Late summer afternoon on the farm, last fall. The peace of these mountains astounds me every time I wander out amongst them- they're gentle and comforting, worn softer by eons of wind, rain, and habitation than their (relatively) young cousins out West. The sense of wisdom and presence is palpable in the earth of the Southern Appalachians, and in the western NC spread in particular. I find myself seeking the calm comfort of the trees and rushing creeks here, especially in tumultuous times. #peaceofthemountains #farmstead #mountainwedding #appalachianwedding #southernappalachians #oldredbarn #nikon #fallmountains #nathanbaerreisphotography
I'm an artist living in rural western NC. I photograph weddings, write poems, paint, create art and parent my eleven-year-old son. I love the smell of the earth after a rainstorm, the heat of old buildings on a summer night, and the crunch of new snow underfoot... life is filled with passions, everywhere!
Our lives are a series of breaths punctuated and defined by emotional strength. I am an artist, photographer, painter, poet, and parent. I seek to create images that are important to you and me. As your wedding photographer, I narrate the story of your day with images in an attempt to bring back the scent of the flowers, the feel of the sunshine, the rush of your breath after that first dance... connect with me and let's talk about how you want to remember your moments...
