Are You Searching for The Best
Engagement Photographer in Asheville?

One-on-One

Photographing what makes your relationship so special is all about getting to know who you are as a couple. We’ll have a complimentary video consultation to discuss how you reached this exciting point in your lives and how you envision celebrating your future together.

Planning

I will be with you every step of the way. We will explore who you are as a couple, and we will build your wedding day around the photography, versus the photography around your day

Wedding Day

This is the fun part! At this point, we’ve had so many interactions planning together and chatting over social media that we’ll be more than prepared for your exciting wedding in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I’ll be ready to act as a guide at the venue or on your hike, on-hand to capture the wedding based on your vision.”

Gallery & Album Delivery

After editing and curating a striking collection of photos that represent the highlights of your wedding day, I make them all available to you online so that you can download them, and have them printed however you like from one gallery and one click.

Your engagement is a huge step as a couple, and you deserve to have it documented by a professional. I’ll give you exactly what you want – a stress-free photoshoot, expert guidance throughout your session, and unforgettable images that tell your love story. Selfies are great, but nothing compares to candid professional images that capture the very moment your partner says “YES!

Through photojournalism, I tell the story of your relationship against the beautiful and dramatic backdrops of the Western North Carolina mountains. Whether you want your engagement photographed at the bottom of a waterfall, mountain cliff at sunset, or amongst the pines, I’ll capture your love in breathtaking fashion.

Asheville Engagement Sessions

Why Have an Engagement Photography Session?

An engagement photos session gives a snapshot of your love story. As a prelude to your wedding, engagement photos are a rare chance to capture the joy and excitement of the occasion

You’ll Get to See a Finished Product

By having an engagement photography session, you’ll get to see what your professional pictures look like and learn what to expect for your wedding photography session. Looking at galleries and portfolios is helpful to get an idea of how your wedding pictures will look, but the only real way to know how yours will turn out is to have them taken. Your engagement photoshoot will give you a preview of what to expect on your wedding day and help you decide which styles and poses you want for your wedding photos.

We’ll Get to Know Each Other

An engagement photo session also provides a great opportunity to get to know your photographer – me! Through the engagement photoshoot, we’ll get to know each other and build rapport months before the wedding. The engagement photo session will also help me become more familiar with you and your spouse-to-be, which helps me capture wedding day moments that are unique to the two of you. When the wedding day arrives, we’ll have already worked together in-person, so you’ll be comfortable around me and my camera. 

Engagement Collections begin at $650 for a 2 hour session + online gallery of high resolution images + unlimited meetings and planning assistance.  Proposals start at $400

Lets Talk About Who You Are as A Couple and Why That Matters

Read What My Couples Say About Their Photography Experience

We had our wedding on 2/29/20, in Asheville. We're not from the area, so we had to plan everything remotely - and Michael made it super easy to do. He is a very genuine and direct person, which made it easier to navigate the whole process. He would text, email, call, even video chat, to get to know us and what we wanted. We do believe getting to know him in this manner helped him better understand us as a couple, and translated to better photos on our big day. He takes fantastic candid/action shots that really captured the moment! We ultimately did two sessions with Michael - an engagement shoot, and the day of wedding. Both sets turned out amazing, and would certainly recommend!

Michael was an absolute blast to work with during the planning process and during the shoot. We were not from the Asheville area so had no input to give on locations but Michael had amazing spots already picked out. He is personable, easy going, and fun to be around. My Husband and I aren't great in front of the camera but Michael made us feel comfortable and the pictures turned out great. We are so incredibly happy with every single photo we got from him. They look effortless and you can tell we were having a great time in them. I would recommend Michael's work a million times over

Frequently Asked Questions About Engagement Photography

The image count is completely dependent on the unique proceedings of each elopement. My goal is always to represent your elopement as authentically as possible through dynamic imagery. On average, assuming you plan to engage in all the traditional customs, I typically deliver around 60-80 images every hour I cover your wedding.

I aim to get all your images edited and delivered to you as quickly as possible while sticking to the gold standard my clients expect from me. Two weeks after we say goodbye we’ll have Sneak Peeks ready for you to look over. We strive to have all your images available in a curated gallery online 45 days after the wedding at the latest.

All of your images are YOURS to keep as soon as I deliver them to you at no charge! After receiving your images in gallery form, you can download them and have them printed by whoever you like! Your gallery will also include a few printing lab recommendations as well.

Yes! If you plan on surprising your partner with a romantic proposal, we’ll coordinate it so that I’ll be hidden right up until the big moment. I’ll capture your partner’s amazement when you get on one knee to pop the question. This is a memory you’ll want to relive as you plan your wedding and for years afterward! You can show instead of tell your friends and family exactly what the engagement was like – and you can use your images for wedding announcements, invitations, and social media.

You get the chance to see what your hair and makeup will look like! A great way to remove all the guesswork about how you’ll look is to have your hair and makeup done during your engagement photoshoot. You’ll be able to see how you look in your chosen style and decide if you’d like to make any hair and makeup changes before your wedding day.
