McRae Meadows at Grandfather Mountain Linville, NC

Tasha & Cody

Tasha’s vision was beautiful blue skies with McRae Peak reaching high in the background. But the wedding day was so foggy you could only see a few feet. When it was time for the wedding, the fog lifted enough to see across the meadow and made for some stunning imagery.

Fueled by equal parts sci-fi and music, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile, and ask time to please slow down. Your story…your love… is beautiful and I can’t wait to capture this in images you will treasure for years to come.
