Ashley and Willie have been married for, well… a long time. They are still madly in love, always willing to go on an adventure and were willing to hop back into some wedding clothes for a session at my favorite venue in the high country… The Twickenham House in Jefferson NC.
With this shoot, I wanted it to feel like a movie. I focused on narrative story telling to highlight all the love, passion and emotion that you only get by being a team as long as these two have. The shoot featured a stunning wedding gown and Rolls Royce getaway car added a touch of luxury and old money feel to the shoot, which perfectly complemented the refined elegance of the Twickenham House and Hall wedding venue.
Since this wasn’t their actual wedding day, I had a lot more time to really help steer the day, while still focusing on creating some natural movement, allowing for spontaneous moments and most importantly, getting to drink on the job. We may or may not have shared some White Claws while in hair and makeup and it definitely made the day pretty silly…
As a documentary style wedding photographer, I aim to capture the essence of each couple’s unique love story, and this shoot was no exception. I highly recommend this breathtaking venue to any couples seeking a romantic and unforgettable wedding experience in Jefferson North Carolina.
As a documentary wedding photographer based in Boone, North Carolina, I believe that the importance of capturing genuine moments cannot be overstated. Documentary-style photography is all about capturing the raw emotions and unscripted moments that make your wedding day unique. As a photographer, my focus is on telling your story through a series of candid and authentic photos.
Unlike traditional posed photography, documentary-style photography captures the spontaneity and natural beauty of your day. It allows the story to unfold naturally while allowing you to simply experience those moments naturally. By choosing a documentary-style photographer, you are investing in a wedding album that tells the story of your day in an authentic and meaningful way.
Thanks to Wilcox Travel, we got an amazing Rolls Royce as their ‘getaway’ car. To say I was drooling is an understatement. A luxury car, in front of the stunning manor? Uh that’s what my photographer dreams are made of.
The tradition of using a getaway car at weddings dates back to the early 20th century. This tradition became popular in the United States during the 1920s and 1930s, and it quickly spread around the world. The getaway car symbolizes the couple’s escape from the ceremony and reception, as well as their new life together. It is often decorated with ribbons, balloons, and other decorations, and it serves as a memorable photo opportunity for the newlyweds and their guests. Today, the tradition of the getaway car remains a popular part of many wedding celebrations. I for one, am a big fan. Especially at a venue like The Twickenham House in Jefferson (hear that google?!) The road from the venue to the nearest hotel is a long one, might as well let someone else drive it for you!
Located at an elevation of 4,000 feet in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the cliffside ceremony site at the Twickenham House and Hall is an unforgettable location to exchange vows. It can be a bit of a butt clencher if heights make you nervous, but with views like that… it’s worth it. Don’t even get me started on how absolutely epic sunsets are from there…
