Dress shots can go either way- I love to place the dress in the context of the wedding somehow… either in the reception area, a nice stairwell or other found setting, or (as in this case) out where the ceremony will take place! Most weddings at McGuire's Millrace Farm are held in the birches (with good reason- it's a gorgeous setting) so Anna & Trey's was a nice change of pace, out next to the pavilion with Peachtree Mountain and an old red barn as a backdrop. There are few settings in the world as picturesque as this. #ilovemyjob #myclientsarethebest #weddingdress #dressphoto #weddingdressphoto #checkoutthedetail #westernNCphotographer #romanticwedding #wncphotographer #mountainwedding #ashevillewedding #perfectweddingday #nikon #nathanbaerreisphotography

Serious musicians get things done! I love musician portraits for all sorts of reasons- but mostly because it's fun to try to capture the essence of another artist and show it through my eyes. Heidi is driven to pursue her music, and she's great as a consequence of that. Motivation is hard for artists (sometimes) so I love seeing it. #musicianphotography #musicianportrait #focus #strength #followyourpassion #makeyourjoyyourlife #bluesmusician #nikon #nathanbaerreisphotography

An engagement session is a good way to get to know your photographer before your wedding day! If you are too far away to have an engagement session, I highly advise pulling out some time to talk on the phone- you can get a conversation started by asking questions about wedding day scheduling, or offering ideas for your bridal party shots, but the goal is to just get talking. As a photographer, the more I know about you, the more smooth and effective our time together will be- even if it means we're going to ditch the normal shots and head straight out into the woods! #letsgoforahike #adventurouscouple #uniqueimages #realmoments #beautifulworld #mountainwedding #trysomethingnew #mindthethorns #nikon #naturalbeauty #nathanbaerreisphotography

These two flower girls were a totally adorable part of Lindsay and Alex's wedding in January 2016! Kids are always good for adding a little spice to the day- one good tip for having really young children in your wedding is to include some slightly older ones too! The littler ones will tend to follow the lead of the older ones, and that will sometimes help ease the spontaneous laughter, tears, and stage fright that frequently goes along with having anyone 6 or under in the wedding party. #ashevillewedding #januarywedding #indoorwedding #flowergirls #cutekids #weddingparty #theyheldstilljustlongenough #beforetheceremony #whencanwehavecake #nikon #nathanbaerreisphotography
