Brooke & Spencer 02.17.18 This has been one of the best elopements to photograph. Chimney Rock State Park in the fog...need I say more. A photographers dream. The images are so soft and stunning! Listening to Brooke and Spencer say their vows was touching and an honor to witness. My favorite image looks as if we transported to Yosemite with Chimney Rock towering above Brooke & Spencer. Amazing! Also, our sneak peak of the cave before the ceremony. Not many people get a view inside and we got the best images!   READ MORE
Lauren and Chris were married in Asheville at Highland Brewery. That is so Asheville of them! The brewery was a perfect setting to express the love they have for one another. The rooftop had amazing views of the surrounding mountains to snap couples shots after the wedding while the production line inside the brewery was stunning for the first look. What a beautiful day in January for a wedding and the first song by The Avett brothers "January Wedding" had me singing and chocked up all at the same time. READ MORE

Facebook gave me a time-hop reminder from two years ago. It let me know I once lived in a van. For three months, I was able to travel around the U.S. in search of the best National Park (2016 Centennial)! It was incredible. Living in a van was also half the adventure. The full adventure was deciding to adopt a 9 week old puppy right before leaving. Crazy times. We succeeded in viewing 25 states starting in Montana and ending in New York. Basically a big horseshoe around the U.S. I would not trade that time for anything and on the coldest of day (like today) it is refreshing to look back on the images and videos and remember my greatest advent ...

WEDDINGS ARE THE BEST! You never have to tell someone to show emotion. The emotions are everywhere! And beautiful to capture. Maybe thats why I have such a joy photographing people on their wedding day. Holly & Greg eloped November 12, 2018 on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Asheville. It was overcast and drizzling. We drove to several locations to find the right fit. Craggy Gardens was first choice but it was in a cloud (no views). Later we drove past this gem of a spot. It was right off the road. People slowed down to see the couple. Several honked and offered their congratulations. It was a very special moment. Even though we could have do ... READ MORE
The last bit of fall colors have left us. Its nice to relax from the chase. Always thinking about the next shot. Where I should go? How I could sneak in another photo excursion before work? Now its time to relax and look through the hundreds of photos I've accumulated. This is the fun part. READ MORE
What a day to see the Blue Ridge Parkway! The leaves are in prime form. It snowed just about 30 minutes after this picture was taken. Asheville went from a warm fall to a quick burst of winter. It was an amazing way to experience the seasons. This image has been on my mind every time I pass it on the parkway. The conditions were just right to capture the image I wanted. READ MORE
