Jen & Derek {Asheville Wedding Photographer}

I've known Jen & Derek for a while now, and I know that they have not had the easiest road. You see, Derek has been deployed several times during their relationship and even now, just a few months after the wedding they are in separate places once again for just a short while. This can't be easy, and it can't be easy planning a wedding when you aren't in the same physical space to do it together. But Jen & Derek have this all figured out, and it makes me respect them and their relationship even more. Jen just lights up around Derek, as he does around her as well. A cheesy way to say it? Maybe. But it is honestly true. It is easy to see why they are together and how they thrive as a couple!

Lets talk for just a minute about this location....a photographer's dream. Seriously, ridiculously beautiful. Really, the entire wedding day was pretty great! I'd say awesome even. They had such great details too - from the mad libs guest book to the lego cake, everything was perfect!

The perfect combination of beautiful location, beautiful weather, beautiful couple, fun details and great friends & family!

Jen & Derek, thanks again for asking me to be a part of your day. I really enjoyed meeting and working with your friends and family!

And big thanks to Jen & Chris for all your work that day as well :)
