Here are a few photos from Amanda’s lovely bridal photo session. Being Asheville wedding photographers, we were on our home turf shooting at the locations we did. We started at the North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville, NC and then got a few photos on the Blue Ridge Parkway at sunset. We love shooting landscapes and nature photography on our beautiful Parkway so it was a lot of fun to have a bride complimenting the scenery. Amanda was fantastic on her bridal session, as was her mom who came along with us. Sometimes wedding photographers just need an awesome mom to assist on a photography shoot!
Her wedding was last week in Maggie Valley so we are now able to share these with you! We admit… when we shoot a bridal weeks (or months) before a wedding and can’t show them off right away, we get impatient. But we always wait because you never know if the groom might start snooping online or on our blog :)
We had a great time working with the natural sunlight at The Arboretum in Asheville. Wedding photographers and brides have asked about the first two photos and how we did that. It’s no trickery, just the sun directly behind her creating a cool “flare”. We love using natural lighting in addition to creative flash techniques. We use what we got and use what we bring. Lighting is such a crucial part of our profession and we enjoy using it and controlling it on all types of shoots.

Love these pictures, in particular the lighting effect on the first two
Lovely images, what a great area to take photographs, how did you get the bride to dawn her dress before the big day in such a potentially dirty environment. I hope that she is nothing but thrilled with the photographs, you did a great job.
