Family adventure photos at Dupont State Parkpintopinterest Oh my gosh…this puppy…our puppy…is now a 40-lb. monster puppy!!! Denali has changed so much! She is still as cute as ever – just like… 5x her original size! These are a few favorite images from a little adventure we took this past winter, as our family ventured to nearby Dupont State Forest for some fun waterfall exploration! If you haven’t been to this gem in Western NC – go! It’s stunningly beautiful! In the wintertime icicles line the falls. In summertime the river and even the base of popular Hooker Falls offer great swimming!! We head there often for walks in the woods and waterfall exploration! I also love shooting engagement and bridal sessions here.

fun family portrait in flat rock nc pintopinterest I had so much fun photographing this beautiful family at the Carl Sandburg home in Flat Rock NC, just 10 minutes outside the town of Hendersonville.

The variety that exists in a fairly small area is amazing! carl sandburg pond in flat rock nc during fallpintopinterest Fall is a gorgeous time to visit the Carl Sandburg home, as is spring when all the baby goats are born!

bridal portrait at brown mountain beach resortpintopinterest Oh what fun I had photographing beautiful Jordan’s bridal portraits at the stunning Brown Mountain Beach Resort in Collettsville, right at the base of Linville Gorge (arguably, one of my favorite hiking places in the NC mountains). Photographing Jordan just a couple weeks before she and Fernando would tie the knot at Brown Mountain Beach made me even more excited for their wedding!

I’m so excited to share these photos and look forward to sharing images from their fall wedding at Brown Mountain Beach Resort! cowboy boots at an asheville mountain weddingpintopinterest Loved Jordan’s cowboy boots with her wedding dress!

Those of you who know me know I look for pretty much any opportunity to climb anything. Well, once I got up there I was high enough to shoot between a few muscadine leaves that made a perfect frame for Jordan… I think the climb was worth it 🙂 brown mountain beach resort wedding pintopinterest AMW Studios – an Asheville Wedding Photography studio run by Ariel and Matt – We are located in the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and available for destination wedding photography worldwide… We specialize in creating modern + dynamic imagery for adventurous couples.

asheville wedding photographer visits the grand canyonpintopinterest May all your trails be crooked, lonesome, winding, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you. – Edward Abbey

The Grand Canyon is easily one of the most spectacular places I’ve traveled to. The photo above was taken during a very short camping trip on the North Rim. I look forward to returning to take many more images of this magical place soon….

looking glass falls senior portraitpintopinterest Our kiddos’ all-time favorite sitter from NH traveled down here to the mountains of Asheville for a visit! Naturally I offered to take some senior portraits of Mikala while she was visiting. She is currently wrapping up her last year of high school and will be headed off to Husson College in Maine this fall!!! So excited to see where life leads her – she is such a smart, beautiful, fun young lady….

We were able to sneak in a few photos before we got stuck in a monsoon with thunder and lightning all around while we were up on top of Craggy Garden. craggy garden senior portraitspintopinterest spring senior portrait at craggy gardenspintopinterest This tree on the path to the top of Craggy Pinnacle is such a cool spot to stop and take photos. blue ridge parkway senior sessionpintopinterest rhododendron tunnel senior photopintopinterest blue ridge parkway senior portraitspintopinterest Love this girl and her laughter! boone senior portait pintopinterest adventure senior portrait on the blue ridge parkwaypintopinterest I was convinced that if we waited long enough the storm would pass and we could make our way to the top.
