

This one of a kind, creekside Virginia wedding was so full of color, charm, and joyful celebration that our heads are still spinning. These two are such a blast to be around that it’s no surprise their wedding day carried the same feel throughout the entire day. These lovebirds threw such an amazing party that even when the skies opened up and downpoured, the party didn’t stop even for a moment. Sometimes the best and most beautiful moments in life happen when you embrace the unexpected and choose to celebrate.

Even when the power flickered off and on with all the rain, the dancing never stopped. … And we loved it.

We’re super pumped about their unique wedding video, too. Stephanie and Lee, you guys are the coolest. We adore you. Thanks for inviting us into your day and your lives!

Today felt like a blur …//October 16, 2014

Fall 2014-533012small

Ever have days where you just can’t seem to get on top of things? Today was one of those days that had me feeling completely overwhelmed most of the day. With a mile long list of to-do’s and nearing deadlines, I felt as though I couldn’t quite catch my breath.

Sometimes pausing long enough to take a few deep breaths or step outside to soak in some beauty brings stress levels down. Beauty has such incredible power – the power to calm, soothe, and excite. The power to inspire.

I am grateful. Grateful not only for beauty, but for the ability to see it with working eyes. I am thankful for the ability to capture it, and to do that for a living. This job, like any, isn’t all glitz and glamor, but as I search to get back to a place of discovering the artist within me, I am grateful.

-Elizabeth

Liz & Danny // Mast Farm Inn // Banner Elk, NC // Wedding//October 8, 2014

When we showed up at Mast Farm Inn we were smitten. It was crazy beautiful. Such a wonderful place for a wedding. We quickly met two people that matched the charm of this space. Liz and Danny were so kind and their families and friends were overwhelmingly sweet. I caught myself tearing up more than once listening to the speeches spoken over them. Liz’s dad brought down the house. Tissues please.  Liz and Danny, we wish you a lifetime of beauty and may these images remind you of the perfect wedding you created.

If you look at one blog today it should be this one.  Holy beautiful.  Natalee and Joe are two of the sweetest and best looking people you’ll ever meet.  From getting ready at the Renaissance Hotel to the wedding at The Venue… This day was soaked in so much beauty.  Take a moment and just look for yourself.  We can’t stop.

Beth & Hunter // Asheville, NC // Wedding//August 26, 2014

2014-08-26_0001

This Asheville wedding was full of grace, charm, and Southern beauty. We were honored to capture Beth and Hunter’s Asheville wedding with both stills and video. (We couldn’t be more excited about the addition of videography to our services!)

Their ceremony was held at Central United Methodist Church in downtown Asheville, with their reception at at the always elegant Crest Center and Pavilion. Beth and Hunter, we are so grateful to have been a part of your day, and we wish you all the best for many years to come!
