Kathryn is a gentle heart with a contagious laugh. She finds respite when immersed in the wilderness, mountain biking with her partner Ian, and sharing real, heart-felt conversation with others. Even as an avid adventurer with a travelers spirit, the Blue Ridge Mountains always call her back home. She was born and raised in these hills and has a deep connection to their stories. She prefers hugs over handshakes, honesty over perfection, and individuality over tradition.

Amelia Fletcher Photography

I am a photographer by trade and beekeeper by hobby. I love photographing a variety of things but people are my favorite by far, so I specialize in weddings and portraits. I grew up here in the Blue Ridge mountains, and while I love traveling whenever I can get away, this place will always be home. My roots here have influenced almost every aspect of my life both personally and professionally. I'm a lover of all foods made from chocolate, an avid podcast listener, and hope to be a good steward to these gorgeous mountains while inspiring others to do the same.

Amy Ellis Photography

Hi there! I'm a wedding and styled stock photographer in the Carolinas. I currently live in Greenville, SC but find myself in Asheville and Charlotte every week. I love long drives and listening to podcasts, especially through the Blue Ridge Mountains, which will forever have my heart. When I'm not taking photos, I'm hiking, eating fried pickles, and snuggling my pup Tina.

Carolyn Marie Photography

Hey there! I'm a documentary wedding and elopement photographer who finally followed my heart to the Blue Ridge Mountains nearly 5 years ago. I'm passionate about helping my couples feel real emotions on their big day, protecting and preserving our glorious earth, and eating all the goat cheese I can get my hands on. I was raised in Chapel Hill (go Heels!) but the mountains have always held a part of my soul. I'm married to the best man in the world, mom to two sweet pups, and listen to Harry Potter on audio book on constant loop while editing. When I'm not behind the camera or my computer you can find me hiking, swimming, running around outside with my dogs, or cooking up something delicious.

My style has a cinematic influence which shines in my documentary approach.
I love to be a fly on the wall capturing candids and unexpected details. I'm also ready to put
on my director's hat when guidance is needed during family formals or for a flattering headshot.

Enowen Photography

Hello my friend. I'm Sarah, a Scottish lassie who moved to America thirteen years ago to marry my North Carolina man and raise two wild and wonderful boys. I'm a musician, artist, spiritual director and of course - a photographer.
I currently live in Boone North Carolina, where mountains sing echoes of Scottish songs to me and my children. I love period films, singing for old people, Lord of the Rings, dark chocolate, and my dog Finn, just to name a few wee gems. 
It's been said I carry a peaceful presence, a deep listening ear, and I am always interested in exploring what is good, true, and beautiful. Creativity and kindness is what matters to me in my process, and indeed in life.

Hello! I’m Christian, a wedding and adventure elopement photographer based out of western North Carolina. Protecting and being a good steward of Mother Earth is not only a major part of my life as a business owner, it’s rooted in the core of who I am. I’m a mother, artist, lover of adventure, and continually seek the joy in everyday life. In my work I strive to capture real human emotion and connection while artistically integrating the beauty of the natural spaces I am so fortunate to frequently document. Doing my part to preserve the planet for generations to come is integral in my life and I hope to inspire other to do the same.

MorningWild Photography

I believe that photography is a beautiful act of listening and storytelling. I value the responsibility of making honest images that reflect the truth in the relationships, moments, and emotions that I’m honored to witness. I grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan but found a new home in the South almost 10 years ago. The mountains have grounded me, inspired me, and opened my eyes to one of the most majestic places on earth.

Michelle Lyerly Photography

www.michellelyerly.com

A wedding photographer living in the NC mountains. I started specializing in intimate weddings and adventure elopements a few years ago but I hate being put into a box. Honestly I love all reasons to celebrate the people you love.  I am a mom to three darling girls and a wife to the best man I know.  Together we camp, swim in rivers, snowboard, farm, cook, hike and are chaotically trying and move through this life mindfully with love and kindness. My approach to photography is emotional, artful and honest. I also have a true love for my local community and the Blue Ridge Mountains that we reside in.

Sheila Mraz Photography

As a former middle and elementary teacher, friends say that I am as goofy as an adolescent, giggly as a toddler and grounded like a grandmother. People are my jam as well as these mountains. I've called Asheville home for the past 20 years and can't imagine being anywhere else. I currently reside in a 1912 farmhouse in West Asheville, that we refurbished ourselves, with my 2 boys and incredibly talented and inspiring husband. If you are seeking images of pure joy, let's get in touch.
