"Sunshine in the apple trees," or, "the orchard holds you dear." Sometimes I think in titles, framing moments in my mind as I find the angle and framing- for Morgan & Cole I was seeking a way for us to be intimate observers to a moment of stillness… #appleorchard #lovebearsfruit #mountainbride #mountainengagement #gettingmarriedinthemountains #appalachianbride #farmwedding #romanticmoment #ashevillewedding #romanticengagement #sunlitpeace #nikon #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...
