Burton Photography – The Farm, Asheville, NC
We photographed a gorgeous fall wedding for a fellow professional photographer’s daughter. The only thing more stunning than the incredible scenery was the beautiful bride.
I love the moments right before the ceremony when the bride and her father are preparing to walk down the aisle together and walk into a new stage of their relationship. It is often a tender, quiet time to reflect on what they mean to one another and the significance of having a special father/daughter relationship.
We were very honored to photography this wedding for Manny Cruz of Cruz Portrait. Design. His studio is located in Bradenton, Florida.

Burton Photography, Eseeola Wedding… Sometimes, it DOES rain on a wedding day here in the High Country. But that doesn’t mean that beautiful wedding day photography isn’t possible. In fact, with inclement weather, we can often get very creative, unique images. So while I know a bride isn’t wishing for her beautiful venue to go to weather “plan B”, we can still create gorgeous images – especially if the bride and groom have a spirit of adventure like Anne and Josh! Elizabeth Hempfling of Events by Elizabeth Ashley held everything together seamlessly and the folks at Eseeola are just fantastic to work with.

Blowing Rock engagement session, Boone engagement session… We met Keith and Breanna in the park off Main Street in Blowing Rock, NC on a freezing cold day (14 degrees with the snow pouring down) for their engagement session. This is where they met while they were both in middle school! Our next stop was some gorgeous property in Boone, NC and the magnificent Shire horses that pulled the beautiful carriage by Appalachian Carriage, Inc (Aaron Norris, owner). Breanna and Keith broght the Flxible Flyer Sled and the fun continued. We’re photographing Breanna and Keith’s wedding in October and are so looking forward to capturing the romance and beauty of their special day, Boone United Methodist Church and Blowing Rock Country Club.

Blowing Rock, NC Wedding

January 25th, 2015

Caroline and Ben had THE PERFECT fall weekend for a Blowing Rock, NC wedding. The day began at Westglow Resort and Spa where Caroline got ready and Ben met her for their “first look”. We had time to create a few beautiful portraits as the rain stopped and clouds lifted before heading to Blowing Rock for the ceremony location, St. Mary’s of Hills Episcopal Church. Sam Addison of Air Haven Limousine transported the bride and groom in style driving the unforgettable Excalibur to the ceremony site as well as the reception held at Blowing Rock Country Club.. Flowers were provided by Park Place Florist of Blowing Rock. Caroline was especially happy with the flower covered chandeliers! The wedding was coordinated by Elizabeth Hemfling of Events by Elizabeth Ashley.  We loved being part of Caroline and Ben’s wedding day.
