Choosing the Perfect Spot

Mario’s decision to propose at Summerfield Farms was no coincidence. This stunning location, known for its idyllic landscapes and sustainable practices, provided the perfect setting for their new beginning. The farm’s commitment to natural beauty made it the ideal choice for a surprise proposal. The wooded area behind the Pole Barn offered a secluded yet breathtakingly beautiful setting for this life-changing moment.

A Family Affair

In the weeks leading up to the proposal, Mario embarked on a secret mission. He colluded with both families to plan the perfect surprise for Michelle. His family played a pivotal role, arriving early at the farm to set up a picturesque picnic spot. It was complete with an arch, vibrant flowers, and sentimental pictures that chronicled the couple’s journey together. This meticulous preparation underscored the love and support that surrounded Mario and Michelle. They set the stage for a proposal filled with emotion and beauty.

The Perfect Distraction

Meanwhile, Michelle’s best friend, Olga, played the crucial role of the distractor. She ensured Michelle remained unaware of the day’s true significance. Olga concocted a plan that not only got Michelle to the farm but also ensured she was photo-ready. The element of surprise was paramount, and thanks to Olga’s ingenuity, everything fell perfectly into place.

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.
