Intimate wedding or elopement? 

Not sure on the difference between an elopement vs. Intimate Wedding? Well let’s give you a brief run down.

Elopement - (for a couple and up to 10 guests)


This is an intentionally small wedding celebration allowing you to go on some awesome adventures and have your most perfect day. 


Having a small group size allows for you to go out into some areas in nature that are not accessible to larger groups. Think of mountaintops, alpine lakes, waterfalls, all sorts of epic things.

Intimate Wedding, A Micro wedding, Small Wedding (there's a million different terms for it these days) - (For a couple and up to 50 Guests)

Typically for intimate weddings the couple will choose to go out an adventure just the two of them for sunrise or sunset and then spend the rest of the day celebrating with their favorite people. Many times for intimate weddings a venue or ceremony site is reserved.

We photograph primarily elopements & intimate weddings. We only offer video options for events with less than 30 guests. We do still offer photography services for larger weddings & events.

Best wedding photographer ever!!

Amy was nothing short of phenomenal! She was extremely responsive, met with us well in advance, answered all our questions and was early for every shoot. She was willing to do a family portrait session instead of an engagement session, which we loved! On the big day she was so easy to work with and made everything feel effortless. She captured every shot we asked for and so much more. She was able to capture all the happiness and love in our wedding and the pictures turned out so much better than I could have ever imagined. If you are in the North Carolina/ upstate South Carolina area there is no one better to photograph your big day!

Absolutely amazing!!!! ❤️❤️

Amy is truly incredible!! I didn't think I could love pictures so much until I received the first two rounds of teasers from our wedding! I can't imagine how much we will love the rest of them ❤️ she was amazing during the wedding as well!! For real laddies, she saved me MULTIPLE times from my guest, vendors,ect when everything started to get to be a bit to much, to get a quick second alone to just breathe! 😅 I couldn't imagine having our wedding without Amy! We rescheduled on her 3 times, due to covid. She was incredibly responsive and flexible the entire time!!! Waste no more time looking for a photographer, message Amy now! You'll be so happy you did!! 🥰❤️

Professional, Friendly, and Simply Amazing

Amy took the most beautiful photos for our intimate pandemic wedding. I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. Amy was quick to respond, fulfilled all of our requests, and a pleasure to work with. She had a teaser available for us the following day and had our full gallery available in less than a month. 

10 out of 10 would recommend!!
