Jason and Lisa- Cherokee Mountain Cabins- Topton, NC

Jason and Lisa decided to elope in the mountains at a place they fell in love with when traveling around seeking adventures together. Cherokee Mountain Cabins caters to elopements and small family weddings.

Lisa wrote me later after she joined her family and shared, "Our pictures you took captured every moment and you are a very talented photographer.  I wanted someone just like you to take the photos.  When I looked at your website, I knew you were the one.  I wanted someone to capture those moments that are not posed- the “real” life moments & you can see the feelings in every pictures.  We looked at the pictures & both said “I didn’t even know she was taking pictures at that moment”!  We have been so pleased with every detail of our wedding day!  Thank you Emilie & Cherokee Mountain Cabins for a PERFECT day we will always remember & cherish!" 

Nick and Victoria- McGuire Millrace Farms - Murphy, NC

I met Nick and Victoria on the dance floor at John C. Campbell Folk School in the middle of a community contra dance about 4 years ago. My son, Liam, told me that he really liked the girl with the gloves. It was Victoria. She was so gracious with my children with her soft smile and her amazing dance moves. I enjoyed watching Nick lead this beauty on the floor. 

Their story starts off with a glance at a gas station (fast forward a week), a bonfire, and a dog bite on Victoria's foot. Thank goodness it was Nick's dog!

It's a happy ever after story.
