Today is Emily and Levi’s wedding day at Moore’s Springs Manor, where we were able to photograph their engagement session! This was our first time at Moore’s Springs Manor and we absolutely fell in love with this beautiful wedding venue. We can’t wait to be back today, especially with all of the fall colors!

Meeting Emily was a total coincidence that has turned into us being blessed to have one of our most amazing couples ever! I had been helping at one of my favorite local bridal shops, Southern Bride at the Factory, and Emily came in to try on wedding gowns. While she was trying on, I noticed she had picked one of my favorite dresses on the floor. When she tried it on, it fit her perfectly, like it was made for her! I told her how I had fallen in love with that dress and I was so happy it had found the perfect bride! She asked for my information and the rest is history.

As we were planning for their engagement session, we discussed locations and she mentioned they were invited back to the Manor for their engagement photos. We decided to spend most of our time there, but Emily had mentioned how much she loved the waterfalls at Hanging Rock State Park. Since Hanging Rock is a short drive from the venue, we ended our time there.

We started at the beautiful landscaping behind the main house. The gazebos and topiaries make the perfect backdrop!

From there, we moved on to one of my most favorite spots, the greenhouse! I dream of oneway having a greenhouse like this!

After a quick outfit change, we found this beautiful field of wildflowers. These are probably my favorite images from the day. These colors are so dreamy!

For our final engagement photos, we took the short drive over to Hanging Rock State Park and hiked over to the Upper Cascades. These two are just so perfect together.

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.
