Logan and Daniel, married in Asheville

We were thrilled to photograph Logan and Daniel's wedding recently in Asheville, North Carolina at Homewood. Each wedding and each couple that we photograph is meaningful to us, but there's something about Logan and Daniel that registers on a new level. Daniel was a student in my photography class at Southern Adventist University. I always enjoyed viewing his work, and even more, I enjoyed when he'd stay behind after class and visit.

Not long thereafter, Daniel underwent a very serious health scare. A tumor was discovered on his brain and tests revealed that he had cancer. Normally devastating news, Daniel and Logan determined to fight it with full force. Drastic changes in diet and lifestyle as well as a host of other medical treatments lead to a successful removal of the tumor and a complete cancer-free prognosis.

Certainly, undergoing multiple rounds of chemotherapy while completing their college degrees was a challenge. But Daniel and Logan credit their faith and courage, as well as the support of their families and friends, in getting them through the trials. So a sweet wedding was made even sweeter knowing what they have already undergone as a couple.





The broach ring that Logan wore had been passed down through her family for several generations


Their moment





We love the portrait session











The bridal party








The kids were absolutely beautiful






Waiting for the groom


The ceremony took place in the glen across the street from Homewood. It was beautiful!








Logan's dog Rose, was quite the guest of honor.








These were fantastic cakes! The groom's cake, check it out, a mountain board...




The first dance


Celebrate!!!!


Following the reception we headed downtown for a few images in a different setting.








Thanks so much, guys, for letting us capture your special day. It was an absolute blessing to be there with you. May God richly bless you as you enjoy this exciting journey.
