"What I love most about photography is getting to connect with so many different people and making them feel something with my art. I truly put a piece of my heart and soul into every photo I create."

"My favorite thing about photography is capturing raw emotion. There are plenty of pretty pictures out there but to be able to freeze a moment in time that will take someone back to that special place is the ultimate for me. I live for those shots!"

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!).
Regina fell in love with photography as a young girl with a simple Kodak Polaroid Camera. The opportunity to freeze a moment in time that she could cherish forever filled her heart with purpose and passion. Now equipped with a Photography degree from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and a Business degree from LeTourneau University, Regina continues to glean knowledge and experience from traveling around the globe. She takes pride in her creative eye, as well as lighting and technical skills. With personality and enthusiasm, Regina photographs people from all walks of life and gives them a memorable experience along with their perfectly captured moments. She has a photojournalistic style that allows the personalities of the subjects to shine through & tell their own story.
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.
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.
