Jesse began his photography journey shooting landscapes and wildlife, wanting to capture and share his perception of the beauty in the world with others. What started as a hobby quickly became his passion. After having the opportunity to shoot a few weddings with friends who needed a second shooter he was immediately hooked and soon shooting on his own. He takes great joy from photographing weddings, considering it an honor to be able to document one of the happiest days of a couple's lives. Jesse is passionate about wedding photography because it enables him to capture people's personalities and emotions, to give them the gift of their younger selves later in life. He especially loves looking for the little candid moments throughout the day that truly make a wedding special. He believes that these memories, the joy, the laughter, the tears, are the ones that will be cherished for a lifetime.
Jesse grew up in North Carolina and then lived in Colorado for ten years, moving back to Asheville in 2015. He lives here with his wife and son, loving their life in the mountains! In their free time they can usually be found somewhere deep in the woods, hiking, camping, fishing, and taking pictures (of course!).
Megan has already officiated many of the weddings and elopements her husband Jesse photographed, so it was only natural for her to pick up the camera herself. Starting by shooting every part of elopements that she wasn't busy officiating, she soon transitioned to working as a team with her husband photographing larger weddings. She and Jesse both take tremendous joy from being able to document other couple's love stories. They make an excellent team, he shoots with a photojournalistic style while she shoots with an artistic one, together they beautifully capture every aspect of a wedding day.
When not busy officiating and photographing your special day, she can be found frolicking in the woods with her husband and son. She loves practicing yoga, getting lost in a great book, and unicorns.

Hannah became interested in photography at a pretty young age, before she even started high school. Once she went to high school, she attended a special four year program designed for photography and journalism. Through this program she met her biggest life and photography mentor, Mr. Lorentzon. He inspired her to make photography my career choice. Through this program, she was given the opportunity to work for a company called Gumps Sports Photography, where she spent 4 years.
One of her main reasons she loves photography is because she loves capturing the beauty that surrounds us. She loves capturing life's moments, both big and small. A fun fact about her: Her cat, Simba, is her best friend and photography model.
Sarah has always been the person who pulls out a camera to capture a moment because she understands the importance of documenting life as it happens. Growing up in Liverpool, England and moving to Greenville, South Carolina at the age 14, Sarah found photography while participating in her high school year book staff. After high school, she pursued an Associate in Arts and a Bachelor's of Criminal Justice, but she soon realized photography was her passion. In her free time, Sarah enjoys shooting nature, landscape and sports, but photographing people is where her heart lies. Sarah loves to capture families and children, but most importantly engagements and weddings. Sarah truly understands the importance of documenting those little moments throughout the wedding day. She feels it is an honor and a privilege to capture the special celebration between family and friends.
Sarah is married to her wife Nikki, and they currently live in Hendersonville, NC. They enjoy spending time outdoors, kayaking, hiking and hanging out with their five year old nephew and two year old grandson, who are always in front of the camera.
Photography started as a hobby for Nick, as it does for most people. As a kid, he started playing with the family camera, entered a few contests, and based his high school senior project on shadowing different types of photographers. Fast forward a few years and photography is Nick's career path.
Nick loves taking pictures because it allows him to give someone something that they cannot give themselves. Not to mention the beauty of capturing raw emotion in an individual. When people let down their guard and are their unapologetic selves around a camera is when real authentic pictures happen.
Amanda's desire to become a wedding photographer was immediate as soon as she saw the pictures from her own wedding. It made her see the importance of your wedding photos telling a part of your story.... the story of love, family, and of a new beginning.
Amanda loves to photograph all the little moments like your mom finishes lacing your dress and placing your veil, when you look up in the mirror to see yourself as a bride for the first time, the moment you say " I do", and the moment your parents and grandparents slow danced at your wedding.
These are some of her favorite moments to capture for you because they are the moments that meant the most from her own wedding day.
