This is one of my favorite bridal shots from 2015. It was taken during hurricane Joaquin in a small mountain lake resort in North Carolina. By this point on the wedding day, most of the roads in the area were closed and the dock this wonderful bride was going to be married on was under about a foot of water. Still, Rebecca and Drew were troopers! We all had a wonderful day, and I caught this image just as we were heading out to take photos with her & her bridesmaids. #bridalportrait #weddingdaycandid #weddingphoto #whatflood #nathanbaerreisphotography #realbrides #nikon #rollwithit
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...
