I am so incredibly excited to share this shoot with all of you! We styled and shot this Living Coral Fairytale Wedding just outside of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. We designed this shoot to help highlight Pantone’s color of the year, Living Coral. Wanting to show brides a unique way to include this bold, flattering color into their wedding palette we chose a very warm color palette full of luscious greens and luxurious gold tones to highlight our coral color. We wanted this wedding shoot to evoke the feeling of warm summer sunsets and whimsical fairytale evenings.

This was an absolute labor of love by several amazing Frendors that chose to collaborate with us to make our vision come to life and I can’t wait to highlight them below. I also need to take a moment to speak about our wonderful models that were a part of this shoot. Our bride and groom, Kasey & Johnathan, and our bridesmaid and groomsman, Tyler and Kristina have both been married for several years and have withstood the trials of life together – their marriages all the stronger for it. Like us, they believe in marriage and love that holds-fast through the storms of life. When they came on board for this shoot I was so thrilled because I wanted this to be a special opportunity for them to make memories together and reignite the spark in their relationship. I always try to encourage our couples to take the time to remember why they chose each other.

Donnaha Valley Farm was the perfect backdrop!

We spent the afternoon setting up for this shoot so we could get the perfect afternoon light. All week I was so worried about the rain. If any of you lovelies are from North Carolina, you know that it has rained so much! I prayed all week for the rain to hold off and our prayers were answered – it was a little chilly and a little windy – but NO RAIN! We were going for a summer feel for these images all while shivering in the cold. All of our vendors were troopers, hanging in there with us through it all. Here is the list of amazing people who made this possible – I would recommend these ladies any day!

The Coordinated Bride - Coral Sunset Wedding in North Carolina – Him & Her Photography

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.

MORE ABOUT US

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.

MORE ABOUT US

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.
