Wilderlove Elopement in the hills of Asheville, North Carolina

WILDERLOVE: A love without reservation or premonition. An innocent, childlike love. A love that’s wild and almost instinctual. Sometimes as a photographer, you get really lucky, photographing Dylan and Lauren’s elopement was like watching two souls dance with no one in sight. As I planned this shoot I knew I wanted to use nature as the major inspiration, it’s in nature that we come fully alive. The shoot took place near the rolling hills and farm venues in Asheville, North Carolina just after an afternoon shower, the two shared heartfelt vows and danced the evening away in the crystal clear water.

Chris and Baileigh were seriously one of the best dressed couples I've ever been able to photograph! Baileigh is super passionate about style, she was kind enough to give me a vision board for their shoot.. it did not dissapoint! Baileigh was so encouraging with her kind words once she saw the full gallery, let me tell you kind words never get old in this industry. - thank you for the affirmation and for making this dream possible for me! I love my clients! This shoot took place during sunrise in downtown Jacksonville and San Marco district of Jacksonville, Florida. All images were shot on film.
