Alina and Brandon change their plans for a beautiful, spring micro-wedding at Burke Manor in Gibsonville, NC

Alina and Brandon were supposed to have a big manor wedding surrounded by all of their friends and family, but that was before Covid-19. Instead, they opted to postpone the big party just a little longer and have a micro-wedding at their venue. The Burke Manor was so gracious to allow Alina and Brandon to still have their wedding day when they had originally planned, as well as book the venue for next year’s celebration.

While this was the first time I (Josh) had met Alina or Brandon, we had spoken on the phone many times leading up to their wedding as they had questions about planning, shot lists, and just plain because they had never done this before! Then when the pandemic hit and their wedding was pushed to next year and their original date became a micro-wedding, we had even more conversations as we were both entering completely new territory – but that’s what we are here for, to be a resource for our brides. Alina’s other vendors were also extremely gracious. These stunning yellow florals are from our favorite Ever Be Floral and while their hair and makeup team couldn’t join them due to restrictions, they will be there in the spring.

These two were so cute. Normally I spend most of my time photographing the groom, and while I was able to get some amazing photos of him (I mean come on, he cried tears of joy!) I was able to fully immerse myself in the love these two shared in a way I haven’t been able to do in a while.

One thing we have learned during our “new normal” is that it doesn’t take many people to have a full heart. With their parents, their best friends, and their adorable daughter, they said their vows and became a family. That’s really all a wedding takes – two people that love each other and a desire to commit to forever. We are so blessed that we were asked to document these special, sacred moments and we are thrilled to be going back to celebrate with this family next spring.

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.
