Are you new to the Carolina’s? Do you dream of a wedding or honeymoon in the High Country? Then I suggest you book a photo session with one of our many amazing photographers at one of several breathtaking locations! An arm’s length (or selfie stick) picture is cute in some ways but it is nice to have pictures of you and your significant other by an actual professional photographer that includes the entire background scenery.
A few of my favorite photographers include:
Rob+Kristen specialize in wedding photography and for good reason! They love love and desire to create beautiful art while serving others. Each picture they capture is evidence of the passion they have for their clients special day.
Joyful Hearts is owned by Hilary Pearce. I have worked with her a couple times this year in various locations and it was an enjoyable experience each time!
