Clarissa and James Celebrate their engagement at New Orleans City Park

Today, Clarissa and James will celebrate their wedding day in Daytona Beach. We were supposed to join them, but Covid caused us to change our plans. Since we can’t celebrate with them in person, we thought we could celebrate their wedding day on our blog by sharing their engagement session!

When visiting family in New Orleans back in December, we were so happy to find out that James had proposed! Josh has known Clarissa since she was a little girl. Their families have worked together doing ministry for years, so it was truly a blessing to be able to photograph their engagement session.

It was gloomy, rainy, and a little chilly, but we decided to brave the weather and head downtown to City Park. This is one of our favorite places in New Orleans. If you are ever there – please visit! There is so much to do, especially if you have children.

The trees in New Orleans are absolutely magical. I’m a sucker for Spanish moss.

After a quick wardrobe change, we headed over to the other side of the park. Clarissa, a Cowboys fan, and James, a Steelers fan, had a little…..premarital counseling to work out! I think they came to terms with each other by the end!

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.
