Who are we?
We are a team of 4 Documentary Wedding Photographers. There are never any stiff or unnatural photos - ever. We're based out of Asheville, NC, but we serve the Charlotte and Greenville, SC areas as well. We also regularly travel to the Caribbean and beyond.
Congrats on your engagement!
Firstly, we’d like to congratulate you on this exciting time in your life. The next year will fly by with preparations, invitations and anticipation. It seems like just last year that we were planning our wedding. Now, with our 10th anniversary behind us and our 2nd child with us, we are reminded what an amazing time of life it is to be preparing for a wedding! Congrats and ENJOY it!
Relax! We’ve done this before!
We have people ask us all the time if we’re comfortable photographing a wedding at a venue that we haven’t been to before. ABSOLUTELY! Nick has photographed more than 450 weddings in the last 10 years and Maddy is over her 100 wedding mark. We love our job for so many reasons, but more than anything we love getting the opportunity to see so many new places and hang out with people on their happiest day. Weddings have taken us across the globe and to mountains, glaciers, zoos, oceans, piers, boats, airplanes, helicopters, golf courses, fields, rivers, gardens, forests and almost anything else you can imagine. This experience combined with consistently original images is what led Nick to be named one of the top 50 wedding photographers in the country. Our work has been featured in numerous magazines and almost every time, it was our first time at that venue. If any of us is asked to shoot at a venue that we haven’t been to before, we always make sure to go ahead of the wedding and look for the best spots and angles and get information about where things are going to happen.
So… why are we different?
By now I’m sure you’re on your 1,012th wedding photography website and you don’t know anymore who you’ve contacted and what sites you’ve seen already. Believe me, we’ve been there. We believe what sets us apart from others is our ability to capture the emotion and joy of the wedding day without intruding on the events. We have had so many people tell us over the years that they couldn’t believe they’d ended up with so many photos of what was going on – they had no idea we were even taking pictures. This “ninja-style” (as Nick likes to jokingly say), combined with an eye for photojournalism is what allows us to produce so many images with a creative style, but also capture the events taking place.
Where do we go from here?
Everything about our company is about making your life easy. Everything from our booking process to the album design will be as easy for you as possible. We regularly do bookings over the phone and internet. From there it can all be done via email. We have so many clients from outside the Asheville area, that we are very used to providing a complete service over the phone and via email. We have even been known to Skype and FaceTime if you’d like to “meet us” face to face. Of course, if you’re in town you’d like to come by our office in Hendersonville, you’re very welcome – we love to get visitors! If there is anything that we can do for you, please just let us know.

A Top Pick in AVL for Good Reason
From bright sun during the ceremony, to dim dinner lighting, to a pavilion lit only by strand lights, Nick rolled with the punches on the spot and delivered INCREDIBLE and unique photos despite what many photographers may have struggled with. He captured a beautiful mix of posed and candid images that embodied our relationship and the feeling we wanted for our wedding (intimate, classy, and incredibly fun!) He was very attentive, learning I had special wine brought down for the day and that I made all of the dinnerware myself, and took it upon himself to specifically photograph those things without being asked. I impulsively hired Nick for an extra hour two weeks out and added a first look with my dad, which he adjusted for graciously. Hiring the perfect photographer was at the very top of our must-have list, and we are delighted with our choice. Communicate what you'd like in advance, relax, and let Nick run with it-- you will not be disappointed. We will cherish our wedding photos for the rest of our lives!Sent on 02/24/2020

Gorgeous Pictures and Excellent Service
Nick did just a fantastic job. He knew our venue very well (Grove Park Inn) and it showed. He was very efficient, so we got all the pictures we wanted and then some. The final photos are a complete dream. He has such an eye to capture the magic and love from that day; we couldn't be happier with the images.Sent on 03/23/2020

Awesome to work with and beautiful memories!
We had a destination wedding in Asheville, NC at Jump off Rock and worked with Nick. He was so easy to work with and was able to work with us very well, even through phone calls and emails. We only had Nick for a few hours but he was able to capture every image I imagined plus some. The turn around time was a expected and promised. The pictures were some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen. We are so glad we chose to go with Blue Bend Photography and would 110% recommend them to anyone.Sent on 10/21/2019
