Charleston Wedding Photography – Woodlands Mansion in Summerville, SC

Beautifully lit image of Woodlands Mansion lit up at dusk.

An amazing and slightly outrageous wedding venue near Charleston, SC.



“During the Second World War, Mr. White felt it was his patriotic duty to entertain servicemen with extremely lavish parties on his estate. Debutantes were invited to these well-chaperoned events to engage in tennis, dancing, singing and even roller skating through the halls and rooms of the mansion.” ~ Taken from http://www.woodlandsmansion.com/about


First I saw the image. Then I read the quote above on Woodlands about page. I love this place!


Ariel and I are less than a year from living in North Carolina and we can’t wait to start interacting with venues like the Woodlands Mansion. Few places in America can claim heritage like that.


I presume that the roller skating is no longer permitted…but the venue is still a place that Ariel and I hope to photograph in the near future.


Asheville Wedding Venues | Wedding Photographers Dream

Sunset at The Biltmore Estate, Ashville NC Wedding Venue

Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC – Photographer not Credited

Most of our clients know Ariel and I as Boston Wedding Photographers. So why are we posting information on Asheville North Carolina Wedding Venues? The answer is simple…Winter!

Ariel and I actually live up in Plymouth, New Hampshire. We still have snow on the ground up here!! This past winter was brutal and while I love winter. Ariel grew up mostly between Hawaii and North Carolina. She’s done with winter, and after this last winter….I can no longer blame her.

So now we come to the Asheville Wedding Venues post, a Wedding Photographers Dream…after a winter like this. Simply put, we are looking to expand our client base and start offering our wedding photography in more areas…areas with longer wedding seasons…areas with winters that never see -40 degree wind chills<~~~ a regular occurrence in January and February up here!

Ariel spent a good chunk of her childhood in North Carolina and still has family in the area. Flights between Charlotte and Boston are cheap. Not to mention that from a North Carolina base we have easy access to 10 different cities and countless country wedding venues!

We are very excited about the idea of splitting our wedding photography season between New England and the North Carolina area. So excited in fact that we will be posting info over the coming months about venues and vendors in the area that we are excited to work with in the coming seasons! Today I am just posting 3 Asheville North Carolina Wedding Venues that have caught our eye!

Biltmore Estate Winery, Asheville, NC Wedding Venue

Asheville Wedding Venue One | The Biltmore Estate

The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina is simply amazing!! Built in 1895 by George Vanderbilt this 250 room chateau is on the short list of venues that I would visit even if we never photograph a wedding there! The grounds offer more opportunities for photos than any wedding photographer would dare ask for but when you add in the village and winery you could easily dedicate a half a day to couples portraits at this amazing venue!! Ariel and I can not wait to photograph our fist Wedding at The Biltmore Estate!!

The Bohemian Hotel Lobby, Asheville, NC Wedding Venue

Bohemian Hotel | Photographer not Credited

Asheville Wedding Venue Two | The Bohemian

One look at the lobby of this hotel and I was hooked!! A group of guys in this setting drinking scotch and smoking cigars would make for a groomsmen photograph that no photographer could pass up!! The Bohemian is definitely on our short list!! Located about halfway between the Biltmore Estate and Asheville the Bohemian is perfect for Wedding Photographs. Asheville Wedding Photography here we come!!

The Omni Grove Park, Asheville Wedding Venue

Omni Grove Park Inn | Photographer not Credited

Asheville Wedding Venue Three | The Omni Grove Park

Maine Wedding Photographers

AMW Studios is excited to be advertising with Wedding Wire in Maine! I know, we moved to New Hampshire and now we are advertising in Maine? Trust us, it makes sense. As wedding photographers in New Hampshire we are easily able to travel to Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts. Since we get the fewest inquiries right now for Maine…we decided to start using Wedding Wire to advertise there.

Don’t worry, we are still advertising ourselves in Boston and we will continue to push for more New Hampshire weddings. We just thought we would take a moment to throw it out there that we are now pushing in Maine as well!

New Hampshire Wedding Photography Team

AMW Studios is a New Hampshire based wedding photography team. Ariel and I work together to photograph every wedding that we book together. Our days are spent eight feet apart at our desks in our home office and together we raise our son Aydon. Teamwork has become second nature to us.

I am not trying to say that we never disagree. In fact, we do disagree about quite a few things. However, those disagreements and how we work through them are the reason that we function so well as a team.

Our new home in New Hampshire is the best thing that has happened to our photography since we started. We live where we play. New Hampshire is an amazing place to be…and to be a wedding photographer.

Portraits in the Mountains of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine

Ariel and I are thrilled about the fact that we are beginning to offer portrait sessions for families and individuals in the Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, mountains, lakes and wilderness.

Portrait Sessions in the White Mountain National Forest

The White Mountain National Forest is breathtaking. Ariel and I are overwhelmingly excited to be offering portrait sessions here. Among the many session options we are beginning to offer in the White Mountains of New Hampshire are our new “Adventure Days”.

The idea is basically to create a session that covers a day of fun. Whether it is hiking, climbing, boating, swimming or any other activity.

In the end you get some amazing imagery of the scenery along the way, the wild life and of course you and the people you are with.
