It is officially Winter Wedding season and I thought we could kick it off with a look back at this beautiful Asheville Winter Wedding at the Loralei Inn.

Last January I had the pleasure of joining several other wonderful photographers and vendors to capture wedding inspiration at the Loralei Inn. This beautiful venue is just outside of Asheville, NC. I love traveling to Asheville any and every chance I get!

The Inspiration

In a previous blog, I described the Five Ways a Styled Shoot Can Elevate Your Business, and of course this shoot was no different. I was able to connect with several vendors and maintain those relationships to this day. The strongest relationship I built there was with the amazing hair and makeup artist Haley of Beauty by Haley Garber. She has become a good friend and above all is just an amazing person!

This beautiful, warm color palette is beautifully captured in the flower design by Sweet Tea Flowers, Inc. Next, the gown, complete with faux fur shawl, and tux were provided by the shoot’s host Glamour and Grind. The teal tux is probably my favorite part of the entire shoot! I love a groom that isn’t afraid of color. Finally, the models! The adorable couple that were part of the shoot are an actual married couple. They are also in the wedding industry. They have their own videography company Nick Jess Films.

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.


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.


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.
