National Storytelling Festival Romance https://www.morganfordphoto.com/blog/2018/10/national-storytelling-festival-romance In early September I had the pleasure of photographing Andy Detiveaux & Jennine Duncan's Wedding at The National Storytelling Center in historic downtown Jonesborough, Tennessee. Their friends & family all flew in from across the country to witness their marriage and celebrate with them in Jennine's hometown. The National Storytelling Center offered the perfect backdrop to their storybook love. 

I have know Jen her whole life and have loved watching her grow into the beautiful person she is today. Andy & Jennine started dating in college and have let nothing stand in the way of their love. Not long after dating Andy had an offer to go play Rugby in Seattle, Washington. They lived on two different sides of the country while Jen finished college in Tennessee and took some time to decide what her next step in life would be. While visiting Andy in Seattle she was introduced to the Seattle's Women's Rugby Team. Shortly after she moved to Seattle to be with Andy and play pro Rugby. She was recently selected for the Women's USA Rugby Team and Andy is and always be her biggest fan! We are so proud of you Jen! 

I wish you two years of happiness and can't wait to see how your love grows for one another!

1st Anniversary Photos https://www.morganfordphoto.com/blog/2018/5/1st-anniversary-photos These two melt my heart. Their love for each other is undeniable. They are celebrating 1 year of marriage and wanted to do something special while visiting Asheville. You all know I love shooting at The Biltmore, so we spent the morning exploring the gardens and dancing in the greenhouse. Now they are off to Hilton Head to spend the rest of the week relaxing and celebration true love!

Biltmore Forest Family Photos https://www.morganfordphoto.com/blog/2017/12/biltmore-forest-family-photos I have known Gwen for little over 3 years, we met while I was working in framing at a Downtown Art Gallery in Asheville. When she mentioned that all her children and grandchildren were going to be spending Thanksgiving at her house I could not be more excited to meet them all. There ultimate goal was to get 1 good photo for their annual Christmas Card but I think we achieved much more than that. I loved seeing all the little ones laugh and play together!

Biltmore Proposal https://www.morganfordphoto.com/blog/2017/11/biltmore-proposal It may be below freezing outside but these two warm my heart. Daniel contacted me a couple of months ago and said he and his girlfriend would be visiting Asheville for the weekend and he would like to propose on their trip. Daniel and Lauren live in Florida where they met playing soccer. Living in Florida, Daniel had no idea the how he was going to plan his proposal without Lauren suspecting anything. I assisted him all the way with detailed maps of The Biltmore, places they should explore, and a strategic location to get down on one knee so I could capture the moment. Unbeknown to me their friends also flew in from Florida to celebrate with them. I got a call about 30 minutes before the proposal was to take place and met their friends in The Biltmore Gardens. We all hid amongst the wisteria and waited for Daniel & Lauren to walk through the gardens. It was a magical affair to say the least. I am so happy for these two. May your lives be filled with Love & Joy!

Senior Pictures @ Lady Luck Flower Farm https://www.morganfordphoto.com/blog/2017/7/Senior-Pictures-Lady-Luck-Flower-Farm Lady Luck Flower Farm is heaven. Sunflowers, dahlias and rolling mountains are a photographers dream.

I recently had the pleasure of photographing Elizabeth for her Senior Portraits at Lady Luck Flower Farm. We spent the afternoon running through the hills, playing in the flowers and being chased by the farm cat. Elizabeth is a senior at A.C. Reynolds High School and I am sure she has a bright future ahead of her!

Spring on the Farm https://www.morganfordphoto.com/blog/2017/4/Spring-on-the-Farm I recently went to Tennessee to photograph these two sweet sisters. They are so luck to grow up on a farm and have a mother that lets them play in the field and pick wild flowers!

I love photographing outdoors with natural light and capturing real moments between people!

Spring Senior Portrait Session https://www.morganfordphoto.com/blog/2017/3/Spring-Senior-Portrait-Session High School Seniors are one of my favorite things to photograph. I don’t know if all the dressing up, the numerous options of locations in Asheville, or the fact that they are getting ready to head out into the world and I get to capture the last part of their journey before reaching adulthood.

Stephanie was so wonderful to work with! She had so many fun ideas she wanted to try and she was not shy in front of the camera. Stephanie graduates from Asheville High in 2017!

Elizabeth & Stephen’s Engagement https://www.morganfordphoto.com/blog/2016/12/Elizabeth-Stephen-s-Engagement Stephen & Elizabeth were recently engaged on a trip to Colorado. They wanted to recreate the feeling they had staying in a small cabin in the woods and waking up to snow covered mountains everyday. Stephen proposed one quiet morning over coffee when it was just the two of them.

I am so glad Asheville has so many different locations to choose from when I am planning out my ideas. I was happy to be asked to capture their love!

Fall in the Mountains https://www.morganfordphoto.com/blog/2016/10/Fall-in-the-Mountains I love photographing families at their home. Everyone is so much more relaxed and able to enjoy themselves. It doesn’t hurt to have beautiful scenery right outside your front door either.

All the kids wanted to do was run around and play dress up. That is fine by me, I would rather see the children (and parents) having a good time!

Good Luck Shian!
