We took Melissa and Sam’s engagement photos at her family’s adorable lake house on Lake Gaston. It was a perfect overcast day- there’s something about being by a still lake on a gray day that makes me so happy. It’s so peaceful and reflective, and feels super cozy looking out at the lake while curled up in a blanket. I love the photos we created, and can’t wait for their wedding this Fall!
Brittany and Jon got married on a gorgeous Asheville summer day. They are two of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet, and their wedding was so joyful, lighthearted, and full of love and laughter and dancing. Brittany and I were close buds in high school, and getting to be her wedding photographer has been a total dream. Getting to reconnect with her and get to know Jon has been the absolute best! The Farm feels like an elegant beautiful summer camp- complete with horses that you can feed! At sunset we ran across the street and watched the sky turn from blue to cotton candy pinks and purples, and enjoyed watching the silhouettes of the surrounding Blue Ridge mountains turn from light to dark blues. Because they enjoy running together (he proposed to her during a half marathon in Yellowstone!) it was only fitting that they rounded out the night with their running shoes on, dashing through their guests blowing bubbles.
