Max Patch Photo | Asheville wedding and adventure photographerpintopinterest The view from the top of Max Patch is unparalleled!! Head there pretty much anytime (except during a rain storm when the top of the mountain is sure to be socked in by fog and clouds) and you’re truly in for a treat! It’s about a 15 minute hike to the top of this big grassy bald mountain and you’re rewarded with 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains with Mount Mitchell to the east and the Great Smokies sprawling to the south. We were lucky enough to take one of our adventurous couples up there the day after their wedding for a few sunset portraits! Being a pretty short hike for a high-reward view, it’s a perfect place to have a mountaintop wedding ceremony. We can’t wait to photograph our first elopement on top of Max Patch!

If you’re looking for an amazing mountaintop location for an adventure engagement session in the Asheville area, this is a perfect place!

Our family loves bringing a picnic lunch (or even dinner, possibly from one of Asheville’s awesome restaurant’s). While camping is not allowed on top of Max Patch, stargazing is a popular activity!! Being about an hour from civilization, there are no city lights hindering a perfect dark sky!

For any of our couples thinking about great locations for engagement pictures or even planning an elopement… We’re always up for an adventure, and Max Patch is an adventure worth taking!!!

chinese wedding portrait under cherry treespintopinterest I have been looking forward to Hei Man and Herbert’s wedding at MeadowView Resort in Tennessee for a long while now! You see, one of my favorite parts of traveling is getting the opportunity to experience other cultures and traditions – When Hei Man and Herbert filled me in on their plans for their wedding day I was thrilled to hear that they were planning to honor their culture and do a tradition Chinese tea ceremony.
In true Chinese tradition, the first ceremony commenced and Herbert had to do whatever the bridesmaids requested of him in order to see his bride. After donning hula skirts and lei’s Herbert (or maybe I should say Herbert’s feet) braved a bucket of ice water, wrote a poem of love (in Chinese) and then proceeded to read said poem a loud to family and friends in attendance… All before being allowed to see his beautiful bride! Herbert gladly completed every single challenge the ladies threw at him and all to see his bride. Hei Man wore a beautiful red traditional Chinese dress as they served both her and Stephen’s parents tea to honor them for everything they have done to raise them.

A special thanks to Gabrielle from Gabrielle Von Heyking Photography for shooting with me this weekend! traditional chinese wedding details by asheville wedding photographerpintopinterest chinese tea ceremony gamespintopinterest A little peak at effort Hebert made to see his beautiful bride during the Chinese Tea Ceremony games. traditional chinese tea ceremony photopintopinterest chinese tea ceremony wedding photopintopinterest Hei Man and Herbert first served tea to Hei Man’s elders before heading to Herbert’s parents house to serve tea to his. traditional chinese tea ceremony photopintopinterest chinese tea ceremony wedding photopintopinterest After the Chinese Tea Ceremony the rain had stopped and we were able to sneak Hei Man and Herbert out for some portraits under these beautiful cherry trees! chinese wedding portrait under cherry treespintopinterest The cherry trees at MeadowView Resort made a perfect backdrop against Hei Man’s traditional red Chinese dress!!! chinese wedding portraits in tennesseepintopinterest beautiful chinese bridepintopinterest I wasn’t sure anything could top Hei Man’s beautiful red dress but when she donned her wedding gown… Wow.

Chincoteague Island wedding photographerpintopinterest Last summer we headed to the north east to photograph Jordan and Joe’s beautiful destination wedding. We had a few extra days and chose to visit a place I haven’t been since I was a kid… Chincoteague Island. Oh how I fell in love with this quaint island with beautiful beaches and wild ponies on the loose. It was so nice to take a couple days to play on the beach with our kids. I’ll make sure to share more images from our trip soon, but for now I wanted to share just this one!

The beach on Chincoteague… Oh the beach… It was so so gorgeous and the kids absolutely loved frolicking in the warm waves. We would love to head back for another family trip or maybe even a destination wedding!
