Who We Are
We enjoy the simple things, like evenings spent with friends, found love notes from one another, and fresh air. We feel the most alive when our hearts are pounding from a hike, a good rock climb, or a car ride with the windows down (you get the idea). We believe the best stories are usually sitting in front of us and believe happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. We love each other, life, the stories we have the honor of documenting, and the people in them.

Where I’m From

I was born and raised in the middle of North Carolina near Raleigh. Not gonna lie, it was boring. I went to UNC School of the Arts in Winston Salem for part of high school which was pretty cool. After that, I moved to Boone to chase a boy (it didn’t work out). I fell in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains there. Six years later I’m a self-proclaimed elopement photographer living in Asheville with the love of my life and a puppy. Who knows where I’ll be later.

What I love

To be quite honest, there’s a lot of things that I love. It’s hard to come up with a list because the world is so vast and I’ve only experienced a sliver of it. But in my time on earth, there are a few specific things that I’ve come to love dearly-

The first deep breath you take after reaching the peak of a hike. Laughing so hard your face hurts. Finally sending a climbing route I’ve been working on for weeks. Trying something new and failing, failing, failing, until I don’t. Creating something new for the sole purpose of creation. Alex.

My Why

I create because I can’t imagine doing anything else. I create like I need to breathe. Being an elopement photographer has led me to remarkable people, awe-inspiring landscapes, and emotional moments. And I wouldn’t trade it for a dang thing. You have an entire universe inside of you. I want to photograph that.
