There are two kinds of "first looks" before a wedding- the most common is the cuter spouses seeing each other before the chaos of the day really kicks in… those are wonderful for all sorts of reasons, but I think my FAVORITE ones are parent first looks. Anna's dad seeing her in her wedding dress for the first time is totally priceless, and since we were able to coordinate it with the schedule, I was there to catch it. I love what I do. If you're thinking about your wedding or other photography needs, drop me a line and let's talk about it. Your spouse and your photos are the two things you walk away with- let me help you with one of them. #parentfirstlook #lovewhatyoudo #lookforthemoment #momentsthatcount #realwedding #realmoments #everybodycriesalittle #mountainbride #mountainwedding #romanticwedding #ashevillewedding #weddingbouquet #flowersforhours #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 our emotions. I am an artist, photographer, painter, poet, and parent. As your wedding photographer, I narrate the story of your day using the images we create together 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...
