Who We Are

We love wedding photography! Its the reason we are together at all really. We met at a photography workshop in Murphy, NC, and we’ve been together almost every day since! The first time we said “I love you” to each other was at a wedding we were photographing. Our enjoyment of working together to document so many wonderful weddings is one of the things that makes our marriage so strong. We are Emile and Chad, and we are Appalachian Wedding Photography.

Emilie and Chad


Its our goal to have more than just a client and vendor relationship. We want to enjoy working together and hope that relationship extends beyond your wedding day or photoshoot. Many of our clients come visit us months and years after their wedding, and we love it!

If we’re not shooting weddings, homeschooling, or doing one of the other many things modern families have to do, we’re probably at our favorite spot at Nottley Lake. Come see us and we’ll show you!
