We were so excited to photograph Scott Avett for the first time for a recent article in The QC Exclusive.  

We are so proud of the shoot and we are thrilled with the image that was chosen for the front cover of the magazine!

And here are some of the other pictures from the shoot:

The Avett Brothers shared the cover shot of Scott on their website and social media.  It's always fun to see your hard work show up in such a public forum and to read the comments about it.  Here's a screenshot of it from their Facebook page:



They just wrapped up a live concert at the official Sundance movie premiere afterparty for American Epic and hopefully they are able to come home for a few days to rest.

A huge thanks to Scott Avett, Ramsuer Records  and the QC Exclusive along with my crew at Emby Taylor for making this all happen!

Congratulations to Allison & Keith! This wedding was a joy to shoot from start to finish. It was so clear to us throughout the day that this couple is madly in love with one another. There’s no pretending when it comes to a good love story! Allison was a stunning bride in her Kenneth Winston dress…our cameras so loved capturing this special day.

We can’t help but to smile looking at these images and reflecting on this incredible day. Kira was an absolutely gorgeous bride…..the word goddess would apply without a doubt. Kira and Evan are so in love and although there were jitters as the hours ticked by they weren’t due to nerves instead it was anticipation. Evan’s reaction & expression as his stunning bride approached up the aisle was so touching. We love these guys and all their friends and family that were there to support them.

Our stunning bride, Amanda, and her groom, Justin, were wed at Gold Hill Wesleyan Church, and their Reception followed at Gold Hill Park.
Their heart felt hand-written vows were wonderful, truly adding a special touch! Great father-daughter dance at this wedding too!
