Allow me to introduce you to the new Mr. and Mrs. Stewart! It was an absolute joy to get to witness Erin & Garren join their lives together in the midst of family and friends. After spending the whole day with them, there is not one doubt in my mind that these two are so loved by everyone around them! From their sweet bridal party to their excited family – people were celebrating the love of Erin and Garren all day long.
In the months leading up to their wedding day, I knew this couple and this wedding would be a blessing to work with. I got the privilege of shooting their downtown Asheville engagement session and Erin’s romantic bridal portraits. As a photographer, it is my job to make sure my clients feel loved and valued throughout their whole time working with me – and I feel like Erin & Garren were doing that for ME! I will never get over how blessed I am to have such selfless and caring clients. It is truly a gift!
My very favorite parts of their wedding day was the first looks that were shared! Erin did a first look with her bridesmaids, her father, and of course, her groom. Each reaction to seeing Erin as a bride on her wedding day was priceless and emotional. I felt like I was witnesses some of the most special moments of their day. And, because Erin and Garren chose to share a first look before their ceremony, I was able to capture SO many beautiful portraits for them!
As you look through the images from Erin & Garren’s day, I hope you grow to love this couple as much as I do! Their love is absolutely the most special kind! Erin and Garren, thank you so much for letting me have a part in your beautiful day.
And of course, some love to Erin & Garren’s amazing vendor team!

Erin created her entire invitation suite herself! Isn’t it stunning?! I have such talented brides!
I’m pretty sure bridesmaid first looks are my FAVORITE thing to shoot. I mean look at those girls!
Erin was so giddy with excitement during her bridal portraits… she knew she would be seeing her groom in just a few short minutes!
Garren had such a fun group of guys with him for his big day – I loved hanging out with them!
A father’s reaction to seeing his little girl as a bride… priceless.
