Hey friends! I'm not going anywhere but this is just an "official" notice that I will no longer be using Facebook for updates. I haven't found it to be an effective tool for my clientele and have not been posting here for awhile. I don't enjoy the constant arguments on Facebook and much prefer the cleaner interface of Instagram anyway. Who knows, I may be back at some point but in the meantime follow me on over to Instagram where, at least for now, the photos do the talking!

Katy's dad sees her in her dress for the first time.

Just one of those private little moments throughout the wedding day that I always feel honored to photograph.

Side note: I'm sure many of you have heard of Gladwell's 10,000 Hour Rule and I'm often reminded that there is some truth to it. When I was first starting out I took photos that I'm still (thankfully) proud of years later. But now I find myself moving around without much thought, putting myself in the right place to photograph these moments consistently all day long. It's hard to describe but it feels great when the moment falls right into place and weddings are full of them.

Biltmore Estate Wedding At The Lioncrest

My entire workflow is centered around getting my clients' their images as quickly as possible so my blog is sometimes the last thing to get attention. Anyway, Laura and Eric's summer wedding at the the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC was just too beautiful and fun not to share. No matter what year. ;)

Now that it's the off season I've had a chance to organize my files a little better and I came across the images for this blog post from long ago. I loved working with Laura and Eric so much and had to post their wedding no matter how out of date it might be. And really, does it matter to you anyway

Tyler Ramsey - Please Stop Time

Editing tunes for December 1st, 2017.

Look out the window
I never woke up in a place like this before
You see the ocean
So close the waves break on our blankets and pillows

I saw the sun rise
It came in slow just above your shoulder
I pulled my arm around your side
The morning air always seems much colder

Outside a bird flew by
Along the branches of the trees on the shoreline
I watched you open up your eyes
The silhouettes reflected from them into mine

Please stop time

From the album, "A Long Dream About Swimming Across The Sea." Released in 2008.

C + L : I love every corner of this place.⠀

As we walked to the cocktail hour we stopped by this little spot for a few photos. Right after I snapped this the bride asked very softly "can we be done?" I burst out laughing and told them "we can do anything you want!" Here's the thing. I always try to balance my efforts as a photographer with the time constraints of the wedding day. Taking a few photos on the way to the reception location seemed like a good compromise and C + L were on board. But as they talked quietly with each other over in those trees I think they were reminded of how much they wanted to enjoy their time with family and friends. That was what their wedding day vision was for them all along. It wasn't a dramatic photo shoot, it wasn't Pinterest trinkets, it wasn't a wild dance party. It was the people. ⠀

So we cut short one of the shorter portrait sessions I've ever had and believe it or not, I was STILL their wedding photographer. I was just photographing them laughing and smiling with their friends and family instead. I guess that's the weird thing about this industry right now. I want to post this photo because it feels "right" for Instagram, it feels like a wedding photo. But I know what they will be most excited about are the snapshots of them with their guests. I don't know what the moral of the story is here but this is a peek at my job and I'm always trying to do it better for all of my very different clients.⠀
