AMW Studios | Modern & Dynamic Asheville Wedding Photographers » Asheville & Destination Wedding Photography for Adventurous Couples

We (Matt and I) packed up our gear on one of the many rainy Saturdays we’ve had this year and drove to the Liberty Hotel where Tira and her fiancee, Matt were getting ready for their wedding that evening. They were such a wonderful couple to photograph, Tira was a ham in front of the camera and made photographing her quite easy! She was an unbelievably good sport about the fact that the gorgeous view that 60 State st. is known for would probably not be visible because of the rain and fog enveloping the city. The wedding was beautiful and Tira and Matt were an absolute joy to photograph. Thank you, for letting us be a part of your day and congratulations to both of you! Here are a few photographs!

I’ve been a little behind on blog updates. Matt, Aydon and I spent a wonderful week in New york with Matt’s family for Thanksgiving. Aydon of course loved being there, it meant more people to pay attention to him and since he’s now eating solid foods… Lot’s of yummy new things to try. Anyways, now that we’re back home there are lots of things to get caught up on; blog posts being a big one. I have lots of new things to share including; many photographs of recent weddings, an informative post about albums including pictures of our new sample wedding album and a new slideshow we’ve just designed to show of our best work from 2009! Check back later on for Tira and Matt’s wedding at the State Room in Boston!

AMWPhotos includes engagement sessions in all of our packages and we have a blast doing them! We love getting to know our couples outside the hustle and bustle of your wedding day. Its a time for us to talk one on one, for us to hear about how you met, all the planning you’re putting in to your special day as well as any expectations you may have for your wedding day. Wedding days can be very hectic, engagement sessions are a great way to break the ice so to speak so that when we arrive on your wedding day it doesn’t feel like we’re meeting for the very first time. While Matt and I are interacting with you during your engagement session we are taking time to figure out what your like in front of the camera; what the best angles are, what makes you two laugh and what makes you uncomfortable so that we can really make the most of our time with you on your wedding day. Most importantly the session is a great way to take some time away from the sometimes stressful planning and walk away with a ton of playful, beautiful photos! You can do some pretty cool things with these photographs beside just having them to frame and hang on your walls. Hear are a few ideas; Use them on your Wedding Website Announcements for the local newspaper Guestbooks: AMWPhotos offers custom designed albums laid out in such a way that guests can write their names and notes of congratulations on the pages next to these beautiful photographs. This is a great way to combine your photographs with messages from people you care about Invitations or Save The Dates The list goes on with many ways to incorporate them in to your wedding reception or gifts for your guests. Just a couple quick tips to make the most of your engagement sessions; Try to plan your engagement session on the same day as the trial run for your hair/makeup, wear something that reflects who you are; don’t feel like you have to get dressed up if you’re more of a t-shirt and jeans type of person also don’t feel like the two of you have to match perfectly. The location is up to you, we suggest picking a location that means something to you. We encourage all of our couples to take advantage of our engagement sessions included in our wedding collections!

This fall I had the pleasure of photographing Mike and Matt’s wedding in beautiful Salem, Ma at Hamilton Hall. The ceremony was very intimate and took place in the garden across the street from Hamilton Hall. Mike and Matt were such fun to photograph and I wanted to share a few of my favorite photographs of them!

I’ve been told over and over again that for photographers, social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn are such good ways to attract visitors to your website. I’ve been avoiding Facebook because it was just one more thing that I would have to stay up to date with; today however I broke down and set AMWPhotos up with an account. I’m actually a little bit excited, I think it will be a fun way to share our latest weddings and engagement sessions with family, friends as well as our wonderful couples.
