Kaitlin & Jeremy // Blue Ridge Parkway

The Branding Experience



I'm a NC based brand photographer (but I love to travel for work+fun). Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, and in another life (maybe this one) I'd probably move to Waco, TX!

I'm always down to try a new local coffee shop (even better if they have lavender latte), and working on mastering the perfect at home brew recipe. 


I love these two so much. I have so many great things to say about this day. Let’s start with how laid back and fun this adventure was! Kaitlin & Jeremy knew they didn’t want a huge wedding and I am so glad they stuck with that. They even made it more simpler and went and did the ceremony at the courthouse and then we took a weekend and went up to Asheville in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains to do their bride & groom portraits! Kaitlin picked a maid of honor and close friend to come up with them as well to celebrate so that was fun! Kaitlin & Erin went to Eclipse Salon in Asheville to have their hair done. There I joined them for lunch and then we set of to their super cute AirBnb to get ready! Kaitlin & Erin did their own make-up which made it relaxing and we moved at our own pace. While the ladies were getting ready, Jeremy was downstairs finishing up his man-bun and getting dressed. Shortly after most of the getting ready was done, I pulled Jeremy outside to get some groom photos done. I loved his man-bun so I had to get lots of photos of that, hehe! Once Kaitlin was dressed, we did a first look in the front yard. From there, we jumped in the cars and caravanned through the Parkway! It was a dreamy day and I am so happy with the results!
