I felt like I was on top of the world throughout Christa and Kenneth’s engagement session in Cashiers. Her parent’s mountain property at Lonesome Valley provided so many options for us to shoot! I loved incorporating their style and personality into the shoot with their dogs and four-wheelers. At the end of the day, the golden light with the views proved to be my favorite spot. This is also where the couple will marry in the spring. Asheville Event Company is sure to design something fabulous for this couple and I can’t wait to photograph it!
Ellen and Liam were real troopers for the engagement session at Biltmore. It was 35 degrees with high winds, but we made it work. Ellen, being a photographer herself, knew all about what it took to make authentic imagery on this cold winter day. Liam plays hockey and Ellen photographs hockey for the NHL! We would take ‘getting-warm’ breaks between shooting and had a great time anyways. The lights at the Biltmore Estate are so gorgeous and truly provided some magic for the photographs for our session.
Sharing the highlights…

I feel like I’ve known this couple for years now. We hit it off when we met up about a year ago and after photographing their engagement session, Tana’s Boudoir session as well as a family session, I feel very close to my clients. They had a beautiful wedding at the Capital Club in downtown Asheville. I’m so happy the couple decided on a ‘first look’ so that we could go downtown to capture some really fun times before their ceremony started. We started at Pack’s Tavern area and moved our way around Asheville!
The views from the Capital Club proved a beautiful backdrop for their ceremony and reception. I wish Tana and Damien so much love and happiness! Looking forward to keeping in touch with them since they practically live in my back yard!
Documenting the traditions of a Henna Party was truly an amazing experience. I was very concerned with capturing the sacred nature of these traditions in a non-obtrusive way. I normally wear black to events to try to blend in, but I should have worn my brightest outfit instead.
I only shared some of the highlights, due to the private nature of this extraordinary party.
Things I loved about this event…
1. The women had their own party for 2 hours.
2. The dancing and colors were so vivid and beautiful.
3. Details, details, brilliant details.
4. I left with Henna on my right hand.
5. This couple and their families came together with a bond like no other.
