Sara and Josiah are the most precious couple. They were interested in an Outdoor Elopement, preferably in the mountains. They found me online and loved a mountain wedding session I had captured at Max Patch and loved it. After making a trip to the location, they decided it was the perfect destination for their Mountain Elopement and booked me through my Elopement package.
A Day, Ten Years in the Making
Boho Asheville Outdoor Mountain Elopement
“Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.” —Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Working alongside Amy and Chad was a wonderful experience! These two decided on having an elopement on top of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, and wow, what a great day it was! Filled with smiles, laughter and love, this special day was nothing short of perfect. I love elopements, as they are so personal, intimate, and laid back for everyone involved. Amy and Chad are an amazing couple, and I am so happy for them.
These two chose an elopement package with beautiful flowers by Flourish Flower Farm https://www.flourishflowerfarm.com/ If you are unfamiliar with this company, you’ve gotta check them out! Their floral arrangements are some of the most beautiful I’ve seen yet, and they never fail to leave my clients speechless! My elopement packages make it easy for people to prepare for their big day, as I provide some of the planning and details, so my clients don’t have to! It makes the days prior and the actual elopement stress-free.
Amy and Chad came up from Florida to elope, and I am so glad they made their way to our beautiful state! We had a gorgeous day at Black Balsam knob with beautiful blue skies, perfect to show off our Blue Ridge mountains. We couldn’t have asked for a prettier background! Amy looked stunning – I loved her green shawl, especially paired with the boho style flower crown and bouquet from Flourish Flower Farm. The colors looked great together. Chad was super handsome as he said his vows and married the love of his life! These two are truly a beautiful couple. I am so happy for them on this new journey in their life! I wish them many more amazing adventures together!

I had a great time capturing this sweet family on their Elopement Day. Their images turned out beautifully. I was able to capture Lindsey and Tim’s loving and laid back attitudes and the spunk of their little girl Gentry. This three year old cutie keeps everyone smiling and laughing. They came down from Virginia for their Mountaintop Elopement.
Love and the Littlest Cowgirl
Black Balsam off of Blue Ridge Parkway is the perfect ceremony spot. The mountains were in their full glory for Tim and Lindsey. The grays, blues and whites are so vibrant creating the perfect back drop for the couple during their exchanging of vows. Having Gentry there for her parents special day is the cherry on top of these photos. Kids always add an energy and excitement to any session; and this was no different. Gentry stole the show. She was thrilled to be a part of the Elopement and is not one bit shy. She looked adorable in her matching flower crown to Mom. All of the flowers were gorgeous. Flourish Flower Farm always does an amazing job.
We were able to capture some stunning bridal images of Lindsey in her lovely crocheted shawl. The yellow creates amazing contrast against the color pallet that the mountains provide. Lindsey is so happy. She and Tim had a few moments to share some sweet exchanges, while I captured bride and groom pictures. I loved Chris’ dark hearts and vest. I was really exited to capture the three all together though. It was a special day for them all and capturing that memory as a family was something I felt honored to do.
I am so happy this family chose me to be their Asheville Mountaintop Elopement Photographer. Gentry is one lucky cowgirl to have parents like Lindsey and Tim who share so much love for each other and for her. I know these pictures will be worth a thousand words for this sweet family!
I loved capturing this sweet couple at this adorable little chapel nestled in the Smoky Mountains. I knew from the start that this couple would be a dream to work with. We had a rainy weekend and had to reschedule the wedding, but the happy couple took it all in stride. They ended up exchanging their vows on the Bride’s Birthday!
Cataloochee Birthday Dream
Brittany and Jordan are such a sweet couple. Brittany is such a beautiful bride. Jordan is beaming with pride as he takes her as his wife, for now and for always. Although not what they had originally planned, their Cataloochee Elopement was perfect. Palmer Chapel is a sweet little gem nestled in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. It is tucked away in a grove of trees with the mountains in sight and fields and streams surrounding it all. Nature is all around this dream location which makes for incredible natural scenic backgrounds for our lovely couple.
I love being able to capture their laid back personalities and love of the outdoors as part of their elopement package. The duo dancing in the open field with the Smoky Mountains in the distance melts my heart. Being there to capture their stroll along the stream is a touching memory that I am happy to be a part of. The wait was worth it.
This Bride had the happiest Birthday near the Cataloochee River. What an honor to witness this couple become one as their Smoky Mountains Elopement Photographer!
There is nothing better than being atop the Blue Ridge Mountains with a beautiful couple tying the knot. Yvonne and John are such an amazing couple, and I love every minute I spend with them. These two came up to Asheville from Beaufort, NC to elope at Black Balsam, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day. I enjoy celebrating and capturing the love that these two share.
Spring Romance Blooms at Black Balsam
April has got to be one of the most beautiful times of the year. The wildlife is stunning, and the warm weather was perfect for this elopement. One of my favorite touches added to Yvonne and John’s big day was the bright spring colors in the bouquet. They decided to go with my Elopement Package, which includes flowers, cake, champagne, and videography. The people who help to make all of this happen are truly amazing at what they do! Michael DeSerio officiated the wedding, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day filled with love and intimacy. Yvonne and John were beautiful as they exchanged vows. They are so in love and I am proud to have documented such a special time for them.
We were able to take some photos hiking in the forest afterwards, and I loved how this turned out! The trees and the couple were absolutely breathtaking. It was so easy to capture these amazing moments! Yvonne and John plan to have a big party next month to celebrate with their friends and family. I am so thankful for this experience. There are no words to describe how blessed I am to work with such kind hearted folks. Congratulations to these two on their new journey. They will have a lifetime of endless love and happiness!
The simplicity of this day was just beautiful. A cool breeze in the air, a couple in love, and vows exchanged make me remember why I love being a Mountaintop Elopement Photographer!
