You Said Yes!

This is such an exciting time in your lives. The adrenaline is running high and you are ready to shout if from the rooftops, or at least from every single social media site.



Now What?

If you are anything like me, you are ready to go buy that wedding planning binder you have been eyeing on Amazon, pull up Pinterest, and get to work! For others wedding planning can be daunting. From picking a venue to choosing what to wear, selecting how many people to invite and where to sit them, and whether or not you should have an open bar to keep aunt Mabel away from the groomsmen, there are so many decisions to be made before you even get started planning for your big day.

Wedding Tips

That’s why we’re here to help.

Alisha and I have noticed that in the years that we have had meetings with brides, inevitably we will ask something that will make the bride sit back and go “You know, I never thought of that…” And that’s alright – this is usually your first time through this, but by now we’ve lost count how many weddings we’ve been a part of.

Wedding Tips

Wedding planning should be fun and exciting, not challenging. We want to help you make the time between when you said “Yes!” and  I do!” some of the most fun, exciting, and stress-free that you will have. Alisha and I have put together a list of tips, tricks, and best practices which we want to share with you. These include topics like:

  • The Big Picture
  • Creating a Wedding Planning Timeline
  • Choosing a Venue
  • Choosing a Photographer That Fits My Style
  • Hair & Make-Up – Should I Hire Someone? (YES!)
  • Defeat Burnout: How-To Delegate Tasks
  • Creating a Day-of Schedule
  • and many more!

Wedding Planning

We hope these things could help save not just time, but hopefully your sanity as well! We will be adding a new topic each week and updating this post as we do. Bookmark this page, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram to keep up with when we post new wedding planning tips!

Him & Her Photography is a husband and wife photographer team that serves the greater Greensboro and Winston-Salem area, as well as the Roanoke Valley and beyond. 

We're Josh & Alisha

Just two lovebirds, enjoying everyday life.

Photographers. Artists. Creatives. Parents to two. Nerds. Foodies. Lovers. Friends.

We have been friends since 2006, married since 2008, and capturing memories through photography since 2010. The years of experience in all three make us uniquely qualified to tell your budding love story. If the years have taught us anything, its that fulfilling, long-lasting marriages have a foundation of friendship, and are built with joy - and perhaps quite a few carbs! 

We strive to help you feel confident during your big day, and not awkward or stressed - so you can look back on joyful memories that tell your love story.


Hi! I'm Alisha!

I'm so excited you're here! 

In addition to being a lady-boss photographer, I am a wife, a mom, a teacher and a follower of Jesus. Those things are the center of everything about who I am, what I do, and how I do it. That means I believe in how important family is, whether you are just starting your own, or are celebrating all of those special milestones. Josh and I have been married for over 12 years and photographing weddings and families for over 10 of those years. Our style has evolved over time, but we love capturing images that are bright, colorful, and tell the most important story - yours!

When we are not shooting, I love going on adventures with our two beautiful girls, trying new recipes, or catching up on my favorite shows with my hubby.


Hi! I'm Josh!

I want to capture your day!

Having the opportunity to live in a town as beautiful as Kernersville, NC is great. Being able to be here with Alisha is even better. I've been married over twelve years to the love of my life and for most of that time we have worked closely as wedding photographers. Because of this, we have a unique outlook on the wedding experience. Having the opportunity to find the joy and love in that special day and share it with you and your family and friends is the best thing about what I do. That's why I never miss getting a photo of the groom's face when he sees his bride for the first time.

When I don't have a camera in my hands, I enjoy coffee dates and car-sushi with my bride, board games before bed, and binge watching Netflix.
