Sign us up for all of the engagement sessions at historic farms with big barns and tall grass! The Ivy Place has all of that and more.

Drew and Nichole starting looking for wedding venues before they were technically engaged. When they stepped onto the property at The Ivy Place, they fell in love. As they walked toward the back of the 33 acres, they saw the huge oak tree standing tall in the middle of the field and just knew that was the magic spot. They decided that they would be married under that oak tree.

When we talked with Drew and Nichole during our initial consultation you could feel the excitement as they described the venue. Later, when we were planning their engagement session, they insisted we use the Ivy Place before heading to Downtown Waxhaw for a few more photos and dinner.

Upon Arriving at the Ivy Place, we understood what they had been saying – It was beautiful! Not just the fields and barns, but also the stately farmhouse where Nichole will be getting ready on her wedding day, and the beautifully manicured gardens around the house – they all showed a great deal of care has been placed into this venue.

Getting to know The Ivy Place and Nichole and Drew was so special. They are the sweetest couple with lots of big dreams. After the session, they even treated us to dinner at their favorite Irish Pub, Mary O’Neils, in downtown Waxhaw. We had wonderful food and even better conversation. We truly can’t wait for their wedding in April and to spend this special time with them!

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.
