I first picked up a camera at age 10 when I found an old film point-and-shoot. From the first moment. I clicked the shutter, I was hooked. After studying darkroom photography for 3 years in high school, I came to Asheville to study photography formally where I got my BA degree from UNC Asheville. I’ve lived in Asheville for 8 years and started my business 4 years ago photographing weddings, small businesses, families and events. In that time, I’ve explored and photographed so much through my city and surrounding mountains that I’ve stumbled upon many fantastic secret spots perfect for portraits.

Where you'll be

My downtown tour begins at my studio just off Packs Square Park. We’ll stroll through the park pausing for a photo in the amphitheater in front of City Hall, then continue to Market St. for the perfect angle of the historic Jackson Building. From there, we’ll head to the Flat Iron building, walk by Battery Park where every Friday night boasts a lively drum circle, and finish up on Biltmore Ave beside some of Asheville’s most popular breweries.

This was an amazing experience at an incredible deal. Adrian goes out of her way to make everyone feel special and was able to customize the photo shoot based on our plans and sightseeing preferences. If you and your family have a spare hour or two definitely don’t pass this up.
