Your Adventure Guides

We’re more than just photographers. We’re your trusted companions, your accomplices, the seconds in your corner as you bravely step onto the canvas of a new phase.

The Guardians of Your Experience

Your wedding day will feel like a million things—surreal, overwhelming, relaxing, exciting, sweet, tender, deep. We honor the range of emotions couples experience as they mark the beginning of a new phase together. Our job is to facilitate, even protect those emotions. Both in the planning stage and on the day itself we will work to create space for genuine emotions to be felt, and by capturing them in images, we make sure you’ll always be able to return to and relive those beautiful moments.

The Wilder Weddings Difference

The Wilder Weddings Difference

Permission to Do What You Want

As you start to plan your wedding, you may have a chorus of voices chiming in about what your day should look like. We’re not into that. We're here to listen to you, to talk through your hopes and dreams and your worries and doubts, and bring it all together into the most perfect day for the two of you. We're your cheerleaders, your hype crew, your biggest advocates. We want you to have the best day ever, and we're here to help make that happen.

Timeline Creation

True emotion needs lots of time and space to be felt. We know how to organize your day so you have lots of time to slow down, enjoy the people you're with, and actually have FUN on your wedding day! We don’t have pre-made itineraries or cookie-cutter timelines; we design each and every wedding and elopement itinerary specifically for you.

Coverage By the Hour or All-Day/Unlimited

The last thing we want you thinking about on your wedding day is a ticking clock, so we offer all-day/unlimited packages to make room for everything you’ve imagined. But if your celebration is more limited in scope, we also offer hourly packages starting at three hours.

Location Scouting

We’ve lived in Western NC for 7 years and know all the best secret, locals-only spots that you won’t find in a Google search for “best places to elope in Asheville.” Getting married outside of the Appalachians? We’ve still got your back; we love scouting trails, finding hidden gems, and discovering unknown places that offer privacy and stunning views.

Vendor Recommendations

Need someone to do your hair and makeup at 2 a.m. for your sunrise elopement? We got you. Want a 3-course meal cooked over a campfire by a gourmet chef? We know a guy. We’ll connect you to amazing vendors to help you build a team of people as passionate about creating an unforgettable experience as we are.

Preparations for the Unexpected

We’ve learned a thing or two about what makes a day in the wilderness magical and amazing, and what can make an adventure go south. We bring all of the supplies we know you might forget to keep your day stress-free, flyaway-free, and blister-free, so you can focus on each other.

Weather Control

Well, we haven’t quite figured out how to control the weather, but we do help couples plan backup locations, bring rain gear and blankets, and embrace whatever happens. Some of the most magical moments happen when the weather doesn’t cooperate!

Packages and Pricing

Since we’re a collective of photographers with different passions, experience-levels, and bed-times (Kelsey’s got a 4-year-old), we can offer a variety of packages to accommodate many budgets and wedding styles. We’ve designed our packages around the types of weddings that bring us the most joy and best fit our individual styles. To make sure our pricing aligns with your budget, our starting prices are listed below. We’ll share our full packages on request.

No matter how your day looks, each package includes:

Travel Fees To and From Your Location

Travel anywhere within 3 hours of Asheville that is accessible by 2WD is included. This means the mountains of Virginia and Georgia are fair game, as well as any far-flung remote area of the NC Appalachians.
