Destination weddings have easily become a favorite here at AMW Studios! The excitement and adventure of shooting in a new location, we revel in it!! This destination wedding at Atlantic Dance Hall in Walt Disney World was absolutely no exception! It started out with just an engagement session… Lily and Mark originally contacted us a couple years ago as a recommendation from this stunning couple, to shoot their engagement session on the beautiful streets of Boston. We had a blast wandering through the city and they filled us in on the magical wedding they were planning at Disney World… Fast forward a couple months, Lily and Mark asked us if we’d like to be a part of their wedding and of course we said yes!!!

In October we traveled down to Florida and what a blast we had photographing their gorgeous wedding! Lily and Mark are so full of love for each other, anyone in the same room as them can see it!! We are so excited to shared some of our favorite images from their day, we hope you love them!!

Adorable couple poses against a red brick wall during their asheville engagement session pintopinterest

Matt and I met up with Kendra and Donovan just a couple weeks ago in Asheville NC for their urban fall engagement session…What fun we had! These two were troopers and agreed to meet us at 7:30, we try to schedule are engagement sessions as close to sunset or sunrise as possible for the best light and it worked to our benefit that morning because we were treated to nice soft, flattering, morning light.

Although Asheville is new(ish) territory for us as wedding and portrait photographers, I grew up in the area and know downtown Asheville like the back of my hand! We started off their session near the gorgeous Grove Arcarde, wandered to Pack Square and ended their Asheville engagement session on a couple very colorful side streets with beautiful backgrounds!

I can’t tell you how excited I am to officially be able to call AMW Studios an Asheville wedding and engagement photographer.

Remember that trip to the Northeast I mentioned, well the day after Katie and Craig’s wedding we headed to nearby Chatham MA to document Lisa and James’ amazing wedding at Eastward Ho Country Club. While just a bit cold, Lisa and James were graced with perfectly sunny skies… A gorgeous fall day. It was our first time photographing a wedding at the gorgeous Eastward Ho Country Club, we hope to be back!

Lisa was an absolutely gorgeous bride and her and James together are the perfect couple.

We had a blast document their wedding day and we hope you enjoy the pictures!

bride and groom stand on the wychmere beach club lawn with the gorgeous ocean behindpintopinterest

Shortly after AMW Studios move south to Asheville, NC we took a trip back to the northeast to document a few awesome weddings. Katie and Craig’s Cape Cod wedding at the always gorgeous Wychmere Beach Club kicked off our time up north. I knew their wedding was going to be amazing and ever since we met up with these two for their spring engagement session in Boston I’d been looking forward to it! Katie was one of the most relaxed, go with the flow brides… despite the fact that it was cold, windy and threatening rain she was all smiles when I showed up to photograph her and her girls getting ready!

Despite the coldy, windy weather we were able to make it outside for the images of the wedding party as well as some awesome sunset pictures with just Katie and Craig! Their fall beach wedding was an absolute pleasure to photograph and as always we loved getting to shoot at one of our favorite weddings venues on Cape Cod; Longwood Events – Wychmere Beach Club
