Can you believe we are already booking sessions for this fall? Fall here in the mountains is amazing. Here is a throw back to a gorgeous session we did not get blogged from last fall!
Jessie and Ryan could not have asked for better weather or color for their Asheville engagement session. We started our session off at the gorgeous Botanical Gardens at UNCA and ended our session walking around the “oh so cool” downtown area.
These two have SO much chemistry. You would never know they don’t have their photos taken every day!
And you know it is going to be a fun session when the couple shows up with a beautiful Husky.
A quick outfit change and onward to downtown A-town.
They hired me for an extra long session so we could also get in some city night shots!
We are excited to get to share in this awesome couple’s big day in 2018!
First comes the love…
Then comes the marriage…
Then thanks to the honeymoon, this happened…
And now we have a sweet little Lincoln.
What a ride these past few years have been for Savanah and Jimmy. What a blessing to be there to capture their journey, their story.
It was an honor to get to travel to their home in Charlotte to do a Lifestyle family session in their home. These sessions are super fun and unique to every family. For instance… this room will change SO much over the course of Lincoln’s lifetime. I wanted to capture it now just as it is.
The real moments. A not so happy baby getting his diaper changed!
Those sweet baby loving moments. Lincoln was only 7 days old during this shoot. Savanah had a rough delivery. A intensely long labor ending in a C-section. She was so tired and her poor feet and legs were so swollen. This moment to me says it all. A fierce warrior resting with her prized possession… Yes, she is tired but now knows the worth of her struggle. He is perfect.
I knew Jimmy was going to be a great daddy when during the maternity session he couldn’t stop loving on Savanah’s preggo belly. He would talk to his unborn baby and speak loving words to him.
I have never seen a dog so fiercely protective and interested in a baby before! Their dog, Moose was simply smitten with Lincoln. It was precious. Moose wondered what I was doing there and it took him an hour to trust me enough to leave the room. So needless to say he was in a lot of the photos!
Is that a little smile Lincoln?
Welcome little buddy! We can’t wait to see what life has in store for you.
2017 was a great year for Mozingo Photography. Our goal this year was 30 weddings and thanks to our amazing clients and the support of local venues and wedding professionals we met that goal! We are grateful for the opportunity to share in so many amazing wedding days and we made some new friends this year for sure!
As Asheville wedding photographers the majority of our couples are from other parts of the country but choose to have a destination wedding here in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Our year started off with a local couple though! Lisa and Will had a January wedding here in Asheville.
