While we mostly photograph in the Carolina’s these days, we love going back home to Virginia for our wonderful clients and their gorgeous weddings. I still consider myself a Blacksburg Wedding Photographer. I grew up in those mountains. I still scream GO HOKIES! and my favorite colors are burgundy and orange. I am a SWVA girl through and through.

Ashley is also a SWVA girl, born and bred. She and Dallas held their wedding at the beautiful Appalachian Conference Center in Dublin, just outside Blacksburg.

The bride wanted to wait for Dallas to see her walking down the aisle for the first time, but that didn’t stop her from having a first look with her bridesmaids and her children.

Can you believe this are actually silk florals!? They were designed by Ling’s Moment!

Like mother, like daughter! We were honored to capture this sweet family.

Her dress is by Jerald Norton and she got it on Amazon! This is what she said about her dress:

“I feel in love with a dress almost identical to this one before I even tried it on, I found a shop that had the dress, went to try it on and sure enough it was the one, but it was not in my price range! I came across this one on Amazon for waaay cheaper and momma taught me how to bargain shop even for my wedding!!”

Ashley and Dallas chose the most lovely, romantic shades of burgundy red and blush pink for her color palette. And yes – the colors were a big deal for Dallas, too! Ashley told us he was a little bit of a Groomzilla!  We also love a classic grey suit! This one is from Garrett’s Inc.

Dallas’s reaction was so precious when he saw Ashley coming down the aisle. He was overcome with emotion and couldn’t hold back the tears when he saw his beautiful bride.

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.
