I am a natural light photographer based out of Asheville, NC, specializing in elopements and portraits. I am a native of Asheville so of course I love the mountains and love to shoot in nature. My style is more editorial, so I also love shooting in the city and beautiful venues!

Q: What is your favorite thing about being a wedding vendor? 

A: I love being a vendor because I get to meet people from all over, from different backgrounds, and I always learn new things! Shooting elopements is special and so intimate. I have become more open, learned about different cultures, and gotten to experience and witness true love.

Q: Tell us about your favorite elopement! 

A: My favorite elopement was shooting on Hawksbill Mountain in the Linville Gorge. My couple was amazing, and they were down for anything. We hiked for about 45 minutes straight up and go there in perfect time for the golden hour, everything was literally perfect. Hikers at the top loved the wedding, and some were even crying when they read their vows.

Q: Is there a wedding detail on your bucket list? 

A: I would love to shoot on an island!

“Tia was so so fun to work with! She made us comfortable, had fun with us and was so go with the flow! She made the process incredibly easy especially when our original photographer cancelled last minute! We love our photos and got them back so quickly! Highly recommend her to everyone.”
