The Beauty of Poppy Fields

Poppy fields are known for their vibrant, colorful blooms. They create a stunning and whimsical backdrop for any type of portrait session. The delicate, papery petals of the flowers add a touch of romance and whimsy. It makes them the perfect choice for family and couple’s portraits. The poppy fields at Dogwood Farms in Belews Creek are full of stunning red blooms! We can expect these blooms at some point during the month of April.

The Magic of Golden Hour

Golden hour is the brief window of time just after sunrise and just before sunset. It is the perfect time for capturing a portrait session in a poppy field. The soft, warm light during this time of day creates a dreamy, ethereal atmosphere that is perfect for highlighting the beauty of the flowers. Whether you want a senior, family, maternity, bridal, or engagement session, golden hour is our favorite time of day for stunning portraits!

Creating a Beautiful Portrait Session in a Poppy Field

To create the perfect portrait in a poppy field, it’s important to plan the shoot carefully. We always scout out the location beforehand to find the best spot with the most vibrant poppy blooms. The most important element is the direction of the sun and how it will illuminate our subjects.

We always try to capture candid moments and expressions to truly capture the personalities and connections of our subjects. We love to experiment with different compositions and angles to add visual interest to your photos.

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.
