Downtown Winston-Salem is one of our favorite places to photograph! Being a Photographer in the Triad means knowing how to find the best places downtown and working the light to your advantage.

To celebrate their anniversary and Derek’s upcoming graduation, Callie booked us for a short session in Downtown Winston-Salem. One of our favorite spots is this rooftop! You get such an amazing view of the city. And the light is also so good up here. I hope this year holds many more rooftop sessions!

Callie and Derek made our job so easy. We loved capturing their awesome chemistry and style. If you want to make your photographer excited – show up looking sharp! When our clients show up in outfits that make them look confident and polished, we know the rest of the session is going to go well. We also took a few single photographs of Derek so he would have some updated headshots to use after graduation. He just looked too good in his suit jacket to not take advantage of it!

Another small piece of photography advice – don’t be afraid of an overcast day. Callie was a bit concerned about the possibility of spring storms, but thankfully the rain held off. The clouds act as a natural diffuser and give beautiful even light across the background and the subject. This really allows your colors to pop! The trick is – have the subject face toward the sun so you don’t get dark shadows around the eyes.

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.
